Truths about wire screen installation
โดย admin     2019-01-24



Though you may need air ventilation and air flows for your houses, you also need to concern about those disturbing insects and mosquitos that normally come with the air. Due to this reason, wire screens are an option that most families choose to use with their doors or windows. Before purchasing one, there are several secrets behind those wire screens that we want you to know of, starting from the beginning until the end, for better quality of daily life in your own house.

Choose your wire screens based on their functions

A function that most of you are most familiar to is that it is an additional part to doors and windows’ frames. The functions of the door screens are further categorized into sliding panels and swing panels, and the doors can be opaque or made of glass. Each category is based on the available usage space, whether which style of the panels is best suitable. For example, the main swing opaque door may be used with a sliding door screen only if there are available spaces left at both sides of the door. This sliding panel even more increases functional space for a certain room than a use of a swing door screen, which requires additional space for the swing.

Besides, there are also other types of screens that were created to improve the weakness of conventional wire screens for more convenient use and look. For example, a usage of pleated insect screens, which are retractable into the accordion door frame in order to be opened widely and not block the way while being used. Another type is a door screen that can be rolled up like a rolling curtain. That is to say, when it is not being used, you can roll it up and hide it in the frame. For a use with a slide rail, the screen can be rolled away together with the curtain if it is installed to a door frame. This rolling type of door screens even helps increase durability of usage.

Choose the material based on the budget

Another factor that absolutely has an effect to decision making in choosing a wire screen is pricing, because these wire screens are made of different materials that come with different benefits. Conventional wire screens are made of aluminum, which allows air ventilation, but is quite fragile after being in contact with humidity for a period of time.

Fiber screens have been created to improve such weakness of the aluminum ones. They will not get rusted and reflective of light. However, it may also be fragile after being used for a while or may be misshaped if it is hit by something directly. Another type of wire screen is uPVC, which is made of plastic, improving its quality with a property of ultraviolet protection and moist control, leading to relaxing atmosphere and reduction of air-conditioning usage.

Another one is nylon, which is actually different from the above. Though it is durable, its opaqueness seems to be an obstacle to the air flow, resulting in insufficient air ventilation. Moreover, there is also a security wire screen made of stainless steel of which the key feature is its durability. It can be installed to any house located beachfront as it’s vulnerable to salt spray.

Wire screen installations, interior or exterior?

Either interior or exterior, both installations have their own strengths and weaknesses. In Thailand, most of the houses installed it from the inside as doors and windows, normally, can be opened by pushing. Also, the wire screens we use are made of aluminum, which is thin and easily gets broken. That’s why we prefer installing them from the inside rather than outside—it is easy for maintenance and changes.

Anyway, if we decide to use a screen that is made of strong materials since the beginning, installation from the outside is highly recommended, because, usually, the air would bring dusts from outside into inside of the house. So, the air will be filtered by the screen first, and when we close the door or window, the dusts will still be outside, and the inside will be clean without those things that can cause allergy.

Another strength of exterior installation is that its usage period will be extended, because it will be no need to be opened and closed every single time we need to open and close the door or window, as, sometimes, we may accidentally misshape it as well.

Another thing is about the cleanliness. As all the dusts have been filtered from outside, it is easy to be cleaned. Even the rains can help clean it. For those who concern about its strength during storms, please note that the screen frame is completely protective and anti-falling, so it will be strongly fixed to the position where it was previously placed.

According to what we have told you above, we hope that it would be beneficial to you in choosing a wire screen for your house next time, no matters it is about the functions, materials, or installation methods. The last point may be unfamiliar to the Thai people, but the quality standards of each material will answer your questions and best fulfill your requirements by itself.
