    Screens on slider doors/windows - Inside or outside?

    I've never seen them on the inside until I walked into my project today and saw the door guy put them all in the inside, which seems very odd to me.

    This normal for Thailand, or is it a mistake?

    Normal, would be absolutely filthy in a day in Thailand if they were outside.

    You can get a breeze in the house with windows open and no flying beasties with screens inside

    It seems odd to me, you open the screen to open the window, giving insects a chance to fly in during the process. Never seen them inside before but I guess if that is the norm here... so be it.

    There you have it, unless you have sliding windows , bcus I never saw a window open inwards before, be a bit daft and painful until you got used to them

    Not at all. It takes seconds to remove them.

    Yes, these are sliders.

    I totally understand for windows that open outwards, but for sliders it doesn't seem right.

    Oh well. Sigh.

    it doesn't make much difference, either way they are a pain in the ass

    we fitted some to our kids room but hardly use them - we use a mossie net on her bed and very few other flies etc come in where we don't have any fitted
