I saw this type of metal link curtain in the UK & Australia being used as fly screens on exterior doorways. I hate screen doors and loved this idea and it works exactly as I hoped: no slamming door, easy pet access, no torn screening! And yes, it does stop the flies & other summer bugs from entering the house. The curtain came out of the box ready to hang. Beats the fabric & magnet door curtains hands down. Those I had to replace at minimum once a season, and I expect I won't have to replace this Lynx ever again! The copper color is superb too - just like freshly polished copper pots. Not cheap, but solves all my problems beautifully!
ProsEasy to install, links don't snag on clothing when passing through, finish is great & looks unlikely to ever spot or tarnish.
