Measuring Up For Flyscreens

To help you take the correct measurements and order items the correct size please follow the instructions below:
flyscreens flyscreens
Window Screens (Hinged and Liftout)
measuring up
  • Measure the aperture (i.e the air space) width and height.
  • Add a minimum of 20mm to the aperture width and height (to allow 10mm overlap all round ) and ensure you have a further 20mm of free space to fit the hinges and catch. You may increase the screen overlap if you have extra frame space available.
  • Special note ref. Omega hinged model Ensure extra 40mm of free space available on hinged side only & check existing window handle protrusion is no greater than 35mm deep from the face of the surrounding fixed frame.

Window Screens (Face Fitted, Top Mounted, Vertical Roller, Unika Model)
measuring up
  • Measure aperture (the opening) width as shown opposite including any bevelled edges of the surrounding fixed frame and add 60mm to this dimension to give the finished size required.
  • Measure the finished size height from the top of your window frame down to the window sill.
  • Note on high level windows with no window sill, measure height from top of existing frame to approximately half way down the lower horizontal frame face , allowing room for a 25mm high face fix false sill which we can supply.

Window Screens (Face Fitted, Top Mounted, Vertical Roller ) Model Genius
measuring up
  • Measure aperture (the opening) width as shown opposite including any bevelled edges of the surrounding fixed frame and add 80mm to this dimension to give the finished size required.
  • Measure the finished size height from the very top of your window frame , as shown on the diagram opposite, down to the window sill.
flyscreens
Window Screens (Reveal Fitted) measuring instructions for top mounted, retractable Vertical Roller screens or for model Eazy sliding panel screens
measuring up
  • Measure full width and height of reveal i.e. from inside edges of entire window (wall to wall) and (top down to window sill)
  • To ensure accuracy, measure across the width at top, middle and bottom in case window reveal is 'out of square' and choose the smallest measurement.
  • Do similar checks on height (window reveals can sometimes sag slightly in the middle) and choose smallest measurement.
flyscreens
Door Screens (Hinged, Face Fixed)
measuring up
  • Measure the aperture width and height.
  • Add a minimum of 20mm onto the aperture width and 10mm to the height, to create a minimum 10mm overlap onto the fixed surrounding frame.
  • On Upvc doors include a minimum 10mm additional overlap onto the bottom step frame.
  • Ensure you also have an additional minimum 25mm of space each side to fit the hinges and catch. If you have more frame space available you may wish to increase the overlap.
N.B. Ensure the existing door handle does not protrude beyond the face of the existing door frame. If it does, a sub-frame may be necessary, please seek further advice.

Door Screens (Retractable Roller)
Model Unika

side mounted, face fix

please note the small differences only in calculating the finished size width for single or double door screens :-

measuring up
  • Measure the aperture (the opening) width and height including any bevelled edges of the surrounding frame, regard these as part of the aperture.
  • Add 40mm to obtain the finished size width for a single door, 50mm only for a double door
  • Ideally add a minimum of 60mm to the height aperture. That is a minimum of 30mm above the aperture and 30mm below the aperture ( this assumes face fixing to an existing Upvc door with a suitably high upstand at floor level.
  • the overall finished size height of the roller unit can alternatively be taken from the top of the door frame face down to the floor surface ( or slightly above the floor if there is any type of infill at floor level that protrudes from the frame face and prevents a flush fit)
  • Do a physical double check at the doorway itself to ensure the finished size height will fit neatly.
  • Finished size height is critical. Width is not so, as can be easily reduced with a junior hacksaw if need be.
  • Key Point : you need to have a flat surface all round the door aperture to face fix this model

  • 2nd Key Point: if using a face fix kit, ensure you have 15mm of additional frame fixing space for the brackets at top, bottom & sides.

Door Screens (Retractable Roller, Model Genius)

top mounted, roll down, face fix

Suitable for some Balcony French Doors where entry and exit not repeatedly required.

measuring up
  • Measure the aperture (the opening) width and height including any bevelled edges of the surrounding frame, regard these as part of the aperture.
  • Add a minimum of 80mm to obtain the finished size width required.
  • to obtain finished size height, measure the height of the aperture and add 40mm for the cassette to face fix onto the door frame above the aperture.
  • Do a physical double check at the doorway itself to ensure the finished size height and width will fit neatly.
  • Finished size height is not critical if ordered oversize as this can be easily reduced with a junior hacksaw if need be.
  • 1st Key Point : you need to have a flat surface to top and sides of the door aperture to face fix this model
  • 2nd Key Point: if using a face fix kit, ensure you have 15mm of additional frame fixing space for the brackets at top & sides.

Door screens (chain-link + strip curtains)
measuring up
  • Finished size should allow a small overlap on each side of the door frame, approx 50mm each side if possible
  • If the doorway is recessed, utilise the recess width less 5mm tolerance
  • Height should be measured from the top of the door frame (or from where you wish it to hang) down to above the door step or floor (or if UPVC door, the upstand).
  • Screen should hang slightly above floor level (or the aperture on UPVC doors), approx. 25mm short, to allow for free movement of the screen.
flyscreens
Door Screens (Strip Curtains) made-to-measure
  • Measure the aperture (the opening) width and height.
  • Measure the flat facing frame space available at the sides and top.
  • Report all dimensions to us and we will calculate the best finished size.
flyscreens
Sliding screens and Roller Screens (Reveal Fitting)
  • Measure the width and height of the reveal in three different places.
  • Take the smallest sizes and subtract 3-5mm tolerance to allow for fitting.

Special Notes for DIY customers
Sliding panel screens must have level and square surfaces for successful fitting Maximum Ratio width to height 3 : 1

Roller screens are not recommended for industrial kitchen use unless in cold rooms or store rooms or other areas where the air is clean. Hygiene regulations require that flyscreens should be easily removed for cleaning .

See specifications for profile sizes to ensure selected models will fit, note especially existing window / door frame sizes to allow sufficient room for flyscreen fastenings i.e. hinges, magnetic catches, turn buttons etc. Please contact us if you need assistance.

Various obstructions to fitting flyscreens can arise .... e.g. protruding handles, window hardware, auto-door closers, alarm system control boxes, telephone points etc. etc. We have 18 years of experience in overcoming such challenges and we would be pleased to assist you.

If you have what seems like an insurmountable design or fitting problem, please help us to help you by providing as much information as possible , e.g.drawing / diagram with dimensions of the area to be screened plus, if possible, a photo by post or digital photo by email is always useful . Please contact us and we'll see what we can do.
