Screen Material & Screen Cloth
Screen material choices today are getting to the point that you need to be a scientist to figure out all your options. It was not so long ago that all we had to choose from was aluminum and fiberglass cloth. Before that the only choice was steel.
Now we still have tried & tested fiberglass screening but in a wide variety of widths and sizes. There are different thicknesses for window and doors as well as porches.
If you are troubled by tiny insects such as "noseeums", there is a fiberglass cloth for that. There is even a fiberglass cloth that supposed to block out pollens to help with allergy sufferers. I even seen companies in China making fiberglass in a rainbow of different colours.
Good old aluminum screening
is still around and you have a few choices to make there, black aluminum wire or bright wire. Of all the materials it seems to be the one that is falling behind in development. Of course some people still swear by black aluminum as being the most invisible of cloth.
There is copper screening
which is an old material. Its very expensive but a good choice if you live in an area near the sea.
Mosquito repellent for those who enjoy camping.
Finally to hold all this cloth in you generally
need a lot of spline.
And of course there are many shapes and sizes for that!
