Protect your loved ones from insect borne disease by installing Flexiscreens on your Doors and Windows!
We have 3 types of insect mesh
Designed to meet the needs of today’s screening requirements, our new Premium Mesh offers the ideal combination of strength, durability, visibility and airflow.
Manufactured from hard-wearing polyester, our new 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.
Tear and Puncture Resistant
Our 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.
Impressive Visibility and Airflow
The weave structure offers great protection against pests and insects whilst also allowing impressive visibility and airflow through the screen.
Our 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.
Our 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.
Our standard mesh is PVC coated woven fibreglass and is flexible and pliable.
Impressive visibility through the screen, economical to use, UV stabilised to ensure long life.
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.
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.
Additional charges for non-standard mesh are added on after you submit your order and then confirmed by separate email.
Question: Can I have my screens made with a coloured mesh or another fabric?
Answer: 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.
How do you use a flexible Flexiscreens®?
•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 open the screen.
Can I install this type of bug screen outdoors?
•You can install Flexiscreens inside or outside remembering of course like any material that is exposed to the elements has a shorter life, in saying that Flexiscreens are fabricated using the highest quality components available.
•Simple DIY Installation
time is about 10-20 minutes.
How do I clean my Flexiscreens®?
•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 (see attached photo of microfibre mit and cloth, available from your local hardware store.)
•The VELCRO® Brand fastener part stuck on your frame can be vacuumed or cleaned with a stiff dry nailbrush.
What are Flexiscreens suitable for?
•We custom make door fly screens
(not to be confused with the cheap mass produced versions that are widely advertised on TV) that have tiny neodymium magnets (rare earth) inserted down the centre, this allows you to walk through and closing automatically behind you.
•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.
•We use on average 24 pairs of high quality neodymium magnets (rare earth) for the magnetic closure allowing easy access and ensuring perfect closure every time.
•Access points can be positioned where you need them most.
•Ideal for pets
, children, even adults who have their hands full.

My Decorative security door needs an insect screen but it has a lock?
•Decorative security doors
and windows can be screened with ease. See the last 3 pictures here.
•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 10 for this, we confirm with you before processing your order.
I have shutters and bars, can your fly screen suit this application?
What if I don’t have a 13mm (.5″) edge to attach my Flexiscreens®?
•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 frame, we clip out the corners for a neat snug fit.
NB: Face fit (Shear) is far superior and over 5 times stronger than Reveal fit (Peel). (See diagram below)
