Phantom motorized screens solution for Minneapolis restaurant

The Il Gatto restaurant in Minneapolis was looking for a screening solution for their bi-fold windows.  They wanted to be able to open the wall of windows, providing fresh air and an outdoor feel to their already lively atmosphere. 
The advantage of going with Phantom retractable screens means the screens are only down in place when needed.  Most of the year, when it is too cool or too windy to enjoy outdoor eating, the screen mesh rolls up into the protective aluminum housing.  This limits exposure to the elements: dust and debris don't collect. 
And with the remote control, the ease of putting the screens up and down is a definite plus.  Each screen has it's own Somfy motor and can be operated with the push of a button. 
Using local suppliers, we were able to anodize the aluminum providing a match that blends in seamlessly with the existing construction.  The black SuperScreen mesh provides not only strength, but great visibility when looking out. 
We in Minnesota know better than most how great it is to enjoy the summer when we have it.  Bringing the outdoors in...with Phantom's retractable screen solutions!
