Insects are a problem during some parts of the year, usually the summer months. It makes a lot of sense to use flyscreens during these months to keep insects out of the house.
Yet we might want to put the screens away during the months when insects are not a problem. Older style windows did not allow this. But modern screens give us several options.
A retractable fly screen is possible because of the flexible fly screen mesh. This allows screens to be rolled up and stored, sometimes at the window, sometimes stored elsewhere. Older style screens were either inflexible and permanently attached to the window, or were a flexible style that required a solid frame to retain their shape. Retractable screens are more convenient than these older options.
At SK Screens we believe the best retractable fly screen option is the 4-sided Button roll insect screen. This conveniently rolls into an overhead bar above the window.
Fly Screens mesh can also be fitted to the windows magnetically, or with Velcro. But we believe the 4-sided or 3-sided retractable screens are superior.
Consider fly screen frames for your home during summer, so you can enjoy the weather and the breeze without the insects.
