  • Include a 3 point lock 

  • Have a 5 pin cylinder 

  • Hinge door – Have three tamper resistant security hinges 

  • Sliding door – Have heavy duty interlocks 

  • Have passed all six tests in AS5039 the Australian Standards for performance of security screen doors and security window grilles.
