top rail screen door

A handy person from Ohio says:
Have a French door. Two rails on the bottom one at the top. Both doors open inward. These are the rails that came with the door-and no the mfg does not offer screens. Everybody is stumped how two sliders would work. Do I need to purchase an additional top rail?

Yes, I see what you're talking about. It appears you have two tracks at the bottom for two sliding screens; one for the left side and one for the right side. However, you only have one top track, which is a little confusing. Is it possible that one screen was mounted in a fixed position on the inside track, and that only the outside door slides? Even though the manufacturer doesn't supply screens do, they at least have a diagram showing the placement of the doors? Either way, this is a unique setup.
