How To Make Easy Insect Screens For Windows
Making easy insect screens for windows is a great DIY project that can help keep insects out of your home. Here are the steps to make easy insect screens for windows:
- Screen mesh
- Frame material (such as wooden dowels, PVC piping, or aluminium framing)
- Spline (rubber or vinyl cord used to secure the screen mesh in the frame)
- Corner pieces (if using frame material that requires it)
- Scissors or utility knife
- Measuring tape
- Spline roller tool (optional)
- Measure your window: Measure the height and width of your window frame to determine the size of your screen.
- Cut the frame material: Cut the frame material to the appropriate size using a saw or cutting tool. Be sure to cut four pieces, one for each side of the frame.
- Assemble the frame: If using wooden dowels or PVC piping, use corner pieces to join the pieces together. If using aluminum framing, use the included connectors to join the pieces together.
- Cut the screen mesh: Cut the screen mesh to size, leaving an extra inch on each side to allow for overlap.
- Install the spline: Press the spline into the groove on the frame material, starting at one corner and working your way around the frame. Use a spline roller tool to help press the spline into the groove, if necessary.
- Attach the screen mesh: Lay the screen mesh over the frame and use the spline roller tool to press it into the groove alongside the spline. Work your way around the frame, pulling the screen taut as you go.
- Trim the excess: Use scissors or a utility knife to trim the excess screen mesh from around the edges of the frame.
- Install the screen: Attach the screen to your window frame using clips or screws, depending on your window type.
Is Aluminium A Popular Insect Mesh?
Yes, aluminium is a popular material for insect mesh screens. Aluminium insect mesh is lightweight, durable, and resistant to corrosion, making it a good choice for use in areas with high moisture or exposure to the elements. It is also easy to clean and maintain, and does not rust or discolor over time.
Aluminium insect mesh is available in different mesh sizes and wire gauges to suit a variety of applications, from small insects like gnats and flies to larger pests like bees and wasps. It is commonly used in window screens, door screens, and vents to provide a barrier against insects while still allowing for airflow and natural light.
One advantage of aluminium insect mesh is that it is more rigid than other types of mesh, which can help it maintain its shape over time and prevent sagging or bowing. It is also easier to install than other types of mesh, since it can be cut and shaped using standard tools and does not require special equipment or expertise.
Aluminium vs Fibreglass?
Aluminium and fiberglass are two popular materials used in insect mesh screens, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
Aluminium insect mesh is durable, lightweight, and resistant to corrosion, making it a good choice for areas with high moisture or exposure to the elements. It is also more rigid than fiberglass, which can help it maintain its shape and prevent sagging over time. Aluminium mesh is easy to clean and maintain, and does not rust or discolour over time. One downside of aluminium mesh is that it can be more expensive than other types of mesh.
Fiberglass insect mesh, on the other hand, is less expensive than aluminium and can be a good choice for those on a budget. It is lightweight and easy to install, and is available in a range of mesh sizes and colours to suit different applications. Fiberglass mesh is also flexible and can be stretched taut over a frame without losing its shape. However, fiberglass mesh is not as durable as aluminium and may become damaged over time if exposed to the elements or if it is repeatedly stretched or pulled.
