We put our extensive range of security screens through rigorous testing to ensure they really are as strong as we say they are. Because after all, at Crimsafe, we never sleep, so you can.View the range
Crimsafe’s exclusive Screw-Clamp™ technology secures our Tensile-Tuff® mesh to the frame in a vice-like grip giving our screens the strength they’re famous for, as it allows screens to absorb and disperse extreme force.Learn more
We are continuously challenging ourselves, so you don’t have to. From impact testing, to knife shear testing, to corrosion testing we’ve put our screens through rigorous tests so that you can be sure they meet the highest standards.Impact Test Results

This involves a heavy-duty trimming knife being forcefully pulled along the mesh multiple times. If the mesh isn’t penetrated in a continuous line for more than 150mm, it passes the test. Crimsafe passes with flying colours.
The Australian Standard Dynamic impact test puts security screens up against a 45kg weighted impact five times. It was found that not only did all of our screens far surpass the competitor screens, but also exceeded the Australian Standard by over 12 times (Crimsafe Commercial).
A large ‘jemmy’ is inserted at all locking, hinging and fastening points around the screen until either 80 degrees of rotation or 45kg of force is achieved. Crimsafe stands firm proving its ability to withstand forceful tool entry.
Weight is pushed onto screen panels to replicate inward and outward pressure. Thanks to our tough mesh and unique Screw-Clamp technology, Crimsafe screens are able to withhold tremendous force and pressure, making for excellent fall protection.
To test Crimsafe’s ability to keep the heat outside in summer, and insulate it inside winter, a screen is placed over a glazed window and its heat-blocking performance is monitored. Testing reveals Crimsafe improves energy efficiency in a home by up to 53%.
For this test, Crimsafe Tensile-Tuff mesh is fitted into a custom-designed wind tunnel. It is found to let in an impressive average of 53% of the airflow, which means naturally good airflow in your home thus minimising the need for air conditioning.
Testing involves firing heavy wood and metal missiles repeatedly at different velocities onto the screen. Crimsafe screens withhold the projectiles and debris from wind gusts of 392kph, meaning ultimate protection against even the most severe storms.
Crimsafe has tested its security screens to meet the highest levels in bushfire protection, and can be used in bushfire prone areas up to and including those rated BAL-FZ.
Crimsafe’s Tensile-Tuff® stainless steel mesh is specially designed to a size and shape (1.5mm x 1.5mm aperture) that meets the requirements of the Australian Standard AS 3959-2009 bushfire protection guidelines and prevents ember penetration during bushfires
