Factors to Consider When Buying Fly Screens

May 27, 2022 1:21 am Published by

Summers in Australia can reach average temperatures ranging from 18.6 – 25.8°C (65.5 – 78.4°F) and last twice as long as winters. During this season, opening doors and windows provide relief from the heat. However, some homeowners hesitate to let in the fresh, cool breeze because of unwanted visitors—pesky insects, bugs and pests! Safeway Security Screens has the solution to that problem.

We protect your home against annoying and sometimes even dangerous tiny creatures. By having high-quality and stylish fly screens installed by us, you can keep your home’s entrances open during Australia’s humid summer months. We’ve listed some factors you should take into consideration when choosing fly screens in Perth.


Fly screens come in various types and materials, which affect pricing. If you have cash to spare, you can have your fly screens customised to meet your exact requirements. If you’re on a tight budget, you can opt for ready-made screens. Safeway Security Screens will help you find the best products that will give you maximum comfort, convenience and functionality while ensuring you keep well within your budget.

Strength and Durability

Fly screens are usually attached to doors and windows. Since these will be exposed to the elements, durability is an important factor to consider. Aluminum mesh is ideal for windows and doors that require additional strength. On the other hand, powder-coated charcoal finish screens are non-flammable and fire-resistant—perfect for bushfire zones. For households with pets, tuff mesh can withstand your furry friend’s scratches and bites.

Fixed versus Retractable

Retractable fly screens can be rolled out or folded away when you don’t need them. This way, you can have your window open without the fly screen in place. Fixed fly screens are permanent fixtures and cannot be removed without completely unscrewing them. Think about which doors and windows in your home are used the most, or which of these entrances and exits need to be fully open and accessible at times of the day.

Residential fly screens are also specially designed to keep your home safe from fire. Check your property’s BAL rating assessment and compliance before having fly screens installed to ensure that your provider is giving you the right options.


Fly screen materials vary depending on the materials they are made of and the size of the mesh. Below is a list of the most popular materials used:

  • Fibreglass
  • Aluminum
  • Stainless Steel
  • Solar
  • Pet Screen
  • Sandfly Screen
