It is made from a fiberglass mesh screen, rolled into a 2-in. sq. aluminum storage cassette or case. The cassette is mounted horizontally on top of the doorway. To support the edges, the side tracks of aluminum are attached vertically at the door jambs.
The sill is free from tracks so there is no way for dirt or debris to accumulate and interfere with the screen. Screenex Model PD7283 has been installed in front of a 6-ft. wide pair of French doors. Other models are also available for doors measuring 3-8 feet in width. Screenex doors are also available to be used as a screen to protect a two-car garage, or open-air porch. Available in white, almond, or brown.
Before you buy a door, measure its inside width at the top or bottom of the opening. If the door frame has a square shape, then it should be measured by 1/4 in. Order the screen door if it is within 1/4 in. If the door is not square, it will have to be adjusted to align the jambs.

The cassette is horizontally installed over the doorway. You will need to cut the storage cassette down to the required width using a hacksaw. It should not exceed 1/8 inches.
