- The beautiful new XL manual wall screen from Phantom is perfect for oversized sliding doors.

When I finally arrive I am greeted by Muskoka’s crisp evening breeze that I have grown up to love; and the bugs which I had grown to resent cottage living for. Although the weather was perfect, I had to sit inside reading rather than enjoying lakeside living due to the barrage of bugs. This experience is not an isolated one - it's a problem that so many others have, and it limits the enjoyment of our cottage summers.

And frequently in newer cottages - as in homes in the city - door openings are getting bigger. Oversized sliders and double French doors overlook our lovely lake views, and traditional screen solutions are just not big enough.

It is with this in mind that Phantom Screens newest product innovation was born - something a lot bigger than the average retractable screen! Phantom's new extra wide retractable wall screen - fondly nicknamed the XL - can cover openings up to 24 feet wide and 10 feet high while using a double unit and 12 feet wide and 10 feet high using a single unit. They are the ideal solution for oversized door systems.

This manually operated retractable screen retracts horizontally and completely out of sight when not in use. While extended, the mesh is secured in the track to prevent blow-outs in breezy conditions. It also features customizable stopping points along the track for easy in and out access.

This innovative new screen is ideal for large sliding glass doors, and folding glass walls. What;s best, all Phantom Screens products are backed by a leading warranty and come prefessionally installed by factory trained Phantom Screens representatives.

With this great solution, you're free to sit outdoors at the cottage, or wherever your weekend relazation takes you. And wherever that is, enjoy your weekend and remember to open up your door to good things!
