Mesh Types

Types of Mesh

There are several different types of mesh, all made for specific purposes.  The mesh options for your screens include:

Fly Mesh

This is the most common type of mesh.  It is used as standard in our Fly Screens, Diamond Grille Screens and colonial cast screens.  It is made of fibre glass.  It is very soft and flexible, it has a tight weave, and will not rust, rot or corrode.

Paw Proof Mesh

A stronger, thicker mesh that gives a little.  It is ideal for families with pets or in high traffic areas.

Aluminium Mesh

This mesh is a rigid, stronger mesh.  It can still be cut with a stanley knife but not as easily as fibreglass mesh.

Sandfly Mesh

Sandfly mesh has a smaller aperture to ensure those tiny, pesty bugs stay out too!

DVA One Way Mesh

This is a privacy mesh used in a security window or door frame.  It is not considered to be a security product.  It is often used in conjunction with the diamond grille, or the colonial cast panel for one way vision on front screen doors.  It allows you to see out, but reduces the visibility into your house from the outside.

Diamond Grille

The Diamond Grille made of aluminium and is 7mm thick.  It is corrosion resistant.  The grille fits into a channel in the aluminium frame and is pop riveted at regular intervals to secure it in place.  It is normally used with fibre glass fly mesh for a value for money, reliable product.


INVISI-GARD uses a 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh that is pre-treated for corrosion resistance and then powder coated.  It is an attractive security solution that allows clear views and will last for years to come.

With a 1.6mm aperture and made of stainless steel, this product rates for bush fires.
