Frequently Asked Questions About Outdoor Blinds

We do offer clear PVC blinds as an option with our Executive motorised blinds, however, we generally recommend using a weather mesh with small holes. This type of mesh allows for good visibility while providing shelter, and it doesn’t risk mould forming on the plastic or the PVC becoming cloudy over time.

Outdoor patio blinds typically require a square area for installation, but we can accommodate different shapes and sizes by recessing the new outdoor blinds into ceilings and walls, or by using a cable-guided track. Each situation is different, so it’s best to contact us and send some photos of your space. We can then put together a free quote or share our thoughts.

The fabric we use in our patio blinds provides good protection from the sun. Different fabrics available have different levels of UV protection, so we can work with you to choose the best option for your needs.

Phantom Outdoor blinds are a premium product, crafted with superior materials and design, which does come at a higher cost. Retractable outdoor blinds start at $1500-2000 for a smaller opening and $10,000+ for larger recessed models.

However, this investment is worth it for its longevity and durability, resulting in a usable and visually appealing outdoor living area for decades to come.

If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, we also offer Cocha outdoor blinds. These may be a more cost-effective choice, particularly if you don’t need a motor and plan to retract them manually.

When visiting for a measure and quote, we bring sample mesh for you to see and touch. Additionally, Visiontex (a key mesh supplier) has created an app that enables users to envision how an Executive screen would look in their space. This app is accessible on both Apple and iOS devices. With the app, you can upload or take a picture of the area you are considering, pick your preferred mesh type (Plus or Ultra) and view (inside or outside), place multiple screens and select the desired colour.

Download the app – Apple OR iOS.

  • The Executive and Cocha screens are both leading products in their field but have different features in design, operation, mesh, and tracks.
  • The Executive offers more custom design options such as different track styles, cassette designs, and accessories. The Cocha is designed to block weather and has darker mesh, wider tracks, and the ability to have freestanding tracks.
  • The Executive screen is operated by an electric motor, which can be integrated with home automation, and has a sensor to automatically retract in high winds. The Cocha screen can be manually operated with a crank handle or have a motor added with a remote function. Both can control multiple screens on one remote or app.
  • The Cocha screen has one type of mesh that is designed to block weather and provide privacy. It comes in different colours but is 95% closed. The Executive screen offers different mesh options of 60%, 90%, and 95% openness that do not obstruct the view, in a range of colours.
  • The Cocha screen has a single, large track option that can be mounted on the surface or inside, while the Executive screen has multiple track options such as standard, recessed “U” channel, or cable-guided tracks.
  • Both screens have similar cassette designs, but the Executive has different sizes, depending on the size of the screen.

Yes, it is possible to use pet mesh instead of insect mesh on the Executive screen, for added durability against pet claws. Additionally, blackout mesh is available but we suggest incorporating some mesh for ventilation to prevent mould growth.

Outdoor motorised blinds are set up with a wiring system, including a “Molex clip,” that allows for them to be connected to a power source, either through a three-point plug or wired directly into a terminal box. Phantom Screens does not provide this service, and it should be done by an electrician prior to installation.

Once installed, it is recommended to perform a factory reset on each screen and add them individually to the remote control. If there are any issues with set-up or operation, customer service can assist with resolving them.

More information on the motors used in motorized screens can be found on the company’s resources page.

An independent solar and battery option is available as an alternative on the Executive screen if required. 

Ziptrak® Outdoor blind can withstand wind speeds of over 82.4km/hr (using aluminium rivets*) and 139km/hr (using stainless steel rivets*).
