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.

Find lots of helpful details, including brochures and technical drawings, on our page for architects here.

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.

Had an excellent experience working with Phantom Screens from the start to finish of our project. Office team, site surveyor and installer were all excellent and straightforward for work with. Extremely happy with the finished product which meets our needs perfectly. A lot of positive comments from clients, friends and family who have seen it. Thanks to you all.

Phantom screens have been fantastic since I first contacted them. Alison and Zoe provided stellar customer service! I required a very large fly screen for kitchen bifolds which a previous supplier hadn’t been able to do after failed install due to size. Jo who installed the fly screen today was polite, hard working and provided a great service. Super pleased with everything!

We installed screens on all our windows (casement+velux) and the garden door, and are very happy with the result. The staff at Phantom Screens was very professional and helpful at every stage of the process. Even at the appointment for taking measurements, you can tell they know what they're doing, and they pointed us to many details that we would need to be aware of. The sales was honest by telling us upfront that the screens aren't necessarily pet-friendly (we have a cat at home). Fortunately our cat is very calm and doesn't try to climb or destroy the screens :) Another important thing is that you don't pay 100% upfront, just a 50% deposit and the rest is upon completion, which gives extra peace of mind. I certainly recommend this company!

My wife ordered screens for our home last year as we have had a major refurbishment project carried out since last year. She ordered from Mike but a year on we had the screens installed by Jamie and Joe. I would like to say a special thank you to Jamie who went beyond the line and carried out the installation to highest excellent work . Would recommend phantom without hesitation not the cheapest but the best in the market you definitely get a high end product with these chaps and ladies. Also thanks to Zoe very nice lady.

I am delighted with my new Phantom Screen- living near a river, I was looking for a product that would prevent flies from getting into my flat- I look forward to the screen doing the job over the summer! The screen has fitted seamlessly into the right hand side of my door frame. Phantom Screens made the process from initial query through to installation very straightforward. I had brilliant service from Zoe at Head Office & Joe who installed my screen. I would definitely recommend!
