Insect screens can be fitted to stacker doors, with Phantom Screens. Stacker doors, have two or more panels that slide in the same direction, stacking behind a fixed panel. Sometimes, they can have windows in the fixed panel of the door.
In some cases, a stacker door can be part of a post-less corner. Where two sliding doors meet in the middle, without a post. Stacker doors can also be recessed. Or have panes combined to stack away from each other.
When we fit a fly screen, to a stacker door. The screen is mounted to the opposite side, of where the doors stack. For example, if the doors stack to the outside, we mount the screen on the inside of the door. This allows us to clear the door handle. To allow the screen to slide out and meet with the first panels. The alternative, is to screen the whole door. So the fly screen is across the entire space, even if the door is only partially opened.
If your home has carpet up to the stacker door. A Phantom expert will discuss the option of retrofitting the screen to the outside. In basic terms, we would be adding fixing the tracks and frame of the screen to the outside of the original door. This has recently been done with a slider used as a front door. For this option, we would ask you to consider the aesthetics of your homes build. Do you think in a scenario like this, that a pleated fold away screen would be better? Are all important questions to consider.
The most commonly used screen for larger openings is the Brio-pleated screen. However, our legacy screen can also be fitted to this style of door, depending on the width and how well the handle will clear the original door handle.
