With the coming of warm days, people open their windows, terrace doors and balconies to allow fresh air to circulate around their rooms. Unfortunately, together with opening the windows, they let in flying insects, small rodents and dirt (airborne pollen, dust, leaves …). In order to ensure comfort and protection against external factors it is advisable to screen your doors and windows.
Insect screen is a mesh fitted to doors and windows, designer to keep insects and dust from entering a building. The possibility to select items in any types and sizes whatsoever according to their function and type of window aperture ensures our screens fit your specific needs.

FRAME INSECT SCREEN
Frame insect screens are easily fitted on existing window frames with the use of non-invasive turn buttons. The screen frame is furnished with a brush strip installed on the outside, which ensures a seal with the existing frame and keeps insects out of a room.
Frame insect screens are an ideal solution for windows, which are usually open to ensure air circulation. Installed at the beginning of spring, insect screens will work very well till late autumn. After this period, the insect screen needs to be removed, cleaned, stored and again put to use once the good weather arrives.
Frame insect screens can be removed and fixed again by simply twisting turn buttons, which is a great advantage.
NOVELTY: ANWIS introduced frame insect screens in non-standard shapes – semicircles, polygons, triangles and trapeziums.
ROLLER INSECT SCREEN
Roller insect screens come in horizontal and vertical versions and they are applied both to windows and balcony doors.
They are furnished with guides and a spring drive, which allow swift retraction of the screen mesh into the cassette, form a complete seal unit and keep out insects and dust. Vertical roller screens are usually applied to windows. After the screen mesh is pulled down, it is fitted to a hooked bottom bar or catches in the guides. After the screen mesh has been released from the catches, a built-in braking system allows its smooth and slow retraction into the cassette without damaging it.
Horizontal sliding screens are an ideal solution for covering balcony and terrace doors. Locked with a magnetic tape, sliding system allows swift glide operation of the panels.
It is also worth pointing out that selected types of roller shutters can be fitted with roller screens. The only limitation is size – maximum surface of such roller shutter with a screen mesh is 5 m2.
HINGED INSECT SCREEN
Hinged insect screens, applied to widows as well as balcony doors, are mounted with hinges to façades of a building or window frames. They are fitted with a handle and catch magnets, which hold them in place when closed, and a brush gasket, which ensures a maximum seal to keep out insects and dust. Additionally, the screens are fitted with built-in self-closing system, which closes properly open insect screens and ensure comfort of their use.
In order to improve rigidity of door frames in hinged door screens, it is possible to apply closed aluminium profile.
Insect screens are recommended for kitchens, children bedrooms and buildings located by lakes and shopping centres.
