Bug Out is a concept designed, sourced and perfected, by partners Liesel and Richard, resulting in a cost effective and easy to install DIY window insect screen.
DIY kits are comprised of parts that can be assembled and installed within minutes. Using top quality Fibreglass mesh (ISO9001 standard of approval), pvc strips, pvc corner clips and magnetic strips with high-quality double-sided tape, all rolled and packaged together with instructions. This provides a much sought after solution to keeping all insects outdoors, night and day.
The double-sided tape alone has been specifically created to withstand intense heat, 200 degrees celcius over a short term and 100 degrees celcius temperature over a long period of time. The tape also cures 2 weeks after installation and increases in strength.
We currently produce 7 standard sizes, the smallest size for air vents (most mosquitos and spiders use this entrance). These sizes match standard window sizes made for SA. There are other window sizes, especially in older houses and this is not a problem. Once you’ve measured the height and width of your window frame, search for our kit size that is applicable, eg. if your window measures 500mm x 300mm, select our kit size 600mm x 350mm, then using a pair of scissors simply cut the pvc and magnetic strips to the correct size.
Place corner clips front part facing down, and slide first part of pvc strips into corners forming a window frame. Lay the mesh over the frame, clip the second part of the pvc strip, which is magnetised, into the first pvc part (mesh is ‘sandwiched’ between these 2 parts). Cut excess mesh off around the borders.
Finally place magnetic strip onto magnetised pvc strip, peel transparency off double-sided tape, and adhere to window frame. Pull corners to separate the magnets to open and close window. If clients have window sizes outside our standard sizes, or burglar bars, contact us as we will supply the solutions.
