How Do I Properly Install The Mesh On Windows Or Doors?
- Measure & Cut: Begin by measuring the window or door frame where you wish to install the mesh. Once measured, cut the aluminium fly mesh, keeping in mind its unique 18 x 14 holes per linear inch rectangular design, a little larger than the frame. This ensures you have some leeway and margin for error.
- Check for Orientation: Given its rectangular hole structure (1.03 x 1.21mm apertures), ensure you align the mesh in the desired direction, especially if you prefer one orientation over the other for aesthetic or functional reasons.
- Secure the Mesh: Lay the mesh, made of 0.18mm thick wire, over your frame. Starting from one corner, use suitable clips or staples to fasten it. Stretch the mesh taut as you move along, ensuring no wrinkles or sags.
- Trim Excess: With the mesh secured, use a sharp cutter to trim any excess beyond the frame for a clean finish.
- Install the Frame: If your window or door has a groove designed for a frame, slide the mesh-covered frame into it. If there’s no groove, use an appropriate adhesive or fastening method to attach it.
- Test: Post-installation, open and close the window or door to check for any obstructions or issues with the mesh.
Can The Mesh Be Cut To Fit Custom Dimensions?
Yes, the aluminium fly mesh can be easily cut to fit custom dimensions. Given its wire thickness of 0.18mm and its unique 18 x 14 holes per linear inch rectangular design, it offers flexibility for custom sizing. You can use regular metal snips or a sharp utility knife to trim it to your desired size. When cutting, ensure you measure and mark your dimensions accurately on the mesh to achieve a precise fit for your window, door, or any other application. Always wear protective gloves to prevent any cuts or scrapes during the process.
