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.
Ans - They are virtually invisible, even close up. Even from the inside they are very hard to see
Ans - Yes. All window, roof vent, French Doors and Entry door flyscreens can be removed and re-installed in seconds. The sliding flyscreens for doors require removal of 2-3 screws first
Ans - Yes. Rolls of DIY replacement mesh are available. Use the tool that came in your fly screen kit. In normal use, the mesh should last many years.
Ans - Woven fibreglass coated with PVC and polyester coated with PVC.e
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.
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.
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
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
