Which mesh & fixings - res. framed window screens

Which mesh do I need ?

We offer two types of mesh with this screen. Your choice will depend on which insects you wish to keep out.

BetterVue insect mesh - 18 x 18 holes per square inch

Examples of insects this mesh will keep out:

  • Bees & Wasps, Bluebottles, Cluster Flies, Crane Flies, Daddy-Long-Legs, House Flies, Hornets, Ladybirds, Mosquitoes, Moths, Butterflies and Spiders.

BetterVue insect mesh is designed and manufactured to ensure maximum visibility (through the screen) ensuring as much light passes into the room as possible.

We recommend this mesh for all areas of the UK except in parts of Scotland where Midges are present and other parts of the UK where Corn Flies and Thunder Bugs/Thrips are present.

Midge mesh - 30 x 20 holes per square inch

This mesh will keep out:

  • The same as BetterVue insect mesh + Midges, Corn Flies and Thunder Bugs/Thrips

Midge mesh has a tighter weave than BetterVue insect mesh to ensure Midges, Corn Flies and Thunder Bugs/Thrips cannot penetrate, however the visibility and airflow is reduced slightly.

We recommend this mesh in parts of Scotland where Midges are present and other parts of the UK where Corn Flies and Thunder Bugs/Thrips are present.

Please note - genuine Midge mesh is 30 x 20 - anything less e.g. 20 x 20 or 18 x 16 will not keep midges out.


Fixings

Lift on/off hinges with turn buttons

This fixing consists of a 2 part hinge, one part fixes to the edge of the screen and the other to your window frame. Both are screwed in position. The two hinge parts are connected with a pin which allows you to lift the screen off the hinge for cleaning or storage. The screen is held closed with turn buttons as shown in the second image below. The button is turned through 90 degrees to lock/release the screen.

Please note: If your window handle protrudes past the framework when the window is closed just allow the screen to rest against the handle when not in use.  Once your window is open you will be able to close the screen flat against the window frame.


Magnetic strips

No drilling or screwing required for this magnetic option. It consists of two, 13mm wide, self-adhesive magnetic strips, one adheres to your window frame, the other adheres to the back of the screen.  The strip that adheres to your window frame is colour matched to blend in as much as possible. White for white frames and dark grey for brown or anthracite frames.

Please note: Your window handle may protrude past the framework when your window is closed.  If this is the case you can remove the screen when the window is shut.

Turn Buttons

The screen is held closed with 'turn buttons' screwed into your framework to the side of the screen. The button turns through 90 degrees to lock/release the screen.

Please note: Your window handle may protrude past the framework when your window is closed.  If this is the case you can remove the screen when the window is shut
