Insect screens are an effective way of keeping unwanted flying insects such as mosquitoes, midges, flies, moths, wasps and bees out of your house. Window and door fly screens let the fresh air in and keep the bugs out, even at night when the lights are on. Insect screens don't block out natural sunlight or reduce visibility.
You can put insect screens in your home, office, caravan, tent, boat, greenhouse, car, gazebo, children's playhouse and anything else that needs protection from nuisance insects.
Window and Door Fly Screens
A wide variety of insect screens are available – they are made for all types of doors and windows and you are bound to find something to suit your requirements. Choose an insect screen made to your precise measurements and supplied ready for you to fit, or opt for a DIY fly screen kit if you’re happy to put it together yourself. Options include:
- Magnetic fly screens – a magnetic fly screen has magnets attached to each of its four corners, allowing it to be secured easily to the window frame. Easy to lift off when not in use during the winter months
- Retractable fly screens – retractable, or roller fly screens can be pulled across or vertically. The screen retracts into its storage cassette when not in use. Suitable for windows, standard doors, patio doors and French doors
- Chain fly screens – usually made from aluminium, chain fly screens consist of a row of chain links that hangs down. Ideal for screening doorways in kitchens, caravans and conservatories, chain fly screens are easy for people and pets to walk through
- Beaded fly screens – similar to chain fly screens, beaded fly screens give doors and windows protection against flying insects and also make decorative room dividers
- Sliding fly screens – a sliding fly screen glides across a track and can be fitted to a window or door. Two or more sliding panels can be installed in order to screen large windows and double doors
- Hinged fly screens – hinged fly screens for doors are installed by hinges and fixed closed with turn buttons. Easy to open and walk through. Also available for windows
- Fly screen curtains – a fly screen curtain consists of mesh that hangs down across the doorway. The fly screen mesh is weighted at the bottom and is usually a cheaper option than a fitted door fly screen
- Plastic fly screens – strips of plastic are suspended from a top rail and hang down across the doorway. Easy to walk through, a plastic fly screen is an inexpensive way of stopping flying insects getting inside
- Velcro fly screens – insect mesh is attached to the window frame with Velcro hook tape. Velcro fly screens are ideal for awkward shaped windows in tents, caravans and boats
- PVC fly screens – PVC fly screens are heavy-duty screens that enable food businesses to comply with health and safety regulations
