Go to Home Depot, Lowes, Fastenal, etc. In the extruded metal section of the store they have expanded metal panels that are perfect....with a little fabrication for the size and mounting.

I made mine from a piece of 'stretched' or 'expanded' metal screen. Most good hardware stores will have it in their metal supply section. I bought a piece larger than I needed then fastened it to the rear of the screen door frame with short sheet metal screws with washers to keep the screw heads 'honest'.
