When looking at security screens for their beautiful, island holiday home, the homeowners didn’t want to spend their weekends and holidays cleaning security screens, but still wanted to increase security while the home was unattended.

The home was also built before the changes to the National Construction Code for fall prevention, so had some unprotected windows at height that the homeowner wanted to ensure were brought up to the code, so anyone visiting the home would be safe from falls.

Prowler Proof Protec was chosen for this home. Protec has been tested to AS5039 for security. Not only is Protec suitable for stopping intruders, but the perforated aluminium mesh paired with the aluminium frame, and secured with Prowler Proof’s unique bonded fixing method, it’s ideal for coastal applications, as you don’t have the issue of dissimilar metals reacting and potentially causing electrolysis over time.

The selection of Prowler Proof Protec Hinge Window security screens means regular cleaning, as is required for coastal homes, is easy as the homeowner can open the screens, and clean both the glass and screens as required.
