Technical Specification - Standard Fibreglass Insect Mesh

Standard Fibreglass Insect Mesh       

The most widely used type of INSECT MESH is made of fibreglass. It is robust, waterproof, and easy to work with due to it being pliable and simple to cut.

The standard INSECT MESH (mesh count per square inch = 18x16) is perfectly acceptable for most applications, however, if additional protection from midges is required (i.e., Scotland) then GENUINE MIDGE MESH (mesh count per square inch = 30x20) should be considered.

INSECT MESH is available in either grey or charcoal, with charcoal becoming increasingly popular as it is easier to see through from the inside and less visible from the outside.
