Cut from Wikipedia. Mosquito netting can be made from cotton, polyethylene, polyester, polypropylene, or nylon. A mesh size of 1.2 millimeters (0.047 in) stops mosquitoes, and smaller, such as 0.6 millimeters (0.024 in), stops other biting insects such as biting midges/no-see-ums.
Mosquito nets for companionway from Waterline Design are made of durable polyester netting that is made to last long time. All bug screens are made with mesh size 0,6 millimeter (0,024 in) to prevent the smallest biting insects, midges, No-see-ums, gnat etc. plus all large bugs such as Wasps. We believe it’s essential with protection for more than standard mosquitoes. Many other common manufacturers of mosquito net for boats just offer bug screens for mosquitoes.
Set up bug screen for companionway
Waterline Design offers different mosquito nets: set up from the inside or “Throw-over” the companionway. The Throw-over net is a net that you hang or drape over the hatch. A weight band keeps it in place and seal against the outside of the boat. This type of net is especially good when you have a roller blind on the inside. The disadvantage is the you need to go outside to set it up. Often done when it’s bedtime and the mosquitoes are most active, and you expose yourself to the bugs. This net also works perfect for the companionway. Our companionway net is one of our most sold products. Easy to use and fast to set up. See also our net the set ups from inside with magnet or suction cup is done in a few seconds. A steel frame is holding out the net.
The net is supposed to be larger and cover the cut-out hole for the hatch or portlight. You attach the suction cup or magnet to an open hatch. You than use cord that runs from the suction cup, through the net in an eyelet / grommet and ends with a cord lock. With the cord lock you can press the larger net to the boat ceiling. Since the net is larger, it will be 100% mosquito free. The cord lock will close the eyelet / grommet.
