What size spline to use ?

by Ron
(FL, USA)

I just replaced my aluminum screen with fiberglass screen. The old spline was solid and measured 3/16" with a 3/16" channel. I purchased Pro-Line 0.185 (3/16" ribbed) and it does not fit tight. I can push the screen out easily.

What size of Pro-Line should I be using to make a tight fit? Remember I went from Aluminum Screen to Fiberglass screen if that makes a difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

You could try 0.225 inch diameter round polyfoam which would be the next size up from 0.180 inch,

That should hold the screen in tight but still be easy enough to roll it in

Going from fiberglass to aluminum normally would not make that much of a difference.

What would make a difference is if the new material was a lot thinner than the old
