There is no preferable time of year to install mosquito nets in your home or workplace. Most often, the need arises between late spring and summer, when the insects begin to proliferate.

The advice that we are going to give you in this article is to carry out these operations during the cold season, so that you have more time to choose precisely the products to install, so know everything about mosquito nets for windows.

What to consider before choosing mosquito nets

First of all, you have to take the measurements of the rooms in which you intend to install mosquito nets. Depending on the type of window and the space available, you can choose the most suitable model.

And not only that. Have you thought about what function the individual mosquito net should have?

It is not an obvious question, since mosquito nets not only protect us from insects, but also from rodents and pollen at the same time.

In some cases they have to be resistant to the paws and teeth of pets, in others they can provide a darkening of the room.

Depending on your specific needs, you will have to choose between the different models of mosquito nets that are currently on the market.

Types of mosquito nets for windows

The mechanics of the types of retractable mosquito nets for windows are mainly divided into two versions: with return spring or with chain.

What are the differences? First of all, the spring makes it possible to roll up the net quickly. The presence of a brake – an optional accessory for the models offered by the most reliable manufacturers – allows a moderate rise to safeguard the insect screen mechanism over time.

The chain allows the screen to be raised and lowered manually, allowing you to keep it ajar for window sill operations or opening / closing window frames.

There are also specific variants, starting with the “windproof” model, the “brush” model, up to the “pleated” mosquito nets (with buttons) and the “fixed frame” mosquito nets, used mainly for the windows of the taverns or near the bars.

Difference between anti-wind mosquito nets and brush ones

Windproof mosquito nets

In the case of wind resistant mosquito nets, there is a welded strip on the side edges with small attached plastic buttons, which prevent the net from slipping out of the side guides in windy conditions.

This ensures that the net is always taut, even in windy conditions, and therefore offers greater resistance, especially in bad weather.

The presence of welded straps also prevents small tears or breaks that can occur as a result of wear and tear.

However, in the event of an accidental impact, the net runs the risk of tearing and it will be necessary to replace it with a new one.

Brush mosquito net

In the case of brush mosquito nets, the net can be pulled out and retracted into the guide rails, which contain a double plastic brush to keep the net taut on the guide rails.

In case of strong winds, the net can go out, but the advantage of this model is that in case of accidental impact, the net can go out and return to the guides without any problem, without breaking.
