Phantom Screens
So glad that some of you have our screens and are happy with them! To answer the question about the bottom track - it is very subtle and blends in with the threshold. We can match any color (including a wide selection of wood grain finishes) so it will look like part of the doorway. Go to or watch our product videos on our YouTube page at If you still have questions, call 1-888-PHANTOM - it is our North America wide toll free line that will connect you with our Authorized Distributor in your area.

Veneers used in making doors can mean a lot of different things. One key to look for a in a quality, solid wood entry door is typically engineered stiles and rails. These provide the backbone of the door and if built properly will prevent it from warpage. the engineered stile has a core of laminated wood with a veneer or "skin" of the wood species of the door. A veneer of 1/16" thickness may not hold up to the elements but a 'skin' of 3/8" to 1/2" laminated to the core is a high quality product. At a minimum, 2 pieces of solid wood are laminated together to created a more stable piece of wood.
