The whole subject of screening requires careful consideration. With the variety of window and door types used in today's custom residence, there is an entire design exercise just to address the screening; along with the potential addition of roll down shades, blackout shades or sun shades.
More often screens are selectively used in each room to assure cross ventilation without necessarily screening every opening. When considering screens for steel windows and doors there is a concern with adding a screen and taking away from the simplicity of the steel products character.
Sliding doors are best fitted with sliding screen doors. Swing doors are also best fitted with pocketing sliding screen doors. Because of the thin swing door elements, adding a swing screen door will add serious bulk to the sightlines of the product. Windows are screened with narrow metal hinged screens, sliding pocket screens or pull down roll screens.
