Steel Door Screens Lake Norman

We have posted several articles and shared a few videos on the Crimsafe line of steel door screens and how effective they are for access control.  Today we will uncover a few more details about the renowned product.

The Steel:
Crimsafe security screens are made from Structural Grade 304 stainless steel, while competitors use a lesser strength 316 marine grade stainless steel.  The Crimsafe screen is tempered higher adding toughness and strength, which enable them to absorb more impact energy from a possible intruder.  Crimsafe security screens surpass the Australian Standards Knife Shear Test and are less likely to change form without breaking when attacked..  The steel strands of mesh in a Crimsafe screen are 0.9mm thick vs. the competitors 0.8mm.  Even though the difference is difficult to see, the Crimsafe steel screen is actually 26.5% cross sectionally thicker.  The high grade pre-treatment and high durability powder coat technologies present a long lasting premium finish

Tested Tough:

  • Crimsafe security screen are tested and withstanding a single impact of up to 1200 joules of energy
  • No sign of corrosion, loss of adhesion or blistering after 3000 hours in the 1000hr Salt Spray Test
  • 44m/s windborne cyclonic debris screening
  • WERS rated to reduce solar heat gain in your home

The Frame:
Super tough steel screens are only as good as the frame they are attached to!  Crimsafe is the only security screen product where the mesh is screwed into the frame and clamped down with a patented device called the “Screw-Clamp™ “.  Most other security screen mesh systems are held in place with a wedge or glue.  The distinctive design of the insulated frame resists dirt and grime and greatly thwarts the buildup on the edge of the screen frame.  Crimsafe screens have an angled rubber bead around the frame; this enables water and airborne particles to be directed away from the screen and stops it from collecting on the top edge of the screen frame

Anchor Approved:
We sell and install the Crimsafe brand of security screens because they are simply the best on the market today!  If you are interested in access control, security screens from Crimsafe should be at the top of your list.
