The difference between Crimsafe Regular and Crimsafe Ultimate
We have two product tiers – Crimsafe Ultimate and Crimsafe Regular. The major differences between the two lines is that Crimsafe Ultimate:
- is much stronger than our Regular production line
- features a clip-on cover that hides the screws and creates a smooth, streamlined look
Crimsafe Regular is our original product line. It has set the standard in security screen strength and design and continues to be the baseline for Crimsafe’s commitment to exceptional quality and durability.
- Ultimate Hinged Door
- Ultimate French Door
- Ultimate Sliding Door Windows
- Ultimate Inswing Safe‐S‐Cape
- Ultimate Patio Enclosure
In the Crimsafe Ultimate range, we’ve evolved the benefits of regular Crimsafe security screens to the next level – delivering ultimate security, ultimate flexibility, and the ultimate in good looks.

Crimsafe Ultimate’s unique sealing system offers even more protection against both intruders and environmental forces, as well as giving the screens a smooth profile for a sleek modern look.
We’re so confident of Crimsafe Ultimate’s strength and performance, we offer a 10-year warranty if possible.

Product Features and Benefits
In addition to all the features highlighted above, Crimsafe Ultimate also comes with all of the standard benefits you can expect from any Crimsafe product.
Crimsafe has been independently tested and is the strongest security screen available on the market.
The University of Queensland conducted extensive research, testing a wide range of security screens for their ability to withstand impact, simulating the force someone could apply in an attempted break-in.
Crimsafe Ultimate is 40% stronger than our Regular product, and seven times stronger than the impact level required by industry standards.
We love our outdoor lifestyle, but some things need to stay outside. Bugs and insects can really spoil the party. Crimsafe security screens keep out all unwanted intruders, even the smallest ones.
One of the greatest benefits of Crimsafe is the ability to enjoy a breeze and some fresh air, without compromising your security.
Crimsafe allows you to leave your windows open while at home, making the most of natural light and fresh air, with the comfort of knowing your family is kept safe from unwanted intruders.
Crimsafe products are securely mounted and won’t pop out when pushed. You can confidently open your windows and enjoy a breeze without concern of children or animals falling from a window.
The greatest source of heat gain, or loss, in a home occurs through glass windows and doors. Crimsafe’s Tensile-Tuff® stainless steel mesh blocks up to 53% of solar heat gain and 62% of UV rays, keeping your home much cooler in summer.
In winter, Crimsafe screens also help stop heat loss, keeping your home warmer.
This means you’ll rely less on AC and heating, saving you money on power bills.
Harsh weather conditions can batter our homes and cause damage. Crimsafe screens protect your home from more than just intruders:
- Heat protection – as mentioned above, our screens block up to 53% of solar heat gain
- UV protection – blocking up to 62% of UV rays not only helps reduce heat but can also help prevent the fading of soft furnishings
- Hailstones and flying debris – our screens act as a barrier for hail and other wind-borne debris, to protect glass windows and doors from breaking
- Fire protection- Crimsafe mesh blocks 59% of radiant heat and flames, which slows down the spread of fire from one floor to another, or to neighboring buildings
- Hurricane protection- Crimsafe offers a specially designed Hurricane Protection Screen for buildings in high-risk hurricane areas
It’s important to feel safe, but nobody wants to feel trapped inside a prison. Crimsafe security screens are so strong, they don’t need unsightly bars or grilles – so you can maintain a feeling of open space and unobstructed views.
Because of Crimsafe’s patented technology system, our stainless-steel security screens are incredibly strong. We’ve put our products to the test over and again; not just against possible intruders but against the threat of extreme weather conditions.
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 stronger than the rest. They are harder to cut and penetrate, providing impact protection from hail and wind-borne debris. The small holes in the mesh also help prevent the spread of embers and sparks during fires.
Crimsafe security screens get their exceptional strength from our exclusive Screw-Clamp™ system to secure the Tensile-Tuff® mesh to the frames.
These tamper-resistant screws and metal clamps hold the mesh in a ‘vice-like’ grip in the frame. It is this patented system that allows them to stand up to tremendous force, absorbing and dispersing impacts without being pulled out of the frame.
In addition, unlike the plastic wedging systems used by competitor products, the metal fastening system will not melt during a fire.
Products from our Crimsafe Ultimate range – the new generation of Crimsafe – feature a snap-on cover and heavy-duty clamping system that make these screens 40% stronger than our regular product line. Crimsafe Ultimate is the next level in security screen strength and durability.
