is a stainless steel security mesh and frame system. It is used to secure doors, windows and outdoor areas from intruders and insects alike. From a distance, it looks like flyscreen. And it does the same job of keeping your house cool in Summer while keeping mosquitoes out. But Crimsafe is unlike any other flyscreen you've ever seen, because it makes your home virtually impenetrable to thieves.
Two special features mean it beats more burglars...
- The mesh is 'screw-clamped™' so it can't be kicked out.
The Crimsafe mesh is sandwiched between two serrated pieces of aluminium that clamp the mesh tight. One is an aluminium strip with a hook and the other is the frame that the strip hooks into. But then, all three are screwed together with stainless steel tamper-resistant screws and the different components are separated by a Santoprene (rubber) bead to eliminate electrolysis that could lead to corrosion.
This system is internationally patented and unique. Only Crimsafe features screws driven through both the clamp and the mesh and right into the frame on the other side, to provide incredible strength.
Crimsafe's mesh is 0.9mm thick and precisely woven, so every strand backs up the others.
Research shows that the most common method of entry through security screens is a well-placed series of kicks that bust the screen apart. That won't work with Crimsafe. You can kick at Crimsafe's Tensile Tuff Security mesh repeatedly, and you will definitely injure yourself before you break through it.
It's also incredibly difficult to cut Crimsafe Tenisle Tuff® Security mesh. You can take a machete and hack away at the mesh and you'll have a hard time getting anywhere. You might put a few holes in it but you won't be able to fit through them. That's because Crimsafe's Security mesh has such strong ‘shear' resistance. What that means is that a burglar can't make a hole in the mesh by stabbing it, and then make it bigger by using his weight to drag a knife through it.
Secret coating means long life and good looks.
One more fact... The coating that goes on Crimsafe's stainless steel mesh gives it that cool black look, but it is purposefully designed to protect it from the environment. It took a long time to develop it in conjunction with Dulux but Crimsafe stuck at it 'til it was right. The formula cannot be revealed, but it is a High Durability coating that contains additives to ensure long life and permanent good looks.
A wind loading tests was undertaken in accordance to AS 1170.2 - 1989 Wind Loads and Noise Regeneration Tests on a shutter panel supplied by Ozroll.
The noise regeneration tests were undertaken by MechTest the consulting arm of the Department of Mechanical Engineering (Adelaide University). The design pressure for the wind loading tests were calculated by Dr Rudi Seracino, the specialist consultant, using the procedure outlined in AS 1170.
The cyclic wind loading tests were carried out under the supervision of Dr Rudi Seracino. Two tests were required: The first test was used to test the strength of the shutters and the second test was to test the strength of the frame that holds the shutters.
The test rig conforms to the requirements of AS4040.0-1992 and consists of two fixed vertical sides and a moveable base between the sides. The base is supported on hydraulic jacks and can be moved vertically. The panel supports are fastened to the sides of the test rig and the panel under test is fastened to the supports. Loads are applied to the panel by placing airbags between the panel and the base of the test rig. For cyclonic loading the base is raised and lowered hydraulically, compressing the airbags and hence, applying a pressure load to the panel. The movement of the base is controlled electronically via pressure transducers in the airbags to generate the correct upper and lower pressure limit in the loading cycle. The lower limit is set to a value slightly above zero and below 10% of the upper limit, as specified in AS4040.3-1992. The loading rate does not exceed 3Hz. A calibrated pressure meter is used to monitor the pressure in the airbags during the test.
The behaviour of the shutters and the frame was observed during the loading sequence and it was found that they satisfy the requirements of AS4040.3-1992 Clause 6.3 and hence, passed the strength limit state test.
There louvres are manufactured from high grade, architectural quality extruded aluminium. Commonly used as balcony shutters in a variety of configurations: Bi-Fold, Sliding, Hinged, Fixed, and Stacking.
Cyclone testing has been conducted up to Cyclone Tracy forces. Each louvre blade has been load tested to 100kg, making it the strongest on the market.
The blade has a 135-degree rotation for total controllability
