Your home. A place of refuge and solace. A place for you and your family to come to, to get away from the threats and dangers of the outside world. But is your home as safe and enjoyable as it could be? Here are five benefits you can expect when installing Flyscreens in your home.

1. Health and Hygiene

Flyscreens keep all annoying and the ‘not so neat’ insects out of the house. Flies visit dumps, and drains, and feed on things that we wouldn’t. They also regurgitate and excrete wherever they come to rest. Flies are therefore strongly suspected of transmitting at least 65 diseases to humans, including typhoid fever, cholera and tuberculosis. Flyscreens are an effective pest management tool to keep all unwanted insects out.

2. Safety and Security

Insects are not the only pests we need to keep out our home. In 2016, there were 250 606 reported instances of burglaries at residential homes in South Africa. Flyscreens add a needed extra line of defence to your home. They do that by adding an extra level of defence to break through, and by reducing the visibility of the contents of your home from the outside.

Visibility from the inside out is not hindered though, so you are still able to watch the kids playing outside on a warm summers day or just enjoy the beautiful view your home offers. Flyscreens can also be used to keep the kids inside if that is preferred. Animals can be managed the same way.

3. Energy Efficiency

Let’s face it. The novelty of a candlelit dinner dies off quite quickly, which is why we all look for ways to save electricity. Flyscreens allow you to manage the temperature of your home naturally by enabling you to open doors but still maintain a degree of privacy and security. Opened doors also allow more light in your home, which means more natural light and less use of artificial light needed in the day. Flyscreens don’t cost you more and don’t cost the environment anything.

4. Style

Flyscreens are not purely functional. Their colour variety allows you to match the perfect flyscreens to inject style into our home.

5. Safe Investment

Flyscreens are strong and durable, which makes them a valuable investment for your home.

Flyscreens provide so much value to the quality of life at home that it makes it an investment worth making.
