The mosquito net with magnetic closure opens instantly with a simple touch; the closing is also automatic, once you have crossed the threshold of the door or the window sill. The curtain, on the other hand, is similar to that of traditional mosquito nets and, as such, equally forms that impenetrable barrier that leaves insects outside the house, while at the same time allowing fresh air to enter freely. In addition, compared to traditional mosquito nets, this type of mosquito net can be used in a much simpler way as it excludes any voluntary intervention of the hands, thanks to the force of gravity and the small magnets it is equipped with. Every time someone passes through the door, the curtains of the mosquito net open and close automatically, due to the fall effect.
The compact size and ease of assembly make magnetic mosquito nets preferable to all other types of mosquito nets. In addition to the magnets, in fact, they are equipped with strips of adhesive velcro. This allows anyone to mount the product on the door or window without the use of nails or other tools. Furthermore, the assembly, in addition to being easy and safe, does not damage the windows of the house. The combined action of the velcro and the small magnets causes the mosquito net to open when people pass and, subsequently, by falling, it re-positions itself in its seat. In this way the doors or windows are “sealed”, preventing the entry of mosquitoes but, above all, allowing people and, in particular, children and pets, to be free to enter and exit.
Magnetic mosquito nets can be purchased, in easy-to-assemble kits, in specialized shops, on the internet and, often, in a normal hardware store. Prices range from 9 to 35 euros and more. However, it is advisable to buy the models from 18-19 Euros upwards. The price, of course, depends on the quality of the product. In fact, it is advisable to buy mosquito nets with a sufficient number of magnets. The only drawback could be the efficiency of the magnets, because they are few or not very powerful. The situation is easily overcome by purchasing mosquito nets with 18 magnets, more than enough to keep any curtain closed. If, on the other hand, you prefer to buy mosquito nets that let more air through (but which could let smaller insects in), the prices are very low, even under seven euros.
The boom of this type of product is given by the advent of DIY magnetic insect screen kits. Thanks to these kits, easily available on the market, a practical, fast and economical solution has been found that allows the product to be assembled with extreme ease without damaging the window frames. Installation shouldn’t be a problem even for those with only a minimum of practicality and experience in DIY. The important thing is to buy kits that are easy to assemble, regardless of the selling price. Inside the kit there are two curtains and adhesive magnets that must be applied to the window frame (or French door) and to the curtain, in the appropriate slots. Once applied, the magnets are matched and the mosquito net will remain perfectly adherent to the frame.
