Power Blind Solar Shading in Surrey

Power Blind Solar Shading in Surrey

Tucked away in a stunning rural village in Surrey is this stylish, contemporary property – now made practical thanks to a Phantom Screens install.

Passionate about high-quality design, these customers were not going to settle for second-best when improving their living environment. So, upon seeing the craftmanship that goes into each handmade Phantom Screen, they got in touch.

At the back of this fantastic property is a modern kitchen/diner with a rooflight and bifold doors which open up to a cosy south-facing garden.

The rooflight glazing above the dining table provides desirable extra sunlight. However, our customers found that with the joys of additional natural light come issues of harsh solar glare and excess heat build. Looking for a solar solution and knowing that Phantom Screens are shading experts, they contacted us.

An automated rooflight blind with a white screen fabric was installed to help control the excessive heat build and solar glare. This colour was chosen because it blends in with the white walls around it and when deployed, the sunlight creates a soft, warm tone in the dining area.

Now, at the touch of button, the blind will deploy, providing comfortable solar shading whenever the homeowners need it. See how another happy customer has adapted their home with power blinds here.

A power screen was also installed to the set of bifold doors. For this screen, the customers chose our standard 18:14 black mesh as its primary purpose is for insect protection. When deployed, this allows bug-free natural ventilation to flow through the house – further helping to prevent excessive heat build.

The rooflight blind and screen were tailor made in our factory in Peterborough and then installed by our Phantom Screens fitters at no extra cost.

Wall switches were installed to make the rooflight blind and Power Screen feel more a part of the fabric of the home. Both the rooflight blind and Power Screen can also be controlled via Somfy remote controls.

For further integration, our screens and motorised blinds come with smart features including the ability to connect to a home automation system. This allows them to be controlled via smart speaker or remotely from a smartphone or tablet.

Now our customers are able to fully enjoy their upgraded kitchen/diner without excessive solar gains and unwanted bugs!
