New Zealand experiences a wide range of harsh weather conditions. Storms, cyclones and bushfires are regular occurrences that can wreak havoc on homes and businesses.
Crimsafe has developed specialty products to provide bushfire and cyclone protection.
Crimsafe has tested its security screens to meet the highest levels in bushfire protection, and can be used in bushfire prone areas up to and including those rated BAL-FZ.
Crimsafe’s Tensile-Tuff® stainless steel mesh is specially designed to a size and shape (1.5mm x 1.5mm aperture) that meets the requirements of the Australian Standard AS 3959-2009 bushfire protection guidelines and prevents ember penetration during bushfires.
Cyclone debris protection
A wide range of Crimsafe products are approved for use in Australia’s Cyclone regions C & D, including Crimsafe doors, windows and Crimsafe Safe-S-Capes®, which all meet the 36 m/s requirement.
Our specially designed Crimsafe Cyclone Debris Screens feature a unique ‘build-out’ installation to provide even greater protection. They pass the highest levels for Cyclone Debris Screening required for regions C & D, withstanding impact up to 44 m/s.
Crimsafe Cyclone Debris screens can protect your home or business against storm driven debris from wind gusts up to 392kph, while providing security from intruders, superior airflow and outlook.
Our research and development program is continually advancing the limits of Crimsafe Cyclone Debris Screen performance.
Crimsafe’s patented technology system makes our stainless-steel security screens incredibly strong.
We’ve put our products to the test, again and again- not just against a potential intruder, but against the threat of extreme weather conditions.
Thicker, stronger mesh
Our specially developed Crimsafe Tensile-Tuff® mesh uses 0.9mm 304 structural-grade stainless steel.
This means that our woven mesh is up to 26.5% thicker than most other mesh products on the market that use 0.8mm wire.
Crimsafe screens are harder to cut and penetrate, providing protection from the impact of hail and wind-borne debris. The small aperture size also helps prevent the spread of embers and sparks during fires.
Unique fastening system
We use Crimsafe’s exclusive Screw-ClampTM system to secure Tensile-Tuff ® mesh to the frames, giving our security screens their exceptional strength.
These tamper-resistant screws and metal clamps hold the mesh in a ‘vice-like’ grip in the frame, giving our screens their incredible strength. It is this patented system that allows them to withstand tremendous force by absorbing and dispersing impact, strongly resisting being pulled out of the frame.
In addition, the metal fastening system will not melt during a fire, compared to the plastic wedging systems used by many competitor products.
Crimsafe Ultimate’s protective cover
If you decide to install products from our Crimsafe Ultimate range – the new generation of Crimsafe – the snap-on cover and heavy-duty clamping system make these screens 40% stronger than our regular product. Crimsafe Ultimate is the next level in security screen strength and durability.
Crimsafe aluminium frames are powder-coated for a beautiful finish. A wide range of standard colours are available.
Custom colours may be available on request. The standard range of colours is shown below.
