Powder Coating Stops Aluminium from Rusting

Powder coating is an environmentally friendly dry paint finish that protects our aluminium screen frames from corroding and rusting. Powder coated aluminium requires no maintenance and gives many years of worry free performance. In the tough UAE environment, powder coating is the preferred choice to protect most metal based products.

How does powder coating work?

The final finish of a powder coated piece of metal looks like a traditional paint finish but is actually a dry paint process. Finely ground particles of paint powder are electrically sprayed onto the surface of the metal to be painted. An electrical charge is run through the metal and the powder heats up and bonds with the metal surface. This results in a durable, smooth and quality finish that not only protects the metal, but looks great too. Powder coating can be done in a wide variety of colours so villa owners can perfectly match any aluminium profile with their existing home colour scheme.

Advantages of powder coating

There are many advantages to powder coating which is used on our aluminium fly screen and security screen frames here in Dubai. These include the following:

  • Powder coating results in a much thicker and denser protective painted finish than traditional painting providing a longer life.
  • It is more durable than traditional wet coated paint as the bonding is stronger.
  • Environmentally friendly as the powder does not contain any solvents like traditional wet paints.
  • Cost effective as it is more efficient to manufacture and apply.
  • Maintenance free as no special cleaning of the metal surface is required. With aluminium powder coating finishes it can simply be wiped down as required to keep it clean and looking great.
  • Available in a large variety of colours. In the UAE the Jotun range of colours are the most commonly used powder and match most villas in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and across the UAE.

Disadvantages of powder coating

  • Can be difficult to touch up if damaged. Due to the high quality and thickness of the powder paint, a painted repair can be tricky to perform.
  • Can be difficult to achieve a thin coat.
  • Takes time as the application must be complete within a dedicated powder coating facility.

Why use aluminium frames

In conclusion, powder coating of aluminium is considered the best all round method of protecting our insect screen frames. They remain looking great even when exposed to harsh UV rays for decades and require very little maintenance.  Easy to clean and durable there is no better solution to your security screens or fly screens in the UAE.

Trackless Pleated Screens

Trackless screens have arrived!

We’re excited that after one year of development we now have this unique ‘trackless’ screen available in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and across the UAE. This screen takes all the advantages of our pleated screen and adds a new design twist that sees the bottom rail removed.

This allows the screen to be placed across doors that have no track and removes any ugly bottom rail that traditional pleated screens have. The other advantage of these great screens is that they can be joined together to cover very wide openings. These are perfect for the wide openings found on bi-fold doors and large stacking doors.

FlyScreens.ae is the only company in the UAE to offer this extendable pleated screen option. Please feel free to contact us if you’d like a free measure and quote or to discuss options with one of our experienced team members.

Mosquitos in Dubai are smart

Those little buggers LOVE OUR SWEAT AND BREATH!

Mosquitos in Dubai are smart. They wait until you’re almost asleep and then attack in waves. Right at the moment when you’re about to doze off.

It’s then that you hear that buzz.

It comes and goes like a torture instrument designed to send you crazy. Trying to remain positive during these kamikaze attacks I think they were designed to teach us mental toughness.

Mosquitos are attracted to the chemical octenol which is found in our breath and sweat. They’re also attracted to the heat that surrounds our bodies in the hot UAE environment. These blood suckers can travel 3km a day and have been responsible for spreading diseases around the world.

And did you know it’s only the female mosquito that bites. They need blood to fuel themselves before laying their eggs.

Stopping them from attacking us is a full time pursuit. There is no guarantee of victory over these flying torture devices. Of course mosquito repellent is an option but those chemicals can be harsh on your skin. The only advice we can give is to hold your breath, don’t sweat and don’t increase your body temperature!Sounds feasible, right?

Customer feedback counts!

Over the past year we’ve had many UAE residents request a good quality but affordable fly and insect screen. We initially only offered a premium security screen however we’ve expanded our product line to include the pleated screen.

This screen is gaining great popularity in Europe and across Australasia and we’ve decided to offer it here in Dubai. This website is the result of bringing this new pleated screen to the UAE market.

We’ll continue to add helpful information to this section of the website to assist you choosing which screen to install on your villa.
