Are Security Screens worth it?

When it comes to safety in the home, the windows are usually the first point of contact that a burglar might use to break into your property. However, did you know that there are a wide variety of reasons why installing security screens is a great idea? Let’s take a look at some of the biggest benefits of installing security screens.


This is arguably the biggest benefit of installing security screens. Security screens are made from woven stainless steel mesh. These get anchored into the window using a screw-clamp system, which secures the screen to the window, making it incredibly difficult for anyone to break.

If you want to be sure that when you’re at home (or even away) it won’t be broken into or damaged, security screens are the right choice.




If you live in a home with a boisterous dog or mischievous cat, you will know that a flyscreen won’t do! Crimsafe security screens won’t get damaged or broken if your beloved pet runs into them, meaning that you also never have to worry about your pet breaking free and hurting themselves.



As we all know, summers in Australia can be unbearable. If your home struggles with heat, security screens are a great option. Security screens mean that, no matter how long you have your windows open, you won’t have to worry about anyone breaking into your home through them, as windows with Crimsafe security screens have mesh that will prevent them from entering. Because they are made of mesh, it also means that air can flow freely through the screen, giving you great airflow throughout your home.

Where Can We Install Crimsafe Security Screen?


⮞ Hinged Doors

Quite often, the main entry points to your home are big hinged doors that look solid to most people. But to a professional burglar, they can look like an easy way in.

Crimsafe Hinged Security Screen Doors really do bolster your defences. Rigorous testing proves that our hinged security doors exceed industry standards and outperform competitors.

On one upright door jamb, the Crimsafe door is attached by three secure hinges. On the opposite door jamb, there’s a three-point locking mechanism. So you’ve got an incredibly strong barrier between you and any uninvited guest knocking on your door.

⮞ Sliding Doors

Many Australians think about just adding some flyscreens to their existing sliding door system. But wouldn’t it be great if you could keep out more than just the flies?

Crimsafe Sliding Screens are as secure as they are stylish. They can be installed in conjunction with an existing sliding door system. There’s a locking mechanism fitted into your door jamb. The doors are interlocked to the existing window frame. Plus, they’re secured top and bottom to prevent lateral lifting.

Your home is protected. And so are your views.

⮞ French Doors

French doors are sometimes targeted by burglars because they see them as an easy break-in point. That’s why Crimsafe developed double French door security screens. One screen is bolted top and bottom for rigid strength. The other screen locks to it with a three-point mechanism that triples the headaches for burglars. Anyone thinking about a quick and quiet break-in, can think again.

Best of all, the need for security won’t compromise the style of your home. Crimsafe’s design mirrors the form and function of your current doors to create a stylish visual balance.

⮞ Bi-fold Doors

Do you like the idea of opening your home up and letting the fun flow out into the yard? Well, Crimsafe Bi-Fold Security Screen Doors let you do just that.

Our multi-panel hinged door design can secure the widest of indoor/outdoor spaces. You’ll enjoy natural airflow when they’re closed. And when you want to remove the line between indoor and outdoor living, the panels just fold away.

⮞ Stacking Doors

If you love the versatility of stacking doors, Crimsafe has just the thing. With Crimsafe Stacking Security Doors it’s so easy to transition from totally secure to open and welcoming. The panels can be configured to lock in the centre or along with the door jambs on the right or left.

Each panel interlocks at a pre-designed meeting point. Once this connection has been made, you’ll enjoy peace of mind, and the natural light and airflow that keep you connected to the outside.


⮞ Hinged Windows

Burglars don’t just target the main entrances to your home. They’ll often check to see if there’s a side window that gives them an easy way in. That’s why Crimsafe has designed a hinged security screen that can be fitted to a variety of window types.

The design is ideal for single and multi-panel sliding windows, double-hung windows, single and multiple hoppers, casement windows, louvres, and fixed or sliding combinations. You decide if you’d prefer the screen to swing to the side or down when you need full access for cleaning.

When it’s locked into place, you have a strong barrier to deter intruders. You also get to enjoy a natural airflow into the room.

⮞ Fixed Windows

A lot of homes are fitted with Crimsafe’s Fixed Window Screens. Once the screens are locked into place, you can open your window and let the natural breezes flow through the room. So, it’s a particularly good solution if you have a home with sash windows or louvres.

Crimsafe Fixed Window Screens can be fitted into the flyscreen track of the window. They can also be outside mounted or within an existing frame, depending on the kind of visual finish you prefer.

As the name suggests, Crimsafe’s Fixed Screens are designed to be immovable. This means that they shouldn’t be fitted over windows that are part of your emergency exit plan.

⮞ Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are extremely popular. So are the sliding insect screens that many homes install. Unfortunately, while these screens may be good at keeping out bugs, they’re not very good at keeping out intruders. That’s why you should insist on Crimsafe Sliding Window Screens.

Crimsafe has designed a sliding security screen for single and multi-panel sliding windows. The screens can be custom fitted to a variety of window shapes and sizes, for a perfect fit. Plus, Crimsafe’s security screens feature patented screw-clamp technology for optimum strength.

⮞ Safe S Cape

Locking the house down is great. But are you also locking yourself in? It’s always good to have a fast way to get out of your home in an emergency. That’s why Crimsafe designed the Safe-S-Cape Security System for windows.

Safe-S-Cape Security Screens don’t need a key. You can unlock them from the inside with the push of a button. And because you want to have the easiest exit possible, you get to decide whether the screen swings in or out when it’s opened.


⮞ Patio Enclosures

The patio is your favourite place to be, isn’t it? It’s where you can sit back and enjoy the afternoon breezes as you take in the view. The only problem is, it’s often open to intruders, flies and bugs. That’s why Crimsafe has designed patio enclosures that keep the nasties out, while they let the air flow in.

Crimsafe patio enclosures are designed to adapt to an existing space or create a new one for your home.

Best of all, Crimsafe patio enclosures are super strong thanks to our patented technology with structural grade mesh and an exclusive Screw-Clamp system.

⮞ Garage and Storage Areas

Garages and storage areas can be targets for thieves, as they are often full of valuables but can be left unattended for periods of time. By securing garages and storage areas with Crimsafe, you gain several benefits including;

• Protecting your possessions from theft

• Protecting against hail and storm debris

• Allowing airflow to prevent mould and mildew

• Providing visibility through the mesh so intruders are more likely to be detected.
