Welcome to BuilderDepotsells it as mentioned above for $84.52.


I purchased a two foot by five foot piece (ten SF) for about $1 per SF at a local glass and screen place in Anaheim, CA.

Just digging through old threads, but Vintage Trailer Supply now carries the galvanized screen for Hehr standard windows.

I used a 1/4" x 6" carriage bolt as a crimping tool. The round head is small enough to fit behind the flange and inside the window channel. The square collar slides along the flange and crimps the screen tightly.

Metal screening went out with the times.

If solar screening is best for a home, then it certainly should be great for any RV.

Keeping sun heat out of the RV, is a very good thing.

Andy,

What do you suggest for the early 1950's Hehr window screens?

Bill.

We encourage everyone to switch to "solar" screening material.

It's just as easy to install as any other screen material, and does a real number on keeping some unwanted heat from the sun, out of the trailer.

If we are going "green" then lets use less electricity, to cool the coaches, by keeping some of the heat out.

Andy

The hehr standard windows don't use spline, so how do you get it to stay in?

Steel or bronze, but not aluminum or plastic

I own a 1956 Airstream and am currently rebuilding the windows. I can guarantee plastic screening and aluminum screening do not work.

Steel screen is still available and is your best choice. It is original, strong and will last a long, long time. Also, besides bronze (which is quite expensive), it is the only screen that works without a spline.

Strong is important with these windows since you have to completely remove them to replace the screen.

Steve....did you get my email about the Hehr Standards?

Hehr screening

We have installed solar sreen material in the old Hehr windows for years.

Just delivered another old Airstream with the Hehr windows, that we installed solar screening in. Customer loves it, as they have in the past.

Like they say in Brooklyn, no problemo.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

We also do many other things, "that can't be done", and have for years.

Andy

How?

Do you add a spline or a separate (new) screen frame? Any pics?

Shari.

We have installed solar screening in older Airstreams that had hehr windows, for years.

We have given probably hundreds of answers of how to do somethings, on the phone as well as the Forums.

How we install that screening, we consider proprietary, therefore we will have to pass on this one.

As you know, we do many things where others say "it can't be done," only to be taken to task by a select few, that "DEMANDED" answers and photo's.

I started doing some of the "can't be done" things, in 1970, and yes, even when Airstream said it can't be done, and will continue to do so, as long as I can.

Airstream said a "crash" book for Airstreams, was impossible to write. After reviewing what I wrote some 38 years ago, they finally admitted that it can be done, and has been in use, successfully, for these 38 years.

So we apologize to you, for not providing a detailed answer to your question.

We are sure that you understand our position.

Andy

Doesn't matter to me...we've already replaced ours - exactly as they were originally, with galvanized screen.

Just thought others may want to know.

I couldn't imagine replacing it with anything less durable than the original. The solar shade stuff will rip easy.
