Installation of Flyscreen on Different Types of Window

Window Flyscreens For Timber Windows [Full Guide]

When summer breaks in then you will need to install a certain protection system for your house doors and windows to prevent entry of different insects and flies inside your home. All the flies that are available in the environment will not only be too annoying for your family, but also are carriers of different diseases. 

Premier Screens Ltd. offers fly screens of different types that you can fit in the doors and windows to prevent entry of these flies and insects so that you will be free from the nuisance created by these flies at home.

Let us see how you can install these fly screens on different kinds of windows:

Fitting a flyscreen in your windows

You can attach flyscreens to your window’s inside or outside for reducing the gap size through which any insect can easily get through as you open your window for ventilating your home.

While installing these flyscreens, you must measure every window individually as even a gap of 2 mm can make a lot of difference and that can allow a patch for flies or insects to enter your home. 

  • For sliding windows

These flyscreens can typically fit inside the channel of its opening ‘sash’ present on your building’s exterior so that it is possible for you to operate your window from inside just without touching it.

To make your screens properly go into the channel and also go out of the channel, you can use many different methods. The experienced installer who are regularly fitting such flyscreens in different windows can always find a suitable way to fix it on your window.

This is a bit of tricky job and usually, a handyman who is regularly doing this job can easily do this rather than any amateur handyman.

  • Awning windows

Here in this type of window, your screen should fit on the window’s inside so that it can easily seal when your sash is open. 

Usually, modern windows have a winder mechanism both in the middle and also inside your window. You have to fit the screen so that it can easily sit over this type of winder. 

In few cases, the gaps on the side of your winder will be already filled in, however, in few others, you need to use a “Tail Piece” that will be cut over your winder.

Typically, most modern winders available are of a generic size, and also the standard “Tail Piece” available has also got a pre-scored line to have a good fit. 

You can cut the tailpiece to go over your winder as follows:

  • Take a pair of 
  1. Tin snips
  2. The screen with uncut tailpiece
  3. Winder.
  • From your screen remove the tailpiece 
  • Offer the tailpiece again back to your winder present in your window frame and then mark with a pencil where you want to cut
  • Cut by using tin snips
  • Then snap off by using pliers and then by bending it back and forth.

Similarly, you can also find fly screens for doors that will prevent flies to enter through your doors too.
