I’m not aware of a common term. In the southern U.S., we might refer to the door as a sliding door or possibly a screen door. Both are ambiguous because they might be made of glass or screen material. A screen door could also be a hinged door or a sliding glass door. You’ll sometimes hear the latter called a sliding glass door. Likewise, we’ll call a screen in a window a window screen or just a screen.
