Overview: The homeowners have a beautiful home on the water with a stunning view of Jamestown Bay (Mackerel Cove). The expansive porch on the back of their home is an ideal setting for enjoying the views in privacy or entertaining friends and guests. The porch was added to the home by the homeowners and they went to great lengths to ensure that it matches the current architecture of the home. Need: During the warmer months, the homeowners try to spend as much time on their porch as possible to enjoy
the salt air and spectacular views. However, on most days, they were driven indoors by biting insects after only a few minutes. They needed a screening solution that provided insect protection, while allowing them to preserve the clear view of the water without taking away from the elegance of the home.
Solution: The homeowners decided that retractable screens would be the only screening solution suitable for
their porch. In order to maintain the architectural integrity, the homeowner’s insisted the screens must retract completely out-of-sight when not in use. Phantom’s Motorized Executive Retractable Screens were installed in recessed housings and are completely invisible when not in use. When needed for insect protection, the screens appear at the touch of a button on a remote control unit or the wall mounted control panel. Because strong breezes often come off the water, the screens are also connected to a wind sensor, which protects the screens from damage by automatically raising them when the wind reaches 40 MPH. The homeowners say that the screens have made their porch a wonderful and enjoyable outdoor extension of their home that they can use any time of day. When winter arrives, the screens are safely stored in their recessed housings until they are needed the following spring.
