    Hi,
    been looking at various options to try and keep the insects out of the van.
    All the windows and skylights have mesh, but not the door.

    Anyone one know if chain link is effective, or any other suggestions please?

    Found these -

    These are made from aluminium so are quite light, and some thought would have to go into securing them when travelling to minimise even more rattles :Rofl1:

    Ta very much, Sue

    Hi Sue,

    Mine has an aluminum secondary door for exactly this.Held shut by magnetic catches and hinged like a normal door.

    We can leave the main door open in the summer and still keep the flying bugs out.

    I replaced all the mesh last year with some bought on ebay as there were a couple of slight tears.

    Well pleased with the result.:Cool:

    The door is similar the this one....http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FLY-SCREEN-DO...ZUK_HG_ScreensShutters_RL?hash=item2a066ceedd

    Hi Sue,

    We have those on the external doors in our house in Spain and they are quite effective, although definitely not 100%. They are also really annoying when they get caught up with anything that you try to carry through the doorway :Angry:
