The installation of quality doors and windows in closed spaces is important to guarantee their acoustic and thermal insulation from the outside. This is important for the case in which doors and windows are always closed, but depending on the time of day or the season of the year, it is not always necessary to have these architectural elements closed.
How to protect spaces when doors and windows are opened? There are many elements that can invade the interior in an uncontrolled way. Insects in the first place, dirt or particles and dust and even debris such as plastics and the like. For these cases, there is a simple and very useful layer of protection known as mosquito netting. Now, let’s answer the following question:
A mosquito mesh is a type of mesh or fabric that is mainly used to prevent the passage of insects or any type of small winged animal into a residential, commercial or industrial space. It also serves to prevent the passage of polluting or unwanted external elements such as dry leaves, bags or any type of waste present outside.
In general, mosquito netting is commonly used in sliding door and window systems and is easy to install. Now, a question that may arise when talking about these meshes goes hand in hand with the visibility of the windows. Do they hinder visibility? The answer is no. These tissues are generally made with small diameter threads and this allows the field of vision to be unobstructed.
It is an ecological product that serves as a protection element without harming or affecting the environment. At the same time, it is resistant to UV rays, easy to clean and maintain, and thanks to the materials with which it is manufactured, it has a long useful life. Next, let’s break down the materials used in the manufacture of this type of protective mesh:
Being a mesh, the variety of materials used in its manufacture varies. Depending on the level of resistance and durability, the thickness of the threads, the ability to reject liquids and even the colors influence when choosing the appropriate materials. In this case, we are going to focus on the materials used to make the best type of mesh needed for doors and windows. The materials used are:
The material used as the core of the threads is one of the most widely used in the manufacture of resistant products. Polypropylene is a type of thermoplastic polymer from the polymerization of propylene. It is a material with a low density, excellent resistance to stress cracking, with use temperatures that do not exceed the boiling point of water and brittle at temperatures below the freezing point of water. For applications that require greater resistance, this material admits additional coatings of other types of polymers that guarantee a quality composite or semi-composite material.
To guarantee greater resistance and durability, the threads used in the mosquito nets have a uniform coating on the Polypropylene core. This coating is made of high quality polyethylene. This polymer is one of the most elemental and used in the world. This is mainly due to its low production cost and the fact that it is simple. Its properties against varied weather conditions, humidity and forces or efforts caused by impacts, provide a higher degree of resistance to any coated base polymer.
