Having a toolbox at home will never hurt you, surely more than once you have an unexpected situation and you have not been able to solve it by not having tools at home right?

We have the habit of relating tools with being a handyman or a crack of the DIY, this does not have to be that way, since having a box with tools at home can get you out of more than one hurry.

¿How to organize a complete toolbox?

We are going to give a review of those tools that can always come to you well and it is not necessary to spend a pasture on them:

  • The toolbox: What nonsense is not? Well it is not, the main tool of our toolbox is the same box. The choice depends on the capacity you need and the tastes.

 

  • Hammer: it is a basic tool that can not be missing in our toolbox. A model of medium size will be great for us to do odd jobs like hanging a painting. It is advisable that the handle is made of wood because of the shock absorbing theme, and it is not necessary to hurt yourself either.

 

  • Screwdriver: either manual or electric, depending on our budget, and we must also take into account the model whether it is star, smooth blade or interchangeable tips.

 

  • Wrench: they can be fixed or adjustable, the latter is the most comfortable because it takes up less space in the toolbox and allows working with pieces of various sizes, just as the hammer looks for a medium weight.

 

  • Set of Allen keys: it seems that you will not use them in life, but in the end … the rear screw of some appliance, the saddle of the girl’s bike … there is always something that requires an allen key to open and tighten.

 

  • Cutter: it is a very practical and easy to use tool to make short and precise cuts.

 

  • Pliers: it is a multipurpose tool because it cuts, molds, bends, holds or even unscrews, therefore it is an essential basic tool.

 

  • Tape measure: also known as “meter”, if you need to know the measurements of anything like a piece of furniture or a window to place blinds or mosquito nets, its use is very basic, it does not take much information.

 

  • Insulating tape: you’re not going to fix anything with this and you know it … But it’s very useful for emergency fudge, so go to the box with the other tools.

 

  • Sierra: if you have to cut wood, plastic or metal, this tool will come from pearls.

 

  • Drill: it is essential since it will help us to hang a picture, a bookcase or piece of furniture; or even put a mosquito net, so do not miss out on yours and remember: Buy the bits!

 

These 11 tools can not be missing in your basic toolbox to fix and solve unforeseen problems in the house, there are a lot more tools to expand your range of solutions, but start with these and if you see that you get the taste and It’s good for you, because you can pass the level.

Maybe you’re good at DIY … and you did not know it.

 

For each type of door or window, walls of any texture or gaps with more or less uncertainties, Bug Stop has a solution in our extensive catalog of fly screens. Here you have all the possibilities so that you know all the alternatives that you have when deciding which fly screen to buy.

There are many types of houses, flats or apartments, for each type there are multiple types of doors and windows. It is very important to know the type of window or door when installing a fly screen. Each carpentry system leaves more gap or less to fit the head or profiles. Also according to the wall, if it is interior or exterior, it has a smoother texture or more or less straight angles.

WINDOWS

Let’s start with the windows, since by statistic most insects access through them in our homes, especially in cities and urbanizations.

The only fly screen that fits any window is the ELITE ROLLER FLY SCREEN, since it is designed only for that purpose. This product can be installed in any type of gap, window or wall.

  • Its cassette or box is 39mm which is the gap left by the European-style aluminum windows.
  • Accessories for fit gap or recess installation.
  • Up to 160 cm wide
  • Lid with telescopic function so that it presses against the wall.
  • Click clack system to open and close very easily the fly screen.
  • Front mesh speed regulator to adjust it.
  • Can be installed in roof or attic windows such as Velux.

In addition to all these advantages there is the ELITE roller fly screen without screws that incorporates accessories to avoid drilling and making holes. All in all, it is the most versatile fly screen on the market, and therefore it can be installed in all window types.

Continuing with the rollers, we have the VERTICAL FLYSCREEN, the most popular thanks to its functionality. It is practical to open and close, can be installed in any type of casement window or tilt-and-turn.

It is also important to know that if your sliding window does not have a rail where to place the sliding screen, you have to install a vertical roller blind. Pay attention to your sliding window type.

We continue with the traditional fly screen that adapts to any window, but without functions, which is the FIXED FLYSCREEN. Cut to size and fit, simple and elementary. For non-practicable windows, such as those with fences or forges, it is a very practical way to avoid insects and other animals.

For windows and sliding doors we have the sliding fly screens family, which we already offer you with the discount made in the profiles so that you only have to subtract the size of your window to the size printed on the box of the product that you have purchased. Remember also that to be able to mount a sliding insect screen, the window or the door must have a profile in which it is mounted, otherwise you will not be able to mount it.

A reduced version is also available, the MINI SLIDING FLYSCREEN, lighter and cheaper, to fit all pockets.

If flyscreens seem too basic to you and you are worried to break in a certain way with your style and aesthetics, the PLEATED FLYSCREEN is your model. It is very discreet, with black pleated fabric, and with the appearance of a curtain. Its cord mechanism is completely silent.

Finally, we have the TELESCOPIC FLYSCREEN, very practical since it does not require cutting or screwing. The telescopic flyscreen is only placed over the window and extends with its telescopic format until it fits the window and the blind. Although it is true that does not cover the entire window and requires to have the shutter down to cover the space.

DOORS

Our catalog also has different models for doors. In this case, with the exception of the sliding doors, you can choose any model for any type of door.

First we have the DOOR FLY SCREEN, hinged, folding and very easy to install. Its structure is resistant and can be mounted with its hinges in any gap. It is the ideal model for large gaps of exterior doors or gardens.

For interior doors, balconies or terraces, there is the ROLLER DOOR FLYSCREEN , which can be simple or double depending on the width of the door. It is very practical because, like the window roller, it occupies little space and is very resistant. The mesh is welded to the profile with nautical tape so it is very difficult to tear.

The higher quality door flyscreen, adaptable to any type of door is the AUTOMATIC PLEATED. It picks up itself with only one finger, it does not have any type of obstacle and it has a system to regulate the speed and the uncertainties in the wall angle. It can be installed in 10 minutes, since with some simple instructions it is the easiest to install.

For DIY lovers, crafts addicts and the “do it yourself” people, it is very important that any product that we buy is easy to assemble and fulfills its function in a practical way. In Bug Stop we work to make our fly screen handy and practical, both its installation and its use, with a quality so that its resistance is as great as possible.
Our philosophy is to be close and clear to our customers, like good DIY lovers. That is why we have designed our flyscreens to be assembled in a few steps, without needing technical knowledge in carpentry.

Bug Stop Flyscreeens are mainly made of following components:

  • Aluminium profiles;
  • Aluminium finishes such as powder coating, anodizing, sublimation and wood imitation films;
  • Plastic accessories;
  • Flyscreen mesh.

 

Bug-Stop provides flyscreen for doors and windows that are 100% made in Europe, from raw material. You are then assured that all Bug-Stop products strictly comply with all current quality certifications.

The aluminium profiles of Bug-Stop flyscreens are made of primary fusion 6063 T5 aluminium, to guarantee a high and stable quality level, as required by the UNE 38337-2001 norm. You will definitely note the difference of material between a Bug Sop flyscreen and any imported flyscreen. Bug Stop Flyscreen are highly resistant to torsion, traction and elongation, thus resisting to daily use, climate and impacts. Furthermore, it is important to know that the quality of finishes is directly related to the quality of aluminium.

Bug Stop Flyscreens’ powder coating complies with QUALICOAT. We strictly control our powder coating process and guaranty that all products are always powder coated with the same layer, which is always thicker than the minimum required by Qualicoat.

What is the impact for you as a consumer? We assure you that through the years, you Bug Stop flyscreen won’t suffer any discoloration, although it might be exposed to the sun or tough weather conditions. Bug Stop Flyscreen are definitely the most resistant to bumps and impacts, when compared to imported products.

The global aspect is also prefect, with no visible ruggedness, scratches, bubbles, stain or any other possible defect.

As far as resistance is concerned, Bug Stop flyscreens are highly resistant to humid atmospheres, natural aging, boiling water, etc…

Our powder coating provides a high level of resistance to cuts. So knowing that the flysceens can be adjusted in height and width, you have the guarantee that the profiles won’t be damaged after cutting them.

Regarding accessories, we manufacture them out of polyamide 6 (PA6). Many imported products use nylon accessories, reinforeced with PVC. But what are exactly the differences between a PA6 accessory and a Nylon or PVC one?

Polyamide PA6

  1. Up to 11 times as elastic as nylon;
  2. Resists to a range of temperature range up to 40º wider than nylon ;
  3. Twice as resistant to oxidation as nylon;
  4. 5 to 9 times as resistant to impact as nylon;
  5. 3 to 10 times as resistant to tension as nylon.

 

Although they may seem identical, PA6 and nylon accessories are quite different. PA6 is heavy-duty while nylon can suffer discoloration and break easily. The quality of accessories is highly important, knowing that they support the flyscreen. If they break when fitting or using them, the generated cost might be finally much more than the price of a flyscreen in case of accident. We recommend therefore to always use flyscreens manufactured with polyamide PA6.

The mesh is probably the most important part of a flyscreen knowing that without mesh, there is no flyscreen.   Bug Stop chooses the best mesh quality, OEKO-TEX CONFIDENCE TEXTILES approved. Oeko Tex Confidence Textiles is well known over the world as the independent label that certifies all meshes free from toxic substances.

Bug Stop flyscreens are also available with polyester anti-pollen mesh, very efficient to protect from mites, and allergens. Our anti-pollen mesh is certified by the ECARF (European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation), and is ideal to get protected from the most allergens such as Nettle, Ambrosia, Birch, Grass and Olive tree

 

Automatic folding system!

 

The Bug Stop automatic pleated door flyscreen is provided with an automatic folding system, which makes it totally different from other versions on the market which don’t fold automatically.

Therefore you don’t need any effort to open the flyscreen. It opens by itself by a single pressure.

 

To open the flyscreen, just proceed as follows:

When the flyscreen is shut, lift the handle with one finger. You will notice that an arrow is printed on the handle (that includes the safety lock).

Once the handle is lifted, the flyscreen opens by itself.

In case the flyscreen doesn’t open by itself, you always have the possibility to adjust the tension of each string, and then ensure that the flyscreen opens fully by itself.

You will therefore need to unlock the flyscreen mesh from the wall profile, by removing the flexible PVC mesh fastening clips (these clips are previously inserted in the wall profiles to lock the mesh).

 

You will then notice that each string is connected to two PVC parts that are located into the aluminium wall profile:

  • A string guide, through which the string is inserted;
  • A string fastening part to which the string is fastened.

It is important to make sure that each string is firmly tensioned in order for the flyscreen to open properly. Nevertheless the tension of the strings can’t be exaggerated either. In order to add (or release) tension to the string, just release the fixing screw of the string fastening part and move it upwards (or downwards).

Warning:

  • Make sure that the flyscreen is closed when you are working on this adjustment in order to avoid an exaggerated tension of the string
  • Make sure to apply the same tension on all the strings in order for the flyscreen to shut the same way (same speed) on both lower and top side.

The automatic pleated flyscreen for door brings also further advantages such as the possibility to recover an eventual unsquared recess at the bottom end of the flyscreen.

The pull profile (profile that is pulled horizontally to shut the flyscreen) includes indeed a mobile end cap at the bottom end. This bottom end cap is fixed to the profile thanks to an allen screw. Slightly release the screw in order to move the end cap upwards or downwards and fasten it at the right position.   Don’t forget to fasten the allen screw properly so that the end cap remains in a fixed position. This way you will make sure that:

  • The pull profile doesn’t scrape the bottom rail and that the flyscreen runs perfectly into the bottom guide;
  • The pull profile doesn’t escape from the bottom rail.

The handle and closing system can also be adjusted in height in order to fit precisely in the pull profile. You just have to release the screw of the handle (see handle that is fixed to the wall profile) and move the whole system (hook + handle) upwards or downwards until you reach the ideal height.

 

Finally it is important to remind the automatic pleated flyscreen is adjustable in height and width. Nevertheless it has a limit:

  • You can cut the product in height from the bottom side, bearing in mind that you can’t cut the product over the first string. Which means that no more than 10cm can be cut from the product in height.
  • As far as the adjustment in width is concerned, you first have to refer to the size that you have to cut in width. The total size that you can cut (width + height) is 50cm. This means that if you cut 10cm from the product in height, you can only cut 40cm from the product in height, or for example if you cut 47cm from the product in height, you can cut up to 47cm from the product in width.

 

To conclude, the Bug Stop Automatic Pleated Flyscreen is the reference on the market. It bring the elegancy and comfort of a 22mm pleated flyscreen for door at the third of its value on the professional market. Furthermore the automatic pleated flyscreen for door can be adjusted is height and width.
