This week on the blog we thought it would be interesting to show you how Phantom Screens can enhance another very cool product on the market that is increasingly popular in luxury homes, especially homes where the view outside is just as special as the home itself.
As highlighted by HGTV, large folding glass doors and walls are a popular choice for homeowners who want to maximize the natural light throughout the house and make their outdoor view a central part of their home décor. These large folding glass doors offer the homeowner countless options for converting their indoor living space to an outdoor living space whenever they desire. We are seeing many homeowners make use of the innovative Nanawall products, which offer a beautiful indoor to outdoor living experience.
As with all door openings, the issue of pesky insect intrusions remains, no matter how luxurious the home. Here in the south, you just can’t have an entire open wall and not be inundated with gnats, mosquitos, and other uninvited guests. But, the Phantom Screens Executive line of products can be made to fit these large openings occupied by folding glass doors and walls. Because of the unique way these glass walls and doors fold out, it is common to believe that there is no way to screen these spaces when necessary. Not only does Phantom Screens offer a way to screen these spaces, but the screens are discreet, retractable, and professionally installed so as not to interfere with the look of the glass door or wall.
If you currently have or are considering a large open space for your home that will utilize large glass folding walls or doors but you are worried about opening your home up to more than just the view, contact Retracting Solutions to discuss your options. We have a few projects in the works that will illustrate the use of screens over the large openings discussed in this post, but here are a few from a recent new construction project that provides a retractable screen over doors that fold all the way out and cover a significant portion of the wall, just to give you an idea of how it works.
