Window screen for acoustic panels?

Hi all, I'm building a bunch of roxul rockboard panels and need fabric to cover the backs (am using auralax type foam panels I already had to cover the fronts.) I saw a killer price ($25) on a 60" by 100' roll of fiberglass window screen material and so just jumped on it without thinking too much but now am wondering if I jumped the gun.

Here's the stuff I bought WJ Dennis & Company Climaloc SGCL60100B Bulk Roll of Wrinkle-Free Fiberglass Replacement Screen for Professionals, 60-Inch x 100-Feet, Black - -

Anyone here use window screen before as a panel material? My two concerns are that it'll be too porous and let the roxul mineral wool fibers through, and / or that it'll be too fragile to staple (though I did consider buying window screen frame and spline that'd be another $50 or so and would defeat the purpose of the killer deal.) I suppose I could lay down a strip of fabric over it or figure something else out to staple it.

Anywho, thought some of you guys might have done this before and could save me some trouble.
