Please take your time to read the assembly instructions to carry out a safe and correct installation. Do not proceed simply by looking at the images!
Before starting the installation process, we suggest watching the related installing video. We also remind you that, when installing, the regulations in force in their respective countries have to be respected in terms of safety. Therefore, it will be necessary to use all the devices needed for personal protection to guarantee the carry out of the installation in complete safety. Thank you! 🙂

Attach the provided double-sided adhesive on the low bottom track and on the “arrival” profile.
This is an optional step, but it allows you to give the guides a better stability.
Place the low bottom track on the ground and the “arrival” profile on the vertical wall of the window opening.

Pre-assemble the caps with the springs:
Insert the caps at the cassette extremities.
– – 3 – –
Insert the cassette:
Using the expansion mechanism, insert the cassette in the window opening and join it with the low bottom track.

Prepare the upper guide as well, inserting the cap on the side where the guide will be joined to the “arrival” profile. LINK TO THE VIDEO
Then insert the upper guide in the window opening.

Block the insect screen screwing the expansion caps and insert the plastic covers on the extremities of the cassette and of the guides. Finally, make sure that the pin located at the top of the bar handle is moved upwards to ensure that the insect screen slides parallel to the guides. In case of out-of-square in the window opening, adjust the pin accordingly to correct the out of square.

At the end of the assembly process, regulate the position of the hook for the handle on the vertical “arrival” profile. Then screw it to fix it.
To open the insect screen, press the release button, which is located in the top part of the handle itself (as shown in the image).
Attention: it is always advisable to fix the vertical “arrival” profile with silicone, at least in the hook area.
If the opening walls are quite irregular, we suggest applying some silicone between the wall and the profiles so as to fill the existing void.
1) In the instructions it is written that I can use silicone. When and how can I use it?
In the assembly instructions, reference is made to silicone, not to give more solidity to the insect screen, but to equalize and level any major defects and irregularities of the French door/window opening The use of silicone is recommended only after having properly checked the functioning of the insect screen, to avoid having to disassemble the whole frame in case of problems related to the mounting of the structural elements.
These instructions have to be read before installing, starting-up and using the insect screen.
These instructions are part and parcel of the product.
Read carefully the following warnings and instructions in that they provide important information regarding SAFETY OF USE and MAINTENANCE.
The content of the following instructions has to be brought up to the attention of the insect screen user.
The insect screen is only intended to be a protection against the entrance of insects, such as mosquitoes or others, from the openings where it is installed.
The expected installation is the one with horizontal roll-up functioning of the insect screen.
The insect screen must be intended only as mentioned above.
Any other use is to be considered improper.
Here are some examples of improper applications:
– assembling with vertical functioning.
– assembling at the ceiling (for example: skylights).
– hooking or hanging objects to the insect screen.
– leaning things, animals or people on any insect screen part.
The manufacturer cannot be considered responsible for any damage caused by improper or different applications other than that for which the insect screen is intended.
Pay particular attention to the use of pointed and/or sharpened tools to avoid damaging the insect screen.

ASSEMBLING THE ACCESSORIES
The insect screen is assembled by the manufacturer for all that concerns its fundamental parts.
Due to the KIT nature of the product itself, the other insect screen elements are supplied disassembled and it has to be the client who assembles them in accordance with the instructions here provided.
Adopt appropriate safety measures to avoid risks during the installation of the product.
1) During the installation of the product, do not cling to it.
2) Use only the components supplied in the assembling kit.
3) In case of application of the insect screen over the first floor of the building, we always recommend to attach the side guides with silicone.
4) Once the installation is over, check the tightening of the expansion screws in the cassette and in the guides.
The day after installation, check the tightness of the screws again to recover and correct any settling of the materials.
If the walls of the window opening have an uneven surface, we suggest to fix the guides with silicone.
WARNINGS FOR USE
ATTENTION! The spring-loaded insect screen presents a serious risk of impact of the bar handle when opening. *
* in models equipped with a brake, this danger is reduced.
To unhook the insect screen and rewind the mesh cloth, rotate the bar handle profile anticlockwise, then always accompany its movement with your hand.
To hook the insect screen back in its initial position, pull the bar handle towards the closing side, then make sure that it is firmly locked in the appropriate hooks.
With the insect screen in operation, avoid knocks on the bottom, which could cause it to close quickly. KEEP CHILDREN AWAY FROM THE HOOKING / RELEASING AREA OF THE INSECT SCREEN.
Periodically (i.e. at least once a month), check the correct tightening of the screws.
In the event of a collision with the guides or the cassette, check the correct positioning of the parts and the tightening of the expansion screws.
DO NOT PROCEED WITH ANY OTHER INTERVENTION THAT INVOLVES THE DISASSEMBLY OF PARTS WHICH ORIGINALLY WERE ALREADY ASSEMBLED BY THE MANUFACTURER.
For these operations, always contact the authorized centre.
ONLY PROCEDURES WHICH ARE AUTHORIZED IN THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL CAN BE DONE BY THE USER.
After being assembled, the insect screen does not require any particular maintenance.
Depending on use (at least once a year), clean the insect screen from dust or other residues.
For this operation, use a brush with soft bristles or a cloth dampened only with water.
