How's the air flow with this screen?

I'm concerned that a thick screen like this will cut down on the amount of air flow. What is your experience with that? The only reason we want a screen door at all is to create some cross breeze, but we have multiple dogs and cats. Can anyone compare the amount of breeze with this screen to a regular screen?

1. Could I use this to replace the screen on this door http://www.homedepot.com/p/Screen-Tight-36-in-x-80-in-Chesapeake-Series-Reversible-Solid-Vinyl-Screen-Door-with-Extra-Large-Pet-Flap-CPK36XL/205209490 ? 2. What is a "spline"? 3. What size spline would I need for the aforementioned door?
Asked by: zjdiy
I can't answer your specifics about model numbers (your question #1); but I'll offer 'general information'. Question #2 - 'spline' in this sense is; a strand/ribbon/filament, generally of a 'plastic' nature. The window screen fabric is held in place in a grove, (C/U shaped) in an aluminum frame by the spline. Question #3 - Spline is available in different diameters from 1/8" (0.125), 0.140, 0.160, 0.175, 3/16" (0.185) and 0.210 and more... My old screen was ~0.15mm thick and held in with 3/16" (~4.8mm) spline in the "C/U" channel. The replacement screen is ~0.6mm thick and needed 1/8" (~3.2mm) spline. You will also need a tool to stretch the spline and force it in place. Kind of like a pizza cutter; it will have both convex and concave wheels to force the screen/spline into the grove. Hope this helps - Mike

36 in. x 84 in. Charcoal Pet Resistant Insect Screen is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not fit all frames. The spline will not seat into the frame, because the screen is too thick... Will not fit all frames. The spline will not seat into the frame, because the screen is too thick for some spline channels. Wasted money because the screen roll and spline packages have been opened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look, resistant to tearing I decided to try to install the Fiberglass Pet Resistant Screen; I found I needed a special tool and a spline kit. I could not find the tool I had purchased many years ago. This screen door is almost 40 years old. I got the spline tool and 0.140 inch spline material. I watched multiple YouTube videos to learn the steps I would need to do. The old screen material was very lightweight, this material is thick, heavy, and tear resistant. While the task was not particularly difficult, this was a case where I may have needed to use the 0.125 inch spline material for an easier job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This fabric is 2~3 times thicker than standard fiberglass screen This stuff is a lot thicker than the general screens I've replaced in the past; copper, aluminum and fiberglass types. The fabric weave is not the usual 1:1 that I've used before, but more like 2:1 (horizontal:vertical). The strands of the fabric are flat compared to the usual round strands. Hopefully this design prevents the usual 'vertical tears' from a pet's claws. Tools you will be needed to install: Screen fabric (obviously) 20-25' of spline (they recommend 1/8" or 0.125") - the thicker stuff won't work becaus of the fabric thickness Roller tool 1/8" - with convex and concave rollers Sharp utility knife, razor blade or exacto knife - sharper = cleaner finish results I'd add - that some spring clamps and a couple of yard sticks will help keeping the fabric taught and a solid flat work surface. Spline is sold in different diameters from 1/8" (0.125), 0.140, 0.160, 0.175, 3/16" (0.185) and 0.210 and more... My old screen is ~0.15mm thick and held in with 3/16" (~4.8mm) spline in the "C" channel. The replacement screen is ~0.6mm thick and will need 1/8" (~3.2mm) spline. See Pictures. Math: Old 0.15mm (screen) x 2 (layers) + 4.8mm (spline) ~ 5mm New 0.6mm (screen) x 2 (layers) + 3.2 (spline) ~ 5mm The spline is ~$4-5 for the 25' length and ~$8 for the 100' length. Plan to do another one, or two? The roller tool is ~$3 and works fine, as long as you remember where you stored it from the last time. Take your time, this is an easy job. Once you remove the old spline and screen, clean out the grove. This took me, with my wife's help about 40 minutes. The tool has two rollers for a reason; Seat one of the long sides of the screen in the channel; use the concave end to force the new screen into the grove. Use the fabric as a vertical guide. Then force the spline in, starting near a corner, locking it in place using the convex side of the tool. I needed to "stretch the spline" to make it thin enough to force into the channel. No, you do not need to do it in one piece. I found it easier to do each side individually and trim the corners. Keep the fabric square / straight to the frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enough tough enough to staple Having built a wooden frame for the screen (okay, as you can see I’m not a carpenter) I used this pet resistant screen rather than the standard mesh I have used before for the basement. I have no pets but the times I have been carrying large pieces of wood and other items through the door and having the screen door suddenly close and invariably the item I am carrying catches the screen and creates a sudden and unwanted rip. I also wanted a stronger material that I could staple to my `custom made` frame. Other screens I have tried have been virtuously useless using staples, but this one, which is made from polyester yarn and is much heavier, I didn’t even have to double it over for the staple to hold the screen securely in place without tearing and then used a thin trim to secure it firmly to the door. I tested the screen by allowing the door to swing shut whilst holding a long piece of 2 X 4 with the end of the wood being a few inches beyond and outside the frame. The screen hit it quite hard and bounced back leaving no sign of any damage. The manufactures claim of light pressure will resist tears is quite justified and will not prevent a child or pet from running through it, assuming the space between the wood frame is big enough of course. But the added thickness and strength (and fire resistant for added bonus) has convinced me of its durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pet D-Fence screen I originally bought regular screen to do my storm doors and windows. My dog tore all of them. I was looking around the store and found the Pet D-fence screening. My dog cannot rip it when he jumps and puts his paws on the screen. This is a great product and it's worth the price. it would cost more money replacing the screens that the pets rip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best window screen ever I used this screen to replace an old metallic screen. This screen installed quickly, and with the spline in place, it's as tight as a drum. The look is neat and professional. This screen is so tough that I had a hard time cutting it with a sharp knife after installing the spline. I stopped at one point and sharpened the knife with a diamond stone, and I still had difficulty cutting through the screen. [Heavy duty scissors worked well for the initial lay out of the screen.] The HD video at https://youtu.be/wJX3M8bGAnA is a good, concise tutorial. The only thing I would add is that using a steel straight edge when cutting the excess screen may help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pet Resistand Insect Screen Had to replace my screen in on the sliding glass door due to my dog scratching at the screen door. It tore and now it had a big hole big enough for her to get in. So it was time to replace. It was a no brainier to replace it with a heavy duty that will last long when my dog scratches at the screen. The instruction was simple and easy to follow if you haven't done it before. My suggestion is to replace the spline (the rubber piece that holds the screen in the frame. If you had the screen a long time the spline gets dried out and stretched and it harder to put back in. Buy a new one, it will make your life easier. The screen is diffidently thicker and being thicker it a little darker than the standard thickness. It less light coming in during the daylight hours. No big issue for me. Over all I am very please with the results and now I do not have to worry about the dog jumping on it and tearing up the screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER STRONG SCREEN AND EASY TO WORK WITH This screen is super strong and easy to work with. This size is perfect to rescreen a patio screen door. Just trim to the size you need. My door is a very odd size so I decided to rescreen since I had trouble finding a replacement door. I was surprised at how easy it was to do and really happy with the results. The screen is thick and strong and has already proven to be pet resistant when my cat stuck his claws in it! Very pleased and highly recommend!
