Safety Screens - A Guide to Mesh Types

The summer months can be tricky keeping cool in a nation not used to the heat! It’s common for people to want to keep their windows open during the day for a cooler bedroom at night. Fly screens across windows can keep insects out, while letting cooler air in.

Whilst white or brown are offered as standard colours, we can also powder coat frames to any requested colour, helping the screens blend in with the existing window and look part of the furniture.
