There are 2 types unsupported screen doors which are supported by nothing more than the screen itself and supported screen storm doors which are usually partially supported by the frame of the screen or storm door itself. Unsupported screen doors are recommended for smaller and less aggressive pets only. A pet that is too large or is aggressive is more likely to damage the sensitive screen when trying to enter or leave the house. Partially supported storm doors such as those made by Hale are fastened to the bottom and side of the frame. Of course this means that the unit can only be installed on the bottom left or right hand side of the door. Pet patio doors are also not likely to have locks the logic being that locked doors will encourage your pet to paw or scratch your screen instead.
Make sure that the installer has many years experience and has been trained by the manufacturer. It is also important for the screen door company to have a valid contractors license depending on if your state requires it by law. A contractors license usually shows that the company is serious about staying in business for a number of years and it is protection for the consumer. Finally the service and warranty claims of the screen door company should also be taken into consideration. If there is a lifetime warranty on the parts excluding the screen material then who will service the screen door if a component breaks.
Features include powder coating in various colors screen guides constructed from self-lubricating plastics adjustable spring tension corrosion-resistant and pet-friendly reinforced screens. ODL Inc.

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.
