There are various types of flyscreen. There are different types of mesh, different types of enclosures and different means of installation; all of which can be made permanent of movable, all of which can all be combined in several ways.
This is a cheap material and suitable for both fixed and movable applications. It keeps out all flying insects, but provides no security benefits to potential human intruders.
This is long lasting and strong, highly resistant to rust, and is as effective against insects as any other mesh. But as aluminium does not paint easily the bare metal look cannot be varied.
This is by far the strongest mesh, and proves very difficult for potential thieves. Unlike other options it can also be coloured with powder coating. It is completely rust resistant unless exposed to very strong corrosive agents.
Screens can be permanently fixed to the window or made retractable.
Most flyscreen doors are hinged. Windows can effectively and inexpensively be made the same way. There needs to be sufficient room for the apparatus to swing open and shut, but otherwise this is an effective system of opening the whole window.
These are like sliding doors. Indeed, some large enclosures use sliding flyscreen doors. Windows are also very neatly done this way. They are moderately inexpensive and their only disadvantage is that they will only cover half of the available space; the other half is the space they slide into. As the other half is usually a fixed window that does not require a screen this is rarely a problem.
These are the most discreet option, short of removing the screen altogether. Flexible screens can retract into an enclosure and roll into a small space. Being controlled by an electronic remote or simple rods and cords these are the ultimate in convenience.
Alternately, some people prefer not to use screens at all in seasons where insects are not a problem. Magnetic screens easily attach to metal window frames, and can be rolled up and store elsewhere during the offseason.
