Window screens can be more than a fly screen – 5 reasons why you need to add Crimsafe Screens to your next home improvement project.

Crimsafe security windows screens offer an additional element of safety and security from the elements and unwanted intruders. All the while allowing natural ventilation and achieving a more energy-efficient environment in your home.

If you’re looking for additional peace of mind that’s also a breath of fresh air, Crimsafe has you covered. Check out our range of window security screens in a selection of styles and colors that can be custom-made to suit all shapes, sizes, and window configurations without compromising on design, style, or security.

Here are five more reasons to invest in Crimsafe window security screens for your home beyond the obvious safety and security benefits.

Fall prevention

Crimsafe window security screens are professionally fitted and strong enough to keep littlies safe and prevent accidental falls from upper levels. In fact, all our window security screens are compliant with the National Construction Code for the Protection of Openable Windows. Choose from our patented Safe-S-Cape window that has a full-length opening bar for an easy escape or for a simple cleaning or standard Fixed windows. Fixed windows are locked into place but both applications are made-to-measure for your home by an authorized Crimsafe Dealer in your local area.

Unhindered views

Forget unsightly burglar bars on windows that keep you safe but obstruct your outlook. Crimsafe window security screens offer unrestricted views and promote the feeling of openness. Options include Safe-S-Cape windows and Fixed windows offering a more secure alternative to flyscreens. Crimsafe screens have a clear advantage when it comes to enjoying the outside views.

Fresh air and breezes

Let the fresh air and natural cooling breezes flow around your home without skimping on safety and security. Free-flowing air is important to increase evaporation, decrease humidity and carry the heat outside buildings. Fresh air is also known to increase the amount of oxygen in your body to help support healthy white blood cells that fight off bacteria and other illnesses.

Impact Resistant

A homeowner’s nightmare is having their home destroyed by outside forces. Damage to your home can be caused by an intruder or simply the neighborhood kids playing baseball or a stray golf ball. Replacing a window is expensive and frustrating. Crimsafe window screens are resistant to impact meaning your wallet won’t hurt every time you hear “FORE”. Crimsafe is also tough enough to provide extra protection during a storm or hurricane and block hailstones and windborne debris. Brushfires? No sweat. Crimsafe provides the highest level of protection from ember attack, radiant heat, and the impact of burning matter on glass.

Insect Protection

Screen all unwanted guests – big or small. Protect your family and home from uninvited visitors – from bugs and insects to burglars and intruders – with Crimsafe security screens. Screened windows offer a stylish way to enjoy the fresh air minus the mosquitos and flies. Patio enclosures are also a great way to allow the whole family to enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about insects or natural predators like coyotes, foxes, snakes, or cougars. Protects your furry friends too!


(BONUS) Crimsafe is Energy Efficient

The Department of Energy estimates that 30% of a home’s heating energy is lost through windows and glass alone will not block harmful UV light. Crimsafe’s Tensile Tuff® mesh makes your home more energy efficient by blocking up to 53% of solar heat gain and 62% of UV rays and harnessing natural sources of cooling such as fresh air and breezes. Pretty cool huh?
