Unika Retractable Mesh Window Fly Screen Kit
Finished Width in mm
Finished Height in mm
The kits contains everything you need to build and install your screen. The cassette and the side guides are made from high quality coated aluminium and can be easily cut to size.
The Unika retractable mesh fly screen is an unobtrusive way of keeping insects out. When your window is closed the screen can be discreetly retracted into the top cassette. When you want to open your window, you simply pull down the screen and lock it into position.
The standard kit comes with a spring mechanism which is inserted into the cassette to retract the screen.
Also available is a brake that ensures the screen retracts smoothly rather than snapping back under the tension of the spring.
Intermittent stops are available if you want to partially open the screen.
This screen will last for years to come and if the mesh gets damaged this can be replaced without replacing the full cassette.
+ Unika and Genius 46 Products +
+ Window Measurement +
Both Unika and Genius 46 retractable mesh screen cassettes, which house the mesh wound onto a barrel, can be face fitted to a window frame using "face fitting L-brackets" or can be hung from the underside of the recess using "M-clips"). Aesthetically using M-clips allows the blind to appear more integrated with the window frame. The weight of the cassette is also supported by the side-guides which can be face fitted or fixed to the side of the recess.
To obtain the width required measure the width in millimetres ensuring there is at least 30mm each side (60mm in total) to fix the Unika side guides or 40mm each side (80mm in total) to fit Genius 46. It is advisable to measure at the top middle and bottom of the window and to take the narrowest measurement.
Recess Fitting: measure from the underside of the reveal to the windowsill and subtract 5mm for the M-clip fitting.
Face Fitting: measure from the underside of the recess to the windowsill and subtract 15mm for the L-brackets.
We will cut the cassette and side guides to fit your exact measurements. This includes allowances for the spring mechanism in the cassette, the brackets an clips and catches at the bottom of the side guides.
Please state measurements as width x height.
+ Door Measurement +
Both Unika and Genius 46 retractable mesh screens for doors can be recess or face fitted.
For the height measure from the underside of the recess to the floor and subtract 5mm to ease fitting.
For the width measure from one side of the recess to the other. If face fitting using L-brackets subtract 15mm for a single door and 30mm for a double one.
The Unika cassette is 43mm deep, the top and bottom guides are 30mm each and the magnetic closing strip is 22mm deep. Please ensure the door frame is sufficiently wide to fix each of the elements too.
The Genius 46 cassette is 46mm deep, the bottom guide and magnetic closing strip (used for single doors only) are 22mm deep and the top guide 40mm deep. Please ensure the door frame is sufficiently wide to fix each of these elements too.
We will make your screen up to the exact measurements you provide. Please state measurements as width x height.
