Simple 4 Step DIY Installation

  • Apply the magnetic strip around your window frame (this is a 3M self adhesive product & is very strong)
  • Cut your screen to size & affix the mesh (the mesh is secured to the screen by using a grooved magnetic strip – pretty ingenious)
  • Attach the now magnetized screen to the magnetic strip around your window
  • Enjoy your open window and let air in to your house without any bugs, flies, spiders or mosquitoes

Our magnetic fly screens should fit most window types, even windows for awnings, sliding windows, casement windows, louvre windows, and double hung windows.

You can open your windows up nice and wide and simply fit your new magnetic screens into them. Opening and closing your windows is also made very simple with our screens: simply peel back one corner of the screen to access to the window handle. No matter the style of window our magnetic window screens will work perfectly.

In the case of some window styles, casement, push-out, and wind-out awning windows, for instance, installing window screens was not possible before now.

Magnetic screens provide an ideal solution for windows that have been traditionally difficult to screen. Magnetic fly screens are not only versatile but also cost effective, and they allow you to maintain an insect-free house without giving up fresh air.

The size of every window is slightly different, and accordingly customized screens are necessary.

Each of our insect screens are individually tailored to your window frames. Our screens will be cut to measure and then delivered ready to install, directly to your door.

You simply have to put together the magnetic insect screens and then clip them onto the magnetic strips which will be attached around the edges of your windows. Handles in the corners make it easy to install, as well as remove and clean your screens, while the interlocking clips will firmly hold the screen in place.

The mesh of the screens can also be easily removed and replaced.

The magnetic strip can be affixed to window frames made from timber, aluminium, or pvc. In order to match your window frames, our screen trim is available in brown, white, brown and charcoal, and the mesh comes in both black and charcoal as well.

Our magnetic fly screens will not get in the way of easily opening and closing your windows, and are also very easy to remove for cleaning or mesh replacement. Please note, however, that our magnetic fly screens are designed to keep out insects only.

We will deliver for free to most urban areas all over the world. Depending on your particular area, however, you may be charged an extra fee for delivery. After your payment has been processed, your order will be prepared in just 2 to 3 days.

The DIY magnetic window screen is installed onto your window via a “permanently temporary” magnetic strip so that it does not affect your existing window frame and is especially designed to blend into the background so it is principally invisible from a small distance. This effective low cost (cheap!) window screen allows you to have a high quality of life without the worry of mosquitoes, lizards or other insects in your house. It is easy to remove for cleaning (just spray/clean with water and detergent).

If you have double hung or casement windows and are scratching your head about what is the best DIY fly screen solution to protect your family and house from those irritating, dirty and potentially disease carrying insects – DIY Magnetic Insect Screens are the ideal solution.

Magnetic fly screens can be custom adapted to fit windows of all types and sizes, simply and easily.

They are very durable and flexible making them not only easy to clean but also easy to use and potentially store away when not required (eg during those winter months).

Finger tabs on the bottom corners of each magnetic fly screen enable you to pull the screen away from the window.

The magnetic insect screen flexes easily out of the way providing you unhindered access to open and close your windows, just let the corner tab go and it will simply snap back into place.

The flexible PVC frame of the magnetic insect screen is far less bulky and obtrusive compared with traditional aluminium framed fly screens.

“On older homes where no 2 windows are the same size and sometimes out of square also, magnetic screens are ideal because they are individually measured to fit with millimetre accuracy to ensure that they fit perfectly.”

The overall effect of having slimline frames and the fly screens being easily DIY custom fitted to individual windows results in a very tidy and professional looking finish that often gives a lifting effect on a room. They are the perfect addition to any home.

Magnetic flyscreens have been around for many years and like any product, there are better quality models and brands and then there is the rest.

The earliest documented reference to window screens is found in an 1823 edition of American Farmer that mentions “woven wire” for window screens. The earliest known patent for window screening was filed July 7th, 1868, by McCluskey and Bayley. By the early 20th century, window screens were already widely used, mostly for preventing mosquitoes and other winged insects from coming indoors. Insect screens were also considered as an excellent investment for health and safety in the case of those having serious allergies to bees or other insects.

The first window screens were made of woven horse hair, later replaced with galvanized steel in 1920. Subsequent window screens were made from aluminum or fiberglass. Despite all the various materials, however, the fundamental purpose has remained the same: preventing insects from entering your home without giving up views of the outdoors or fresh air.
