This screen can be fitted in 2 ways. For each method of fixing we will show you:
How to measure
The cassette (51mm wide) is fitted into the top of the reveal and the floor using two tabs and screws - usually positioned on the same side as the door is hinged. The closing channel (22mm wide) is fitted to the opposite reveal wall using screws.
two guides (both 40mm high) are screwed into to the underside of the reveal and the floor. For low thresholds, a 22mm bottom guide is available. as an option.
We advise taking 3 measurements for both width (top, middle & bottom) and height (left, middle & right) to allow for any variations. In each case use the smallest measurements for your final width and height. We will make your screen to these sizes.
How to measure
The cassette is fitted to the side door frame (usually positioned on the side the door is hinged) using brackets fitted to the side of the cassette. The total width of the cassette + brackets is 66mm.
top and bottom guides (both 40mm high) slot into the ends the cassette and are fitted to the upper and lower door frames. For low thresholds, a 22mm bottom guide is available as an option.
The closing channel (22mm wide), is fitted directly to the door frame.on the opposite side of the door to the cassette.
We will make your screen with the maximum outer dimensions to be the measurements provided..

FITTING INTO A REVEAL/RECESS:
If the screen is to be fitted to seal off the whole of the reveal/recess, then the pricing quoted includes all the fixings required.
If the screen is to be fitted onto the door frame, then face fitting brackets are required. The additional cost is shown when this option is selected.
The screen is supplied with standard handles, which protrude past the back of the cassette by 10mm. In cases where the standard handle will contact the door frame, folding handles are available to fix on the rear on the screen. The additional cost is shown when this option is selected.
The size of the top and bottom guides are 40mm tall. An alternative 22mm bottom guide is available, however, we would suggest the 40mm guide is used in situations where the bottom guide is to be screwed into the door frame and there is enough depth of frame to accommodate it.
We offer two types of mesh with this screen. Your choice will depend on which insects you wish to keep out.
Standard insect mesh - 18 x 16 holes per square inch
Examples of insects this mesh will keep out:
Standard 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:
Midge mesh has a tighter weave than Standard 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.
Pull across to cover your open door - roll back across when you close the door. A brake ensures the screen retracts slowly and smoothly once the screen is released from the channel.
Consists of a vertical cassette, top and bottom channels and a magnetic closing channel. The cassette and channels are made with high quality powder coated aluminium and available in White, Brown and Anthracite Grey. Custom colours available on request. All fixings - end caps, handles, fixing clips and brackets - are colour co-ordinated to ensure the screen blends into the surrounding door frame.
Fitting options - face fitting (the screen is fitted directly onto the 'face' of the door frame) or revel fit (the screen is fitted to the side walls of a door reveal)
Your screen will be made so that when fitted, the outer edges of the screen will match the dimensions you enter. Please ensure you enter your dimensions in millimeters.
For larger screens please call us.
The insect mesh is rolled on an aluminium tube which is held in a cassette. The other end of the mesh is fitted to an aluminium bar (handle bar) which is used to pull the mesh out of the cassette - across the door. As the handle bar is pulled across, it slides in a top and bottom channel - this holds the mesh in place. The mesh is also held under tension by a spring, located in the head cassette. The handle bar is secured in place with a strong magnetic strip which locates with a corresponding magnetic strip on a vertical closing channel. When the screen needs to be released, the handle bar is pulled away from the closing channel and returns to the head cassette. A brake counter-acts the tension of the spring to ensure the screen returns slowly and smoothly to the head cassette.
