Light weight screen mesh has an open and porous weave that allows for great air flow and a brighter room.
Heavy stronger screen mesh will conversely be more restrictive in air flow and filter out more light.
So keep it light weight unless screen strength is the bigger concern.
Our Standard Weight screen mesh is tough and durable with
a .11" charcoal color fiberglass thread and 18 x 16 mesh.
Standard screen mesh lightly filters the sunlight and allows great airflow. Standard mesh is typically used for window screens.
Heavy Duty fiberglass screen mesh is 30% stronger than Standard Weight mesh and features a sturdy .13" charcoal color fiberglass thread and 18 x 14 mesh.
Heavy Duty is an ideal choice for screen doors, patios, screen rooms and gazebos.
Pet resistant Super Screen mesh is .018" polyester thread woven into a super tough 17 x 13 screen mesh. Super Screen has much greater strength, durability and will last much longer than typical fiberglass thread screen fabrics. Super Screen is a great choice for high traffic doors when strength and durability is most important.
Window screens are not child proof!
Locked screen doors will not stop a determined child!
Keep young children away from open doors and windows.
