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.
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.
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.
