Crimsafe ultimate vs Crimsafe regular


Choosing the right security screen to protect your home and family can be a daunting task. There are so many options and brands in the market and they all say the same thing – that their screens are the best. So how do you know who to choose?

It’s important to do your research to determine which products will work best for you and your family. So we’ve put this handy guide together with all the best bits of Crimsafe to make your research a little easier.


1. Unique Crimsafe Technology

For over twenty years, Crimsafe have worked tirelessly to develop a product that will outperform all others for strength testing. Which means no matter how hard a burglar tries to get in, they won’t be able to break through Crimsafe’s unique Tensile-Tuff mesh. This 304 grade tensile steel mesh is up to 26% thicker on the cross section than competitors.

To break it down – this means that tools like knives, bricks or other forms of brute force won’t break through the mesh.

Using Screw-Clamp Technology, Crimsafe products are also tamper-resistant so the screen won’t break away from the frame. So it’s not just the screening that’s doing the work in protecting your family.


If you’re concerned that Crimsafe is too tough and can’t be broken for emergencies, such as fire, look no further than Safe-S-Capes. Crimsafe’s emergency exit window screens provide complete peace of mind with a quick-release, one-way opening system which is simple enough to be used by children as young as three years old.



2. Crimsafe Warranty

Crimsafe are so confident in their products they offer a 10 year warranty as standard – and if you register your products online this can be extended to a 12 year warranty or a 15 year warranty for Crimsafe Ultimate products. This warranty covers the frame and mesh of the products. Leaving you with the assurance that you won’t need to be replacing screens every couple of years.

On top of that, Davcon offer a two year warranty on all moving parts e.g. hinges and locks.


3. Crimsafe iQ

Crimsafe have designed the strongest screens in Australia – but that hasn’t stopped them from going even further. Crimsafe have recently released their Crimsafe iQ range which has passed the toughest burglar-resistance testing in the world.

The burglar-resistance tests includes:

  • Impact testing using a 50kg impactor
  • Load testing up to 300kg on both internal and external directions
  • Resistance to manual break-in attempts with a range of tools

The Crimsafe iQ range is also the first of its kind to incorporate smart technology giving you the flexibility for electronic access including PIN code keypad, Bluetooth, keyfob and even finger scanning. You can also set up automatic lock on closing and programmed locking.

The Crimsafe iQ range was developed to keep up to date with modern technologies and the ever-changing Australian lifestyle. Growing a range of products to ensure you can find the best fit for your needs.


4. Crimsafe is Designed for Australia

Designed in Australia for Australian environments Crimsafe’s products are ready for the harshest weather conditions. We’re known for insects, heat and humidity – so that’s what Crimsafe had in mind – protecting you from more than just burglars.

Your security screens won’t rust or corrode – Crimsafe screens have been pummelled with 3,000 hours of salt spray testing and 30 years of simulated environmental exposure without rust, blistering or loss of adhesion. What’s more, Crimsafe’s Tensile Tuff mesh filters out 62% of UV radiation, but still lets in 53% airflow – which is much higher than traditional insect screens (it obviously keeps those out too!)

Crimsafe have also been verified by the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) – which means if installed over glass windows and doors can improve your cooling and heating retention. This energy efficiency technology is great for the environment, and for your wallet!

But it doesn’t stop there!

Crimsafe has been developed specifically to meet the Australian requirements of bushfire protection preventing ember penetration during bushfires.

A number of Crimsafe products also feature a unique build-out installation to provide cyclone debris protection, so you can protect your home and business against storm driven debris from winds up to nearly 400km.
