Benefits of Fly Screens in the home

Fly Screens | Glasgow | Scotland

Do you sometimes find yourself going from room to room with the Insect or Fly Spray? With our summers becoming much warmer and the open windows and doors that come alongside that... flies will inevitably gain access to your home. Fly Screens are becoming more and more popular in this part of the world. Here are some real benefits to installing fly screens in your house. 

Excluding the obvious, blocking out flies, several benefits fly screens can provide to any family home. Let's have a look at some of them.

Keeping out insects
Fly screens keep all pests where they belong – outside the home. This is especially important in the warmer months when wasps, bees and our very famous 'midgey' are particularly prevalent.

Keeping children safe
Fly screens are perfect for stopping small kids from accessing areas that they should not be near, for example, the front or back garden without supervision. Rather than having to close all doors and create a fortress, fly screens are an attractive solution for controlling access while keeping children safe.

Many fly screens can provide an element of privacy, as the traditional black mesh construction makes it difficult for someone outside to see in, especially from a distance. At the same time, those inside can still see out. Definitely a benefit.

All of our Fly Screens use only the best in materials and utilise some of the most cutting in technology and design principles. Yes, there is always going to be a slight change in the look of your windows and doors, but we believe our Fly Screens only enhance your home.

Saving energy
By installing fly screens throughout the home, a consistent flow of air can be achieved. This natural ventilation can help keep a home cool during the warm months without the need to run (often expensive) air conditioning or cold air blowers/fans systems. This is beneficial for both the house budget and, of course, the environment.

Reduce UV Rays
Fly screens are able to block out direct sun light, this reduces the build-up of heat inside your house. The added benefit of blocking direct sunlight also means that it can prevent damage to furniture and floors that can be caused by U.V. rays.

Introducing natural light
It's fairly obvious... but fly screens allow significantly more amounts of natural light to flood into a room. The nature of the (mostly) transparent surface of a flyscreen allows natural light to enter a room where it would otherwise be blocked. This can add to the feeling of more space and light also has additional energy saving benefits as a result.

A flow of air
Due to their mesh construction, fly screens provide a barrier without stopping air flow. This air circulation and ventilation provide a regular supply of clean air to a home, which is excellent for your health. Stale air in blocked off areas can allow for the build-up of bacteria. Poor ventilation can create an environment that is prone to mould, bringing with it the risk of bacterial and respiratory infections. With proper circulation and ventilation, your family will feel healthier and happier.

Maintaining the view
With the use of our fly screens, most of the traditional benefits of a solid door are sustained, but with the additional benefit of being able to see the outdoors.

We really believe that installing Fly Screens throughout your home is a worthwhile investment.
