Why choose a Crimsafe security screen?
If you’re looking for a security screen to put over a door or window, the chances are you want one that can’t simply be kicked in or jemmied off by someone trying to get into your home. If you were just looking for shade, a breeze through the house or insect protection, you could save yourself money by simply installing fly screens.
Crimsafe doors and windows are made from a Tensil Tuff 304-grade stainless steel mesh with a mid-rail for extra strength. The mesh is held in place with a Crimsafe’s patented Screw Clamp, which is why they’re rated as the strongest security screen on the market.
An insider’s tip for testing Crimsafe quality
You can compare Crimsafe windows and doors with other brands easily just by giving them a bit of a shove in the showroom. In particular look for plastic clips holding the mesh in place . It doesn’t matter if the mesh is made from a secret NASA material if it’s held in place by nothing more than a plastic clip.
10-year warranty on Crimsafe products
And you don’t have to be an insider to know you’re dealing with a quality product when the manufacturer stands behind it with a 10-year warranty. (Plus another five years if you want an extended warranty.)
Crimsafe keeps more than burglars out
Heat comes into your house the same way burglars would like to: through the windows and doors. The Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) rates Crimsafe screens as reducing solar heat gain by 53 percent. You’ll be appreciating more than just the breeze through the Gold Coast summer.
What sort of doors and windows work with Crimsafe?
All of them. Sliding, hinged, stacking, bifolding or fitted with colonial inserts, Crimsafe can secure it.
Can I install them myself?
No. Crimsafe security doors can only be installed by a licensed Crimsafe service provider.
Special uses for Crimsafe products
Commercial windows and doors
Commercial premises are often more appealing than homes for thieves because they know exactly what’s inside. They’re also frequently deserted at night, allowing for more vigorous and sustained attacks on security doors and screens.
Crimsafe commercial screens use thicker aluminium and a greater number of tamper-proof screws to deter the high-impact attempts to break in that are more common with commercial property.
The screens can be custom-made to fit any window or door.
Where a Bush Fire Attack Level (BAL) has been determined, you need bush fire protection that meets Australian Standard AS3959-2009. Exactly what you need will depend on the BAL rating that’s been given to your site.
Crimsafe screens — along with suitable windows, glazing and protection — can meet the requirement to protect against ember attack.
Crimsafe screens are an attractive and robust alternative to traditional pool fencing and balustrades. The balustrade complies with the National Construction Code AS/NZS1170.1 (2002) and the pool fencing complies with Australian Standard AS1926.1 (1993) for swimming pool safety.
