    It is two "frames" with the hardware cloth in the middle. I have done this before. I screwed the two frames together in the case I would have to replace the wire.

    I hope this helps.

    It helps a great deal!

    Good to know. I want to do that with my chicken coop, except i want to have one half of two sides be made of screen like that, with the ability to close it completely. Im in texas, and i want them to be cool at night, and warm in the winter!
