Understanding Standard and Custom Sizes for Sliding Screen Doors

Sliding screen doors come in a variety of standard sizes, typically ranging in width from 30, 36 to 48 inches, with standard heights between 77 and 80 inches. For larger openings, 8-foot sliding patio screens are also available, ranging from 93 to 96 inches in height. Despite these common dimensions, sliding screen door sizes can vary significantly depending on the sliding glass door manufacturer, which is why it is crucial to consult a sliding screen door size chart before making a purchase. Best Custom Screens exclusively offers custom-made-to-order sizes, ensuring that every screen door perfectly fits your unique specifications and needs. We do not stock standard sizes.

A standard-size sliding screen door typically comes in widths of 36 & 48 inches, with heights from 77 to 80 inches. Many people I speak to assume that all sliding screen doors are standard. I would like to clarify this right now. I believe that this myth started because Home Depot and Lowe’s carry adjustable sliding screen doors in their stores. Those screen doors are inferior and installers typically will not install them because in their words “it’s crap!”

What is a sliding screen door?

Diagram of sliding screen door width x heightA sliding screen door is a movable screen that moves across a sliding glass door.  The sliding screen door has spring-loaded wheels at the bottom and top frames and slides the track on the outer side of a sliding glass door.  Its rectangular-shaped metal frame holds the screening mesh material in place with a spline that is pushed into a groove of the frame. The mesh is tightened when pushing the spline and screening into the groove with a roller tool.

The purpose of the sliding screen door is to keep out birds, flying insects or airborne debris such as leaves from entering the home.  It also helps with keeping pets and small children from exiting interior spaces, while allowing for fresh air and sunlight to enter the home.

Aluminium frames

Aluminum sliding screen doors are generally constructed by two types of screen door frames.  The rollform or extruded frames. In both cases, the rectangular roll form or extruded shapes are mitered and joined together into a door frame using interior plastic or metal corners.

Rollforming Screen Frames

Rollforming screen frames is a process that starts with thin metal (aluminum or steel) sheets into a rectangular-shaped door frame which incorporates a screen channel to hold the window screen material.  This method of manufacturing screen door frames is the least expensive way to form a relatively strong rectangular shape.


The extruded aluminum frames are made from thicker aluminum than roll-formed screen door frames. This makes an extruded aluminum door much stronger but also more expensive. Extruded aluminum screen door frames can be mitered and joined with aluminum alloy corners.

Extruded aluminum screen doors are generally longer lasting than roll formed screen doors.

Extrusion is a process used to create objects of a shaped profile. A material is pushed through a die of the desired shape.
