Insect Mesh

insect-mesh-screns

What are the benefits of insect mesh?

Insect mesh and fly screens are ideal for keeping mosquitos and other small insects out of homes and buildings. Not only do they help to alleviate the annoyance of insects, but they are also beneficial for hygiene reasons, as many of these insects carry germs and diseases. Some industries, such as those involving food preparation, also require working environments to be protected against insects for health and safety reasons, as part of legal requirements.

Which type of insect mesh should I use?

There are several things to consider when choosing insect mesh, most notably the size of the pests or insects that must be excluded. All insect meshes featured on this page will keep out house flies, but in order to keep out mosquitoes you should choose the mesh with the smallest hole size, which is our stainless steel mesh with 0.88mm aperture. We also supply a wide range of mesh made from fibreglass, polyester, aluminium and PVC coated steel.

Another consideration when choosing mesh is where it will be required. Although standard insect mesh and fly screens can be used in a variety of locations, soffit mesh will be required for use under guttering, or in the gap left in the eaves above ceiling insulation. This will prevent birds, rodents and insects, from entering buildings and causing problems.

We also supply insect mesh systems, which are specifically designed for windows and doors, and perfect for both domestic and business use.

How easy is it to install insect mesh?

Insect mesh is very easy to install. All our varieties can be cut with strong scissors, and then simply stapled or glued into place.

How long will insect mesh last?

The life expectancy of insect mesh will depend on the material used, and how often it is subject to wear and tear. The most hard-wearing mesh we sell is that made of metal, and this is available in either stainless steel or aluminium.

Our fibreglass and PVC coated steel mesh are cheaper alternatives, but consequently they are more delicate and should only be used indoors. However, our pet mesh is much stronger and is made from polyester with a nylon core.

What is the difference between expanded and woven insect mesh?

Quite simply, the expanded mesh is stronger and keeps its shape when it bends, whereas the woven mesh is much easier to cut and bend out of shape.

Where can I buy insect mesh?

You can buy your insect mesh from us online. Please see below to choose from our wide range of material and size options, or visit our soffit mesh, and insect mesh systems pages for some more alternatives. If you would like any help with your purchase please don’t hesitate to phone us on 01902 810 310 or contact us via email or on online chat.
