Screening is playing an increasingly central role in the management of light, air quality and thermal gain in the hospitality sector. In addition to traditional HVAC solutions, environmental management at the opening can vastly improve interior climate and patron comfort.
In addition to environmental comfort; restaurants, clubs and hotels are also adopting screens to create distinct and separate areas. Our customers are using retractable screens to establish flexible private zones, sectioned conference space and VIP areas.
For those restaurants and establishments enjoying riverside locations, screening solutions are becoming more and more popular in reducing solar glare and insect nuisance – permitting all the benefits of outdoor dining with none of the discomfort or nuisance.
Automated, retractable screens from Phantom Screens can cover openings up to 7m wide – helping establishments improve patio dining while retaining the impact of large openings. Our state-of-the-art Executive Power Screens are compatible with bi-fold doors and windows and completely retract when not in-use to disappear from view.
Screens can be fully recessed and finished in any RAL colour. A comprehensive range of technical fabrics is available to suit specific requirements – including standard and fine weave insect meshes, solar shading and privacy screens blocking upwards of 55% UV rays.
Screening solutions contribute to the reduction of internal temperature and in turn offer savings towards the investment and running costs of HVAC systems. Thermal comfort gains are also made by retaining heat in the evenings whilst deflecting energy during the day.
The use of natural forces to provide light, heat and cooling is an important and progressive design approach. The trend for outdoor dining and a changing climate are placing additional demands on developers and managers to think carefully about sustainable and passive design strategies to improve the character of their establishments.
