    I've purchased this kit and am absolutely delighted with it. I actually have open-outwards windows (contrary to the first reviewer) and I can vouch that the screen does indeed suit open-outwards windows too. It's simple to do this: the screen uses Velcro strips and so any edge of the screen can easily be unattached temporarily to access your window latch behind the screen. Open or close your window, then smooth the screen back into place. Very easy to do this.

    Once in place, the mesh is so fine that it is practically invisible. The narrow strips of Velcro fix firmly to both wood and UPVC window frames and there is enough Velcro supplied to completely encircle the window. The mesh is easy to cut to shape (I recommend leaving a little excess for easier fitting).

    The only difficulty I can envisage with open-outwards windows are the older-style wooden casement designs that use a metal horizontal bar to prop open the window. This bar will jut inwards through the mesh screen, and so you will need to allow slack in the mesh so that you can tuck it around this bar. More modern windows don't tend to use these prop bars and don't present this problem.

    Good value for money and just what I required. The only down side is that the sticky back of the velcro doesn't stay put. Just used a couple of drawings pins for each strip so now it's O.K.

    Colour Name: DESIGN 1Item Package Quantity: 1
    As noted above this product consists of a roll of velcro with a self-adhesive back and a big piece of mesh fabric which is cut to size. We have uPVC windows and this product stuck easily to them. Unfortunately it seems to come unstuck with as much ease despite them being very clean as advised in the product instructions (they peel at the corners as Mr Cheng describes in an earlier review).
    We have windows which open outwards and this screen was compatible with these, however the mesh did become a bit tatty and frayed with repeated opening and closing. However as it only cost a few quid, I'd expected this!
    If you don't mind re-sticking the velcro daily, this screen is modestly effective for the price.

    The low price buys you some mesh and some velcro: if you have suitable windows (as has been pointed out, the product is most suited to inward-opening windows), easy access to both sides of the frame and are able to cut the mesh accurately enough, you might find this worth a try. But with outward-opening windows above ground-floor level, I ended up with tatty results that were unacceptable. Solutions incorporating a mounting frame for the mesh will give more consistent results, but of course at increased cost. The product gets a generous 3 stars anyway, because you get what you pay for, and in this case, that's not much.

    Excellent product, good price. I have older wooden sliding sash windows and currently have the top sash fully open on four windows. This keeps a lovely breeze through the house during this terribly warm weather - and not an insect in sight.
    I got my first screen and I can confirm that the self adhesive Velcro does indeed lift, but I noted how it lifted. The tape seems to expand over a few days and lifts off in small hoop-shaped areas. I fixed those. I ordered another screen and this time I warmed the tape slightly and stretched it as I applied it. This time there were no hoops, but the ends started to lift. One small staple at each end sorted the problem and is a small work-around to have outside-inside with no insects.
    The mesh allows a breeze to pass where a fine net would be billowing like a sail. A slightly finer mesh might be good for when the tiny harvest-lice come out.
    The black colour is almost invisible where a light colour would discolour and be visually obtrusive.
    If you are fussy, you could remove the screen once a month and rinse off the trapped dirt - my dirt threshold is probably nearer three months.
    I regard my present installation as a test. When my windows are fully renovated, I will take more care in positioning the Velcro - maybe use a straight edge guide to apply and I might even attempt a hem to neaten the edges. I will be fitting this product to every window in my house.

    I bought this as a stop-gap solution last summer. Insects buzzing round my lampshade in the evening were driving me nuts, and although I was willing to pay for a smart solution, none seemed available. This was available, so I got it, stuck it up and left it to do its job. Which it does. Right now, in the middle of a heatwave, the window has stood open all evening and I'm not hearing a single tick of insect against the paper lampshade.

    I've not been ambitious in the way I've used it. It sits over a small outward-opening light at the top of the main window, about 20x40cm. When I need to open or close that window (not often) I generally open the big window and handle it from the outside, thus avoiding having to unstick the net. The net's quite fragile and the velcro strip tends to tear the net when you pull it off, so I avoid doing that. Quite easy to do. The velcro itself is starting to come unstuck from the UPVC window frame after a year, so I may need to replace it.

    For the price, I think this is excellent value so I've given it 5 stars. Don't expect too much of it, but if you are prepared to work around its general fragility, it will get and keep you fly-free all summer long.
