Selecting Screens

Types of Screens

It’s a welcome relief inviting fresh air into your home, but without screens, you’re also attracting unwelcome insects. With so many options, it can be difficult to know which types of screens you should choose. So to help you, here’s a run-down of the different types of screens available.

Insect Screens

Insect screens are the lowest-cost screening solution available.

They let the breeze in, but keep flies, mosquitoes, and other unwanted insects out.

At Bradnam’s, you can choose insect screens made from fibreglass mesh or tougher aluminium mesh that sits in a slimline aluminium frame. The frame is available in the same colour as our aluminium windows and doors. This will give you an aesthetically symmetrical look inside and out.

Insect screens minimally impact your views. The aluminium mesh option is also suitable for use in bushfire prone areas. You can also get a finer micro mesh that keeps out sand flies.

It’s important to remember that insect screens are only for keeping insects out. They’re not designed to keep out determined human intruders.

Safety Screens

Safety screens combine the fibreglass mesh of insect screens with a powder-coated diamond grill.

The screens’ aluminium frames and grill are available in matching Bradnam’s shades.

Like insect screens, diamond grill screens are very affordable, and they help keep out unwanted bugs. The diamond grill also helps to deter intruders (although it’s not intruder-proof). From a compliance perspective, diamond grill screens are an ideal solution for second-storey windows as they help prevent a child or adult from falling through.

Ali-View Security Screens™

Ali-View™ is a Bradnam’s trademarked screening product.

The mesh used to create our Ali-View screens is manufactured from structural alloy, which is stronger than standard aluminium. This allows these screens to pass several Australian standard security tests.

The clean, Ali-View frames will match your window and door frames, and there are no unsightly screws or rivets in view. They help to deter unwanted intruders from gaining access to your home.

If safety and security are your top priorities, our Stainless View™ security screens are the screens you’re looking for.

Stainless View™ Security Screens

Stainless View™ screens give you safety with a view.

The superior strength and durability of their marine grade stainless steel mesh combined with appropriate locks. This means that they meet every Australian standard for security screens, including knife sheer, impact, anti-jemmy, pull, and probe tests.

In addition to keeping out would-be intruders, these screens: –

– are suitable for bushfire zones,
– keep out insects and other vermin
– provide maximum ventilation
– offer clean frames that are screw and rivet free
– don’t interrupt your view

Screening at Bradnam’s

At Bradnam’s, almost all our window and door products come with a built-in screen track.

This means that even if you’ve had your windows and doors for many years, we may be able to provide a screening solution for you.

Alternatively, if you’re building or renovating now, your screens can be installed as soon as your Bradnam’s windows and doors have been installed and cleaned.
