It is well known that Crimsafe screens and doors are the toughest on the market, but we often get asked if Crimsafe can still be broken into. The answer? It’s difficult.
Break-ins happen daily, it doesn’t matter if you live in the city or the country, in an apartment or a house, thieves strike when they see an opportunity to, and when they feel or know there is something valuable within the home.
Most break-ins are from forced entry – that is, through breaking windows, kicking in doors or picking locks. Instruments used to break in tend to be small and easy to hide – screwdrivers and crowbars for example. Because they are commonly used tools, they aren’t really traceable.
This is where Crimsafe really comes into it’s own. Crimsafe security screens and doors are made with thick mesh and a screw clamp system that makes them the toughest screens and doors on the market – and much tougher than your standard flyscreens or security screens.
So how tough is Crimsafe against would-be intruders? The mesh used cannot break under attack, it is highly resistant to being cut with a knife or similar object and it can take the force of at least a Category 3 cyclone – that’s pretty tough. While these kinds of force will leave a dent in the mesh, and you may like to have them replaced afterwards, unlike other screens, they won’t break apart when impacted.
These screens and doors well exceed the Australian Standards testing in all three of their ranges – standard, heavy duty and commercial.

However you can make your home more secure through the use of Crimsafe security screens and doors.
