Customer Reviews

VERY tough screen, not too bad to install, a little darker than standard charcoal screeningI have a new indoor cat and needed to rescreen my front screen door to protect my 8 month old kitten against some of the roaming 15 pound felines running about . I thought about using aluminum screen and while it's tougher than fiberglass, it still has disadvantages because it dents, can still be torn, isn't intended to be pet proof, the wires can get pulled apart and it can be sort of a pain to install if you are not experienced/careful.Pet D-Fence Pros:1.) VERY tough nylon or heavy duty fiberglass material - far tougher than I thought it would be.2.) Decent transparency. It's darker than standard charcoal fiberglass screen but it also makes it harder for people walking by to peek into my front door during the day but no so much at night3.) Easy to install relative to aluminum screen and more tolerant of screen spline roller slips than either fiberglass or aluminum screen4.) Simple tools required for installation - screen roller, new screen bead if required, a slot blade screwdriver, razor knife with new blade or you can farm it out to the local hardware store5.) Adds a lot of stability and rigidity to a screen frame6.) (NEW) This screen deflects 90% of the sunlight and heat away from my front door. See my update comments at the end of this reviewCons:None really but see the section below on "things to know".Things to know:1.) I saw some comments from other reviewers that this screen is too thick to install. That may happen if you have very narrow screen channels but there are techniques to try before abandoning hope. You may actually need smaller diameter screen spline.2.) Another approach to try rather than buying new screen spline is to simply press about one inch of the existing spline in place with regular slot screw driver blade at a corner and then gently pull the spline to stretch it, reducing it's diameter and then roll it into place with a spline roller - that's what I did.3.) I did not list the extra thickness as a "con" because D-Fence screen is made to be tougher/thicker.4.) Be aware that when stretching the screen spline it is important to use a very stable work table. Having a second set of hands and strong forearms also helps with installation. I did mine solo and it came out nearly perfect with patience5.) The D-Fence product does darkens the look of the screen and some of the outward visibility even in daylight because the mesh is thicker. It's fine with me because I want protection for my cat and I think the darker color looks fine but you might not agree.6.) I used a few small wood shop style 2" spring clips with a wooden ruler to hold the screen in place so I would not scratch the screen frame when setting the bead. Other options are using medium sized metal binder clips used in offices for large stacks of paper or having a second person simply maintain pressure by gently pulling the screen tight.The photo below shows standard charcoal fiberglass screen on the left and the D-Fence screen on the right.In summary, I really like this product, ordered two more rolls from Amazon.. I have NOT accepted ANY discount or free product for my review.5/30/16 update - The screen easily withstood a mauling from a large neighborhood cat two nights ago. Not a mark on it after the other 15 pound cat climbed half way up the screen. One other interesting side note. My home faces east and my main entry door gets REALLY hot in the morning sun with a standard screen in place. With the pet d-fence screen in place, the door never gets above about 100 degrees - the heavier mesh reflects all the heat. That latter fact alone is enough to get me to buy this product.7/16/16 update - I used Pet-Defence screen on a rear house screen after an local cat clawed my original Marvin fiberglass screen up trying to get into a fight with my indoor cat. Last night the same outdoor cat launched another attack at my cat who was sitting in the window with the Pet-Defense screen. The other cat bounced off the heavy duty pet screen. I was sitting on the sofa 5 feet away and it was loud and pretty funny. No damage to the new Pet-Defence screen but the other cat has to be scratching it's head wondering what happened. I bought a new, larger screen roller and I "pre-roll" the Pet-Defence into the screen notch with the convex side and then add the spline pressing it into place with the concave side of the roller. Great screen for defusing cat fights! 5Stands up to climbing cats!I have two cats, one is an avid climber. They are inside only cats (I live near open desert that is full of coyotes), but I like to leave the door open with the screen door secured shut so they can enjoy the air and sounds of outside, but I did not trust the standard screen material to stand up to their claws. Damage is one thing, but I definitely did not want them to tear the screen out enough to escape the house when I was in another room. So I was hoping to find a screen material stout enough to give me the peace of mind to keep the door open during the pleasant months, so I gave this one a try.Soon after installation I heard the familiar sound of claws testing out the new screen door. Despite even finding one cat 6 feet off the ground climbing up the screen, there was not a hint of damage to the screen material! Its has also held in the sliding door frame very well, even with the weight of the cat suspended on it. No bulges or sags!The screen takes some elbow grease to install- definitely invest a few bucks in a metal roller- but I think it is easier to get a clean and taught install with this screen than with the standard stuff, maybe because it is thicker and doesn't get stretched out of shape as easily. I found rolling the screen into the groove with the round edge of the roller first, then using short quick strokes to push in the spline with the concave side made the installation go the fastest.I used a 0.135 dia spline (it was oddly hard to search for that size on here but the model number ended up being Prime-Line Products P 7631) which worked perfectly. It was a tight fit but not impossible and seems to hold the screen in nice and strong. As near as I can measure the original spline in my door was .140 inch dia., so I used one just the tiniest bit smaller for the new material.Its definitely a darker, more visible screen than the standard ones, but the peace of mind is worth it and then some. Plus it actually looks nice when the screen is clean and straight, not all bulging out and full of holes and rips like so many screens I have had in the past.I have had it installed for over 4 months now and there are still no rips or tears anywhere and I have not had to adjust anything despite cats climbing, scratching at it, and bouncing off of it while chasing their toys. The fact that this stuff is only a few dollars more expensive than the standard fiberglass screen is astonishing, I think it is worth many times the price! 5Good but need to consider...NO DOUBT The product delivers on its promise - it holds up strong to cats and dogs and the occasional (drunk) aunt that walks into your screen door.BUT...BUT...there are two things you need to know ahead- This is a DARKER screen than most are accustomed to with thin fiberglass filaments. You may not be happy with the results. (worse at noon than at night)- This is due to the thickness of the poly material that makes up the mesh. Which raises another question...- When Installing, you will need to use SPLINE slightly smaller to make up for the extra thickness of the poly screen (.180 vs. .200) etc. Basically size down for the thicker fabric.Amazing stuff. Not as easy to install or see through perhaps, but it will hold up to the biggest happiest dog and/or happiest drunk on you back porch.Listing at 4 stars so people can read the catches....Peace love and dirty hands... 4Prrrrrfect screen material for my patio door!This fit my patio screen door perfectly. I have cats that just claw through normal screen material, and this product is strong enough to withstand even the most frustrated cat. I never have installed a screen before, so i watched a youtube video, and i also bought the wood handle screen tool (instead of the plastic one). I had to do this solo, so to help hold the screen material in place while i was attaching it i used folder clips and it made it alot easier to work with. I just removed them as i was getting near them, and made the whole process a snap. Would highly recommend this to anyone else. 5Vinyl window. Replace flimsy screen material in Casement Window.Our newly rescued Climbing Maine Coon kitty climbs right up the screen across and back down again. The Property managers replaced our nice old wooden windows with vinyl ones. The old window screen sat over the entire window inside the frame on the outside. They were made from Aluminum.One of the new vinyl windows was a Casement Window which replaced a double hung window. This is the one kitty likes to climb.The Vinyl window screen on the Casement was not secure at all. They were very loose and could pull out very easily. The screen material was thin and tore very easily with sharp claws.I purchased the Adfors Fiberglass screen and the Prime-Line Products P 7631 Screen Retainer Spline to solve the flimsy screen material issue. To secure the frame I used double sided tape and white Vinyl repair tape around the perimeter.I did have quite a hard time putting the screen in. I have all the right tools and have done this job on Aluminum frames before with privacy screen material.The Fiberglass screen is significantly heavier pliable than the cheap flimsy nothing screen that came with the windows. The plastic frame is also not built for the heavier screen. This became an issue meant that I had some buckling while keeping the material tight. I slightly over did it with the tension. It was a lot harder to gauge tension with this plastic frame. The screen retainer spline Prime-Line Products P 7631 was also very very tight. I used a hair drier to warm it up as I was feeding it in. Without this method I would have spent all day on the job.Because the fiberglass screen is so thick it doesn't go into the spine recess the same way as the lighter flimsy screen material. It curves over a bit more. Keep your knife at around 45 degrees when cutting. My first attempt I had my knife at a very acute angle and it cut the screen on the other side of the spline recess as it was a little higher (because of the curve) than I expected. Frustrating! Lucky I had enough spill over material to re-do it.The over tensioning is a beginners mistake. It was harder to gauge the tension with the heavier screen material and a cheap plastic frame. The Fiberglass material itself is quite tough. I had trouble cutting through it on the first pass with a sharp box cutter when it came to trimming down after install. Make sure you keep your fingers safe as it is easier for the blade to slip off this material! I did cut myself.Maine Coon can now climb and we can be of peace of mind.Not the most elegant install but I got there in the end. Done! 4Heavy, strong fabricReplaced the damaged screen on my sliding patio door. Incredibly easy to install. The screen comes on a roll, so I removed the old screen and spline, cleaned and wiped down the door frame, then unrolled the fabric onto the door. It's heavy material, so it didn't keep rolling up again like wrapping paper, for example. I bought the .120" spline (25') and a spline tool separately, not as a kit.I started the spline at the middle of the bottom of the frame, and started to work my way around. It really helps to keep pressure on the spline while you're applying it--it thins it a bit and it'll be difficult to get into the groove, otherwise. Used one hand for pulling on the spline and keeping the fabric slightly taught (it'll tighten up as you insert spline around the frame), and the other for rolling the spline tool. Very, very easy, even for me. I consider myself somewhat clumsy, and figured I'd screw up this job and have to restart, but it came out almost perfectly.The only problem was trimming the leftover material after finishing the splining. You need a very sharp tool to make it easy (maybe an X-acto knife), but be careful not to trim the fabric on the inside of the spline, or you'll undo all your work. I had a couple close calls, but avoided disaster. The fabric seems sturdy enough to keep my cats in, and I've seen a photo of a cat hanging from it, so I think it should hold up much better than the thin stuff that came with the door. 5The jackpot!This screen is truly amazing. I literally had no screens left intact in any window that my dogs could reach. They paw at them and pull the screen with their nails and I end up with big slices that they then decide to sit and play with until they've torn holes. I have 2 60 pound boxers and they have not even pulled one single square in this screen. I was so skeptical when I ordered it, I figured at the time it was only $12 for a small roll, it'll do 2, maybe 3 Windows. If it didn't work, I wasn't out a lot of money, but if it did work, I might have just hit the jackpot. And so far this stuff is a total jackpot. I believe completely that my dogs will push out the screen frame before they tear the actual screen itself. When the nicer weather arrives here in New England, I will be replacing every single screen in my house and in my camper with this, I have already told all of my other dog owner friends about it and will continue to recommend it to everyone 5Amazing and well worth it!I have had this in my front and back door screens for well over a year now and it is amazing! I thought my indoor cat would outgrow climbing on the screens, and that I would be wasting my money. Not even close. He is two years old, 15 pounds, and still jumps up when he sees a moth on the screen (which happens often in the summer when the doors are open), or a stray cat on our porch, or a bird in the bushes on our deck. He hangs there a while, too, and when he gets down I look at the screen and you would never even know he was there. They are a little darker than a regular screen, but it doesn't look odd and you can see through them clearly...see picture below. I reused the same screen spline (plastic string that holds screen in place), but it was much tougher to get it to reinsert and stay in place due to the thicker material of the screen. 5Sturdy. A bit dark.Thicker than a typical screen but installed with ease.It's also a bit darker than I'd like, but I don't think it's going to be problematic once I get used to it. I was aware of the darker color per the reviews.Installed a pet door in the screen for my cat who likes to lounge out on my fire escape. Had no problems with that either, as pertained to the screening.In the included photos, you can get a sense of the darker shade of the screen as it compares to the metal mesh screen of the pet door. You can also use these photos to play a game called 'find my cat'. 4And this was my first time doing this and it was really easy to do the 2 of hisThis came on time and was what I ordered. That being said. I had actually just rescreened a window frame and a door frame for my friend. And he had bought 25 ft of regular strength screen and the spline it said to buy wit it. And this was my first time doing this and it was really easy to do the 2 of his. But then It got this super strong stuff in the next night and went to go put it in my door frame. Thinking it would take about the same amount of time. Well think again buddy.This stuff is really thick and heavy so I recommend doing it somewhere that the hole frame is resting on something like a big table. I had to do mine between my workbench and an old dresser I'm refinishing. Also make sure you have a bunch of good quality clamps. I tried doing mine twice b4 deciding to clamp it all around so it would stop shifting as i creased the screen into the channel. And your going to want to have a good sturdy screen tool for this I used the little plastic 1 i used earlier on my friends but it was tough going and took lots of time. Once I got it so the screen was straight and even on all sides it was sagging a little and kept pulling it inwardly as i creased so I pulled it taught and clamped it in 6 places. Then I proceeded to crease yet again and just pushing this stuff in the channel was a bit tough and I had to go over and over it to make sure it was seated correctly.Then I grabbed the spleen i had on hand and it was way to thick. So luckily enough the old spleen came out fine except for about a 5 in peace that broke off in the beginning. So I had to reuse that and even that was super tough to push in with the screen into the channel. I hadn't put all my weight on this crappy plastic roller I was using. Just to get it to sit in there never mind pushing it all the way down. That took me going over and over it a bunch of times pushing with all I had. And I used a flat head for the corners just pull it along and push it in at the same time and you'll be fine. But I recommend taking out the spleen you have in the piece your doing 1st and going to the hardware store and getting one slightly smaller to save yourself a headache.Now it took me an hour and a half to so the window frame and door of my buddies. And it took me 3 and a half to 4 hours to finally get it right with this thicker screen. It definitely was a learning lesson in the difference between regular screen and this stuff.Now all that being said my cat scratched a hole in the bottom of the old screen which is why I'm was rescreening it in the first place. So I wanted to get something I knew wouldn't tear from being scratched at by my cat and dog. This stuff has only been in for a day. But just from installing it Is can tell how tough it is. There were a couple of times I went off track wit the roller and ended up pushing into the screen with my full 279 lbs on it and it didn't even stretch out a little. So I'm guessing it should hold up to these two animals for a long time..But like I said lay it out roll side down so it isn't rolling back up on you grab a corner and make sure the screen is straight and start clamping around the frame while making sure it's pulled tight and still straight. Then use your tool to push the screen in the channel and grab the spleen and set it in and make sure you stretch it a little with one hand as your pushing it in with the the other. This will make it a little thinner when going in and will fill back in after your done.I like how strong this is and think it's going to last a while. So yes I would recommend to anyone with pets or whoever wants a screen that can take a beating. But time will tell and I will update my post accordingly. 5

It's heavy material, so it didn't keep rolling up again like wrapping paper, for example. I bought the .120" spline (25') and a spline tool separately, not as a kit.I started the spline at the middle of the bottom of the frame, and started to work my way around. It really helps to keep pressure on the spline while you're applying it--it thins it a bit and it'll be difficult to get into the groove, otherwise. Used one hand for pulling on the spline and keeping the fabric slightly taught (it'll tighten up as you insert spline around the frame), and the other for rolling the spline tool. Very, very easy, even for me. I consider myself somewhat clumsy, and figured I'd screw up this job and have to restart, but it came out almost perfectly.The only problem was trimming the leftover material after finishing the splining. You need a very sharp tool to make it easy (maybe an X-acto knife), but be careful not to trim the fabric on the inside of the spline, or you'll undo all your work. I had a couple close calls, but avoided disaster. The fabric seems sturdy enough to keep my cats in, and I've seen a photo of a cat hanging from it, so I think it should hold up much better than the thin stuff that came with the door. 5The jackpot!This screen is truly amazing. I literally had no screens left intact in any window that my dogs could reach. They paw at them and pull the screen with their nails and I end up with big slices that they then decide to sit and play with until they've torn holes. I have 2 60 pound boxers and they have not even pulled one single square in this screen. I was so skeptical when I ordered it, I figured at the time it was only $12 for a small roll, it'll do 2, maybe 3 Windows. If it didn't work, I wasn't out a lot of money, but if it did work, I might have just hit the jackpot. And so far this stuff is a total jackpot. I believe completely that my dogs will push out the screen frame before they tear the actual screen itself. When the nicer weather arrives here in New England, I will be replacing every single screen in my house and in my camper with this, I have already told all of my other dog owner friends about it and will continue to recommend it to everyone 5Amazing and well worth it!I have had this in my front and back door screens for well over a year now and it is amazing! I thought my indoor cat would outgrow climbing on the screens, and that I would be wasting my money. Not even close. He is two years old, 15 pounds, and still jumps up when he sees a moth on the screen (which happens often in the summer when the doors are open), or a stray cat on our porch, or a bird in the bushes on our deck. He hangs there a while, too, and when he gets down I look at the screen and you would never even know he was there. They are a little darker than a regular screen, but it doesn't look odd and you can see through them clearly...see picture below. I reused the same screen spline (plastic string that holds screen in place), but it was much tougher to get it to reinsert and stay in place due to the thicker material of the screen. 5Sturdy. A bit dark.Thicker than a typical screen but installed with ease.It's also a bit darker than I'd like, but I don't think it's going to be problematic once I get used to it. I was aware of the darker color per the reviews.Installed a pet door in the screen for my cat who likes to lounge out on my fire escape. Had no problems with that either, as pertained to the screening.In the included photos, you can get a sense of the darker shade of the screen as it compares to the metal mesh screen of the pet door. You can also use these photos to play a game called 'find my cat'. 4And this was my first time doing this and it was really easy to do the 2 of hisThis came on time and was what I ordered. That being said. I had actually just rescreened a window frame and a door frame for my friend. And he had bought 25 ft of regular strength screen and the spline it said to buy wit it. And this was my first time doing this and it was really easy to do the 2 of his. But then It got this super strong stuff in the next night and went to go put it in my door frame. Thinking it would take about the same amount of time. Well think again buddy.This stuff is really thick and heavy so I recommend doing it somewhere that the hole frame is resting on something like a big table. I had to do mine between my workbench and an old dresser I'm refinishing. Also make sure you have a bunch of good quality clamps. I tried doing mine twice b4 deciding to clamp it all around so it would stop shifting as i creased the screen into the channel. And your going to want to have a good sturdy screen tool for this I used the little plastic 1 i used earlier on my friends but it was tough going and took lots of time. Once I got it so the screen was straight and even on all sides it was sagging a little and kept pulling it inwardly as i creased so I pulled it taught and clamped it in 6 places. Then I proceeded to crease yet again and just pushing this stuff in the channel was a bit tough and I had to go over and over it to make sure it was seated correctly.Then I grabbed the spleen i had on hand and it was way to thick. So luckily enough the old spleen came out fine except for about a 5 in peace that broke off in the beginning. So I had to reuse that and even that was super tough to push in with the screen into the channel. I hadn't put all my weight on this crappy plastic roller I was using. Just to get it to sit in there never mind pushing it all the way down. That took me going over and over it a bunch of times pushing with all I had. And I used a flat head for the corners just pull it along and push it in at the same time and you'll be fine. But I recommend taking out the spleen you have in the piece your doing 1st and going to the hardware store and getting one slightly smaller to save yourself a headache.Now it took me an hour and a half to so the window frame and door of my buddies. And it took me 3 and a half to 4 hours to finally get it right with this thicker screen. It definitely was a learning lesson in the difference between regular screen and this stuff.Now all that being said my cat scratched a hole in the bottom of the old screen which is why I'm was rescreening it in the first place. So I wanted to get something I knew wouldn't tear from being scratched at by my cat and dog. This stuff has only been in for a day. But just from installing it Is can tell how tough it is. There were a couple of times I went off track wit the roller and ended up pushing into the screen with my full 279 lbs on it and it didn't even stretch out a little. So I'm guessing it should hold up to these two animals for a long time..But like I said lay it out roll side down so it isn't rolling back up on you grab a corner and make sure the screen is straight and start clamping around the frame while making sure it's pulled tight and still straight. Then use your tool to push the screen in the channel and grab the spleen and set it in and make sure you stretch it a little with one hand as your pushing it in with the the other. This will make it a little thinner when going in and will fill back in after your done.I like how strong this is and think it's going to last a while. So yes I would recommend to anyone with pets or whoever wants a screen that can take a beating. But time will tell and I will update my post accordingly. 5
