Attaching a fly screen with magnetic tape
If you don’t have a metal surface for the fly screen magnets to adhere to, then magnetic adhesive tape is the perfect solution. The video will show you step by step how to mount a fly screen using only magnetic adhesive tape. You can find detailed information in the customer project linked below.
What do I need to keep in mind when mounting it with magnetic tape?It is important to make sure that the magnetic adhesive tape is properly aligned. Tape strips with only a minimal offset are positioned in the correct direction on top of each other. If the offset is noticeably larger, you should turn one of the tapes by 180 degrees. This will ensure an optimal adhesive force.
You can find additional information on the properties of magnetic adhesive tapes on our FAQ page "How can you combine two self-adhesive magnetic tapes?".
Fastening fly screen with magnets
Neodymium magnets are another helpful accessory for attaching a fly screen. First, build a wooden or plastic frame and attach the fly screen to it. Next, glue the magnets to the fly screen frame and the window frame. Allow sufficient time for the glue to dry before mounting the wooden frame on the window.
