How do I clean my screen?
It is important for the longevity of the screen to keep it clean. The aluminium frame work can be simply wiped over with a soft cloth and a mild cleaning agent if required. With the mesh dry, use a soft brush to remove any debris, then gently clean with a cloth and mild cleaning solution if needed. With the retractable screens, allow the mesh to fully dry before retracting!

Can Flydor screens be fitted outside?
What screens can I fit in a Commercial kitchen?
What screens can I use in my conservatory with French Doors?
The Unika and Genius retractable screens are the most popular type of screens fitted in conservatories today. The screens' mesh is neatly retracted back into its cassette when not in use, and therefore any window handles shouldn't cause a problem. Small top opening window vents, are normally protected with the Unika model as the profile is neat and unobtrusive.
I have an old style wooden window with a stay at the bottom what screen would be suitable?
A simple hinged framed screen with an additional brush strip fitted to the bottom edge is the most widely used solution. The additional brush strip would allow the stay to "stick" through the bristle when the window is being used. The T10 model is ideal for this type of application.
Do you have anything that will keep my pets in?
Both the Tuff Mesh and Suntex meshes are resistant to pets' claw cuts and are very strong and durable. These meshes being thick and heavy, also act as a visual deterent. The Tuff mesh can be found in the Genius Retractable screen, and both meshes are widely available in any of the framed screens Flydor manufacture. However please be aware, that all screens are designed for insect protection, and NO screen is truly "pet proof" and a determined animal may still be able to get out!
