Re: How to cover up the net on the window

That definitely sounds less than ideal @Maymay. I am wondering whether this is the only source of ventilation in the toilet? Let me tag @redracer01 and @MitchellMc who may be able to help with some suggestions for you.

Hi JaneK

we also have an exhaust fan too, I believe it will be ok if I cover up the net. 
Thank you

Re: How to cover up the net on the window

Hi @Maymay,

 

It's good to see you're onto the next project!

 

What does it look like from the exterior? It might be easier/look nicer if you covered it from outside. If you wanted to fix something to the interior, perhaps you could cut some Australian Handyman Supplies 1200 x 600mm 0.75 Galvabond Mini Sheet to fit the gap with tin snips and pop-rivet it in place. It could then be painted to suit the rest of the frame. Alternatively, you could use CustomWood MDF 900 x 600 x 3mm Standard MDF Panel if you painted it as we can cut it to size for you in-store.

Re: How to cover up the net on the window

Hi Mitchell

yes! Another project for me 😊, I think I am very popular to ask the advice 😅
I don’t want to cover up the whole window ( the glass part is ok, only the top side with the metal net has to cover to avoid the wind and dust ) 

Regards

Maymay

Re: How to cover up the net on the window

Hi @Maymay,

 

I believe covering this hole from the outside would look the best. I'd recommend using the  Australian Handyman Supplies 1200 x 600mm 0.75 Galvabond Mini Sheet to fit the gap, cut to size with tin snips and pop-riveted in place. You could also use some 110 x 19mm x 1.8m Tasmanian Oak Dressed All Round DAR Select Grade cut to the frame's width. You can then pre-drill the timber and frame and fix the timber in place with Zenith 10G x 40mm Gold Passivated Countersunk Head Metal Screws.

Hi Mitchell,

Thank you for your information, I really don’t want to cover whole window, any more suggestion like a temporary tape only cover the net then I can change for every 6 months ?

Re: How to cover up the net on the window

The method I've described above would be just for the gap, not the whole window, @Maymay. For a simple solution, you could just apply T-Rex 101mm x 1.5m Strong Waterproof Tape to the exterior. I'd imagine the tape would last for several years.
