Window Fly Screens are incredibly effective at keeping insects out of your home and they are more user friendly (as well as insect and environmentally friendly) than fly paper and fly sprays. Screening can be tricky to start with -  windows come in all shapes and sizes and there are many types of fly screen - but the investment will be worth it once your screens are doing their job.

The products and information here will help you understand the options and if you need further information or advice, we have a friendly and extremely knowledgeable customer services team who are ready to help you. Here are a few of the most FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS to get the ball rolling.

What types of window fly screen are there?

We have a variety of screen types, some are designed for specific window styles and others are suitable for more than one window style. Here is an overview of each type of screen  

Framed window fly screen - as the name suggests, this screen is made in the shape of a rectangular or square aluminium frame (a bit like a picture frame) and fitted with a mesh. This sort of screen is generally placed onto the window frame to cover the open space when the window is open. Fixing options include magnetic, hinge or turn button.

Roller window fly screen - this screen operates in a similar way to a roller blind, but with side channels. A cassette with mesh is fitted to the top of a window frame and the side channels run vertically from the cassette to the window sill to guide the mesh as it is pulled downwards from the cassette. The screen is rolled down when the window is open and back to the cassette when the window is closed. The screen can be chain or non-chain operated.

Twin sliding window fly screen - this screen is similar to the secondary glazing concept. An outer frame/track is fitted into the window reveal and two framed insect mesh screens fit into the frame. Each screen covers half the width of the window with an overlap in the middle to create a seal. Both screens slide aside to allow access to the window.

Pleated window fly screen - as the name suggests, the pleated screen uses a mesh with a series of pleats rather than a flat mesh. The system consists of a top face fitted or reveal fitted channel which holds the mesh and side channels run vertically from the top channel to the window sill to guide the mesh as it is pulled downwards. The screen is pulled down when the window is open and back to the top when the window is closed.

    How do I measure?

    The way you measure will depend on the product you choose. Each product has a measuring guide which is reached by selecting the "How to Measure" tab on the top right hand side of the product page. Many products also have "how to" videos to take you through measuring and other product options.

    Do Fly Screens block the light?

    Fly Screens will reduce the light to a certain degree and this depends on the mesh chosen. Modern high visibility insect meshes such as BetterVue® have a minimal effect on light and airflow whereas a finer mesh such as Midge Mesh will affect light and airflow more. If you wish to check for yourself we can send a FOC sample.

    Can your screens be fitted to the outside of a building?

    Yes - all screens have powder coated aluminium frames and weatherproof mesh and fixings so they can be fitted internally or externally.

    What is the difference between Standard insect mesh and Midge mesh?

    Standard insect mesh - 18 x 16 holes per square inch. This 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.

    Examples of insects this mesh will keep out are: Bees & Wasps, Bluebottles, Cluster Flies, Crane Flies. Daddy-Long-Legs, House Flies, Hornets, Ladybirds, Mosquitoes, Moths, Butterflies, Spiders

    Midge mesh - 30 x 20 holes per square inch. Midge mesh has a tighter weave than Standard Insect Mesh to ensure Midges, cannot penetrate, however, the visibility and airflow is reduced slightly. This mesh will keep out the same as Standard Insect Mesh + smaller insects such as Midges and We recommend this mesh in parts of Scotland where Midges are present and other parts of the UK where potentially smaller insects can be found.
