Fly screens Sunshine Coast

Fly screens and insect screens are a must for every household. 

They ensure the insects stay out whilst still letting the fresh air in, without blocking your view. The standard fibreglass mesh is cheap and easily replaced if it gets damaged, making fly screens the most cost-effective way to keep insects out for people who do not need security. Standard fly screens are also very affordable and are a lot cheaper than security.

Benefits Of Fly Screens On The Sunshine Coast

Fly screens are one the most popular door and screen accessories amongst Australian households. But they do more than just block out annoying and unwanted insect guests, they allow natural light and fresh air into your home. Some of the main benefits of fly screens include:

  • Increase Natural Light. Compared to traditional doors, flyscreens allow for more light into your home, adding a sense of space as well as saving energy.
  • Increase Air Flow. Due to their mesh design, fly screens allow for more natural air to flow through your home, keeping the air inside fresh and increasing ventilation.
  • Additional Security. Most modern fly screen mesh is now made from far stronger materials than traditional screens, providing your home with an additional layer of protection.

Fibreglass flyscreens are popular as they do not corrode as much as some types of metal flyscreens. However, they can stretch and tear more easily. By contrast, aluminium flyscreens are especially durable and longer-lasting, yet can bend under certain strains.

The main differences between standard vs pet screen mesh and standard mesh are yarn diameter and the openness percentage. Pet screen yarn is typically thicker to protect against pet damage like tears from claws. However, because it is thicker, pet screens are less open, meaning you let less air through your screen. If this is a concern for you we maybe able to add a mid-rail so that you can divide the mesh to have petscreen in the bottom and fibreglass mesh in the top section.

Aluminium while it is stronger, it will hurt the pet’s paws as they jump or slide on the screen. With an openness of 68% with aluminium you will get more airflow but it can cause damage and minor cuts on your pet’s paws so we suggest using the specific petscreen to protect your pets and at the same time have less holes in your screen.
