Screen Materials

What is the best screen material? I know what you can get at the local Home Depot but I was wondering if there is different mesh sizes? We live backing a main street and the dirt created by traffic is horrendous and was hoping a finer mesh could reduce the amount of dust but not the fresh air.

Screening is not intended to reduce dust. If the conditions are that bad, screening having a finer mesh will get clogged with the dust and block out most of the air. There is a fine mesh called "gnat screening" used where gnats are a problem.
