Are security screens worth it?

Security screens prove their worth as investments. With our screens, you get maximum security without compromising the comfortable look and feel of your home. Mesh screens and frames provide your home or business with simple clean lines that look as good as the feeling of security they provide.


What are security screens?

How do security screens work?

We use Crimsafe’s exclusive Screw-Clamp(TM) system to secure Tensile-Tuff ® mesh to the frames. This gives our security screens their exceptional strength.

These tamper-resistant screws and metal clamps hold the mesh in a ‘vice-like’ grip in the frame. This gives our screens their incredible strength. This patented system allows them to withstand tremendous force by absorbing and dispersing impact. This prevents them from pulling out of the frame.

Security screens are harder to cut and penetrate, keeping out all unwelcome guests, from burglars to bugs.


How much do security screens cost?

Since every Crimsafe security screen comes customized, you will need to get a personalized quote from one of our verified vendors.
