How does Crimsafe’s Screw-Clamp Technology work?

2 minutes read

Crimsafe consistently outperforms both Australian standards and competitor products for its ability to withstand high levels of impact.

How does it manage to do this?

With the unrivalled combination of Crimsafe’s patented Screw-Clamp™ technology, and the Tensile-Tuff® 304 structural grade stainless steel security mesh.

Crimsafe’s exclusive Screw-Clamp™ bites down on the mesh, holding it into the frame, which is then secured by tamper-resistant stainless-steel screws. This vice-like grip is what gives Crimsafe its incredible strength and its ability to withstand tremendous force by absorbing and dispersing impact.

Unlike other products that use a plastic wedge or glue to hold the mesh in place, Crimsafe’s Screw-Clamp™ transfers the force of an impact around the frame, so the mesh remains intact, allowing the unit to withstand enormous impact. Crimsafe is the only security screen to feature mesh screwed into place like this, giving it unrivalled resistance to attack.

The Screw-Clamp™ technology, often considered the superior mesh retention system, differs from plastic wedging systems which only localise the impact or PVC wedging systems which expand and contract, thus making its ‘grip’ within the frame weaker over time.

Only Crimsafe mesh features specially developed 0.9mm 304 structural grade wire strands which are woven together in such a rigid way that each strand supports the others around it.

The mesh is insulated by Santoprene rubber, a component so revolutionary that it has a separate patent. Santoprene rubber insulation reduces water penetration and salt build-up in harsh environments and eliminates galvanic corrosion of the different metals – meaning a very long life for your screens. Santoprene also does not degrade after prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light (sunlight).

From the front door, to pool fences and bi-fold doors, Crimsafe’s industry-leading security screens are custom-designed to protect any home. For more information on the Crimsafe range, check out our products.
