June 5, 2023

Experience the magic of motorized retractable screens and witness the remarkable transformation of homes in Whitby, Ontario. Discover how Phantom Screens has brought happiness and extended outdoor living space to countless families, enabling them to watch movies or their favourite sports in a whole new setting.

The Beauty of Motorized Retractable Screens

Phantom motorized screens are the perfect solution for large openings, as they easily retract out of sight with a simple touch of a button. Suitable for all large openings, motorized Phantom Screens blend with any architectural style and suit the various needs of families. Each Phantom screen operates independently, allowing homeowners to stop them at any point on the tracks to suit their preferences for added privacy, insect and debris protection, and more. Additionally, Phantom has partnered with Somfy® to integrate with most home automation systems, including Lutron®, Crestron®, and smartphone devices.

A Whitby Success Story

A young couple from Whitby, ON recently sought out motorized retractable screens for their new outdoor living space. With a newborn in the home, they were looking for a comfortable place to relax as a family while also protecting their privacy from the sun and neighbours. Ontario Screens Systems and Phantom Screens were able to meet their needs by installing three motorized privacy screens in the backyard of their house in the Whitby neighbourhood. The screens work independently, allowing the homeowners to fully open their yard or create a closed-off area for rest, movie-watching, sports cheering, or simply enjoying each other’s company in peace. They now have the freedom to customize their home and create a private paradise.


At Ontario Screen Systems, we have installed Phantom Screens in many homes since 1994, and it is always heartwarming to hear how much of a difference they make. The same couple, owners of the house above, shared their positive experiences with us. They were impressed by the smooth and professional installation process, and they now enjoy spending time outdoors with their newborn. On the very first day when they used the screens, it was a warm and sunny day, when they hosted a barbecue and relaxed in their pergola, which was protected by Phantom Screens. They even invited their friends over, who were equally impressed by the screens and the transformation they brought to the family’s backyard. It’s great to see how much potential a simple addition like Phantom Screens can bring to an outdoor living space.
