This article is devoted to the simplest devices that allow to protect the living quarters from the penetration of mosquitoes and other annoying insects - mosquito nets.
Rolled mosquito nets
By their design and mounting method, the mosquito nets are divided into the following groups:
Mosquito nets do not need special care and are easy to install in window and doorways. Their maintenance, which is carried out no more than twice a year, is often reduced to a simple washing of the cloth with a mild detergent solution.
Why do you need a mosquito net
A typical mosquito net is a classic aluminum profile with a fine-meshed web of inconspicuous color stretched over it. With regard to the functional purpose of the mosquito cloth, then with the help of this simple device you can:
Installation of the finished mosquito net will not require any special skills and will cost much less than a house call.
Installation of fasteners
installation location depends on where you are going to mount it. To fasten this device on a modern plastic window, for example, you will need a set of mounting brackets and several screws.
In the absence of complete fasteners in the kit, the installation can be done in the following sequence:
Preparing a mosquito for installation
Installation of mosquito nets in balcony openings is done by simply hanging them on the hinges and installing a special holding hardware, designed in the form of magnetic clips. First, the marking of the installation locations of the loops and their fastening using self-tapping screws is done, and then (after hanging the frame and fitting), fixing magnets are installed in the right places.
Often there are situations in which there is a need to place an order for the manufacture of a new mosquito cloth (in case of wear or damage to the old frame, for example). In this case, you will need to make all installation measurements yourself. To do this, you need to remove the dimensions of the open window opening (its width and height) and add 2 cm and 3 cm to the results, respectively.
Grid to the balcony
After completing the order, you should receive from the contractor a ready-made frame with mosquito mesh complete with a set of fasteners for it. This kit should include two pairs of fasteners mounted on the upper and lower edges of the structure. When installing, try not to confuse the upper and lower sets of fasteners, while paying attention to the fact that the upper strips are much wider than the lower ones.
Installing a mosquitoes
If there is a window The frame of the elements of the internal fastening is taken up by the net frame of the side faces (or special handles) and is simply wound up with its upper edge under the brackets with the simultaneous lifting of the entire frame up to the stop. Then the lower edge of the mesh is inserted into the fastening elements located in the lower part of the structure, after which the frame is simply lowered into them and aligned to the place of installation.
