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.
Passed. Protec is one of only two complete security screens on the Australian market to pass the acetic acid salt spray test. Prowler Proof ForceField® is the other.
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.
Protec 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 +35º C with almost 100% humidity.
Passed. Protec is one of very few complete security screens that have passed the test – most manufacturers only test the mesh.
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 Protec security screen.
