Purchasing a right security screen door adds extra value and assurance to your home. There are quite a few products on the market boasting that they’re the best and safest around Australia. Two of the better-known options are Invisi-Gard and Crimsafe. They are both effective methods of maintaining a barrier between your home and any potential intruder, and they are great reinforcements for your current doors and windows.

Let’s explore the difference between the two so that you can make a more informed purchasing decision.

Invisi-Gard Facts

Invisi-Gard is one of the best security doors on the market, and well known for its strength and durability. Let’s go over some of its main selling points.

Made of The Strongest Mesh Around

Invisi-Gard is incredibly strong, made from woven Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel mesh. This mesh is more resistant to corrosion than 304 grade, so you can rest assured that it will stay just as strong for years to come. The doors are also reinforced with aluminium frames for added strength and flexibility.

The mesh that Invisi-Gard uses to make their security screens is tested to Australian Standards and easily passes the AS5041-2008 test for Knife-Shear.

Three Point Lock System

All of the doors are manufactured with a three-point lock system that provides extra security. This, plus the aluminium framing, has made it possible for Invisi-Gard to pass the Lock and Hinge Lever test AS5039-2008.

Protected Against Harsh UV Rays

Constant exposure to the sun would cause most fly screens to fade and damage, but not the Invisi-Gard, which is pre-treated with the highest quality UV-resistant powder coating.

Great Versatility

You can have Invisi-Gard screens made to suit your needs, whether you want it fitted to a sliding or hinged door, or need it fitted to your windows for extra security.

Invisi-Gard also complies with up to BAL40 requirements – important if you are building in relevant localities.

  • Lock and Hinge Lever
  • Salt Spray
  • Knife Shear
  • Cyclone Rated
  • Fire Attenuation
  • Bushfire

Crimsafe Facts

Crimsafe also offers an effective method of protecting your home and family from intruders. It uses a device called “Screw-Clamp” to adhere the mesh deep into the doorframe.

Strong Stainless Steel

Crimsafe is also made up of stainless steel, only it’s made up of Marine Grade 304. This steel, while still incredibly strong, it is not as resistant to corrosion as Invisi-Gard. In Melbourne, where the sun is harsh and stronger than ever, the consumer must think about what will last against the elements the longest.

Made with Santoprene Frame Bead

This design means that there will be less dirt and grime build up on the edge of the screen frame.

  • Pull
  • Jemmy
  • Shear
  • Knife Shear
