Best double sided tape for brick?


Best double sided tape for brick?

I'm fitting a magnetic fly screen in front of my single garage door and want to use the best one. 

I want to place the tape on the brick work around the outside of the door.

It will replace the tape included with the magnetic screen for a stronger one. I'll then add a magnetic tape to then secure the insect screen with its magnetic tape. 

Can you advise the best strongest tape that will withstand weather conditions please?

I've watched the reviews for nano tape and it won't last and the reviews on your website for clear Gorilla tape aren't good either. 

Thank you.

Re: best double sided tape for brick

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Maureen53. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about double-sided tape.


Using double-sided tape on brickwork wouldn't be my first choice for securing something to it. Because of the brick being extremely rough and porous, most tapes will have trouble adhering to it. Mounting tapes really excel on smooth surfaces where there is a lot of contact area.


Are you able to attach the fly screen on the inside? Perhaps the magnetic strip could be screwed into the brickwork in the corners to assist the double-sided tape. You might like to post an image of the door, so our members have a better idea of where you would like to attach the strip.


Let me mention @redracer01 and @TedBear to see if they have any recommendations.

Hello @Maureen53 


Are you in a rental property or is this your property? If it is perhaps we can attach the magnetic fly screen in a more permanent manner? Yes? No? If the latter then we can give you excellent suggestions for permanent fixing. If not we will have to think of something else.
