DIY mosquito nets


To avoid buying an expensive mosquito net, you can build a do-it-yourself mosquito net. First you need to buy the right materials. Those offered by Brico, for example, allow you to quickly and easily construct a very comfortable mosquito net, as it is a roll-up model that allows the window to be used without problems, unlike fixed mosquito nets. Before proceeding with the construction, it is necessary to take the measurements of the window. Then you need to cut the case of the Brico mosquito net using the measuring tape and the iron saw. Then the spring must be inserted into the seat provided inside the case, closing it with the screws. At this point it is necessary to fix the center line of the guide of the case, where the string will then be placed; the handles and side caps will then be inserted into the guide. Once the clips have also been fixed at the ends, you can proceed with the insertion of the side guides, cut with the saw according to the measurements of our window. Once these operations are completed, the Brico mosquito net is ready to be fixed to the window.
