FAQs

Why Choose A Phantom Retractable Screen Instead Of A Traditional Screen?

Traditional screens are always visible, whereas a retractable screen can completely disappear when it is not in use. Retractable Phantom garage door screens, or screens for your entryway, window, or patio, are stored in a custom case until you’re ready to use them. This adds convenience, versatility, and visual appeal to your home design.

Where did Phantom Screens begin?

The Phantom Screens product has been around for over 30 years, and it originated in Abbotsford, BC, Canada. Phantom Screens manufactured and distributed retractable screens from then on, becoming one of British Columbia’s fastest growing companies.


Phantom screens history


Syb Rypma, originally from the Netherlands, brought a groundbreaking idea to North America. Teaming up with the Rooke family in Abbotsford, BC, Canada, they rented a garage and hung a sign, giving birth to Phantom.

After operating for only three years, the company formed a partnership with Paul and Peter Swaffer to produce and distribute Phantom retractable screens in Australia.

With some years of experience gained, the company revamped and reintroduced its main retractable screen door, aiming for an even superior product.

Phantom’s first appearance on television was exciting because it introduced the concept of invisible screen doors to households throughout North America.

They were privileged to be listed as one of British Columbia’s fastest-growing companies.

They successfully completed construction on a 45,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and office building in their hometown of Abbotsford, B.C.

After eight years of manufacturing and installing manual door screens, Phantom broadened its product line to include motorized screen products by acquiring a Florida-based company named Executive Rollscreens.

One of the most significant honors and moments of pride for the company was when their CEO, C. Esther De Wolde, received the prestigious “Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year” award.

Their debut retractable window screen was introduced.

Customers were delighted when the company announced its capability to match any color they could imagine for custom coatings. They received approval from the American Institute of Architects to provide training on retractable screen solutions.

That year marked the signing of an agreement with partner Dan Hiblin of Phantom Screens (UK) Ltd. to produce and distribute their screens throughout the U.K.

That year marked the raising of $102,000 to renovate and expand a school in Senegal for the worthy charity. They have been proud supporters of World Vision’s work since 2006.

They aimed for their motorized screen casings to become even more discreet when not in use, thus they devised a smaller, more compact casing measuring just 4 inches wide.

The introduction of retractable window screens with wood casings enables them to accommodate customers’ wood-framed windows. They integrated their screens into custom wood window designs by JELD-WEN.

They introduced a mechanism to decrease the speed on their retractable door screens, resulting in a smoother opening experience.

Not only are their screens innovative, but Phantom also won the award for Most Innovative Website from Window & Door magazine this year.

They crafted a new handle option for their retractable door screens. Ergonomic, satisfying, and intuitive, the Latch & Release handle is preferred by 90% of their customers.

Naturally, they introduced their new Latch & Release handle to their distributor network, resulting in winning the Most Innovative Marketing Program (Supplier) award from Window & Door magazine.

Through a distribution agreement with Rona Canada, Phantom products became accessible in Rona stores throughout Canada.

They began collaborating with the local charity Cyrus Centre to aid vulnerable youth in their community.

Through a distribution agreement with Home Depot U.S.A., Phantom products became accessible at more than 178 stores in specific American markets.

Their CEO achieved a lifelong dream by renovating the Morgan-Ford House, a neglected 1906 Arts & Crafts bungalow in Mobile, Alabama, and transformed it into a Phantom Screens showcase home. They incorporated the Smart Stop Blockage sensor as a standard feature in their motorized retractable screens this year.

Phantom’s motorized retractable screens were selected for Ty Pennington’s fully automated “First to the Future Home” on NGHTV. This marked their initial major appearance on a TV show home, but certainly not their final one!

With the indoor-outdoor trend gaining momentum, they introduced their motorized screens equipped with clear vinyl, aiding homeowners in establishing temperature-controlled outdoor areas.

Through a distribution agreement with Lowe’s Canada, Phantom products became accessible in Lowe’s stores throughout Canada.

In response to market demand, they developed and introduced retractable screens tailored for extra-large doors.

Phantom’s motorized screens expanded in width, strength, and size this year. They surpassed the industry norm of 25 feet and introduced a motorized retractable screen product capable of extending up to 40 feet wide.

They enlarged their manufacturing facility by an additional 40,000 square feet to meet demand and maintain short lead times.

Phantom celebrated its 25th anniversary with friends and family at their recently expanded headquarters in Abbotsford, BC. They also collaborated with Habitat for Humanity and the Jimmy & Rosalyn Carter Work Project, raising $150,000 to support the construction of affordable housing across Canada.

They developed and introduced a self-tensioning cable guide system, enabling customers to install motorized retractable screens in structures where the conventional track system is impractical. The brand’s new cable guide system for motorized screens quickly earned the Architizer A+ Award.

They teamed up with the top connectivity supplier Somfy® and the adjustable pergola manufacturer StruXure to showcase a fresh perspective on outdoor living at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.

Winning the Best Outdoor Product at the Architectural RECORD Awards, Phantom collaborated with Somfy® and StruXure to construct the Climate Responsive Outdoor Complex, earning the top prize in its category.

At the Pro Builder Awards, Phantom secured two of the Top 100 readers’ choice awards in both Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler magazines.

The introduction of clear vinyl broadened the potential uses of their products, especially in commercial settings like restaurants and hotels.

In the 2021 HGTV Smart Home, their retractable screens were showcased in Naples, Florida.

A significant milestone was reached when they sold their 2,000,000th retractable screen this year.

In honor of Phantom’s 30th Anniversary, they are marking this significant achievement by giving back to the community. They hold the belief of extending care beyond themselves and aiding both their local community and the wider world. Phantom is excited to share that they will be contributing $75,000 to Habitat for Humanity. This donation will assist in constructing affordable housing for those in need.
