Why Quality Matters When Choosing a Security Screen

Security screens are becoming increasingly popular for protecting homes and businesses from potential intruders. But not all security screens are created equal – choosing one with superior quality can make the difference between safe security and an unreliable barrier. Here, we explore why quality matters when choosing a security screen, looking at aspects such as strength, installation, warranty, and more.


The primary purpose of a security screen is to provide strong protection against intruders. It’s essential to choose one that has been designed with strength in mind. Look out for screens made from tough materials like stainless steel and aluminium that have been subject to stringent testing procedures. This will ensure that your security screening is strong enough to keep out unwanted visitors and protect your property.

Crimsafe Security (UQ Study)

Crimsafe security screens are designed and built to be tougher than the competition, to protect the people and places you love. Impact testing outperformed the Australian Standard by five times, while the jemmy, pull-testing, and Knife-Shear tests passed with flying colors. 

The Crimsafe difference is found in our patented Screw-clamp™ system – which holds the mesh into the frame by physically screwing it in with a vice-like grip. This ensures that impact forces are spread over the entire frame instead of just focusing on one area like inferior plastic wedges or pop-rivets. 

The Tensile-Tuff® mesh also offers superior protection compared to imitations. Made from 0.9mm 304 structural grade stainless steel wire strands, it’s 26.5% thicker than 0.8mm 316 grade wire for greater energy absorption at high tensile levels and passes all Knife Shear tests. 

Installation of your security screens

In addition to being strong enough to protect against intruders, it’s also important to consider how easy the security screen is to install. Poorly fitted screens are unlikely to provide sufficient protection so it’s important to opt for one that has been designed with ease of installation in mind.

Quality matters too when it comes to the longevity of your security screen – after all, you want yours to last! Opt for products that have been tested thoroughly and come with a good warranty so that you know they won’t let you down in times of need. A reliable warranty will help protect your investment into a quality product as well as peace of mind should something go wrong further down the line.

Other Factors

Of course, there are other factors that must be taken into consideration when selecting a security screen such as cost-effectiveness and aesthetic appeal (e.g., ensuring colour schemes match up with existing decor). However, never compromise on quality – especially when it comes to protecting your home or business from the threat of intrusion! Taking into account all of these points will help you make an informed decision on which product best fits your needs now and in the future.
