We're buildilng a house and I'm getting two big 2.4m high x 6m wide Stacker Doors for our Living & Kitchen area that flows out onto our Alfresco. I'm just trying to decide whether to put in Insect Mesh Screen or Security Screen (Crimsafe Alternative). I just don't want it to block the views and the breezes.
Our current house has the diamond grill with insect mesh screening. Although we have cross ventilation, we find it blocks out a whole lot of breezes. As soon as we step outside the doors we feel the beautiful breeze but back inside our house it's so stale and warm!
Can anyone tell me which might be better for views & breezes?

Crimsafe are easier to clean. IMO the view and breeze is better with crimsafe as it does not catch much debris/dust.
If security is not an issue then price difference is much in favour of insect mesh.

There are substitutes for security which will maintain the view, but really none when you have the door open and rely on the flyscreen to keep insects out.
The only possible improvement would be to have a roller style flyscreen which will not be in view unless it is in use. But these are not as robust as the framed style because they can collapse in the wind and suffer badly from pets and small children.
Costwise Crimsafe expensive, roller screens expensive.
You could get horizontal roller screens at say 1500mm each in width and just let them dangle... cheap but 95% effective.

Clearshield stainless steel security screen is another option. Views are better and you'll feel continuous airflow. Plus, it's easy to clean because the surface resists dust collection.
Another option is AusClear security screen. It provides clarity of vision and breeze is better too. This is a good choice if you want additional security since it's made from aluminium - durable and resistant to corrosion.
