Bushfires are an increasing concern for Australian home owners. Prowler Proof’s new Fire Safety guide is designed to give you peace of mind.

The new guide tells you anything you need to know about Prowler Proof screens in a bushfire – and in any other fire, for that matter. It includes a Product Guide as well as explanations of Bushfire Attack Levels and the Australian Standard 3959. You’ll also find a comprehensive glossary of terms.

As you would expect, most Prowler Proof products are suitable for bushfire prone areas. ForceField® is in fact one of very few security screens than has been independently tested and is approved for any Bushfire Attack Level…even Flame Zone, which is the most extreme level.

GuardianDiamond, Heritage and Insect screens fitted with a stainless steel mesh are approved up to Bushfire Attack Level 40. Prowler Proof Protec is approved up to Bushfire Attack level 29. AS 3959 requires mesh openings of less than 2 mm x 2 mm.
