Steps

***IMPORTANT – MEASURE YOUR RECESS BEFORE YOU ORDER!***

11 mm frames only fit recesses wider than 11 mm, SW will not replace screens ordered with the incorrect frame as they must be completely remade with all new stock.

Recess fix: We have 11mm and 9mm thick flyscreen frames. The standard security window screen is 11mm.
   
You must ensure that the window has enough recess for the screens to fit into. The best way is to measure the existing screen and use the sizes for the new screens. If you need help measuring screens for a recess fix, you can contact us.

Face fix: You can fit the screen to to the face of the window frame either internally or externally by drilling through the frame of the window surround, and screwing or riveting in place. Great care must be given to not interfere with the operation of the window’s action, E.g. Window spirals etc.

METHOD

1. How to measure an existing screen:

If you have existing screens and they are a good fit, then the easiest way to measure for new ones is to remeasure your old ones. Please make sure the recess is at least 11mm wide.

Note: When measuring existing screen, you must not take measurements from the centre in case the screen is bowed. You need to measure the side of the screen to obtain an accurate read.

Screen Width: Measure from the outer edge of the frame top and bottom, record the smallest measurement. Note: If there is a variation in two reads, the maximum variation cannot be more than 4mm, if the variation is greater contact us to discuss solutions.

Screen Height: Measure the height left and right, record the smallest measurement.

Recess Width: Using a solid ruler measure the width of your recess, advise us when placing your order if your recess width is other than 11 mm.

2. How to measure for a new screen (face fixed):

Note: The safest method of measuring is to fit the screen to the face of the window and this is sometimes the only option. You would then drill through the frame of the window surround, and screw or rivet in place.

Screen Width: Measure the recess top and bottom, record the smallest measurement.

Screen Height: Measure the height left and right, record the smallest measurement.

3. How to measure for a new screen (recess fixed): 

Screen Width: Measure inside recess of windows where screen will be located, top and bottom then deduct 2-3 mm to allow fitting clearance and record the smallest measurement.

Screen Height: Measure inside recess of windows where screen will be located, left and right then deduct 2-3 mm to allow fitting clearance and record the smallest measurement.

Recess Width: Using a solid ruler measure the width of your recess, advise us when placing your order if your recess width is other than 11 mm.

Recess Depth/Width: Using a solid ruler measure the depth of your recess, advise us when placing your order if your recess depth is other than 11 mm.
