TOP TIP

If you plan on installing and uninstalling on a regular basis, then we would recommend using velcro to install this at the start. If you use the small pin tacks then uninstalling is a lot more difficult.

By using velcro it makes the removal and storage a great deal faster and also helps protect your door frame.

Flux Phenom Magnetic Screen Door FAQ

Question - How long does it take to install the mesh door?

Answer - Around 15-30 minutes is the average installation time. It is also easier to install with two people and of course that little bit faster. A small step ladder is also very useful for most people so as you can easily get to the top of the foor frame.

Question - How Many Magnets do you get and are they strong?

Answer -  The magnets are strong and buyers say they work really well. They are rod shaped and form a magnetic strip down the center of the mesh. There are 12 magnets in total ( 6 x 1.5" and 6 x 7" magnets)

Question - Will it work on just one side of a sliding door?

Answer - Yes it will though you will have to fold it, or cut it carefully to size. Ideally it is always better to fold rather than cut which can damage the screen unless you know how to hem it.

Question -  Can pets get through the door easily?

Answer - Going in and out will be instinctive for most cats and dogs. With others you may have to show them how to get through a couple of times and after that they will be fine

Question - What type of mesh is used?

Answer - The screen is made from a polyester mesh.
