Did you know?

ALUMINIUM MESH SCREEN

Aluminium insect screened windows are non-flammable and fire resistant; an option for homes that require BAL approval during construction.

The aluminium insect screen complies with AS3959BAL-12.5BAL-19 and BAL-29.

The aluminium mesh still allows good visibility and keeps insects out!

FIBREGLASS MESH SCREEN

Fibreglass Mesh is the “standard”/”base” mesh for your windows. ​ Fibreglass mesh is black in colour, lightweight and the most inexpensive mesh option. ​ This type of mesh is more delicate than available alternatives.

MIDGEE MESH SCREEN

The Midgee Mesh screen has been created to keep out the miniscule insects, think fruit flies and sand flies.

Rural, farming and coastal properties are more prone to tiny insects, smaller than a fly/mosquito.

The Midgee mesh is constructed from durable 0.25mm diameter PVC coated fibreglass strands which are woven closer together than regular fly mesh at 18 x 30 strands per inch.

PET MESH DOOR SCREEN

The Pet Mesh screen door is aka Paw Proof Mesh. The mesh is very durable as it has a high resistance to scratches by dogs/cats.

The mesh is 20 times stronger than standard fibreglass mesh, made with fibreglass weave with PVC coating. and is ideal for high traffic areas with pets and children.

Due to the mesh consistency, it will slightly darken a room.

PET MESH PLUS SCREEN

The Pet Mesh Plus insect screen is similar to Pet Mesh but thicker. ​

It will darken a room, it’s ideal for areas with children and pets and has a little bit of flexibility in it. ​

The Pet Mesh Plus will not rust, rot or corrode; it is suitable for bushfire prone areas and compies with AS3959.

STAINLESS STEEL MESH SCREEN

The Stainless Steel insect screen is really good for visibility, airflow, durability and aesthetics.

The mesh consists of marine grade 316 stainless steel, with a PVC coating.

Stainless Steel mesh is the most durable, is non-flammable and fire resistant, suitable for bushfire prone areas requiring BAL compliance.
