At Prowler Proof, we’re dedicated to ‘creating a safer place’
for your family to live.
You can feel safe in your home, by installing Prowler Proof’s
Australian Standards tested and passed security screens.
The Australian Standards Security Test consist of six
separate tests that all have to be passed by the same test sample.
The test includes:
Dynamic impact test - The dynamic impact test is
designed to simulate an intruder trying to kick his way through a security door
or window. The test is performed with a bag full of lead shot and sand,
weighing more than 40 kg. The bag is smashed into the security screen with a
force of 100 joules. The test is repeated 5 times.
- Jemmy test - The jemmy test is designed to
simulate an intruder using a lever to get past the security door or window. The
test is performed with a large screwdriver at all locking, hinging and
fastening points. The force applied is up to 450 N (45 kg) for 20 seconds – way
beyond the capability of most potential intruders.
- Pull test - Imagine an intruder trying to pull
out your security screen…that’s what the pull test is all about. The security
door or window must be able to withstand pulling forces of up to 2 kN (200 kg)
for 20 seconds at various positions.
- Probe test - The probe test simulates an
intruder having created a gap and trying to get his hand inside to unlock a
door or a window. A deflecting force of 1.5 kN (150 kg) is applied to each
opposite side of the opening to increase the space enough to get a hand
- Knife shear test - The knife shear test
simulates a knife attack on your security screen. A heavy duty trimming knife
is dragged along a 250 mm line with a force of 150 N (15 kg) vertically and up
to 350 N (35 kg) horizontally. The test is repeated 3 times – each time with a
new blade – along the same line.
- Shear test - Cutting pliers are popular tools
among burglars. The shear test simulates a cutting plier attack on a security
screen. The shearing tool applies increasing pressure until the sample strand breaks.
The force required to break one strand must be at least 3 kN (300 kg).
