This weeks motorized outdoor shade installation took place at Reynolds Plantation at Lake Oconee, Georgia. The screens were produced by Universal Motion Screens of Dallas, TX. The customer’s primary goal was to block the bugs and gain more enjoyment from their deck with an awesome view of the water. Powered by Somfy motors, the client will have the ease of a multi-channel remote which will allow them to operate the screens individually or as a group. The screen mesh is produced by Phifer who manufactures Pet Mesh; a 10 year warranty screen material that won’t rip, tear, or mildew.
A single window was covered with a 95% solar mesh to help reduce the incredible amount of heat that was reflecting off the water. When the screen is down it reduces the temperature coming into the house by a whopping 16 degrees!
On the outside patio you will also notice Retractable Screen Doors installed on a set of custom French Doors produced by Mirage Screens. Mirage Screens offer the same resistant pet mesh which will keep the look and consistency in tact with the rest of the patio / deck area. Built with a patented speed reducer, these doors will retract automatically upon impact by either human or pet. However, the speed reducer creates a slower, safer retraction that won’t slam or pinch fingers.
