Insect Screen Installation


1. Check that the frame, structure or wall to which the insect screen will be fastened is as square as possible, to eliminate twisting or shortage of fabric.

2. Metal parts should not touch the screen. In the summer, heat accumulates in metal parts, and might damage the plastic screen. Therefore, it is important to cover metal parts with white water based latex or white tape to protect the screen.

3. When you install the screen, keep the screen square and parallel to the sides of the greenhouse. This will keep the fibers of the screen parallel. If the fibers are not parallel to the greenhouse sides, the screen will be shortened in length and in width.

When you install several screens together which have not been stitched, you should connect the first screen to the sides fo the greenhouse, then, connect the second screen to the first one and to the greenhouse sides. Continue in that way until the entire greenhouse is covered.
