Better by design

Planning in screens or blinds into the design of the home provides more freedom with installation – including the option to have recessed screens.

Integrating screens into your home during the build process means they can be hidden away when not in use, creating a slick look. This is very popular with modern homeowners, design geeks, and lovers of home automation.

Not ready until after the build? Don’t worry! All Phantom Screens and blinds can be retro-fitted to existing doors and windows.

Beat the heat

Screens for solar shading reduce excessive heat build, harsh solar glare, and prevent solar staining, giving you greater climate control and helping your furniture last longer.

All new residential buildings must now comply with Part O (overheating) building regulations. This means new homes must be designed to prevent overheating through acceptable strategies laid out in the Part O regulations.

External Solar Screens (fitted on the outside of the glass door or window) are approved under Part O as a suitable method of limiting solar gains and preventing overheating. Read more here.

Architects’ drawings help our team understand how the screen relates to the intended build

An architect’s best friend

We have many years’ experience working closely with architects on self build projects – including on their own homes. See two installs where our Power Screens were sought after by architects for their properties in Old Windsor and in Stamford.

Phantom Screens are durable, weather-resistant and come in a range of fabrics and colours. From our standard 55% UV block insect protection mesh to our 90% UV block solar screen mesh, all the way up to a full blackout blind. Tell us your needs and we’ll find the perfect solution for you.

Why you need insect screens

Screens for insect protection allow you to ventilate your home with natural, fresh air whilst keeping the bugs outside. Screens prevent insects, spiders, dust, allergens, cob webs and more from entering your home. This helps to reduce harmful germs and bacteria brought in by flies and keeps your home more hygienic.

Among the additional benefits of screens is increased solar management – helping you reduce solar gains, glare, staining and excessive heat build. Learn more on our shading and ventilation page.

Did you know? As you enjoy natural ventilation with your doors and windows open, screens can also help you save on air conditioning bills and reduce your carbon footprint! For this reason, they are extremely popular in energy efficient properties, including ones which follow Passive House (Passivhaus) building standards.

By installing screens, you’re future proofing and investing in your home. Want to know more about insect screens? Read our blog post for more details.

Automated Power Screens allow you to keep the fresh air flowing through your home whilst keeping unwanted flies and mosquitoes out.

I had a great experience with Phantom Screens. They have been very helpful to find the best option for me. Service was fast and efficient. Joe, the fitter who installed the screen, was polite and professional and he did an amazing job. I appreciated his attention to details and the general high quality of his service. He exceeded my expectations therefore I would highly recommend them!

We contacted Phantom Screens to add fly screens to our winter garden. We were looking for a bespoke solution that would fit the existing look of the room but also be robust enough to prevent our cat from jumping off the windows when open. We are very happy to say that they delivered on all of these points with full marks. From the start, they were very professional as they provided us with various options for our slightly odd situation. They then sent an engineer our way to assess the situation in person and provide a more detailed quote. After that, a second visit was arranged to take samples of the colour of the windows, as well as precise measurements to install some supports that were needed to run the guides on the sides of the windows. On the day of the installation, the two engineers took just shy of three hours to do an impeccable job - they performed the work without any mess and with minor to no disruption to us. The end result is even better than what we were expecting! The screens look like they were there from the beginning, and they disappear with the rest of the window when they are closed. Even when open, they don't take too much light away from the room, which is an added bonus. Plus, they feel sturdy enough to keep our cat from jumping off the window. They also went the extra mile by installing a metallic cover at the bottom of the balustrade to cover a gap that our cat would be able to sneak through - effectively making the screens useless. Overall, a very professional and positive experience that's totally worth the cost (which itself is not exceedingly high either). Highly recommended!

Fabulous product! I have been waiting a few months as it is made to measure but was definitely worth the wait, so looking forward to using next summer. The measuring and quote process was very quick efficient and then James fitted it this morning with great skill and speed and cleaned up completely afterwards. All working perfectly, thank you team Phantom.

We recently had more screens added to our windows, we'll be adding one to the patio door next year. The screens really are excellent, the service from start to finish was faultless. Jamie, who fitted all the screens we've got, has done a great job. I would thoroughly recommend this company and product if you want windows open without any uninvited guests.
