    Frequently Asked Questions about Fly Screen Mesh


    Which fly screen mesh is best?

    Aluminium frames and fibreglass mesh are ideal for long-lasting, high-quality fly screens. This mesh is resistant to corrosion, stains, and rust, and it can be stretched without breaking. The frames of our aluminium fly screens are the best available.

    What size mesh is a fly screen?

    The typical 18x16 gauge is effective against most flying insects. 20x20 and 20x30 gauge, are tighter weaves, often known as “midge mesh”, and are ideal for keeping midges at bay.

    Can you replace the fly screen with security mesh?

    A fly screen is the best defence against insects and other pests that should be kept outside where they belong. Security mesh is typically a much wider gauge mesh that may not be suitable for keeping out flying pests. Aluminium and Stainless steel fly screen mesh is available, but this does not necessarily provide security

    How often should fly screens be replaced?

    Fly screen mesh can have a lifespan of up to fifteen years. Although for those with lower-quality mesh, being exposed to UV rays and external weather conditions could reduce that significantly. Screens with good quality mesh can last many years with the obvious caveat of them being treated carefully since the biggest risk to their life span is damage to the mesh itself. Retractable roller mesh screens tend to have extended life spans since the mesh rolls away into a protective cassette when not in use.


    What is an insect mesh?

    Insect mesh not only allows for natural ventilation but also serves as an efficient barrier against winged pests. Woven Fiberglass with a PVC coating is typically used for bug netting. Weaved Polyester, Aluminium, Stainless Steel, and Rodent Mesh are some of the other mesh options.


    Does insect mesh work?

    Insect-proof meshes are effective physical barriers against flying pests and creepy crawlies. You should ensure you have the right type of mesh to keep out the type of insect you are concerned about. For example, there are speciality finer gauge meshes designed to keep out smaller flying pests such as midges. 

    Is aluminium or fibreglass fly screen better?

    It depends on the application. Aluminium is obviously more durable against accidental damage. Whilst aluminium is stronger than fibreglass, but it can still be dented and bent over time. Aluminium mesh is only really suitable for fixed applications and is significantly more expensive than fibreglass mesh. Fibreglass mesh is more suitable for non-fixed applications that require flexible mesh. These include roller fly screens and mesh panel screens, as well as being suitable for framed window and door screens. Its low cost makes it cheaply replaceable in case of damage.

    Fibreglass is also ideal for low-cost temporary insect screening. Where flexible but harder-wearing mesh is required, then high-resistance fibreglass mesh, also known as a tuff screen or pet mesh is also available. This increased durability comes at an increased cost though.


    What is the benefit of using a metal mesh screen?

    Metal mesh screens, using aluminium or stainless steel, offer several benefits that make them one of the ideal choices for fly screens. They are effective at filtering out insects and other unwanted debris, which helps to keep homes and businesses clean and free from pests. Additionally, metal mesh screens provide ventilation while keeping out bugs, making them a popular option for windows and doors. Finally, metal mesh screens are of course very hardwearing and more resistant to damage such as punctures and tears

    How do you clean metal mesh fly screens?

    Cleaning metal mesh fly screens involves removing the screen from its frame and gently brushing off loose debris.
    Next, soak the screen in warm water with a mild detergent for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap residue. 
    Finally, allow the screen to air dry completely before reattaching it to its frame. It's important to avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the metal mesh. Regular cleaning of metal mesh fly screens is recommended to prevent the buildup of dirt and debris, which can attract insects and other pests.


    Is metal mesh good for the fly screens?

    Yes, metal mesh is an excellent material for fly screens. It is durable and can withstand exposure to the elements, making it suitable for use in both indoor and outdoor settings. Metal mesh screens also provide an effective barrier against insects and other pests, while still allowing for ventilation and natural light. Additionally, metal mesh can be customized to fit a range of window and door sizes, making it a versatile option for fly screens.


    How long does metal mesh last?

    The lifespan of metal mesh varies depending on factors like the type of metal, thickness, and the environment. With proper installation and maintenance, metal mesh screens can last for many years, even decades. Stainless steel mesh is particularly durable and resistant to corrosion, which can extend its lifespan. However, harsh weather and corrosive substances can shorten its life. Regular cleaning and maintenance can help to prolong its life.
