In this video we are going to teach you how to Measure and Install an Insect Screen to an A&L OX Sliding Window.
step 1 – Remove the glass sliding window
When measuring for a drop-in installation, it is always good to remove the glass sliding window first and store in a safe place.
step 2 – measure the width
Insert the measuring tape inside the window frame measuring from the channel to the edge of mullion to find the maximum opening size, in this case, 895mm.
To find the minimum opening size, measure from the window lip to the same mullion. Measurement is 877mm. For this installation, we will deduct 9mm for a manufactured size of 886mm.
step 3 – measure the drop
To measure the drop, find the maximum opening size, placing the measuring tape inside the head channel, measuring from the head channel to the top of the window sill, the opening size is 1158mm.
To find the minimum opening size, measure from the head channel fin to inside the bottom channel. Note: this window has a packer at the bottom. Deduct 5mm for a manufactured size of 1153 allowing the screen to fit into the channels.
step 4 – install the insect screen
First, check if the lift tab is facing the inside of the window. Then place the screen in the top channel and the jamb side at the same time.
Push the opposite side to the top corner into the channel. Gently lift the screen and push the bottom left corner into the channel. The insect screen then will drop nicely into the bottom channel.
step 5 – complete the job
To complete the job, check the screen frame and the insect mesh. Reinsert the glass window and clean the area you just installed.
Congratulations, you now know how to measure and install an Insect screen to an A&L OX Sliding window.
