FAQs For This Insect Screen Product
What Is An Insect Screen?
Galvanised steel woven wire insect screen mesh is a type of screen mesh made from galvanised steel wire. Galvanizing is a process of coating steel with a protective layer of zinc, which helps to prevent rust and corrosion. The galvanised steel wire is woven into a mesh pattern to create a durable, fine mesh screen that can be used to keep insects out of buildings while allowing air to circulate.
Galvanised steel woven wire insect screen mesh is a popular choice for insect screens because it is strong and long-lasting. The mesh is typically available in various mesh sizes (the number of wires per inch) and wire diameters, which can be selected depending on the specific application. The mesh size can determine the level of insect protection provided, while the wire diameter can affect the strength and durability of the mesh.
How To Make Insect Screen Frame
To make an insect screen frame using galvanised steel woven wire mesh, you can follow these steps:
- Determine the size of the screen frame you need. Measure the area where you want to install the insect screen, such as a window or door.
- Purchase the materials. You will need galvanised steel woven wire mesh, aluminium or PVC frame material, a spline roller, spline, and corner connectors.
- Cut the frame material to size. Use a saw to cut the aluminium or PVC frame material to the length and width you need. Make sure to cut four pieces that will fit together to form the frame.
- Assemble the frame. Use corner connectors to join the four pieces of the frame material together. Make sure the corners are square and the frame is sturdy.
- Cut the mesh to size. Cut the galvanised steel woven wire mesh to the size of the frame, leaving a little extra on each side.
- Attach the mesh to the frame. Lay the mesh on top of the frame and use a spline roller to press the mesh into the frame. Make sure the mesh is taut and there are no wrinkles.
- Secure the mesh with spline. Use a spline roller to push spline (a rubber cord) into the groove around the edge of the frame, over the mesh. This will hold the mesh in place.
- Trim the excess mesh. Use a sharp utility knife to trim the excess mesh along the edge of the spline.
- Install the insect screen. Install the insect screen into the window or door frame using screws or other appropriate fasteners.
What Do You Use To Cut This Mesh?
We would use standard kitchen scissors to cut this mesh to size. Simply line it up in front of you and cut along the aperture. Be careful not to cut across the wires as this can leave a sharp edge.
We have written detailed articles on aluminium fly mesh, stainless steel insect meshing and fibreglass soffit mesh. These guides should help you to make an informed decision before choosing which insect mesh would be the best solution for your requirements.
