Don’t let midges and flies ruin your holiday road trip

Midges and flies are common seasonal pests, especially when the weather is warm and damp. They are notorious in Scotland and mainland Europe so if you are planning a road trip with your camper van or motor home you will need an insect and fly screen on your windows, particularly during sticky warm days!

This was a problem faced recently by one of our customers who wanted a fly screen for her vintage camper van but didn’t want to have one permanently fixed.

The customer had already had some bespoke screens made but wasn’t sure how she was going to fix the screens in place, until she contacted first4magnets.com.

Fortunately, this is a common problem that our technical experts are faced with so they were able to suggest using high-powered neodymium black skittle magnets to fix the screen to the metal frame of the camper van doors. As seen in these great photos.

Normally, high-powered skittle magnets are used with magnetic noticeboards in offices and classrooms and because each is made from a high-performance neodymium magnet they are surprisingly strong for their size. So strong that each magnet is capable of holding 26 sheets of A4 paper to a noticeboard. So, holding the screen to the van doors was really a piece of cake for these magnets, even when you consider the air flow through an open window.

What’s more, the shape of these magnets make them ideal as they can be easily removed and replaced making light work of taking the screens down and putting them back up.

When the customer is back from their trip they can even use the skittle magnets to attach their holiday snaps to their fridge!
