What is Crimsafe®?

Crimsafe 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 may look like flyscreen and does the same job of keeping your house cool in summer while keeping mosquitoes out yet unlike any flyscreen, Crimsafe is a purpose built stainless steel security system, capable of providing tremendous resistance against intruders.


Look at the picture below 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. All three parts are screwed together with stainless steel tamper-resistant screws, 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-Clamp™ Mesh that Beats More Burglars".

The Screw-Clamp™ system is 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 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.

The real proof that Crimsafe's Tensile-Tuff Security mesh is something special is, 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.

The coating means long life and good looks

The coating that goes on Crimsafe's stainless steel mesh gives it that cool black look. This is purposefully designed to protect it from the environment.

It took a long time to develop it but Crimsafe stuck at it until 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 build-up 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 test samples were sent to undergo the prohesion accelerated salt spray and cyclic test  for 3000 hours, simulating 30 years of environmental exposure.

Did the Crimsafe samples stand up to the test? Yes, absolutely!


So when Crimsafe says it beats more burglars...

They really mean it. Burglars don't have a long time to spend trying to get into your home. They must get in, quickly, quietly, and get out. It's too damned hard to get through Crimsafe. So burglars will give up and move on.
