Phantom Screens Adds MeshLock Feature to Retractable Screen Doors

MeshLock is an optional feature, adding stability and durability to retractable door screens exposed to wind, pets and pests.

Phantom Screens, North America’s leading provider of retractable screens, unveiled the MeshLock feature for its retractable door screens at the 2020 International Builders’ Show. MeshLock is the latest feature to be added to Phantom’s line of retractable screen doors which retains the mesh in the top and bottom tracks while extending the life of the screen.

MeshLock is a mesh retention system that keeps door screen mesh secure in the top and bottom tracks when the screen is extended or retracted. The new feature provides homeowners with screen protection by preventing the mesh from blowing off the track during breezy conditions. The feature also prevents insects and debris from entering the home and provides homeowners with piece of mind by stopping small pets and/or pests from crawling underneath the mesh, a concern with standard retractable screen doors.

“We are pleased to unveil Phantom’s latest addition to our retractable door screens, the MeshLock feature,” said C. Esther De Wolde, Chief Executive Officer of Phantom Screens. “The latest addition to the Phantom product line extends the life of screen doors, while helping to maintain ideal living spaces for homeowners through enabling air circulation without unwanted pests and debris.”

Phantom Screens MeshLock system stays out of sight and can blend seamlessly through customizable finishes.
With many door screen features, design and aesthetics remain a primary concern for homeowners. The MeshLock zipper system stays out of sight and can blend seamlessly through customizable finishes so to not distract from the beauty of the home. Customer research shows that more than 50% of homeowners would see blowout prevention during breezy conditions as the top benefit for the new feature.

MeshLock is now available for purchase in 36″ and 48″ pull lengths. For more information, please visit
