Crimsafe® is the ultimate in hurricane and security protection originating in Australia but now available in the U.S. through Rollshield.
Crimsafe® is a stainless steel security mesh and frame system. Has five times the screws increasing the strength and security. Unlike other mesh security products in the market, Crimsafe® utilizes a double clamping system designed to increase the clamp-to-mesh contact area, thereby providing a stronger and more secure grip on the mesh.
Look at the picture at right and you can see how 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 combination mechanically fastens the mesh to the frame and creates a barrier that can't be kicked in - The Screw-ClampedTM Mesh that Beats More Burglars.
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.
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. Take a look below at how Crimsafe ® mesh stands up to an Australian Standards test called, funnily enough, "The Knife Shear Test". There's 15kg of force pushing the knife into the mesh, and 30kg's pulling it along the face of the mesh. You can see that Crimsafe® is successful because the tip of the knife doesn't penetrate the mesh, it just skips over it. It's an incredibly tough test to pass, but Crimsafe ® does it easily.
But the real proof that Crimsafe's® Tensile Tuff® Security mesh is something special is this... before Crimsafe® came on the market, nobody could even weave .9mm Premium 304 grade Security Steel into the commercial mesh that Crimsafe® is made of! Crimsafe® had to commission a wire products manufacturer to make special machinery before it could be done.
Secret coating means long life and good looks
One last 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. The commercial powder coating actively works against the buildup of airborne particles and makes cleaning easier.
To prove its worth, test samples of Crimsafe® mesh were sent to undergo the Salt Spray Test. This is a test that measures corrosion resistance when exposed to accelerated weathering conditions. A salt solution is sprayed at the test samples for 1000 hours, simulating 10 years of environmental exposure. Crimsafe® passed easily.
So when we say Crimsafe® beats more burglars...
We really mean it.
Crimsafe-S-Capes are keyless emergency exit products for window spaces. They let you quickly exit in a fire or other emergency, but they are just as hard to penetrate as all our other products because they feature Crimsafe's® screw-clamped mesh as well as a triple "anti-crowbar" design that protects the lock.
Crimsafe® home security doors are available in standard frames, house cast to colonial-style panels. Your choice of sliding or hinged. All of our doors feature the unique Crimsafe screw-clampTM system is tamper-resistant screws go through a metal clamp, then through the Tensile Tuff® Security mesh and then they grip right into the frame, to hold the mesh from being kicked out.
Crimsafe® Doors are the only security system to feature the unique screw-clampTM design, which gives them enough strength to resist a determined intruder.
The determinant for intruders is the amount of metal a would-be thief needs to bash or attempt to pry open. Trying to tamper with the screws is also an ineffective activity due to the Tamper-Resistance Screws exclusively to Crimsafe®. Screws can only be applied or removed by a tool registered with Crimsafe® This ensures the integrity of your security system.
Crimsafe® Compared to the "me too" Products
Structural Grade 304 stainless steel (304 structural grade stainless steel remains stronger AND absorbs more energy in an attack situation.
Thicker Mesh. Crimsafe® is 0.9mm thick. Majority of other products use 0.8mm strands.
Passes more tests.
Exceeds security screen impact levels, withstanding a singular impact of up to 1200 joules of energy
Attained 3000 hours in the 1000hr salt spray test with no sign of corrosion, no loss of adhesion and no blistering
44m/s windborne cyclonic debris screening
Santoprene Frame Bead. Santoprene rubber allows rainwater to wash away airborne particles that build up on the screen and stops it collecting on the top edge of the screen frame.
