My windows have security insect screens fitted - are there issues to consider when installing?

Security insect screens are usually fitted & locked into the frame so there should be no problem installing WWG’s.  As WWG’s generally attach to the external side of the window frame, they should fit easily to windows with standard or security insect screens.

Can I still remove the insect screens with a WWG fitted?

Standard insect screens found on most aluminium windows can be removed inwards rather than outwards so the having WWG fitted won’t affect their removal for cleaning or repair. As most security insect screens are locked in place, clean & repair as per the manufacturers recommendations.

If needed, can I remove and reinstall my WWGs?

While we don’t recommend this, they can be removed by inserting a flat blade between the window frame and WWG. Extra care is required so as not to scratch the window frame or WWG. Use a product such as eucalyptus oil or dewatering fluid to remove all remnants of the adhesive tape and ensure the window frame is clean before reinstalling. Use only quality 3M double sided adhesive tape to reattach the WWG to the window frame.
