If you’ve only had screen doors with standard flyscreen before, you know that it is fairly easy to replace. But what about when it comes to security doors that have a specific and patented mesh?

In reality, the mesh on your security door shouldn’t need to be replaced unless someone tries to break into your home. On a quality security door, like Crimsafe, the mesh is made from stainless steel so rather strong and not prone to breaking down.

How to Avoid Replacing Security Door Mesh

The best way to avoid having to replace your security door mesh is to stay on top of the recommended cleaning and maintenance. Stainless steel mesh is similar to an air conditioner filter – dust particles will get caught, but if cleaned regularly, they won’t cause an issue.

Cleaning Crimsafe Mesh

Crimsafe screens are made from 304 Grade stainless steel which has a lifespan of around 65 years. It is made with a high grade pre-treatment and then coated with a durable UV fade-resistant powder, Between the treatment and the powder coating, as long as they remain in place, Crimsafe won’t rust.

These screens are easy to clean and require nothing more than a wash down of the frames and mesh with Crimsafe Wash and Wax (or a standard car wash and wax) in warm water using either  soft-non abrasive brush. It’s then a matter of just wiping down with clean water.

How Often Do I Clean Security Door Mesh?

Depending on where you live, the recommended time frame for cleaning your security door mesh changes. Here are the recommendations:

  • More than 10km from a beach or bay – every 6 months
  • 1km to 10km from a beach or bay – every 2 to 3 months
  • 500m to 1km from a beach or 100m to 1km from a bay – every 2 to 4 weeks
  • Within 500m from a beachfront or 100m from a sheltered bay – every 1 to 2 weeks

Keeping up a regular cleaning schedule will ensure that your mesh screens are cleaned of dust and salt air build up which can cause a stained appearance.
