The 1,000 hour acetic acid salt spray test is pure torture. 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.
Passed. Prowler Proof is the only brand on the Australian market to pass the acetic acid salt spray test.
If you live in a coastal area or near industrial areas, corrosion is your insect screen’s worst enemy. Prowler Proof is your safe choice. No other brand has passed the 1,000 hour acetic acid salt spray test. No other brand is covered by a 10 year replacement warranty.
All Prowler Proof products have 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 +35º C with almost 100% humidity.
Passed. Even though the test went beyond 1,000 hours – 1,069 hours to be exact – there was no visible corrosion on the Prowler Proof product.
Thanks to the way they are built, Prowler Proof insect screens are the most corrosion-resistant on the market. Even with very little maintenance they will remain corrosion-free. Cleaning every six months – every three months in coastal or industrial regions – is all it takes. Insect screens that are held together by screws or rivets can require cleaning as often as every 2-4 weeks in coastal regions.
