VIDEO: Roller Fly Screens for Windows - How to Operate

Our roller fly screens for windows are an excellent way of letting fresh air circulate into your home, but keeping out flying pests and creepy crawlies. They are an excellent purchase for this spring and summer, and if used correctly will last for many summers to come! We have produced the video at the bottom of this page as a "how to" guide for operation. As you can see, they are extremely straight forward to use! Each screen consists of a spring loaded cassette, which houses the mesh and is attached to a sliding hem bar with a handle. Also included are two side channels, one for either side of the screen. This is a "hide-away" screen and only needs to be deployed when your window is open. When your window is not open, the mesh simply rolls back into the spring loaded cassette at the top of your window, keeping the mesh safe and clean. Side channels on each side of the screen create an insect proof seal either side. The sliding bar of the screen will typically pull down to your window sill, which creates the fourth side of the frame. If you don't have a window sill (for example, if you are installing around an opening pane at the top of your window), then you can opt to purchase an L-shaped closing profile, which can be fixed at the bottom of the screen underneath the side channels, to complete the fourth side of the frame.

Pre-order 2021 - Save 10% EXTRA Off Blinds & Flyscreens - Code DEL-2021

Christmas is approaching quickly and the team at Newblinds.co.uk are working away like busy socially-distanced elves to manufacture blinds and fly screen orders for customers who have placed orders before our pre-Christmas delivery cut-offs. As we've become accustomed to, in the year of COVID, things just take that little bit longer, especially with high quality customised blinds. So for a lot of our products, we've had to close our books to pre-Christmas delivery orders a little earlier than we would normally like to. However, for those of you who are happy to wait until the New Year to receive your blinds and fly screens, we are also running a kind of "Early January Sale" which we think will be of interest! So, here's the deal... PRE-ORDER NOW FOR DELIVERY IN THE NEW YEAR - SAVE AN EXTRA 10%! And here's the detail... If you are happy to receive your blinds in the New Year, then you can make an additional 10% saving, by entering discount code DEL-2021 at checkout.

COVID-19 Update - 23rd May 2020

Dear Customers and Friends, I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. I'd just like to update you all on how things have been going at Newblinds.co.uk, and what our customers can expect now that the lock-down is starting to be eased. Whilst we were told to "Stay Home"... During the global COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lock down, we have continued to operate and fullfill orders as best we can. Although we closed our factory and offices, we've been running with a skelton staffing working from home, answering calls and emails from spare rooms and kitchen tables; sampling, fabricating and dispatching from home workshops and garages.  We've continued to manufacture and dispatch fly screens, although lead times have been longer than promised and expected due to reduced staffing and delays with materials incoming from suppliers in the EU. If you have experienced a delay with your product, we can only apologise. As advertised, the majority of our made-to-measure blind production had ceased due to factory and supplier closures. Since we've been told to "Stay Alert"... Thankfully, production has resumed on the majority of our products. We do have a significant backlog of orders, but we are working hard to clear these as soon as possible and get back on track and to reasonable lead times. We expect manually operated blinds and fly screens to be the first products to have the backlog cleared, followed by automated blinds.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Customers, We are experiencing some delays with manufacture and dispatch of window blinds due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Window Blinds Some of our regular material suppliers and suppliers of finished blinds closed their warehouses and workshops on the announcement of the initial 3 week period of lock down restrictions. Other suppliers are operating using much reduced staffing.  Update - On the 16th April, the UK goverment extended lock down restrictions by a further 3 weeks. It is likely that this will cause continued delays on these products.  If you require blinds urgently, then please contact customer.services@newblinds.co.uk to check the status of the product that you wish to order.  Fly screens The majority of our fly screen products are still being fullfilled according to the lead times displayed on the product pages. Order confirmation emails When you place an order, you will receive an order confirmation email which may detail a delivery date - please disregard this date. Your order will be manufactured at the earliest possible opportunity. We genuinely appreciate your patience and understanding during these extraordinary circumstances. We hope you are staying safe and healthy during these challenging times! Best wishes, Newblinds.co.uk Team
