How can I keep the dirt, pollen, and sand out of my screened sunroom?

I am not heating or cooling the area. One contractor told me Plexiglas would be better; then I had another say, "no, vinyl pane is your best bet." I can't seem to find the pros and cons of glass, vinyl pane, or Plexiglas. Can you advise?
It seems a shame to close in this porch if you are not heating or cooling it in such a hot and humid place as Florida.
I'm not sure this would work, but what if you installed misters to settle the dust instead of trying to keep it out? Or, if the climate is too humid for that, what about blowers that are at the house side so it blows dust away and also cools the people in the room?
I know I'm not answering your question about these glazing materials with suggestions, but a sunroom is usually on the south side of the house, and I don't want you to roast.
Of the choices you mentioned, however, I would go with a low-E glass. The technology is evolving all the time and you can get a very efficient system these days. I would be sure to allow plenty of ventilation.
