The Transition
Blending Indoor & Outdoor Living Spaces
May, 2019 - Issue #176
In Santa Clarita, our near-constant great weather means that we can expand our living spaces into our yards.
The bonus square footage is only of value, though, if we make our exterior spaces feel as good as our interior -
and blend the two areas seamlessly so that the entire home flows.

Bring the Outdoors In

with Retractable Screens
Here's a home-design trend that's going nowhere fast: cultivating indoor and outdoor environments that can blend seamlessly, creating the perfect transitional living space.

During the summer months, homeowners are eager to step outside and enjoy their home's outdoor living areas with friends and family or open their multi-panel wall systems to enjoy their stunning view.

There's nothing like being able to leave folding-door systems wide open to enjoy the breeze without letting the elements in. Phantom's retractable wall screens for multi-panel systems are the perfect screening solution for oversized doorways that disappear out of sight when not in use.

Historically, due to their vast size, these expansive openings would often go unscreened. With Phantom Screens, homeowners can experience the intended use of the folding door system without the concern of compromising their view.

Phantom's retractable wall screens covers doorways and openings up to 24 feet wide and 10 feet high - and disappear out of sight when not in use. They feature a thumb latch integrated into the handle for controlled openings, making it easy to use, quiet to operate and secure from unintended openings.

The mesh is completely secured in the track to prevent blow-outs in breezy conditions; it also offers extra security for pets, allowing them to be contained in your desired space. The highlight of this retractable screen is its customizable stopping points for easy in and out access, allowing homeowners to personalize where they would like the screen to open and close.

Phantom's screens are a visually-appealing, easily-integrated solution for the common drawbacks of an outdoor lifestyle. Plus, you can choose from one of their standard colors, wood-grain options or custom color match to your home's design. They also offer various mesh options including insect, solar protection and additional privacy.
