Aluminium and Wooden Screens
When it comes to choosing a screen there is usually a choice of either wooden frames or aluminium. Frames can be manufactured to bespoke sizes and shapes to suit a wide variety of applications.
Aluminium screens are by far the most popular screen we provide.
The frames are made from square section aluminium usually 30mm x 30mm or 40mm x 40mm (section sizes and wall thickness are appropriate for the overall frame size).
All have fully welded corners to ensure there are no gaps or pinholes for either water or solvent ingress.
The stability of aluminium also ensures that the frame will not warp and the welded joints will never open up or become loose.
They will last a lifetime and can be recovered time and time again.
Wooden screens are still very popular as they are relatively low cost and can be manufactured to bespoke sizes and shapes to suit a wide variety of applications.
All of our standard sized wooden frames are made using traditional mortice and tenon jointing with the mesh being fixed using a 2 part, ink and chemical resistant adhesive.
