Many people wonder whether Crimsafe or Prowler Proof is the better option for security for their home. Both options carry out the same function in providing good security for your home, so why would you choose one over the other? Let’s take a look at the benefits of both Crimsafe and Prowler Proof security screens and doors.
Prowler Proof Security Screens and Doors
While the diamond pattern may look similar to other diamond security screen designs, there is a major difference between Prowler Proof screens and the ones you can buy in your local hardware store. Unlike the standard security screens you can buy, these screens and doors have no visible rivets or joins – they are almost made in one piece.
Prowler Proof screens and doors are welded together which makes these screens up to 20 times stronger than those on the market that use rivets, and they are perfect for homeowners who want to add extra security to their home, but don’t have a large budget.
These screens can be used for:
- Single doors
- French doors
- Single and bi-parting sliding doors
- Stacking sliding doors
- Single and double sliding windows
The 7mm Heavy Duty Diamond security screens from Prowler Proof come with a 10 year warranty giving you peace of mind that your home, family and belongings are protected.
Crimsafe Screens and Doors
Everyone has heard about Crimsafe screens and doors – stronger than other products on the market but without the bars and grilles, Crimsafe has been helping to protect homes and families for more than 20 years. They are the industry leader in stainless steel security systems, and exceed all industry and Australian Standard testing.
Crimsafe screens and doors feature Tensile Tuff mesh, a 0.9mm, 304 grade stainless steel mesh that is heavier and harder to cut and penetrate. There there is the Screw-Clamp technology which is almost like a vice, clamping down onto the mesh to hold it into the frame. There’s no screws or rivets, and it allows the mesh to withstand a lot of force.
Crimsafe can be used on:
- Hinged and sliding doors
- French doors
- Bi-fold doors
- Stacking doors
- Fixed windows
- Hinged and sliding windows
- Patio enclosures
- Safe-S-Cape (emergency exits)
The screens can also be used as balustrading and offer fall protection from balconies and windows that are off ground level. One of the best things about Crimsafe screens and doors is that they also provide a level of protection from ember attack and burning debris, as well as flying debris in cyclones and severe storms.
These screen windows and doors are more expensive, and provide a different look to the Prowler Proof screens.
While there are differences between Crimsafe and Prowler Proof, both offer a high level of protection to your home that you wouldn’t find in standard security screens and doors. If you’d like to find out the best option for your home, contact the friendly team at Securelux.
