Answer

No this is a smaller frame for making window screens. It would not be sturdy enough to use as a sliding screen door.

Don’t use the .175” like their own website recommends it’s too thick. I know first hand. Should have listened to the first guy that recommended .140” . Spline box even said for patio screen spline

The frame was definitely stronger than the one that I needed to replace. I was pleased with the frame length so I could make custom-sized screens. It cut easily with a hacksaw. When building a larger door screen, I had a portion bend slightly but was able to straighten with my hands. I was pleased it did not bend to the point of breaking like the prior screen frames.

I used this product to screen in my back porch. While it has some advantages, there are some drawbacks you should be made aware. The frame works fairly well in small to average window sized openings. The problems comes when trying to use this product for large openings such as mine (5' X 5' and larger). When rolling the screen and spline into the track, if you pull it too tight the frame will bow inward and distort. To lose and the screen flaps in the breeze. After 3-4 tries, I finally was able to find the sweet spot and finish the product. It's fairly sturdy, I can't see how it would bend and crease unless damaged. One of my first attempts distorted the frame significantly and did not break it. I simply removed the spline and re-positioned the screen. Last night we had a pretty good storm roll through. Winds in excess of 50mph and the screens held up fine (Phifer / Bettervue / Insect Screen) . Tip. When rolling the screen into the groove, roll one side then jump over and roll the parallel side. Then complete the remaining two other sides. This will help prevent the screen from pulling the frame out of square. Last tip, if you decide to use it for large openings like I did, buy some thin wood stock or cut your own to brace the inside of the frame when rolling the screen in. This way, I was able to pull the screen very tight without bowing in the frame. When I removed the bracing the screen did bow in but was able to easily full it back when I secured it to the opening. For my project, I fastened the screen with white painted pan head screws to a painted cedar railing.

I built two screens with these frames, only tools needed were a hacksaw, razor blade knife, and screen spline roller. These were made using "sunscreen", which is a heavier screen material than the usual standard screen, so i used a thinner spline (.125") which worked out well. The frames are aluminum which makes them easy to cut, but you also have to be careful not to bend them. I also added a cross brace - just another piece of frame - to add some strength and prevent bowing since these windows are over 6 feet tall. If you buy the framing in a kit, you'll get all the stuff you need. But if you buy individual framing pieces, make sure to get the correct size plastic corners, the spring clips to hold the finished screen securely in the window, cross brace connectors, spline, and roller. It's frustrating to have make another trip to the store for a $1.38 bag of parts. Also - measure very carefully. It's also frustrating to finish a screen and discover it's 3/16" too wide. And yes, if you were wondering, I made both of those mistakes. It's a relatively easy project and the materials and tools are all inexpensive.

Used it for a talk screen in a storm door. Product was as described, but had a little more give than other pre-built screens that typically come with windows/doors which made the screen flex some in the door. Not a huge deal.

Not for use with solar screen
I spent about $60.00 to build a solar screen for a neighbor. This used to be 3/8" x 3/4" x 84". The problem I'm having is the only spline what will fit is the 0.125" spline. But the channel for this thinner frame (5/16") is too small for 0.125" spline and solar screen. This is corporate greed pure and simple. They probably saved 1/10 of one cent per rail! So sad. I had to tell my neighbor "sorry no luck" and because I've already cut the frame and solar screen, it is not returnable. So I'm having to eat $60.00 I've looked on line for 3/8" size but I can only find a box of 20 rails. I only need 4 so it's just not happening.
