Against the backdrop of rising temperatures across the country, designers and specifiers are focusing on creating sustainable buildings with features that are appropriate for the surrounding environment and weather conditions. By providing airflow and protection against pests, insect screening can contribute to energy-efficient and healthy Australian homes. Leading retractable wide-span models offer even greater advantages in terms of design flexibility and aesthetic value.

'Sustainable screening: The benefits of effective insect screen specification' takes a close look at the design benefits of insect screening, with a focus on retractable screens. First, we discuss the key considerations when designing for Australia’s harsh climate. We then discuss the benefits of insect screening – from temperature regulation and natural light filtering to improved health outcomes and aesthetic appeal. We then briefly outline the key considerations when specifying insect screening solutions. Finally, we present an innovative, retractable wide-span insect screen system featuring an integrated frame that can be completely built into the wall cavity.
