Step-by-step installation guide

You don't need to be an expert in this type of work to install your magnetic mosquito nets correctly. Following these tips you will be able to install them easily and without help:

  • Measuring the windowBefore you begin, measure your window frame to determine the exact size screen you need. Be sure to measure both the width and height of the interior frame where the screen will be placed.
  • Cut the mesh to sizeOnce you have the measurements, cut the screen mesh according to the size of your window. It is recommended to add a few extra inches on each side to ensure complete coverage and allow for adjustments during installation.
  • Preparing the window frameClean the window frame to remove dust, dirt or grease. A clean surface ensures better adhesion of the magnetic tape or magnets.
  • Place the magnetic tape or magnets on the frame.If your screen uses magnetic tape, remove the protective paper and stick the tape around the window frame, pressing firmly to ensure good adhesion. If you use magnets, place them on the corners or edges of the frame according to the design of your screen.
  • Attach the mesh to the magnetic tape or magnets.Start at one corner and adjust the mesh to the magnetic tape or bring the magnets on the mesh closer to the magnets on the frame. Make sure the screen is taut and wrinkle-free for effective protection and aesthetic appearance.
  • Trim excess meshIf after installing the screen you notice that there is excess mesh, use a pair of scissors to carefully trim the excess. This should be done delicately to avoid over-cutting and leaving unprotected spaces.
  • Verify the installationOnce the insect screen is in place, check that it is securely fastened to the entire frame and that there are no gaps where insects can enter. Make sure that the window can be opened and closed without problems.
  • Final adjustmentsIf necessary, make final adjustments to improve the tension of the mesh or the position of the magnets or magnetic tape. Once you are satisfied with the installation, your magnetic insect screen is ready to protect your home from insects.

Maintenance and care

In order for you to get the most out of your magnetic mosquito nets and for them to be able to protect your home for a long time, here are some maintenance and care tips:

  • Regular cleaning of the screenOver time, the screen mesh can accumulate dust, pollen and other debris. To clean, gently peel the screen away from the window frame and use a soft cloth or soft bristle brush. You can clean it with warm soapy water, making sure to rinse it thoroughly and let it dry completely before replacing it.
  • Magnet and magnetic tape careMagnets and magnetic tape should be kept clean and free of debris to ensure good adhesion. Clean these parts with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Avoid using aggressive chemicals that may damage the magnetic material.
  • Damage inspectionPeriodically check the screen for rips, holes or tears. A small tear can allow insects to enter, so it is important to repair or replace the screen if damage is detected.
  • Off-season storageIf you decide to remove the mosquito net during the colder months or when it is not needed, store it properly to prolong its life. Clean the mosquito net as above, let it dry completely and roll it up gently without folding it. Store the net in a dry place protected from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.
  • Fixation reviewCheck the net's attachment at the beginning of each season to make sure it is still strong and effective. If necessary, replace the magnetic tape or magnets to keep the net firmly in place.
