  • Q - Will the flyscreens block the light?

    Ans - No. You will not notice any blocking of light whatsoever with standard mesh. Pet mesh will block the light a little due to its heavier weave and darker colour, plus provide a little shade as a bonus.

    Ans - The fibreglass mesh we use in our flyscreens is the standard in millions of homes throughout the world, many of which have pets. We also offer high strength polyester MESH.

  • Q - Can the standard mesh flyscreens be seen from the outside?

    Ans - They are virtually invisible, even close up. Even from the inside they are very hard to see

  • Q - Will insects get through tiny gaps?

    Ans - Most insects such as flies, wasps, bees, ladybirds, moths, mosquitoes, daddy-long-legs are far too big. Typically, they encounter the fly screen and depart quickly.

  • Q - Do flyscreens require cleaning?

    Ans - In normal use flyscreens do not accumulate dirt or insects. An occasional flick with a duster, and a very gentle wipe (no pressure!) of the mesh with a damp cloth once in a while is all that’s needed. The frames can be wiped with a soft damp cloth plus mild cleaner.

  • Q - Where will I fit my screen? Inside or Out??

    Ans - Screens can be fitted to the inside or the outside of a window or door frame. The key determining factor is whether the window/door opens inwards or outwards. As a general rule, if a window/door opens outwards, the screen will be fitted on the inside and vice-versa if the window/door opens inwards. This ensures the screen in not obstructed by the window/door as it is opened. The main exception is when fitting a screen to a sliding window/door. Sliding window screens are generally fitted inside, sliding door screens can be fitted inside or out.e

  • Q - Where will I fit my screen? To the frame or inside the reveal? (doors & windows)

    Ans - To the frame this involves fitting the screen directly onto the face of the window frame (face fit) a screen can be fitted directly to the face of a window frame, as long as there are no obstructions to prevent it from sitting flush against the frame itself. This is essential to create an all-round seal between the two surfaces. If there were obstructions on the surface of the window frame, e.g. vents, then a sub frame can be added to move the screen back beyond the protrusion. The screen would then be fitted to the sub frame instead of the window frame
