SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Replacing the screen on Anderson Forever Door

A quick learner from New Jersey says:
Who knew replacing a screen would be so difficult! Hardware stores do not stock the rigid spline used on Anderson Forever doors. I'd like to order some from Swisco but want to be sure I am buying the right stuff. Installed, the visible portion of the spline on my door measures 5/16". Do all Forever doors use rigid spline of the same width?

To assure we find the correct spline for your door could you please send in some photos with measurements. Thank you!

The spline measures 5/16". I'll send a photo. What other measurements would help?

Hello! Thanks for the picture. I believe our 55-109 Emco rigid spline will work for your door, but only with standard fiberglass. That is how Emco designed it. It should fit your 5/16" opening otherwise.
A quick learner from New Jersey says:
Okay. I'll order it and the standard fiberglass screen. Thank you!
