ForceField® Insect Protection

ForceField is a security screen and insect screen in one. The openings in the mesh measure 1.5 mm x 1.6 mm – big enough for you to enjoy your view, small enough to keep just about all small creatures outside where they belong. One small creature that is not only annoying but also potentially dangerous is the dengue mosquito. The ability to keep dengue mosquitoes out makes ForceField extremely useful in the tropical parts of Australia. The test below is living proof that insect protection is another forte of ForceField.

Mosquito protection test

The Test

In the absence of a relevant Australian test, the test was conducted in Thailand with dengue fever mosquitoes – a species native to Australia. The security screen was measured by its ability to keep mosquitoes away from a food source.

The Result

With 600 mosquitoes bred in a small cage, only one (1) managed to get through to the food source within 24 hours. At the completion of the test (72 hours) only two (2) mosquitoes had passed through the ForceField® screen.

Your Benefit

ForceField® security screens keep almost everything out. Even tiny insects like dengue fever mosquitoes can’t find their way through the 1.5 mm x 1.6 mm openings in the mesh.
