RETRACTABLE INSECT SCREENS
Retractable insect screens for windows, bespoke made to your dimensions, easy to install and operate, almost invisible against window frames
EXPANDING END CAPS
There is an option of 2 end caps. The face fit option has the slim end cap with no visible lugs and the reveal fit option will have the screw lugs and our unique expansion spring. This enables you to reveal install and allow up to 15mm tolerance in the dimension, no worries about getting the exact measurement as it will expand into the opening!
Nylon components and aluminium frames to ensure trouble free operation and a long durable life.
There is a choice of our standard mosquito mesh which has 18/16 strands which is sufficient to help keep out most types of flies, mosquitoes, wasps, bees, spiders etc and it is available in grey decor or black mesh. The darker the mesh then the easier it is to see through as less light is reflected off the mesh.
The midge mesh has a finer weave of 19/19 strands and it will help to keep out most small midges, as well as the larger flies. This mesh has been specifically designed for use in our roller fly screen system with the aim of maximising air flow but helping to keep out the smaller midge type flies.
Our toughened mesh now comes as standard on our retractable insect screen ranges which will help to protect against the occasional pet claw swipes.
The screens are not designed to keep pets indoors and as pets are individuals and we cannot guarantee that a pet could not get through the mesh and so we would recommend using additional measures to keep pets indoors and to let them get accustomed to the mesh screen.
The pollen mesh is a knitted polyester weave of 80 microns with a 0.8 aperture and is available in the black colour, it will keep out flies as well as pollen and other allergens and is available in grey.
All our retractable insect screens now come with Sunox mesh as standard which is naturally antibacterial. Sunox mesh filters the air, preventing the formation of germs and bacteria and reducing the presence of polluting particles in the air.
You can choose to have handles, pull cords, choice of pull weights or no base bar components at all and just use the decorative channel for operation
Optional internal brake that slows down the spring retraction system, this is especially useful where children may be using the screens and it helps to prolong the life of the mesh
The retractable insect screen can be assembled with handles to draw the mesh out of the cassette, or if you want a more streamlined look the groove where the handles slide can be used to operate the screen
Again there is a choice to have a pull cord or this can be left out of the unit, the image shows the pull cord with the standard end pull
OPTIONAL PULL WEIGHT
Choose from the standard nylon pull weight or the nickel pull for a more contemporary look
STANDARD SIDE GUIDE
Our standard side guide comes with an integral brush pile to create the seal with the fly mesh
If you live in a windy area then consider having our interlocking wind pile installed, the filaments lock into the mesh to hold it in position
This is used where there is no window sill to seal to, the base bar is screwed to the window frame and the roller fly screen sits within it
Our standard base catch comes in white to match the cassette and sits on the external of the side guide. The catch is adjusted by turning the brass screw, just in case your window sills aren’t flat, this catch is recommended for use with the midge mesh
There is the alternative internal catch which fits neatly into the side guide but isn’t adjustable

How do our retractable insect screens for windows work?
The insect mesh is inside the aluminium cassette out of view and is kept taut by spring tension inside the cassette. The handle bar holds the base of the mesh and allows you to pull the mesh out of the cassette and down over the open window.
From the head of the cassette down to the window sill are two side guides, which allow the mesh to travel along and also creates a seal to help prevent any flies from entering your room.
Once the mesh has been drawn into position, the handle bar is held in place by clips which are fixed into the side guides, these hold the mesh in place until you are ready to close the screen.
When you release the handle bar from the clips the retraction spring takes the mesh back into the cassette.
