Grey Fibreglass Insect Mesh Roll For Soffit Vents
This top quality European made insect mesh provides excellent netting for soffit vents. This mesh is ideally used to block air-bricks, soffit vents etc for insect deterrent. This mesh is light but it does prevent birds and insects from gaining entry into holes, nooks and crannies. The most common use for this light mesh is as a door or window screen fly mesh.
Grey fibreglass insect mesh soffit rolls are rolls of grey coloured fibreglass mesh used as a screening material to prevent insects from entering the soffit (underside) of a building. The fibreglass material is durable, lightweight, and resistant to weathering, making it a popular choice for outdoor use. The mesh is available in rolls and can be cut to size using scissors and fit the specific needs of a building’s soffit area.
Soffit vents are used to allow air to circulate through the attic or roof space of a building, and fibreglass insect mesh can be used to screen the openings to prevent insects from entering while still allowing air to flow through. However, it’s important to ensure that the mesh does not restrict the airflow too much, as this can lead to damp and condensation problems in the attic or roof space.

FAQs For This Product
Does Fibreglass Insect Mesh Work Well Behind Airbricks?
Yes, fibreglass insect mesh can be used to block an airbrick. Airbricks are designed to provide ventilation to the cavities and subfloor spaces of a building, and fibreglass insect mesh can be used to cover them to prevent insects from entering while still allowing air to circulate through. However, it’s important to note that blocking or reducing the airflow in these spaces can result in damp and condensation problems, so it’s essential to consult with a building professional before making any changes to your airbrick vents.
Is Fibreglass Mesh Strong?
Fibreglass insect mesh is a relatively strong material. The strength of fibreglass insect mesh depends on the thickness and quality of the fibreglass fibres used, but in general, it is a durable and long-lasting material that can withstand exposure to the elements and physical stress. The mesh is also resistant to corrosion, making it a suitable material for outdoor use. However, it’s important to note that the strength of fibreglass insect mesh can be reduced over time by exposure to UV light, heat, and moisture, so it’s essential to select a high-quality mesh and to replace it if it becomes damaged.
Fibreglass insect mesh specifically is light, and has the feel of a fabric. It is designed as a screening material for indoor use ideally.
How Do I Fit Soffit Mesh?
Here is a general guide to fit soffit mesh:
- Measure the size of the soffit area: Measure the length and width of the soffit area that needs to be covered and determine the number of mesh panels required.
- Cut the mesh to size: Use scissors or a utility knife to cut the mesh panels to the size you need.
- Attach the mesh to the soffit: Secure the mesh panels to the soffit using a staple gun or adhesive.
- Seal the edges: Use silicone sealant to seal the edges of the mesh panels and prevent insects from entering through the gaps.
- Repeat the process: Repeat the process for each panel until the entire soffit area is covered.
Will This Block Mosquitoes?
A 1mm hole size in insect mesh may provide some protection against mosquitoes, but it may not be completely effective. Mosquitoes can be quite small and may be able to pass through holes of this size. To provide better protection against mosquitoes, it is recommended to use mesh with smaller holes or to choose an alternative control method, such as using mosquito nets or insect repellent. It is also important to remove standing water and other potential breeding sites for mosquitoes, as this can help to reduce the mosquito population in the area.
