You can still enjoy high functionality of both bays by moving the screens according to their railings. If your garage doesnt have enough room for sliding screen doors use pull down screens -- just like window shades. The cassette is mounted at the top of the door opening and you can simply pull down the screen all the way to the bottom. My personal favorite is the roll-up screens; they dont use framing and are perfect for combining with other garage door hardware. When I want to have privacy and maximum security I simply close my steel door shut. As soon as I want to work inside my garage I simply open the door and roll down the screen. It also has a zippered opening -- I can walk in and out while the screen is down -- and it is very practical to use. When you dont need the screen door simply roll it up and you are all set; no additional storage space or handlings needed.
For added protection make sure your home security door hinges are recessed this will minimize the gap between the door and the frame making the door more difficult to jimmy. The home security screen door should have stainless steel mesh and be attached to the door frame using either stainless steel screws or Pac clamps. The ideal home security mesh is either marine grade 316 mesh or 304-grade mesh. There are several mesh grades available on the market so check the strength rating to make sure it is at least equivalent to the 316 or 304 grade mesh. Users of the different grades of mesh will argue over which is stronger but apply the above check and you can not go wrong.
While all doors provide some form of security barrier just because a product is marketed as a home security product it does not mean it is. In fact when it comes to home security many doors marketed as "home security screens" fall way short of security industry standards. A point well noted by the National Security Screens Association (NSSA) and the Australian Security Industry Association Limited. So how do you pick a good home security screen door from a bad one? What do you need to look for in a good security screen door? When purchasing a home security screen door there are several features of the door which need to be considered including the materials the door frames are made from grille strength mesh type the number of hinges and the locking devise used.
Use a polyurethane glue and a brush to attach the wood support pieces together and then clamp and allow to dry completely. Once the glue joints are completely dry you can sand the door and apply a stain and clear finish or paint the door if desired. Adding the Screen to the Door Laying the door flat on the work table measure the overall opening and cut a piece of screen material to the proper size leaving several inches around the edges to make installation easier which will be trimmed later. Lay the screen over the top of the door frame and staple it to the top of the frame pulling it tightly towards the bottom of the door.
