ForceField® Corrosion

Whenever two different metals interact there's a risk of corrosion. So the fact that Prowler Proof is welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets makes it more corrosion-resistant than other security screens. ForceField is one of very few complete security screens that has passed the 1,000 hour neutral salt spray test – most manufacturers only test the mesh. But we took it a step further. As one of only two complete security screens on the market – Prowler Proof Protec is the other – ForceField has also 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. Prowler Proof is one of only 10 Qualicoat approved powder coating applicators in Australia, and the only security screen manufacturer.

Acetic acid salt spray test (AS 2331.3.2)

The Test

The 1,000 hour acetic acid salt spray test is pure torture for a security screen. Acetic acid salt spray is not only saltier than sea water, it's also 10,000 times more acidic. The test takes place in an enclosed chamber at a temperature of +35ºC with almost 100% humidity.

The Result

Passed. ForceField® is one of only two complete security screens on the Australian market to pass the acetic acid salt spray test – Prowler Proof Protec is the other. ForceField's 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh has survived a 10,000 hour neutral salt spray test as well.

Your Benefit

If you live in a coastal area or near industrial areas, corrosion is your security screen's worst enemy. Prowler Proof is your safe choice. No other brand of security screen has passed the 1,000 hour acetic acid salt spray test. No other brand is covered by a 10 year replacement warranty.

Neutral salt spray test (AS 2331.3.1)

The Test

ForceField® has been tested to the Australian Standard 2331 which requires the product to survive a 1,000 hour neutral salt spray test. This test is an accelerated corrosion process that takes place in an enclosed chamber. The spray is saltier than sea water and the temperature is maintained at +35ºC with almost 100% humidity.

The Result

Passed. ForceField® is one of very few complete security screens that have passed the test – most manufacturers only test the mesh. ForceField's 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh has actually survived a 10,000 hour salt spray test.

Your Benefit

Prowler Proof is the most corrosion-resistant security screen on the market. Quite simply because it is welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets. Whenever two different metals interact there's a risk of corrosion. This risk is eliminated in a ForceField® security screen.
