Nestled amongst bushland in Buderim’s hills, this home from the front looks quite modest, however, with its innovative architectural design it was built over two levels taking advantage of the hillside space with most of the entertaining areas and bedrooms backing onto a lovely scenic bushland aspect on the south-east side of the home.

There were a few of reasons the owners decided to go with Prowler Proof for their home, the main reasons being that they had a friend who had recommended Cameron of East Coast Security Screens for his personable service and meticulous attention to detail, as well as the Prowler Proof product for its high quality and resistance to corrosion.

Corrosion was a concern for this home owner. Living on the Sunshine Coast, the coastal breezes mean there is more salt in the air, making items around the home more susceptible to corrosion. Whenever two different metals interact there's a risk of corrosion. Prowler Proof screens are welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets, making them more corrosion-resistant than other security screens.

This corrosion resistance has been put to the test. ForceField is one of very few complete security screens that has passed the 1,000 hour neutral salt spray test and one of only two complete security screens on the market – Prowler Proof Protec is the other – to have passed the 1,000 hour acetic acid salt spray test. With a pH similar to vinegar, acetic acid salt spray is 10,000 times more acidic than neutral salt spray. ForceField’s 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh has survived a 10,000 hour neutral salt spray test as well.

The owner also decided on ForceField, as they have beautiful bushland views and fresh breezes flowing around the area, and it was important to them that the home had a sense of space, light and airflow, to enable them to take advantage of the views and benefits of their private leafy setting.

ForceField’s mesh provides an ‘open area’ of 42.5%, and with an aperture of each opening at 1.62mm, it means the creepy crawlies are kept outside, while still allowing maximum visibility, with viewing angles of up to 156 degrees, and maximum ventilation.

Cameron from East Coast Security Screens, and the team at Prowler Proof are glad that we have been able to create a safer place for this family to live.
