What are the differences in the mesh?

While Fibreglass mesh is the standard for flywire screens and doors, we also offer heavier meshes for security doors. Stainless Steel mesh is stronger than fibreglass mesh, while still being thin enough for good light and air flow. It's use is mandated in rural areas or areas at risk of bushfires.

Supermesh is a galvanised iron product that is thick, heavy and great for security. DVA is also known as 1-way mesh: you can see out but not in. This is a great product for entrance doors as it provides security while allowing light and air to circulate. Perforated mesh is a steel product much heavier than Supermesh with circular holes punched throughout. It is a good choice for areas that require privacy and security.

I live in a rural area, why do I need Stainless Steel?

If you live in a bushfire prone area Stainless Steel mesh is a much safer option than fibreglass mesh. Unlike fibreglass, Stainless Steel mesh is fire resistant and strong, meaning that embers are less likely to be blown into your home through a broken window or door. As it is also a more complex product to work with, all Stainless Steel mesh products are made in our factory and installed at a later date.

When is the best time to get work done?

Winter. Why? Because the busiest time of year for us is late Spring and Summer, as no-one thinks about flyscreens until the flies have come out again! However, with so many people looking for installers at the same time this causes a huge backlog of clients and jobs at the start of the summer months across the industry, with some customers waiting as long as 2 months for an Installer to become available.

We therefore recommend that you plan to replace screens and doors in Winter as this is traditionally the slower portion of the year, meaning you can pick a date that suits you and not because it's the only appointment you can get.
