Is the screen like a mesh that lets the air in and keeps flying bugs out? In the pic it all looks shiny top and bottom like glass, am I seeing it right? Lastly what's it for if it's not mesh, I mean if it's glass you still have to wash the screen even if it protacts the door.

Yup, just mesh to keep the bugs out. This particular door has what's called a hidden screen--it's within the glass panes and can be used on the top or bottom of the door--the glass slides up or down.
