With any of these you can make a frame with window screening materials. Around here, most common is aluminum in any of 3 colors. (White, deep brown, silver- but get whichever you want, and you can spray paint it black or whatever you want)
Test fit the spline (rubbery stuff that you put into the slot in the frame) to be sure it is a snug fit. Most of the materials being discussed are thinner, lighter than window screen fabric, so the spline needs to fit well to hold it.
'Mosquito bar' is the name I have heard for the mesh that is fine enough to stop mosquitoes with a support structure.
