"The screens are a great product, perfect for my tilt-n-turn windows for which there was no other viable option. Also, customer service is SUPERB and highly cooperative. I made a miscalculation on my window sizes and the company was extremely helpful and reasonable when I asked for help. I almost never write reviews, but BOTH the product and the service are exceptional."
"I love the screens! Easy to put together and easy to use… Great value for money…would highly recommend these screens."
"We saw this product in Europe and came back and found it…….. It took us about 15 minutes to assemble……. Works perfectly on our window, seals nicely all around the frame. We are happy it worked, save us some money from custom made."
"I was very happy with this product. I am a women and the product was easy enough for me to assemble and install on my own without the help of a handy man. The design is simple and effective. Also, it can be opened exactly as shown on the picture. The advantage of this product over fixed Musquito (sic) windows is 1. Price 2. No holes 3. Can be removed in the winter months when there are no Musquitos (sic) so that the view is unobstructed."
"This product works well……. Note to buyer: be very careful about measuring. I ended up making my screen 1/2 an inch too small and have to start over entirely with a new kit to cut the right size out of the mesh and pvc/magnets (not the product’s fault, but mine)."

The Different Types of Mesh for Window Screens
A lot of homes are fitted with insect screens in order to keep insects like mosquitoes and flies from entering your house, and to protect your family from the diseases which these insects can carry.
Often one does not pay too much attention to the particular screening which they have or which is on the insect screens which they intend to buy, perhaps assuming that all insect screening is pretty much the same.
But it is actually rather important to think about this since if your insect mesh is too large, then it can allow very small insects like midges (otherwise known as ‘no see-ums’, biting midges or the Ceratopogonidae insect)and sand flies through.
On the other hand, if the mesh is too fine it tends to bend or tear more easily. Here is an overview of the types of screening available in order to let you make a more informed decision.
Standard fibreglass mesh – the most common insect mesh
This type of mesh screen is both economical for manufacturing and relatively easy to install, so it is by far the most commonly used variety of mesh.
It is available in both charcoal and silver grey colouring, and it is quite durable and normally does not unravel, dent, or crease up. It will serve to keep out just about everything except for the very tiniest of insects with a mesh size of 18 mm x 16 mm.
Midge screen, or “No-see-um” insect mesh
This is another variety of mesh that is intended to keep out very small insects like gnats, midges, and sand flies that tend to populate low lying or marshy environments.
There is also a heavier-duty type of this mesh available that is generally ideal for pool enclosures, but this variety is fairly expensive in comparison with other types of meshing. This mesh generally only comes is charcoal coloring and has a diameter of 20mm x 20 mm.
