Concertina Fly Screen

Our clients liked the idea of concertina fly screens to help control insect ingress and provide ventilation in their stylish Greenwich Peninsula apartment. The development is part of a regeneration project contained by 1.5 miles of Thames riverside and is made up of stunning apartment buildings and green spaces framed by the unmistakable silhouette of the O2 and Emirates cable car.

Apartment living in this area of London brings many advantages; each block is beautifully designed with stunning vistas and easy access to everything our capital has to offer. Our clients wanted to make the most of their ninth-floor west-facing aspect, better control ventilation and temperature, and manage insect intrusion; a concertina fly screen was just what they needed

“The concertina fly screens are a great solution, very robust. They work really well on warm days by providing insect-free ventilation.”

The beautiful apartment has a generous balcony with large sliding doors, perfect for easy screening with a pleated screen door. After discussion with our technical team, four Distinction screens were specified; two for the main living area and two for the bedrooms. 

The bedroom window screens were fitted internally to allow for in-swing windows. We crafted custom-made floor thresholds to allow for carpeting and finished the frames in matt off-white to match the internal frames exactly.

The larger living area screens were fitted to accommodate internal door handles and finished in anodized metallic bronze to match the exterior frames. In line with the building’s freehold agreement, the concertina fly screens are invisible when viewed from the outside.
