All fly and insect screens are purpose made using tough resilient materials. Whether you require hinged, sliding or fixed screens for windows or doors we have a solution. For use on domestic or industrial premises screens can be made in standards or heavy-duty materials.

  • Fly & Insect Screens Provide Protection

At best flying insects are a nuisance and unhygienic; some may sting you, others may bite you.  At their worst they are dangerous - even life threatening.  In recent years variations in our climate have allowed malaria carrying mosquitoes to reach the south of England.  Every year there are more reports of the horrors of insect infestations and swarms of stinging wasps.  The risk of insect borne disease is expected to carry on rising.  Scientists have recently stated that fly populations in Britain could soar this century due to climate change.

  • Fly & Insect Screens Provide Natural Ventilation

Flying insects enter your home or workplace through open doors and windows, often attracted by abundant food sources and bright lights.  Installing screens will allow you to enjoy the fresh air whilst reducing the health risks associated with insects.

  • Fly and Insect Screens Prevent Food Contamination

The common house fly (Musca Domestica) is a known carrier of typhoid and dysentery.  Contamination of food is now recognised as the most common means of disease transmission, the most common cause of diarrhoea in Britain is the bacteria Campylobacter.  Flies transmit these bacteria, either by carrying small quantities of contaminated material on their bodies or by regurgitating or defecating on food.

  • Food Safety regulations

Proprietors and managers of all food businesses must ensure that their businesses comply with the relevant legislation.

Chapter 2 of schedule 1 of Food safety (General Food Hygiene) Regulations 1995 of the Food safety Act 1990 states that:

            In rooms where food is prepared, treated or processed (excluding dining areas) windows and other openings must be constructed to prevent the accumulation of dirt.  Those which can be opened to the outside environment must where necessary be fitted with insect proof screens which can easily be removed for cleaning.
