During the summer months it is essential to have good flyscreens on your home. They allow ventilation and keep your house from becoming stuffy, while keeping out insects and bugs. Flyscreens can be installed on windows as well as doors. They can be a regular insect proof flyscreen or a security mesh that helps prevent break-ins to your home. A security flyscreen uses high tensile mesh made from stainless steel and is ideal when you want a warm summer breeze blowing through your house without compromising the integrity of your home.
A general type of flyscreen window or door will have a metal frame that is constructed from aluminum. Usually the frame is powder coated and is available in a range of colors. The mesh that forms the screen can be made from steel, aluminum or even fiberglass. If you want a more aesthetically pleasing flyscreen you can also find screens that have a timber frame. These can be stained and polished or painted in your desired color, making an attractive alternative to the metal framed flyscreens.
Flyscreens are available in a wide range of designs that include both hinged and sliding doors. They are also available with roll away systems that allow you to pull down the screen when you need it or roll it back so that it remains out of sight when it's not required. This is a great option if you have feature doors or something similar to admire. Roll away screens are a great choice if you have casement windows or double hung windows, French doors or bi fold doors and windows. If you already have Fliegengitter Fenster in place, there is no problem, you can still have flyscreens fitted to them.
Flyscreens can be made to measure and this usually only takes a few hours to complete. Most professionals can make and fit your flyscreens on site as well as re meshing security doors and windows where the screen has become worn or tattered overtime. If you are after a more complicated screen door or window, the parts will usually be made and assembled off-site before being installed in your house. Ask your installer for a free quote, most professionals will be willing to give you one.
Flyscreens, just like other parts of your house, need to be cleaned occasionally. If the flyscreen is too dirty it will hamper the ability for air to pass through it as well as being unattractive to look at. Many people consider cleaning a flyscreen to be time-consuming and messy, but if you know the right way to do it, then it doesn't have to be a chore. Most flyscreen windows and doors can be removed and taken outside for cleaning. It's best to prop them up against a wall or if you don't have one handy you can lay them down flat on a clean dry surface such as a pavement or driveway. Rinse the screen gently with a hose or watering can and scrub it with warm soapy water and a soft brush. Scrub both sides and rinse thoroughly when you're finished. For fixed screens, such as security doors, you can use a sponge and a bucket to wipe them down. Make sure to place towels down before you begin.
