The curtain has well sewn edges which makes it look very neat. It was very easy to install, much easier than the previous one.
This screen is more durable. It is more of a woven mesh and is easy to see (no one will walk into in without see it).
The magnets work well to shut the seam. Even our dachshund has figured out how to use it. The door is not a one-size-fits-all. I did have to gather the screen in the corners a bit. I never expected a custom fit. Overall a good product for a good price.
My family and I have gone through two other versions of this product,.....
The XXXX XXX & XXXX XXXXX Instant Screen and in a matter of months they tore apart, but this premium magnetic screen door is perfect.
We walk in and out of this screen on a regular day basis (I want to say about at least 100 times a day) and do not have any issues of the screen not closing unlike the other versions where you would need to check if your screen even close.
I was able to adjust the screen, for our door width 750mm I simply velcro the top of the mesh, roll the sides together, use the thumb tacks provided, and done, the mesh door fitted perfect!
As for the the length of the mesh I just simply folded a good portion of the mesh to door length and use safety pins and pinned a line across both sides of the mesh.
I highly recommend this version of a screen mesh door
