Boosting home security is a real no-brainer. We all have things we want to protect, from family members and pets to personal belongings. For extra insurance against break-ins and theft, many people install security cameras and smart locks, but it’s long been known that an installation of high-quality screens is the best foundation for any effective security system.  

Providing your home with its first line of defence, the security door is a must. But criminals don’t always walk straight up to the front door. So, what about security windows? It’s just as likely, if not more so, for potential burglars to attempt a break-in via windows, so if you’re serious about protecting your property and loved ones, this is a step you shouldn’t take lightly. 

Luckily, there’s one manufacturer of security screens who delivers maximum protection for every entry point in your home. Introducing – Crimsafe!

The Different Types of Crimsafe Windows

Crimsafe offers a premium range of window options to suit different needs and architectural styles. Whether you live in a high-crime area and want to make sure your screens are extra thick, or you have unusually shaped windows that defy standard sizing, don’t worry. Crimsafe has different strengths and customised sizing options to suit any residential or commercial building. These include:

  • Hinged Windows

    A hinged, awning, or casement window is one which has hinges on the top or sides, allowing it to be pushed out to a certain degree. These can be great for additional ventilation control, as well as areas that require easy access for cleaning, and emergency exits. While it may seem difficult to find screens for these, Crimsafe offer regular strength or ultimate strength screens for hinged windows of all sizes.

  • Fixed Windows

    If you have picture windows that aren’t functional, you may think security windows won’t be necessary. In fact, it might even seem like a shame to obscure your views with a screen. However, Crimsafe screens come with the benefit of having no bars or grilles, preserving your views while protecting your windows from being broken into. These come in regular, classic, and ultimate strengths, so you can choose how much impact you’d like them to withstand, the number of tamper-resistant screws, and other benefits.

  • Sliding Windows

In the past, the choices for sliding window security were mainly unattractive flyscreens. If you’d like to keep your sliding windows open in the summer without letting the bugs in, you can kill two birds with one stone and keep your property secure at the same time. With regular and ultimate strengths available, Crimsafe security screens for sliding windows make it easy to enjoy the breeze without compromising on safety.

  • Safe-S-Cape

    When it comes to safe options, Crimsafe go above and beyond to provide the most advanced options on the market. This includes their own security window mechanism called the Safe-S-Cape. In the event of a fire or other hazard, some security screens can do the opposite of what they’re intended to do – they can trap people inside along with the security risk. The Safe-S-Cape comes with a quick release button, allowing anyone inside to escape with ease if they ever need to. You can also choose between inside-opening or outside-opening.

What Sets Crimsafe Windows Apart?

Crimsafe have earned their reputation for being the best on the market due to an unparalleled combination of strength, durability, and functionality. Their patented high-strength, stainless steel Tensile-Tuff mesh is tightly woven and screw-clamped into a robust frame. This innovative screw-clamp system makes Crimsafe screens nearly impossible to tear away. With rigorous testing that exceeds Australian standard requirements, they’ve proven to withstand higher impacts than competing screens, offering supreme resistance to knife attacks and jemmying.

But apart from unbeatable protection against home invasions, Crimsafe windows also come with a range of other benefits. From custom sizing to style options, you can bump up your property’s value by increasing both security and curb appeal. Choose from a variety of colours, including woodgrain and anodised finishes, to make sure your new screens fit perfectly into the aesthetics of your home.

Their lack of bars and grilles allow for plenty of fresh air to circulate through the building, while the thickness of their mesh ensures energy efficiency by blocking solar heat and UV rays. This means you can save money on air-conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter. They’ve even been shown to withstand extreme weather conditions like cyclones and bushfires, effectively deflecting falling debris and radiant heat. These are safety measures you just can’t get from alarm systems alone!
