Automated Insect Screens for Outdoor Bar
Automated Insect Screens for Outdoor Bar

Power screens

Our automated power screens deliver style and substance, effectively managing home climate control by regulating glare, heat build, ventilation and insect ingress on large openings such as bifold and sliding doors.

Motorised screens can be fitted to existing openings but work best when fully recessed and integrated into your property as a ‘captured, four-sided’ product – completely disappearing when not in use. More options are available for an internal fitting – just speak to our sales teams to find out more.

Screen metalwork can be finished in any RAL colour too, matching your décor and integrating seamlessly and beautifully into the home. Screens can be fitted in 4 to 6 weeks from survey.

Make bifolds, better

Power screens are the perfect partner for bifold or sliding doors, allowing you to maximise the light, retain clean architectural lines and keep the bugs at bay. Rooms with large glazed areas are susceptible to intense heat in the summer months – Phantom power screens manage the climate control problem better than blinds because they keep the air flowing and don’t obliterate your view.

Home is where the smart is…

Including smart features to improve your home environment makes great sense when you’re building or extending. Take control via your phone or tablet; add sun and wind-detectors, or link them to home or building automation systems, and of course Alexa, Siri and Cortana.

Then choose the mesh that best suits your needs – our range of super-hi-tech performance fabrics includes solar shading mesh, privacy and fine insect meshes.


All our high-performance meshes are rain and wind resistant and held on all sides by a robust zip system – performing well, even outdoors with external fitting.

Inspired thinking, transformative living

As well as weather sensing, automated screens can work with GPS to automatically deploy with seasonal daylight changes. We use Somfy’s Tahoma® app to give you complete and intuitive control – over the internet or via your computer, smartphone or tablet. How’s that for clever?

“Our power screen looks and feels part of the structure of the roof and door frame, no one notices it or realises it’s there until we lower it. It’s a great solution, it has a luxurious feel and definitely has the wow factor – we love it.”

Mr & Mrs Chidley

“They’re amazing, when we’re in here cooking and entertaining, the power screens work brilliantly, we can really enjoy this space and get the best of the outside air without the nuisance of bugs”

Mr & Mrs Greenfield

“We’re delighted – both functionally and aesthetically; you’d barely know our power screen was there.”

Mr & Mrs Allen

“The electric screens you fitted are a great help in this hot weather in very hot London. It makes such a difference to be able to open the doors and windows for breeze.”

L Hodgson

“Architects and homeowners may not consider the downside of large openings and glazed ceilings – the flies are attracted by the warmth and light and become trapped inside. The installation of my motorised screens was completed in around half a day with no issues at all. Phantom Screens conducted themselves professionally which gave me great confidence and reassurance that I was purchasing a high-quality product. People think screens can corrupt architectural design; my advice is — they don’t, you don’t notice them at all, they’re a restrained part of the exterior frame and add real value to light, open living spaces.”

Mrs Chidler

“We had Retractable screens fitted to conservatory windows so can now enjoy a breeze without the intrusion of flying insects from the garden. Thank you, this has been a marvellous investment. I can’t understand why the conservatory installers don’t offer this an option when providing quotations.”

Christina Crosby

“Thank you so much, from the first call to finishing, the job has been a great service. It is so nice to see such good and reliable customer service”


“My impression of fly screens was one of outdated strips of plastic or ugly contraptions attached to windows. Phantom Power Screens looked completely different and we were encouraged by the positive reviews they’d been given by other customers. We’re delighted with their discrete presence and we’re all getting used to them as an integral part of the house. We’d been used to keeping all the doors closed to stop the flies coming in, now we can’t wait to open them.”

Mrs Riley

“We would just like to say how thrilled we are with this product, it’s wonderful to open our bedroom window without flies etc coming in. We live in quite a wooded area and have even had a small bird fly in once! We have already recommended this product to family and friends. Thankyou”

Mr & Mrs Swan

“We have several fitted throughout our property, they are well worth the money. Windows and doors can be left open all day and no flies or other pesky insects can get in!”

Mr K Field

“Clean and tidy installation and very pleased with the quality of our automated power screens as this is our second installation having had time to use the first set installed on the extension doors.”

Mr D Poultney

“We ordered four motorised fly screens for our windows and one for the patio doors. Installation was completed within 2 hours. The colour match was perfect although I had reservations because I had to submit a RAL reference. But fortunately, I obtained the window frame spec. from the builder with which the paint finishers were familiar. Perfect match to our timber window frames. Pleasant to have fresh air without the hassle of insects – I fully recommend Phantom Screens UK for Fly Screens. Well done to all staff. Many thanks”

  • All Phantom Power Screens come with a Phantom Limited two year Warranty to make sure that you are completely satisfied with our products.
  • The warranty covers the screens (fitted by Phantom-trained local design and fitting experts, for the original owner). It cannot be transferred to new homeowners and the screens will not be covered if they are moved to a new address.
  • The warranty covers the paint finish and mechanical parts of the screen but not the mesh itself. The mesh of your Phantom Screen is a serviceable part and will eventually need to be replaced. This can be organised with your local design and fitting expert.
  • Call out, labour and fitting of warrantied parts is not covered by this warranty.
  • For the Executive system, the warranty also covers the motors for 2 years and this is backed up by the manufacturer.
