Different types of mosquito nets (mesh) for doors & windows./ Various types of mosquito nets for openings.

Let us go through the different types of mosquito nets used at the door & window openings.

A). Based on the operating style:

1. Detachable mosquito net:

These nets can be easily removed whenever necessary for cleaning & washing purposes. They contain a hook & loop system of velcro strips at the periphery of the net.

 Detachable nets are widely used due to their simplicity, low price,  & easily removable option.

 2. Rolling mosquito net:

The nets have aluminum, UPVC, or FRP frames to slide over the track. The mosquito net frame moves up & down vertically over the track to the required height.

Other than windows, these nets can be used for larger openings to protect against insects & mosquitoes.

3. Fixed mosquito net:

The mosquito net is made by using MS frames to maintain stability & required dimension. These nets are fixed to the windows by screwing them at regular intervals.

Usually, these nets are installed at the exterior side of the window so that they won't disturb the opening & closing operation of the window.

4. Pleated thread mosquito net:

These nets provide horizontal sideway movements for the operation. They are made of strong polyester thread with a filament core to work on tension-based technology. 

They can sustain higher wind pressure. Pleated thread nets are ideal for larger openings such as balconies, full-width windows, and doors.

Other than barring insects, this system also filters dust particles to a certain degree.

5. Sliding mosquito net:

Instead of glass, a mosquito net is fixed in the aluminum sliding windows. Usually, 3-track sliding windows are made having a net embedded in any one or two tracks.

When the windows are fully closed, this net system helps to block the insects but allows the partial flow of air through them.

For the independent operation of sliding nets, the system is installed separately over two tracks adjacent to the aluminum sliding windows, having glassed frames.

6. Hinged mosquito net:

The net is installed within the hinged metal frames. In such window opening types, the hinged frames are provided at the exterior side.

 The inner part contains sliding windows having MS grills located at the center. Closing the hinged net frame blocks the insects but allows the air within the room. To prevent the entry of air, the inner sliding window is closed to the required level.


7. Magnetic mosquito net:

They have magnetic strips lined at the joining edges of the two parts of the net. These strips open with a gentle touch & close automatically due to magnets.

Velcro tape is used at the door frame boundaries to hold them in position. They block insects & mosquitoes but allow the cool breeze through the openings.

8. Barrier-free mosquito net:

The mosquito net without obstruction at the floor level is known as a barrier-free net. The mesh moves over the guide strip with the help of the caterpillar chain.
This guide strip prevents accidental falling of people due to obstruction at floor level.

B). Based on materials:

1. Fiberglass mosquito mesh:

They are corrosion-resistant materials having the ability to withstand high temperatures. The fiberglass mesh can be cut easily to the required size for installation. They come in a roll of various lengths.

When compared to metallic mesh, they are cheaper & are widely used. 

2. Aluminum mosquito mesh:

They fit stiffly & evenly within the frame without any folds in between. Usually, they are used in aluminum framed mosquito nets to provide an architectural look.

Aluminum is an anti-rust, lightweight material having a longer life span. 


3. Stainless steel mosquito mesh:

Stainless steel nets are used to provide a richer look to the openings. They are tough & strong, which gives extra security to the windows.

They are a little expensive but have a longer shelf life. 

4. Plastic mosquito mesh:

Plastic mesh is the cheapest version in all types of available materials. They cut & form a hole easily by the accidental touch of sharp items.
As they melt at higher temperatures, plastic mesh is not suitable for kitchens & fire-prone areas.
