As the weather gets warmer and summer approaches, many of us are looking forward to spending more time outdoors. However, this also means that our homes are at a higher risk of break-ins and burglaries.
One way to help protect your home (and your family) is to install Crimsafe security screens on your doors and windows. Crimsafe screens are made from incredibly tough stainless steel mesh, which is designed to withstand even the most determined intruder. Taking a simple step like installing Crimsafe screens on your doors and windows can give you the peace of mind of your family and home being safe while you enjoy the great outdoors.
Here are just a few reasons why you should consider installing Crimsafe screens at your home:
Extra Layer of Security
Almost all homes will have some form of screen on their windows and doors but more often than not this is either just a barrier screen (i.e a fly screen), or a cheaper security screen which can still be broken into. Because of the strength of the Crimsafe mesh, combined with the triple locking system, Crimsafe provides an extra layer of security that other screen windows and doors don’t. It is the stainless steel mesh that Crimsafe uses in their screens that make it much harder for intruders to break into your home.
Durable and Long Lasting
We often get asked how long you could expect to get out of a Crimsafe screen and many don’t believe us! The 304 stainless steel mesh used in Crimsafe products has a lifespan of over 60 years!! There’s a good chance you’re going to have sold your home and moved elsewhere before your screens start to fail.
The products come with a minimum standard 10 year warranty which can be extended to 12 or 15 years depending on the product installed.
Now not only will your Crimsafe doors and windows withstand years of wear and tear, they are also built to last in coastal conditions; being resistant to corrosion and rust means that they will last longer, no matter the environment.
An area of concern from many homeowners is whether they will lose their visibility and airflow when swapping to Crimsafe and the answer is a resounding no. While these screens do have a thicker, tighter mesh, you can still see clearly out of your door, which means you can keep an eye on your kids as they play in the backyard or see who is at your front door. However, the benefit of the screens is that people passing by cannot see into your home, offering you a greater level of privacy.
You also don’t need to worry about airflow, as the mesh doesn’t restrict the flow of air at all. In fact, due to the added security, you will be able to leave your doors open allowing air flow to come through your house, even when you are in a different part of the house.
Easy to Clean
Crimsafe’s screens are easy to clean and maintain. They simply require a wash down with soapy water regularly (and then a clean with a clean cloth) to stop them looking dirty or unkempt from dust and particles in the air.
When it comes to considering the cost of a break-in, or to the cost of replacing your doors and windows from any manner of issues, Crimsafe screens are an affordable long term option to protect your home.
