We recently had the opportunity to install a Phantom Executive retractable screen in Oldsmar, FL (That’s just West of Tampa in Pinellas County). Our customer was not able to enjoy her outside seating area on her patio due to the intense sun and glare she was experiencing. One of her favorite pass-times is reading out in the fresh air, but she was unable to read her book due to the glare and heat from her western exposure. In order to solve that problem, a Phantom retractable shade screen was installed between two aluminum pillars on her patio. She chose a white cassette to blend in seamlessly with the rest of her pool enclosure. In order to provide solar shade in additiona to insect protection, she went with a 90% block solar screen in a charcoal color, which as the name suggests, blocks ninety percent of the sun. This sun screen will provide cooling shade while still maintaining her view and airflow. Phantom Executive screens are motorized so you have the choice of shade or sun at the touch of a button. We are finding that customers all over Hillsborough and Pinellas county are catching on to what these retractable screens have to offer. Here are some photos of one in action.
