Being close to nature has one drawback: insects in your mobile living room and bedroom can be a real nuisance. Which makes it best to take simple precautions and add a custom-fitted fly screen to the entrance. The FlyTec FT200 fly screen from Dometic covers the entrance completely and has a magnetic closure.
This one is for the higher version (1,250 mm x 1,755 mm = Width x Hight) of sliding doors featured by vehicles such as Fiat Ducato X250 / X290 or their similar "brothers" Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Jumper (model series L2H2 to L4H3) as left driven version(driver seat left / sliding door at passenger site), all since construction version July 2006 or younger.
Before you decide to order this insect screen, please check in advance on your vehicle whether the requirements for a successful installation can be met. The above picture # 4 and important information in the opposite tab "Good to know!" offer a good orientation.
If all the requirements are met, the actual assembly is relatively easy. And from this moment on you keep flies, mosquitoes and other animals out of the inside of your vehicle when closed.
Which tools and additional, optional screw material you need for the assembly, we have summarized for you briefly in the adjacent tab "Good to know!".
Scope of delivery:
- 1x Skirting board
- 1x Cassette profile with flyscreen & guide cables
- 1x C pillar cover
- 7x Blind rivet (4 x 8 mm with stainless steel mandrel)
- 1x Fastening screw M5 x 30 mm and M5 nut
- 1x Guide rail above
- 1x Safety clip and screw M2, 5 x 6
- 1x Deflection screw M4 with safety clip and screw M2, 5 x 6, and
- a multi-lingual installation and operating manual
However, screws for fastening the upper guide rail and for the lower step rail are not part of the scope of delivery! This is associated with the most varied of properties of the upper assembly area (for example metal or wood) and the sub-floor.
Please note that there are also low-roof versions of the Fiat Ducato, Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Jumper (model series L1H1 to L2H1) with a sliding door dimension of "only" 1,075 x 1,485 mm or 1,250 x 1,485 (width x height). The insect screen door offered here is too big for this dimensions and cannot be adjusted accordingly (for example shortened in height).
The installation opening must not be reduced by built-on strips, covers, fixtures or the like. This should be at least 1250 x 1755 mm (width x height). See also picture # 4 above (diagram labeled "X" and "Y").
There must be a clearance of at least 40 mm between the rear, vertical sliding door seal and any built-in furniture so that the insect screen can be installed. See picture # 4 above (detailed diagram, small circle).
A free space of 18 mm must be available between the outer edge of the body floor and any built-in cupboards (e.g. a kitchen block). See picture # 4 above (detailed diagram, large circle).
The insect screen should be screwed to the body panel at the top. A screw connection on the cladding or the interior will probably not hold up sufficiently! On the other hand, a lower screw connection to the interior fitting floor is normally unproblematic. In principle, in all areas in which screw connections are made, it is essential to check beforehand that there are no cables, lines and / or other components, especially those that are not visible.
Tools & optional screws required for assembly:
- a hand riveter for aluminum rivets up to at least 4 mm Ø
- a screwdriver with a smaller, narrow slot, as well
- optional / on-site screws (depending on the properties for metal, wood, etc.)
- 5 countersunk screws Ø 4 mm for the floor skirting board
- 4 countersunk screws Ø 4 mm for the upper guide rail
- as well as the tool required for this, depending on the head design (slot, cross or Torx)
Please select the length of the optional countersunk head screws to be used on site according to the existing conditions. Do not screw through the outer panel or hidden cables or hoses.
Since hand riveting pliers are seldom part of the home tool kit, we have one in two different versions (only for aluminum or for both aluminum and steel rivets) so that you can add them directly to your shopping cart if necessary.
Der Insektenschutz ist wirklich Top. Super Qualität, Preis Leistung ok
Es fehlt in meinen Augen lediglich etwas Zubehör (Schrauben) um die 10 Sterne zu erreichen.
Wichtig zu wissen: einfacher Anbau wenn der Boden noch nicht gedämmt ist, ansonsten muss man nacharbeiten
Vielen Dank für Ihre positive Rückmeldung. Erfahrungsgemäß ist die Einbausituation in vielen Fahrzeugen unterschiedlich, da oftmals die Höhe des eingebrachten Fußbodens als auch die Position des Küchenblocks (erforderlicher Abstand zur Schiebetür) variieren, so dass ggf. Nacharbeiten/Anpassungen erforderlich sind. Das Befestigungsschrauben nicht Bestandteil des Lieferumfangs sind, ist in erster Linie dem Umstand geschuldet, dass oft auch nicht einheitliche Materialien oder Materialstärken verwendet werden, die wiederum oft unterschiedliche Schraubenarten und/oder Schraubenlängen erforderlich machen. Insofern kann man nachvollziehen, dass Dometic in diesem Fall auf das Beilegen von Schrauben verzichtet, welche unter Umständen gar nicht eingesetzt werden können.
