Crimsafe® is a stainless steel security mesh and frame system. It is used to secure doors, windows and outdoor areas from intruders and insects alike.
From a distance, it looks like flyscreen. And it does the same job of keeping your house cool in Summer while keeping mosquitoes out. But Crimsafe is unlike any other flyscreen you've ever seen, because it makes your home virtually impenetrable to thieves.
1. The mesh is 'screw-clamped' so it can't be kicked out
Look at the picture above and you can see how the Crimsafe mesh is sandwiched between two serrated pieces of aluminium that clamp the mesh tight. One is an aluminium strip with a hook and the other is the frame that the strip hooks into. But then, all three are screwed together with stainless steel tamper-resistant screws and the different components are separated by a Santoprene (rubber) bead to eliminate electrolysis that could lead to corrosion.
This combination mechanically fastens the mesh to the frame and creates a barrier that can't be kicked in - The Screw-ClampedTM Mesh that Beats More Burglars.
This system is internationally patented and unique. Only Crimsafe® features screws driven through both the clamp and the mesh and right into the frame on the other side, to provide incredible strength.
Beat more burglars with our Crimsafe products. We currently service the Greater Newcastle, Port Stephens, Hunter Valley, Central Coast and the Manning Valley.
2. Crimsafe's mesh is 0.9mm thick and precisely woven, so every strand backs up the others
Research shows that the most common method of entry through security screens is a well-placed series of kicks that bust the screen apart. That won't work with Crimsafe. You can kick at Crimsafe's Tensile Tuff mesh repeatedly, and you will definitely injure yourself before you break through it.
It's also incredibly difficult to cut Crimsafe mesh. You can take a machete and hack away at our mesh and you'll have a hard time getting anywhere. You might put a few holes in it but you won't be able to fit through them. That's because Crimsafe's Security mesh has such strong ‘shear' resistance. What that means is that a burglar can't make a hole in the mesh by stabbing it, and then make it bigger by using his weight to drag a knife through it. Take a look below at how Crimsafe mesh stands up to an Australian Standards test called, funnily enough, "The Knife Shear Test". There's 15kg of force pushing the knife into the mesh, and 30kg's pulling it along the face of the mesh. You can see that Crimsafe is successful because the tip of the knife doesn't penetrate the mesh, it just skips over it. It's an incredibly tough test to pass, but Crimsafe does it easily.
But the real proof that Crimsafe's Tensile Tuff mesh is something special is this... before Crimsafe came on the market, nobody could even weave .9mm Premium 304 grade Security Steel into the commercial mesh that Crimsafe is made of! We had to commission a wire products manufacturer to make special machinery before it could be done.
Secret coating means long life and good looks
One last fact... The coating that goes on our stainless steel mesh gives it that cool black look, but it is purposefully designed to protect it from the environment.
It took us a long time to develop it in conjunction with Dulux but we stuck at it 'til we got it right. We can't reveal the formula, but we can tell you that it is a High Durability coating that contains additives to ensure long life and permanent good looks. The commercial powder coating actively works against the buildup of airborne particles and makes cleaning easier.
To prove its worth, we sent test samples of our mesh to undergo the Salt Spray Test. This is a test that measures corrosion resistance when exposed to accelerated weathering conditions. A salt solution is sprayed at the test samples for 1000 hours, simulating 10 years of environmental exposure. Crimsafe passed easily.
So when we say Crimsafe® beats more burglars...
We really mean it. Burglars don't have a long time to spend trying to get into your home. They must get in, quickly, quietly, and get out. It's too damned hard to get through Crimsafe. So burglars will give up and move on.
