Tips for Getting an Aluminium or Stainless Steel Fly Screen

Protecting your home from insects can be necessary, especially when the weather gets hot or muggy. Australia is home to some scary pests, and if you don't take the time to insulate your house from such intruders they can surprise you in nasty ways. One of the best ways to keep flying pests out of your space is by putting up fly screen. A good quality fly screen can prevent flies and other winged insects from entering your home through an open door or window, which both provide convenient points of access to your home otherwise. It’s important to get the right type of fly screen for your home, though. A fly screen can be vulnerable to bushfires depending on the material it is made from, which means that you may need to use a particular type if you live in a fire-prone area. To make sure your fly screen complies with the regulations of your area, always do some research to make sure you're getting the right one before you make the purchase.

So what makes a fly screen safe? There are a couple of easy ways. The biggest thing, of course, is to look at the material from which the fly screen is manufactured. You'll want to use either an aluminium fly screen or a stainless steel fly screen, depending on the area you live in, and it's BAL (Bushfire Attack Level). You can easily pick up fly screens of either type from Trade Warehouse, a seven-year-old company that ships trade and DIY products including fly screens across Australia at highly competitive prices.

When to Use an Aluminium Fly Screen

If the BAL in your area is at 29, you’ll need an aluminium fly screen. They provide extra protection and are less vulnerable to bushfires than regular fibreglass fly screens, without sacrificing visibility. Trade Warehouse sells aluminium fly screen in full rolls, at highly competitive prices. This is a useful option when you need to cover significant areas with fly screen in regions with high susceptibility to bushfires.

When to Use a Stainless Steel Fly Screen

If you live in an area with BAL 40 or BAL FZ, you’ll need something stronger than aluminium for your fly screen. In fact, you’ll need to use stainless steel, which is the only material suitable for areas of very high or extreme bushfire risk. Once again, Trade Warehouse can help you here.
