Whether it’s a large office or a small business, a rural property or a townhouse, trust the professionals at Central Screens & Locks to keep your property safe and secure, day and night.
Security Fly Screens PerthFly screens have been a common sight in Western Australian households. Being a great addition to security doors and windows, installing fly screens allows you to make the most of good weather while keeping your home protected from the elements, bugs and more.
Create a secure home or business
Security is paramount when it comes to having a safe home – however, this can come with some drawbacks. During extreme heat commonly found during the summer months in Western Australia, not having proper airflow through your property can make living uncomfortable.
Fly screens allow for the doors and windows in your house to remain protected while opened. While flyscreens do provide some protection from bugs and debris, for maximum protection from intruders, consider having security screens professionally installed.
Fly screens, security screens or roller shutters?
Unlike roller shutters that provide complete coverage, fly screens are made a bit different. With a mesh-like design, fly screens can allow air to flow through the window or door while still stopping small objects like dust, bugs and small pests from getting through.
Roller shutters take security to the next level, completely covering any window (or in some cases, doors) to prevent intruders and unwanted guests from entering your home or business. While roller shutters are great for security, they restrict light and air from entering your premises.
To have the benefits of both flyscreens (airflow and preventing bugs/pests) and security shutters (security to prevent intruders), many home and business owners opt for security windows and security doors.
Selecting the right fly screen
It can be easy to assume that fly screens are all quite similar, however – when you consider design and production – there is a wide range available to cater to many different doors and windows.
- Standard Fly Screens – The most basic form of flyscreen simply has the mesh material within a frame. These screens are installed on windows and can be easily replaced if they take any damage from things such as weather.
- Retractable Fly Screens – These fly screens act in a similar way to roller blinds in that they roll and unroll from their rail. Retractable screens like these can only be made with softer mesh material to allow for the rolling.
- Sliding Fly Screens – More commonly seen in Western Australia, these screens are mounted onto tracks with wheels so they can easily slide open and closed. These are usually mounted alongside normal external sliding doors when access is required.
- Hinged Fly Screens – Another common sight in and around the Perth metro area, this type of screen is attached to a door using a hinge. These are more commonly seen on a home’s front door but can be found on other external doors and windows.
