Special mounting needed for storm door


All storm doors I looked at mount on two z bars that attaches to the corner of the molding or doorway. I need a storm door that attaches like a security door, with 2 bars screwed into the outside of the molding. Do you guys know anything product like that?

I can install a security door over the molding, but I can't find any security door that has glass or plastic and can protect the door from rain like a storm door. Also they are rather heavy for that purpose.

Why do you think it needs to be mounted that way?
What's wrong with a standard door?

The door frame is not standard, I think it was not installed correctly and has been modified and patched. A mobile screen guy looked at it to install a storm door or screen with glass and told me he could not do it. However he told me with a bit of shimming a security door could be attached to the outside at the door molding.
