Flexiscreens® flexible insect screens are manufactured in Tasmania Australia, by the family business owned and operated by Carol & John McGrath.
Our insect screens are made in Australia under fair working conditions. After visiting factories filled with both adults and children working in unacceptable conditions it was evident that manufacturing Flexiscreens® overseas was not an option. We decided to keep production in Australia under ethical, safe and monitored conditions.
Countries like India, Africa and China are exploited by the developed world as slave nations, we should open our eyes and reduce our ignorance. Sweatshops should not be a part of the modern world. Support Australia, young people and the ethics you believe in and buy Flexiscreens® insect screens!
Several Holidays to Tasmania from the Adelaide Hills eventually led us to a business manufacturing fly screens. We moved to Tasmania, Australia’s most southern state in August 2000 and commenced development work on the Flexiscreens® insect screen concept in October of that year. We found that the windows in our 1860’s cottage in the beautiful Huon Valley could not be screened with “standard aluminium” or rigid framed insect screens. After months working on a prototype, Flexiscreens® was born in 2001.
