Tri-State Retractable Screens

Mesh Options

Phantom’s wide range of mesh options help you make any space a more comfortable and attractive living environment. You can choose from mesh types that provide insect protection, natural ventilation, increased privacy, improved daylight, and solar heat control.

The mesh openness factor determines the amount of heat, light, and air that enters a room. A more open fabric allows the breeze and heat to enter the living space, while tighter meshes block more sunlight and keep the space cooler.

Depending on your screening needs, Tri-State Screens will recommend the best mesh choice for your retractable door screens.

These mesh samples are to be used only as a general guide. Please review actual mesh samples for true accuracy.

Insect Mesh

Ideal where insects are a problem, this mesh type reduces up to 55% of UV rays. Insect mesh also features a higher openness factor and is recommended for large openings, ventilation, and visibility to the outside.

Solar Mesh

Mesh types in this category reduce heat and glare by up to 75% and keep insects out. Solar mesh is perfect for keeping the interior spaces cooler when the screens are lowered, and protecting your carpets, drapes, and furniture from fading.

Privacy Mesh

Available in multiple colors, this mesh type blocks up to 90% of UV rays. Thicker weaves provide extra solar protection and added privacy.


Phantom's retractable window screens feature BetterVue mesh which delivers excellent protection from insects and preserves outdoor views - even when the screen is pulled in place. The screens also include a mesh retention system to prevent the screen from blowing out in light breezy conditions.
