Insect Protection that lasts

Flyguard Insect Screens set industry standards for effectiveness, good design and long life. There are three key considerations: The strength of the mesh, the durability of the mesh-to-frame bond and the durability of the screen frame, fittings and guiding channels.

The mesh is made from woven fibreglass coated with PVC, strengthened at each crossing point by infra-red spotwelding. It will not shrink, fray or distort throughout its long life. The mesh size of  approx 2.3mm, does not impede ventilation and makes it fully translucent remaining fine enough to exclude all flying insects.

In the case of doors and removable screens the mesh is held taut in the aluminium frame profiles with a rubber spline (or gasket).This enables the mesh to be very quickly and easily replaced if damaged. With Roll-Up and Roll-Aside screens the guiding channels are fitted with brush seals which retain the edges of the mesh and prevent insects from entering. The frames and guiding channels are of high quality aluminium alloy, chromatised and double stove enamelled to resist corrosion.

face-fix and recess-fix options. The recess-fix option is supplied with "Strike Profile" for fixing inside the recess to seal the gap between the screen door and the frame.

Make sure there is clearance between the main door fittings and the screen door when both are closed. You may need to fit a "sub-frame" on which to mount your screen door if the handle or other fittings protrude too far (see diagram below).
