Window screens:

Windows come in all shapes and sizes so we offer different types of fly screens and a range of sizes, fixing options and frame colour.

The style of window will often determine the type of screen you use.

So, for example, if you wish to screen a fanlight window you would be able to use a framed screen or a roller screen but not a sliding screen.

To help you find the right product we have matched styles of windows with types of screens - you can use the filter (top right) on the category page to help you work out which type(s) of screen best suit your windows. 

 Some screening terms that may help:

  • framed screen - a screen made the shape of a rectangular or square frame (a bit like a picture frame) fitted with mesh. This sort of screen is generally placed  onto the window frame to cover the open space when the window is open.
  • roller screen - operates in a similar way to a roller blind. A cassette with mesh is fitted to the top of a window frame. Side channels run vertically from the  cassette to the window cill to create a seal and guide the mesh as it is pulled downwards from the cassette.
  • twin slider - Similar to the secondary glazing concept. An outer frame is fitted into the window reveal. Two panels with mesh fit into the frame,  each covering half the width of the window with an overlap in the middle. Each screen slides aside to allow access to the window.
  • pleated screenContains a pleated/folded mesh fitted in a surrounding frame. The mesh is pulled downwards to cover the window and pushed back up when not in use.

With each type of screen you will have a number of options to choose from

  • Size
  • Fixing type
  • Type of mesh
  • DIY kit vs. made to measure

All product pages have a detailed (printable) help page to guide you through these options.

Door screens:

As with windows, doors also come in all shapes and sizes so we offer different types of fly screens and a range of sizes, fixing options and frame colour.

The style of door will often determine the type of screen you use.

So, for example, if you wish to screen a sliding patio door you would be able to use a sliding screen or a roller screen but not a hinged screen.

To help you find the right product we have matched styles of doors with types of screens - you can use the filter (top right) on the category page to help you work out which type(s) of screen best suit your door.

 Some screening terms that may help:

  • hinged screen single  - a screen made in the shape of a rectangular frame fitted with mesh. This screen is generally fitted onto the door frame with hinges and covers the open space when the door is open.
  • hinged screen double - a set of two hinged door screens, each made in the shape of a rectangular frame fitted with mesh. Both screen doors are fitted onto the door frame with hinges and close together with a seal in the middle.
  • roller screen single - A cassette with mesh is fitted upright to the side of a door frame. Top and bottom channels run horizontally from the cassette to a vertical closing channel, the horizontal channels create a seal and guide the mesh as it is pulled across the door.
  • roller screen double - Two cassettes with mesh, one fitted upright to the left side of the door, the other to the right side of the door. The mesh/bar from each cassette is pulled towards the middle of the door and joined with a vertical magnetic strip. Top and bottom channels run horizontally between the cassettes to create a seal and guide as the mesh as it is pulled across.
  • chain screen/curtainlengths of chain are hung onto a header bar to form a chain curtain.
  • single slider - one screen rolls on a top and bottom track, sliding across to cover the open space when a door is open.
  • twin slider - Similar to the secondary glazing concept. An outer frame is fitted into the door reveal.Two panels with mesh fit into the frame,each covering half the width of the door with an overlap in the middle. Each screen slides aside to allow access the door.
  • pleated screen - Contains a pleated/folded mesh fitted in a surrounding frame. The vertical mesh is pulled across (R to L or L to R) to cover the door and returned to the side when not in use. Can be single or double.
  • butted slider - Two screens roll on a top and bottom track, sliding together (meeting in the middle) to cover the open space when a door is open. Both screens slide apart when the doors are closed.

With each screen you will have a number of options.

  • Size
  • Fixing type
  • Type of mesh (except chain screen/curtain)
  • DIY kit vs. made to measure

All product pages have a detailed (printable) help page to guide you through these options.
