The Science Behind the Mesh

The RAM Bug Barrier Mesh is a marvel of simplicity and efficiency in design. At its core, the barrier functions as a physical filter, a circular shield that attaches directly to your air intake system. They consist of a finely woven mesh material calibrated to offer the perfect balance between pest prevention and airflow maintenance. This attribute ensures that while the smallest of insects are kept out, the vital air circulation necessary for healthy plant growth remains unhindered.

Secure and Simple Installation

Moreover, the RAM Bug Barrier is special because it integrates seamlessly with existing systems. Each barrier comes equipped with Velcro fasteners around its edge. These fasteners correspond to separate adhesive Velcro pieces that you attach directly to your ducting or spigot. Once in place, the mesh shield can be easily attached and removed, facilitating straightforward maintenance and replacement. This design ensures a secure fit and also simplifies the entire installation process.

Why Choose RAM Bug Barrier Mesh?

Firstly, the barrier’s effectiveness in preventing bug infestations while maintaining airflow is a crucial advantage for any hydroponic gardener.

Preparing Your Installation

Before installing the Bug Barrier, ensure your intake system is clean and accessible. This preliminary step is crucial to ensure the adhesive Velcro sticks effectively and provides a strong, lasting hold. You’ll want to measure the diameter of your air intake spigot or ducting end to choose the correct size of the Barrier Mesh from the available options.

Attaching the Velcro

Once you’ve selected the appropriate size, start by preparing the Velcro strips. The Bug Barrier comes with Velcro fasteners sewn into its edges. Correspondingly, you’ll find separate Velcro pieces with a peel-off adhesive back in the package. Peel these covers off and carefully place them around the circumference of your ducting or spigot. Make sure they align well with the fasteners on the mesh for a secure fit.

Securing the Mesh

After setting up the Velcro, it’s time to attach the mesh itself. Align the sewn-in Velcro fasteners of the mesh with the adhesive strips you’ve placed around your intake. Press firmly to ensure a good seal; this prevents any gaps that could allow insects to sneak through. The design allows for quick adjustments, so if the initial alignment isn’t perfect, you can easily reposition the mesh.

Maintenance Tips

Regularly check and clean the mesh to maintain optimal functioning. Over time, the mesh might collect dust and debris, which can slightly reduce airflow and its effectiveness at keeping bugs out. Clean the mesh periodically by gently removing it, then using water and a mild detergent to wash away any build-up. Once dry, reattach it as before.

Ensuring Continuous Protection

Regularly inspect the installation to ensure the Velcro holds strong and the mesh remains intact. This routine checkup will help maintain the protective barrier’s efficiency and extend its service life.

Can the RAM Bug Barrier Mesh fit any size of ducting or fan?

Absolutely! The RAM Bug Barrier Mesh accommodates a wide range of sizes, from 100mm to 315mm in diameter. This versatility ensures that whatever the size of your air intake system, there’s a mesh cover that will fit perfectly, providing effective protection against pests while maintaining airflow.

How often should I replace the RAM Bug Barrier Mesh?

Typically, the Bug Barrier Mesh should last a long while with proper maintenance. However, it’s a good idea to inspect it during regular cleaning intervals. If you notice significant wear or damage, or if the mesh starts to sag, it’s time for a replacement to ensure your grow room remains protected without compromising air quality.

Does the installation of the RAM Bug Barrier Mesh reduce airflow significantly?

Not at all! The mesh is fine enough to stop bugs but porous enough to allow air to flow freely into your grow space. You’ll find that it barely affects the airflow, ensuring your plants receive the necessary ventilation without the risk of pest intrusion.
