Flyscreen FAQ

Q. Do SoftScreens shrink or stretch when in position?
A. SoftScreens are made with PVC coated fibreglass mesh which will not rust, rot, shrink or stain.
Q. Are the screens fixed to the frame with magnets?
A. SoftScreens use VELCRO® brand hook & loop tape to fix the screens and this is non-snag with clothing. We believe credit/debit cards and certain electronic components could be corrupted in the vicinity of a magnetic field.

Q. I’m not great at doing practical things, are the screens hard to put up?
A. SoftScreens come in a parcel with all components including cleaning pads and very easy to follow instructions. Our fixing system was thought up to be easy to use for everyone.
Q. I’m renting my place, can I remove the adhesive backed tape from the window frame when I have to move?
