Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
Retractable fly screens, Melbourne homeowners say, offer the twin benefits of enjoying a great view of the outdoors while keeping insects and bugs out. Unlike conventional insect screens, retractable fly screens are elegant and uncluttered; they are also unobtrusive, easy to remove, and can fit well with larger modern bi-fold and sliding doors that have become popular among modern households.
But despite their numerous features that make them a great alternative to bistro blinds, cassette fly screens have their own limitations, like the size and performance during windy conditions. In order to address these issues and more, Victoria's leading blinds manufacturer is set to release a new line of insect screens – the pleated retractable fly screens.
The new range of fly screens will include three models: the Plisse, Zig Zag and Minyl17. Just like Blockout Blinds' current offering of fly screens, pleated fly screens can be operated smoothly and have the ability to stop at any position. But these fly screens offer several benefits over their retractable counterparts. For one, they can be used to cover larger and more difficult areas. Measuring 38 mm wide, they can be installed into the recess of most bi-fold doors. Compared to regular retractable fly screens which have a bottom track of 22 mm, the pleated version has a bottom track that measures as small as 3 mm. This makes them perfect for indoor and outdoor transitions. Plus, homeowners and their guests are less likely to trip over them. Pleated fly screens also perform better during windy conditions compared to their counterparts while in terms of price, they are less expensive.
For wider applications like bifolds and alfresco areas, homeowners can benefit from Plisse retractable pleated fly screens. This model utilises a tractor system to retain the mesh and a 3 mm high bottom track. The tractor system is hidden in the vertical frame of the screen mechanism, visible only during use.
On the other hand, the Zig Zag does away with the use of the tractor system to retain the mesh. Instead, the model utilises a bottom track that measures 7 mm high which allows it to be used for areas up to 4.5 m wide and to be stacked to the left or right.
The Minyl17 is ideal for areas that use single and French doors. Measuring 17 mm wide and utilising a bottom track that is only 5 mm in height, this model is ideal for areas where detail is important.
