step 1 – Measure the width

Measure the width from the left side of the window edge to the middle of the mullion.  Essentially where you want the 11mm window screen frame to be installed.  Face fix measuring accuracy is not as critical as drop-in, but the screen should align nicely with the window frame. In this situation, the measurement is 900mm.

STEP 5 – fix the screws

Lift the screen into place positioning it hard up against the receiver side of the glass window frame. Check to see if the screw fixing positions are ideal. If all good, start by fixing the top and bottom screws to the mullion first. After fixing the screens corners, install one screw in the middle of each side. For this window, we are using 10 (ten) security screws in total.
