Screening kit for existing 2nd floor porch


I have an existing screened in porch (1 story above ground level) and the old screening kit needs to be replaced. I never liked this screening kit anyway and it gets destroyed every New England Winter. I live in Gloucester MA on the ocean.

I want to replace it with some new technology.

For example, I found this one: http://www.mosquitocurtains.com/. I liked that it is a curtain that can be moved, but not sure this is the way to go.

Do you have any other suggestions of kits that I could use?

I've seen other similar posts here on DIY, but the responses were "search for something on the web" and I am wondering if someone here has anything more specific - suggestions of kits or methods to do this work. I am not a carpenter, but very handy and can install myself.

Thank You
RickG

have you considered pop in screening panels (made for each opening) that can be removed come fall and put back in once spring arrives? kinda like storm panels for older windows (like on my home).

I had never heard of them before, then I had two customers in a row that want them that live on golf cources.
Then I moved into a new home that had them already.
They work great.
The reason those screens are failing in there to big and I'd guess the bottom one's are getting damaged from pets, small kids, and even that rocker that's right where it can poke a hole.
All just guesses.
Any time a screen is more then 48" wide there's not enough support.

Thank You. The EZ Breeze look pretty interesting. The 3 sided porch is 40 linear feet, 7 feet tall.
Any idea what the EZ Breeze might cost? I will call them. (They have a snail-mail-in-form, kind of archaic)
If anyone knows of similar screen products, feel free to share here.
