ShelterLogic Garage Screen - Fits Single Garage, 8ft.W x 7ft.H
Loved It after setting up
We used this to turn our garage into a smokers lounge/bar/man-cave. I was a hard fit it wouldn't go all the way across the opening, so I made a 4in wooden frame. after that it was easy to put up with a friend. I've had it for 3-4 years now and use the garage as the main entrance for my family of 7. It's time to replace it. And I'll buy it from here again.
heavy duty material
daytime privacy (when the sun is out you can't see in)

Window tot the world
This was one of the best purchases made this year! Was helpful for pets, kids, and turned the back garage into a patio room. Just was plain good! The screen is heavy duty aand was easy to keep clean also. I use my table saw in the garage for home improvements. This made it easy to keep an eye on the kids playing and my woodworking.

NOT 8' x 7'
I bought this item for my garage expecting that it would work for my 8' x 7' garage door. The unit is too wide by about 8 to 9 inches. When I put up the Hook & Loop tape as directed it was the right fit. It has adhesive that sticks to the wall and I set it right up against the garage door track brackets. The tape is 1 1/2" wide so you get a good seal but the actual screen is 8 to 9 inches wider than the garage door track brackets and I have to gather up the excess screen in the middle and fold it over.
I took it down and had to have it sewed with a seam in the center to get it to fit the opening. Additionally the Zipper pulls on both sides can come off of the Zippers at the top so I had to have them stitched closed at the top so the pulls could not come off the zippers.
The screen comes with a long pocket at the bottom for the supplied pipe to be inserted for weight and keep the bottom from flapping. The supplied pipe is only 4' long and is not worth using because of the pipe length and the fold/seam I had to do to make the screen fit my opening. I took some # 5 rebar cut it into 1' length - painted them and used them for a while then replaced them with sand and sewed up the ends. This works just fine to keep the bottom in place but makes rolling the screen up in place imposable.
I do not recommend this product and would not buy any more. I purchased material for the other door and made it myself to fit my needs.
