Luckily in Australia, we are blessed with very good weather all year round, and this means that we can leave windows and doors open, in order to let fresh air flow into our homes and businesses. This allows the air inside the building to circulate and so the rooms don’t get stuffy. However, the downside of this is that it opens the way for bugs to make their way inside our homes and offices. The last thing you want to be doing is swatting away a mosquito or a fly while you’re trying to do your work, or your housework. Thankfully, we are able to put screens on our doors and windows to keep these critters out, and keep us bite-free.
The numerous benefits.
We have given the screens a name, and the screens are named after the very things that we want to keep out. I am, of course, referring to flies and so the name ‘fly screens’ was born. These are an essential piece of kit that every building should have, and they are particularly important in the hotter seasons when we experience more bugs. However, they are more than just bug catchers and here are just a few of the other benefits of having these fly screens put on your windows and doors.
- Keep out insects – If you decide to install some Rockingham fly screens, they not only keep out flies, but other bugs as well. Mosquitoes cause many life-threatening diseases throughout Australia every year, and a large number of people die from illnesses directly related to them. Anything that you can put on your home, to keep these on the outside where they should be, is money very well spent.
- Additional security – Generally, fly screens are quite light in weight, which makes them perfect for keeping out insects, but for not putting too much pressure on the frame of your window and door. However, you can get specially made fly screens that are much more durable and stronger, and help to make your premises more secure, as well as keeping out insects.
- Provide an element of privacy – Because they are made from traditional black mesh, they help to obscure the view of the inside of your home from people outside. This is perfect if you want to dissuade opportunist burglars from entering your home. If they can’t see anything, then they are not tempted to want to break into your house or business.
- Reduced energy bills – Due to the fact that fly screens let air circulate around the inside of your property, this means that you don’t have to turn on your air conditioner as often as you would, if you had to close your windows and doors securely. Free-flowing air helps to cool down the room and it also removes odours.
Fly screens are an essential and much needed addition to any windows and doors. If you didn’t have them installed, you would be unable to open your windows and doors, to allow fresh air to come in. They are very affordable and can be made to your own particular size specifications.
