Crimsafe security screens have been designed and built with the primary goal of protecting your home and family by keeping criminals out. But did you know that there are many not-so-obvious reasons that Crimsafe can improve your home – and they can even save you money.
Crimsafe is Australian owned and operated, and the products are designed for Australians. They know what we’re up against – extreme weather conditions, rising energy costs and insects!
With this in mind, here are just a few of the extra ‘benefits’ that installing Crimsafe on your home can bring:
1. Reduce Your Energy Costs
Mesh doors such as Flyscreens are great for keeping out the insects, letting the breeze in, and when locked can stop your kids or dogs from wandering out. However, with a Crimsafe security screen, you get all those benefits PLUS the added strength that only comes with Crimsafe and their unique Tensile-Tuff stainless steel mesh.
Using 0.9mm 304 structural-grade stainless steel, this mesh is up to 26.5% thicker than other mesh products.
Tensile-Tuff mesh offers an extra layer of protection from the heat or cold when installed over glass windows and doors. It’s even been verified by the Window Energy Rating Scheme!
In summer, Crimsafe’s Tensile-Tuff can block up to 53% of solar heat and 62% of UV rays. Which means your home will stay significantly cooler. In winter, Crimsafe screens stop heat from escaping keeping you toasty warm.
Save money on those ever-increasing energy bills by relying less on air-conditioning and heating!
2. Protect Your Home from the Harsh Australian Elements
It’s not just the extreme temperatures Crimsafe can protect you from. If you live in a bushfire or cyclone-prone area, Crimsafe security screens can offer more protection than you might think!
Crimsafe has been tested to meet the highest levels for bushfire protection.
Tensile-Tuff stainless steel mesh is specially designed in both mesh-size and shape to meet the Australian requirements for bushfire protection guidelines AS3959-2009.
This means that Crimsafe can be used in bushfire-prone areas up to and including those rated BAL-FZ. Offering ember protection, preventing fire attenuation, and reducing the intensity of radiant heat reflux and naked flame by up to 59%, Crimsafe is the best option for homes and businesses in bushfire-prone areas.
Cyclones more of a concern than bushfires? There’s good news for you too!
Crimsafe security screens are approved for use in cyclone regions C & D, including Crimsafe doors, windows and Safe-S-Capes. Crimsafe cyclone debris screens can protect your home from storm-driven debris in wind gusts of up to 392km per hour!
Even smaller storms in South East Queensland can be damaging. Crimsafe security screens will protect your glass windows and doors against hail stones and flying debris.
3. Open Up Your Living Space
Home security screens can sometimes have the perception of making your house feel a bit prison-like by closing up the house from the outside world and making it unnecessarily dark and you and your family feel a little isolated.
But Crimsafe has designed safety that’s inviting and functional. It also has a modern aesthetic and comes in a great range of modern colours.
Ideal for outdoor spaces such as patios, Crimsafe’s screens are designed to absorb light and create visibility through the screen – so you can take in your outdoor surroundings while being safe inside.
Crimsafe screens allow light and airflow to come into your living space and help you enjoy the great outdoors – without the intrusion of insects! Get in the outdoors without being annoyed by flies, mosquitoes and other pests.

4. No Need to Upgrade Regularly
Crimsafe mesh is made from 304 Grade Stainless Steel which on its own has a lifespan of approximately 65 years.
In the industry-standard Salt Spray Test, a salt solution is sprayed at the test samples for 1,000 hours, simulating 10 years of exposure to very harsh weathering conditions. The Crimsafe security screen system test ed passed a massive 3,000 hours with no corrosion. Our Tensile-Tuff® security mesh passed 10,000 hours with no corrosion.
