Welcome to the Crimpact zone

Where we put our security screens to the test.

Australia’s strongest mesh security screen door

Crimsafe iQ-e is the strongest and smartest mesh security screen door in Australia. Up to 7 x times stronger than the Australian Standard, it’s also the only screen door to have passed the toughest, most rigorous burglar-resistance test in the world – the RC2 Test.

Screw Clamp Technology

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.

If it’s not Crimsafe, it’s not crim safe.

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

A Cut Above the Rest.

We conduct knife shear tests to ensure that intruders can’t slash their way into your home with a sharp knife. Read more...

Knife Shear Test

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.

Nothing Beats Crimsafe.

To ensure our screens stand strong against violent impact and keep even the strongest crims out, we conduct impact tests. Read more...

Impact Test

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).

The Strongest Bar None.

To ensure that our screens stand strong against tool attacks, we conduct crow-bar attack tests. Read more...

Lever Attack Test

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.

Stays Standing. Every Time.

Stays Standing. Every Time.

Intruders often try to forcefully pull a screen to gain entry. But with Crimsafe, that’s not an option. Read more...

Pull Test

A pull test is designed to simulate a forceful intrusion, with the screen being pulled at the top, side and bottom. Crimsafe screens stand firmly against the tugging.

No Barriers to Safety.

No Barriers to Safety.

To ensure that our screens are safe for balustrade and fencing, load tests are conducted. Read more...

Balustrade Test

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.

Can Handle the Heat.

Can Handle the Heat.

To keep your home cool and minimise unnecessary use of air-conditioning, we test our screens for their ability to block outside heat. Read more...

Solar Heat Gain Test

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%.

Fit for the beach.

Fit for the beach.

To ensure our screens are fit to live near the beach, and won’t be tarnished by the sea air, we conduct salt spray tests. Read more...

Salt Spray Test

To test this, we mimic 10 years of harsh, seaside weather by spraying a salt solution on the mesh for 3000 hours. Crimsafe screens pass with no hint of corrosion.

Uninvited Insects.

Uninvited Insects.

We protect you against even the tiniest of intruders. An insect resistance test proves it. Read more...

Insect Resistance Test

When a swarm of mosquitos were held inside a Crimsafe Tensile Tuff mesh testing device, 99% remained inside failing to get through to the other side.

Out of harm’s ray.

Out of harm’s ray.

Intruders aren’t the only dangerous thing we keep out of homes. Our screens block out 62% of harmful UV rays while still letting in daylight. Read more...

UV Light Test

To test this, an intense UV lamp is positioned onto the screen and an instrument measures the filtration rate.

For a Breath of Fresh Air.

For a Breath of Fresh Air.

We conduct airflow tests to be sure that while Crimsafe keeps lots of things out, it still welcomes in a breeze. Read more...

Airflow test

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.

Can Weather the Weather.

Can Weather the Weather.

To ensure you can feel safe inside your home, even during wild weather, we conduct cyclone debris tests. Read more...

Cyclone Debris Test

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.

Defence in the Face of Fire.

Defence in the Face of Fire.

We conduct ember attack tests to ensure that your home is protected from leaping fiery embers. Read more...

Ember Attack Test

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.

Stifles the Spread of Flames.

Stifles the Spread of Flames.

To ensure our screens are a hindrance and not a help to spreading flames in the home, we conduct fire attenuation tests. Read more...

Fire Attenuation Test

Crimsafe screens are placed over a furnace opening and the reduction of radiant heat is measured. Our screens achieve up to 59% attenuation of radiant heat.
