How do I remove my Jason Windows security screens for cleaning?
Our security screens shouldn’t be removed for cleaning purposes. Though there are still multiple ways to clean your screens without compromising security.
For a sliding screen window, you can usually hose the window down from the outside. However, if you want a more thorough clean then you can remove the sliding part of the window to gain access to the inside of the security screen. See below for an instructional video on how to remove the window.
For an Awning (aka winding) window, to gain access to the inside of the security screen you must wind your window out fully and use the open gap to reach the security screen.
How to remove flyscreens for cleaning?
We recommend you clean your flyscreens at least once a year. Regular cleaning will ensure your screens stay in good working order for years to come.
On the top of your flyscreen, there should be a fly tab which you can use to pull out the screen so that you can give it a thorough clean.
Our service team have put together a range of videos to show you how to remove your flyscreens or flydoors for easy cleaning.:
- Sliding Windows
- Awning Windows
- Sliding Flydoor

What type of glass cleaner should I use?
The Australian Window Association recommends that you clean windows using a non-abrasive pH neutral detergent solution.
Ammonia-based and alcohol-based glass cleaners are not recommended due to the streaky residue they can leave behind. Some branded glass cleaning solutions can cause damage to speciality glass such as laminated, tinted and coated glass such as Low E glass.
The safest option for cleaning glass is to follow this simple solution:
- Mix 200mL of methylated spirits with 1.5Lt of clean warm water.
- Dip a non-abrasive damp cloth into the solution, thoroughly squeeze it out and then wipe the glass all over.
- Using a separate soft lint-free cloth, polish the glass surface.
- Repeat the process on the other side of the glass.
Refer to our Cleaning & Maintenance guide for complete cleaning instructions and recommended solutions for:
- Aluminium Framed Windows & Doors
- Locks, Catches and Rollers
- Standard Glass
- Paint Spots
- High-Performance Glass
What colours are available?
Choosing the perfect colour for your windows, doors & security screens can be challenging. That is why we have selected our seven most popular shades to help you decide. In addition to these popular colours, you can now choose from our selection of timber look colours for your front door. Imagine the look for timber without the maintenance headaches!
Something to keep in mind, all the colours shown on our website are reproduced as accurately as possible. However, the colour profile on your monitor or mobile device will affect colour accuracy. We recommend you make your final colour selection from the samples on display in a Jason Windows showroom or your builders display centre.
Alternatively, if you have your eye on a special colour that isn’t in our standard range, or are trying to match an existing colour, talk to our sales team about the wide variety of custom colours we provide. You should note however, additional charges and longer lead times apply.
What brand of paint does Jason Windows use?
Jason Windows doesn’t use paint on our window and door frames but instead uses an aluminium powder coat. This is predominantly sourced from Interpon which contain no organic solvents or heavy metal pigments such as lead. We can also source colours from Dulux upon request.
You should note however, additional charges and longer lead times apply when a non standard colour is chosen.
Can I repaint my window frames?
Our windows and door frames cannot be repainted by the homeowner. This is because our frames are coloured using aluminium powder coat, and our products require pre-treatment to apply this. However external onsite application companies can be hired to re-do the windows. The pre-treatment and repainting process can often be more expensive than replacing the frames with new frames.
Contact Jason Windows supply department to be put in touch with a recommended repainting specialist, or visit our renovation page for a quote to replace your frames.
Can I install a pet door into my existing window, door or security screen?
Windows & Glass Doors
Yes, a pet door can be installed into your existing window or glass door, however, the glass must first be replaced with Toughened Grade A Safety Glass (not laminated). We have two height options:
- 385mm for dogs
- 266mm for cats, or small dogs
For a safe installation, there must be an allowance of 50mm on each side and 50mm from the bottom glass edge, not the frame.
Contact Jason Windows service team today and they can check the glass type you have in your home and supply a pet door quote.
Jason Windows don’t offer pet doors for our security screen products however, we can put you in touch with a pet door supplier who specialises in providing pet doors to suit the Jason Windows security door range. Contact our Jason Windows Security Screen team today for the referral.
What is the scratch resistance & durability of the timber look door finish?
Jason Windows commissioned independent testing to determine the surface durability of our Timber Look Door finish to determine scratch and marring resistance. What’s the difference?
The results proved the Timber look door finish exceeds average powder coat finish performance in the scratch and Mar testing.
What is the difference between a flyscreen, grille screen and security screen?
Are perfect for keeping insects such as flies, wasps, sandflies, mosquitoes, midges and spiders out while still allowing the cool breeze throughout your home. Flyscreens are not designed to keep pets and children contained.
Grille or Barrier Screens
Generally grille or barrier screens are designed to keep the pesky insects at bay and also offer some degree of protection against intruders. They are not rated for security by the Australian Standards.
Security screens are designed and installed to withstand an attack by an intruder whilst still functioning as an insect screen and allowing air flow into the home.

What do I need to do before the installers arrive?
We ask that furniture and other items including blinds be moved clear of the work space before the installers arrive on site.
Will there be any damage when my new windows and doors are installed?
Most often, the original windows in residential construction are installed during the brick work stage of construction, and the house has essentially been built around the windows. Often internal plastering or external rendering works are also completed after the windows. This makes the window removal quite a technical part of the process. We need to assess exactly the best process and sequence for removal, for example, where to cut, where to push and where to pull!
Wet areas are particularly challenging as tiles are usually laid over the frame itself and require cutting to remove the frame while preserving the wall finishes that will remain for the new window installation. This is another element of the installation process that makes each project unique and our renovation team discuss any areas of concern at the site consultation.
Post fit remedial works are not something common, and our standard installation takes every element we can reasonably foresee into account to leave you with a project that’s complete with a quality finish for you to stand back and admire.
There can always be an unforeseeable exception, for example, some defects from the workmanship of past trades can present once the window works disturb the surrounding areas, or we may see something that requires your attention that is outside the scope of the window works such as rusty steel columns, vermin or asbestos. Our renovation team will always raise these points for discussion as soon as they are noticed.
Do you take away my old windows and doors?

We will explain the different attributes of each product and how their operation, aesthetic, airflow and other paramaters will work within your space.
