Benefits of Fly Screens in Your Conservatory

Fly screen

It is a very good idea to set up a fly screen in your conservatory. This applies to any time of the year but especially during the spring and summer months when flies are even more of a presence. Not only may you find they get somewhat annoying flying around you, but there are also hygiene issues to consider. After all, you do not want flies landing on food, this can lead to all sorts of illnesses.

Why should I get a fly screen in my conservatory? 

There are benefits to the use of fly screens around your home that you may not have considered. For starters, they help by providing a bit of added security to your home and help maintain privacy. During spring and summer as the weather improves most people will want to be letting more air into their homes, and a lot of people would rather this was natural air than air that is generated from an aircon.

However, if a door or window is left open this is asking for insects to enter your home. Therefore, a fly screen allows for a happy medium. The fly screen is designed to cover the full opening of a window. With this in place, the window should be sealed against insects being able to enter but still allowing fresh air into the house.

As well as for windows, you can also purchase fly screens for doors that work with the same principle as fly screens for windows. An insect screen is ideal for your conservatory as this is a common area in which bugs will try to enter into your home.

Main types of fly screens 

There are three main types of fly screens for windows which we will go into now. 

Retractable Fly Screens

First, you have retractable fly screens which can be used in place of windows or doors. When you don’t need them, you can retract them back. 

Sliding-fixed Fly Screens

Sliding-fixed fly screens are made for sliding doors but work exactly the same as the non-sliding version.

Hinged Fly Screens

A little different is hinged fly screens. These are made to fit onto a door or window using a hinged framework and will work best for smaller doors or windows. They have a mechanism that allows the screens to open like how shutters work.

Now maybe the perfect time to begin looking into purchasing a fly screen for your conservatory. So that when spring and summer arrives you won’t be driven crazy by invasive flies or bugs.
