security door

Hi guys just wanting some help I have an existing security door that’s needs new wire but I don’t want to put it on with the rubber strip I want to make a frame and screw it on the door like with a heavier fly wire

Re: security door

Hi @Tinyfeather60,


Many thanks for your question, I'd be glad to assist. The easiest way I can advise to securely attach the screen is to sandwich the new heavier fly wire between the door frame and Metal Mate 10 x 3mm 3m Aluminium Flat Bar. You could screw the frame in place or use a Trojan 2 Way Rivet Gun set to get a very nice finish. This would fix the wire securely and would prevent it from being pulled out un-like the rubber strip method.


If you wished to build a full frame that could be achieved using aluminium tubing. It would be used in the same fashion to sandwich the wire to the door.


Please let me know if you need further advice or had any questions.
