Yes, it is available at Home Depot in a roll that will replace the screen in a standard 6' patio door. I bought mine several years ago, when my dog was just a pup and decided he wanted to go through the original screen in the old "stick-n-brick". Pet-safe screen is considerably thicker than standard screening fabric, so you may have to go with a smaller diameter splining.
By the way, Jsundin, nice job on the "mods"!
