Sleep Peacefully With Corner Star Mosquito Nets For Your Windows

Regain quality sleep with something as simple as a mosquito net for your windows to keep those pesky critters out! Corner Star are here to help.

South Africa boasts breathtaking landscapes, diverse cultures, and vibrant cities. But for many, the idyllic picture is marred by a persistent buzzing menace – mosquitos. These tiny insects disrupt sleep with their irritating bites but can also pose a health risk, transmitting diseases like malaria and dengue fever.


While traditional mosquito nets draped over beds offer some protection, they can be cumbersome and impractical. This is where mosquito nets for windows step in, providing a convenient and effective solution for keeping these unwanted guests at bay.

Why Choose a Mosquito Net for Windows?

Compared to traditional mosquito nets, window nets offer several advantages:

  • Improved Airflow: Unlike bed nets, mosquito nets for windows, also called Insect Screens allow for better air circulation, preventing rooms from becoming stuffy and hot, especially during South Africa’s warm summers.
  • Unobstructed Views: Window nets maintain your connection with the outdoors, allowing you to enjoy the scenery without the worry of mosquitos.
  • Enhanced Security: Some window nets like Security Screens, come with a strong mesh that can deter insects while adding an extra layer of security against unwanted entry.
  • Easy Maintenance: Window nets are generally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall.
  • Aesthetics: Modern window nets are designed to blend seamlessly with your windows, maintaining the overall look of your home.

Different Types of Mosquito Nets for Windows

When considering a mosquito net for your windows, you’ll encounter various options to suit your specific needs and window types:

  • Fixed Frame Nets: These are permanently installed on the window frame and offer a sleek, unobtrusive look. They are ideal for windows that are rarely opened.
  • Retractable Nets: These nets can be rolled up or down when needed, providing flexibility and convenience. They are a good choice for frequently used windows.
  • Pleated Nets: These nets use a pleated design that expands to cover the window when deployed and compacts for storage. They are a space-saving option for smaller windows.
  • Magnetic Nets: These nets attach to the window frame using magnets, making them easy to install and remove. They are a good temporary solution or for frequently used windows.

  • Window Type: Ensure the net you choose is compatible with your window type (sliding sash, casement, etc.).
  • Mesh Material: Fibreglass mesh is the most common and affordable option. However, for superior durability and airflow, consider polyester or aluminum mesh.
  • Frame Material: Aluminum frames are strong, lightweight, and rust-resistant, making them ideal for South Africa’s climate.
  • Size and Fit: Measure your windows accurately to ensure the net fits perfectly. A proper fit is crucial for optimal protection against mosquitos.


    Installation and Maintenance Tips
    Installing your window net is generally a straightforward process. Most manufacturers provide clear instructions for DIY and installation options.

    For maintenance, regularly remove leaves, debris, and dust from the mesh using a soft brush or vacuum cleaner. Depending on the material, you might be able to wash the net with mild soap and water. Always refer to the manufacturer’s Cleaning Guide for specific cleaning recommendations.
