Terminology

Reveal is the section of door or window frame that sits at right angles to the door or glass. Reveal fit places the mesh at right angles to the VELCRO® Brand fastener.
Face is the section of door or window frame that is facing you. A Face fit screen will place the mesh on the same plane to the VELCRO® Brand fastener. Face fit is over 5 times stronger than Reveal fit. (see diagram)
Sill is the bottom part of a window frame that forms a shelf-like part at right angles (reveal.)
Unfinished measurement is the opening of the door or window (blue space in sketch) This does not include the VELCRO® Brand fastener which holds the screen to the frame (we add this to your measurements when you select “Unfinished”)
Finished measurement is the opening of the door or window with the VELCRO® Brand fastener allowance included. Custom made to your exact measurements knowing you have included the VELCRO® Brand fastener when measuring.
