We have 3 types of insect mesh

Premium Mesh

Designed to meet the needs of today’s screening requirements, made in the USA, Premium Mesh offers the ideal combination of strength, durability, visibility and airflow. Manufactured from hard-wearing polyester, Premium Mesh is the perfect choice for doors, patios, verandahs, pool enclosures and entertainment areas, as well as many other residential or commercial applications. Premium mesh is recommended for doors with moderate to high traffic, boisterous pets and childen.

Tear and Puncture Resistant

Premium Mesh features high strength vinyl-coated polyester core yarn, designed to resist punctures and tears caused by pets, children and wind-blown debris. This fabric is also exceptionally durable for lasting aesthetic appeal and low maintenance. Premium mesh carries a 3-Year warranty against functional defects in material.

Impressive Visibility and Airflow

The weave structure offers great protection against pests and insects whilst also allowing impressive visibility and airflow through the screen.

UV Resistant

Premium Mesh is ideal for use under the harsh Australian sun. It features UV tolerant properties to provide excellent colour retention, longevity and filtering characteristics.

Mildew Resistant

Premium Mesh also includes a biocide compound that resists mildew growth, yielding longer lasting beauty from the fabric. Premium Mesh has a 63% open surface area and has 17 x 14 strands per inch. 0.35mm diameter yarn.

Standard Mesh

Standard mesh is PVC coated woven fibreglass and is flexible and pliable.

Impressive visibility through the screen, economical to use, UV stabilised.

Standard Mesh has a 68% open surface area and has 18 x 14 strands per square inch. 0.25mm diameter yarn.

Standard mesh is only recommended for doors with low traffic and not exposed to the elements. Standard Mesh has a 68% open surface area and has 18 x 14 strands per inch. 0.25mm diameter yarn.

Micro Mesh

You will only need Micromesh if you live in a sand fly prone area, usually tropical areas, extra fine mesh to keep out the really small insects, or No-See-ums. Micro Mesh has a 50% open surface area and has 18 x 30 threads per square inch. 0.25mm diameter yarn. If you are not in a sand fly prone area we recommend using our premium, or standard mesh, but if you are worried about smaller insects such as midges then go for the Micro Mesh.

Please Note - Standard and Micro mesh for doors is unsuitable for high traffic areas, commercial use, robust children/pets and locations that are exposed to sunlight, or harsh weather.

We use mesh that is charcoal in colour this allows for the best vision, coloured mesh obstructs the view through the screen.
In saying that if you have a particular application and fabric that you want made up and it can be sewn with an industrial sewing machine then please ask.

The beauty of using a VELCRO® Brand fastener for a window insect screen is that you simply peel back the corner of the screen nearest your latch to open your window, it then presses back into place.
For the door screen you simply walk through the magnetic closure which closes automatically behind you. Remember to use a flat hand, or your elbow to push through the screen.

You can install Flexiscreens inside or outside remembering of course like any material that is exposed to the elements has a shorter life. Flexiscreens are fabricated using the highest quality components available. Simple DIY Installation time is about 10-20 minutes.

Firstly vacuum or brush the mesh to remove any unwanted dust or dirt.
Use a microfibre mitt dipped in cold water to remove any soiled areas, rinse and repeat if necessary.
Follow up and dry with a microfibre cloth (Available from your local hardware store, or supermarket.)
The VELCRO® Brand fastener part stuck on your frame can be vacuumed or cleaned with a stiff dry nailbrush.

Flexiscreens® are suitable for a wide range of Doors, large openings and windows, including;

– Sash & casement window screens.
– Awning & hopper window screens.
– Out of square window screens
– Decorative security doors insect screens.
– Windows with shutters.
– Both new and old windows as well as for any other unusually shaped opening, custom made to your measurements.

We custom make door fly screens (not to be confused with the cheap mass produced versions that are widely advertised on TV and sold in Variety and Hardware stores.)
The door screen is anchored at the top of the frame by a continuous strip of 25mm width VELCRO® Brand fastener, the sides are anchored by a continuous strip of 13mm width VELCRO® Brand fastener. (25mm VELCRO® Brand fastener on larger screens.)
On average 24 pairs of high quality neodymium magnets (rare earth) are used for each magnetic closure allowing easy access and ensuring perfect closure every time.
Access points can be positioned where you need them.
Ideal for pets, children, even adults who have their hands full.

Decorative security doors and windows can be screened with ease.
Flexiscreens fix on all 4 sides of the decorative frame similar to our window screen.
We can cut out for the lock if you supply its dimensions i.e. how far down from the top of the door, how wide, how long, there is a charge of AUD 15 for this, we confirm this charge with you before processing your order.

Flexiscreens® fly screen can sit on any plane so if you don’t have a face wide enough (this is the part of the window frame that faces you as you are looking at your frame) you can attach it to the reveal (this is the part of the frame that is at right angles to the face.) If you envisage looking into a lid of a shoe box this is how your Flexiscreens® will sit into your reveal frame, we clip out the corners for a neat snug fit.
NB: Face fit (Shear) 5 times stronger than Reveal fit (Peel).

Flexiscreens® are guaranteed to be free from defects in material and workmanship for twelve months. Screens manufactured with Premium mesh carry a 3-Year functional defect in material warranty, on the mesh component only.
All materials have been carefully selected to provide maximum durability.
Mechanical damage, including gradual fading is expressly excluded from our warranty, as we cannot control how the screen is used.
Our standard mesh is only recommended for door screens with low traffic and no exposure to the elements.
Ideal application temperature for the VELCRO® Brand fastener is above 18c.
Performance of the adhesive is not guaranteed because the use of this product is beyond our control, no warranty expressed or implied can be given for the results obtained. The adhesive used in the VELCRO® Brand fastener is a high performer when handled correctly (installation instructions supplied with each purchase.)

Flexiscreens are not going to snap, blow off, break, shrink or stretch like old fashioned rigid and difficult to use insect screens.
Insect screens can be manufactured for any opening, door, or window.
Normal screens are rigid and typically not able to be specified in awkward locations such as odd shaped or out of square windows and doors, they don’t provide a complete seal against flying and crawling insects either like Flexiscreens® do.

Being flexible means they can be easily ordered on-line and posted direct to you (free delivery) ready for an easy DIY installation.
The VELCRO® Brand fastener holds on indefinitely – speeds of 110 km/hr have been noted.

The VELCRO® Brand fastener has flexibility allowing the screen to be folded and rolled for storage along with ease of use when in situ.
The VELCRO® Brand fastener also has the potential of 10,000 openings (this is approximately 14 years if you open and close your window daily.)

We use high quality components to ensure longevity and performance, custom made door & window screens to your measurements. Flexiscreens are not mass produced.

Each door screen is fabricated using a continuous length of 25mm width genuine VELCRO® Brand fastener for the top fix and 13mm for the Left & Right Hand Side.

Rare earth magnets that won’t rust and weaken over time are used for the magnetic closure.

Our Premium mesh is PVC coated woven polyester and our standard mesh is PVC coated woven fibreglass, trim tape is fire retardant and UV stable, polyester core threads.

Proudly Australian Made.
