No. Every FlexScreen is custom-made to your exact window dimensions, so it is essential to measure your windows carefully. Please see our HOW TO page for printable instructions and detailed step-by-step videos that will guide you through the process. As always, our customer service team is happy to help!
Currently our screens can be manufactured to the following dimensions:
WIDTH: minimum 9" - maximum 55"
HEIGHT: minimum 9" - maximum 80".
This makes our maximum screen dimensions 55" wide x 80" high.
FlexScreen is made from phosphate enhanced spring steel coated with an exterior grade, high performance PVC which provides outstanding scratch and weather resistance. We offer a variety of screen meshes.
We offer four types of screen material: Standard, FlexView Clean, FlexView Tuff, and FlexView Solar. Click here to see our screen mesh options, or contact our support team for information on custom requests.
All window screens are made for the sole purpose of keeping bugs out of your home - not to hold anything in. Any screen can be pushed out with enough force, so always exercise caution with children and pets around open windows.
For FlexScreen, specifically, a lot depends on what type of window you have. It's either very hard, hard, or not so hard. If your screens are sitting inside of a screen track on the inside of your home (as in casement windows or other crank-out type windows), FlexScreen would be extremely difficult to push out. In windows with screen tracks on the outside of the home, it would require a little less force. If there were no screen tracks and our screen was simply being held by tension in the window opening on the outside of your home, it would be relatively easy to push out.
No. Our screens are produced as squares or rectangles only in sizes up to 55" wide by 80" high.
We do not make entire sliding or screen door units. However, our maximum screen size is 55" wide x 80" high so, in most cases, we can manufacture a screen large enough to replace the one in your current door or slider. One thing to consider is whether your existing door or slider's screen pocket (the channel in which your screen will sit) is compatible with our flexible frame. If the pocket is at least 5/16" WIDE, our screens will fit! It would be helpful for you to review the measuring videos and the printable guide on our HOW TO page to understand how FlexScreen fits and works in different applications. These tools will give you a great indicator of whether FlexScreen is a fit for your needs.
If you have pets in your home, we suggest upgrading to our Flexview Tuff mesh. It’s more rip and tear resistant and will hold up better to our four-legged friends! (However, we cannot guarantee that a determined animal couldn’t still damage it.) You can see pictures and descriptions of all of our mesh options here.
