This is the best sliding screen door you can find — out classing the competition with its unusual strength and durability. It is made of heavy duty extruded aluminum frame — compare to most flimsy and jam-prone screens that come standard with sliding doors. This DIY screen door kit includes 4 adjustable steel rollers, and a flush mount auto latch handle with lock: all hardware and rollers have a limited lifetime warranty. Each kit comes made-to-size with your choice of frame color, and optional mesh upgrade: we recommend super screen for increased durability — it is 3x stronger than fiberglass.
Our custom screen door locks are designed to fit doors installed on the OUTSIDE of your house. Allow 1/8" manufacturing tolerance.
Coastal package available: Stainless steel rollers, screws, and latch hardware is ideal for coastal climates where normal doors will rust and fail to operate.

Why Everyone Needs a Made-To-Order Screen Door
No door opening is the same size. Even “standard-size” door openings will have some variance due to installation and other factors. Choosing a made-to-size screen door will ensure it fits securely to keep insects out and smoothly slides open and closed – without jamming. You also can choose from a specialty mesh to get more value for your money and can choose from 6 standard colors (more custom colors) to match your home’s trim or door frame color.
Specialty Screen Mesh – Get More For Your Money
Standard fiberglass insect mesh offers basic insect protection. Specialty mesh provides more benefits to increase comfort, energy efficiency, durability, and more. Here are some of our most popular mesh types and what they can offer you:
- BetterVue- Better outward visibility to enjoy your view
- Super screen - more durability (3x stronger)
- Pet screen - durability against pet-wear (7x stronger)
- No-See-Um/Tiny Mesh (20 x 20) - smaller holes to keep out no-see-ums and tiny insects
- Solar Screen - reduce heat, glare, and increase energy efficiency (90% also provides tiny mesh benefits.
- Aluminum - increased durability

What Makes The Hercules Sliding Screen Door The Most Durable?
Its heavy-duty parts and design. The Samson is the best sliding screen door on the market because it is made from a dual-wall aluminum frame. When compared to standard screen doors with roll-form frames, the Samson’s frame won’t bend and become misshapen like these other doors. The Samson is constructed with highly durable screen mesh that is secured with flat spline which makes the screen harder to push out of the frame.

The Hercules sliding door arrived perfectly sized to requested dimensions. I used a rubber mallet to assemble the frame. Filing the edges of the corners made for a flush fit. With the screen installed, the door was sturdy and works well. Highly recommend the door.
We had a great experience with Metro Screens. We bought a total of 18 screens, 16 windows screens and 2 Hercules sliding screens. The first 16 window screens we bought came quickly and one had a bent frame and we reached out to Metro Screen. They asked for a picture to verify and quickly sent us a replacement. After this great experience, we bought 2 Hercules sliding screens. The screens are very well built and we love it. They even offered to sent us the sliding screens fully assembled at no charge! We will definitely buy more when the need the arise and will recommend them to family and friends! Thank you!
I installed a new custom Hercules sliding screen door today. It was very well packaged for shipping as assembled. It's very easy to install and fit perfectly (don't forget to adjust the upper rollers too, and add the upper square plastic track guides). It wasn't cheap, but it's worth the money. I chose the pet screen and the stainless steel kit (salt air). Solid framing, tough screen, smooth operation, nice latch system, and good locking mechanism. This door is light-years better than the "junk" they sell at the "big box" stores. I will buy again from Metro! Thank you, Metro Screenworks! Nice job!
Fine Product. Great support.
We received the Hercules screen door (unassembled) and we put it together without problems. It is very good quality, and with minor adjustments, installed on our patio door easily.
I selected the "unassembled" Hercules model. And it seems to be excellent quality. I assembled the frame and "tested" it in the door opening and it seems to work fine. Then I installed the screen. All went nicely according to the video (you do have to find the video on one of the other models, Metro should consider adding a link to the TOP END Hercules model. I (obviously) do not know the long term durability, but it is VERY well built. I tried a cheap box-store door and those are NOT worth the time or money. It was a stop gap waiting for delivery and not expected to survive. The door was 1/8" BIGGER than the dimensions I requested. I checked back with Metro and they assure that is "normal" manufacturing tolerances. I have worked with and for several manufacturing companies, and I would suggest they work to IMPROVE that. That is why I tested it BEFORE installing the screen, and will test again before I trim the excess screen. I hope is passes. Many metal works companies can hold tighter tolerances. And OVERSIZE seems like it could be a problem to some people. I would encourage a GOAL or + 0" and - 1/8" for their manufacturing people. And as a minor point, the corners of the cut material are VERY sharp. I took a flat file and very gently shaved off the end point. It would be VERY easy to sustain a nasty cut if not careful with assembly. They are even very sharp after the frame is assembled. I hope Metro can make these minor improvements, as it is a VERY VERY nice and well built door.
Our patio door has been missing it's screen door for a while now. It was flimsy and broke and I couldn't get a replacement in it's size. Anyway because I was able to customize my screen door with Metroscreenworks, I give them a try.. Money well spent! The door is strong and glides easily. My door had to be assemble. If you can use a screwdriver and figure what a rectangle is, then you can do it.. when you unpack the box keep in mind that door parts has sharp ends before assembled, and make sure corners are flush before tightening screws. It took me about 30 minutes to install the mesh. Follow the instructions and take your time... After installation my wife was all hugs and kisses..lol.
Love the heavyweight frame, very easy to assemble.
I ordered the hercules with the pet screen. Very pleased overall. One corner was off a little bit on the miter, but it went together easily, and was fixed with a little fileing. Overall, this door is far superior to its predecessor. Seems very sturdy, and should last for years. The rollers are great too. Easy to adjust and ride very well in the tracks.
