St. John’s College – home to 320 students at the University of Queensland – installed more than 100 ForceField® security screens in 2014. They recently came back for more but this time they chose Protec. Business Manager Erin Dieperink tells the story…
“Our experience with ForceField® has been brilliant. After more than a year we haven’t had a single problem – and the screens still look brand new. So when I contacted Prowler Proof in regards to new security screens, I had ForceField® in mind. But I was keen on keeping the cost as low as possible.”
“Prowler Proof had just launched Protec. Protec’s screen is a perforated aluminium sheet rather than ForceField’s stainless steel mesh. Our cost savings would be significant so we decided to get a sample made up. I had concerns about airflow because the aluminium sheet is somewhat thicker than ForceField’s stainless steel mesh. But as it turned out, breezes travel through beautifully.”
“We placed our order for 62 window screens just before the Christmas shutdown – still all screens arrived 7 days later, ready to install. The screens look beautiful – just like with ForceField®, you don’t feel like you’re in prison. Yet you can have confidence they will keep intruders of any size out, and let air and light in. Protec is a fraction darker than ForceField® but that is not necessarily a bad thing since most of the screens are installed in bedrooms.”
In our Project Gallery you can see what Prowler Proof products look like in almost any residential or commercial application.
The list of commercial projects is long and diverse. It includes universities, hospitals, housing developments…even a tennis club. Overseas projects include a high school in Hawaii and court offices in the Solomon Islands.
