Determine your security needs: Assess the level of security you require based on your home, location, and personal preferences. Identify potential entry points and vulnerable areas of your house. Consider the type of security screen door and window screens you need and make sure they meet Australian standards for security. The Prowler Proof ForceField® and Protec products provide the highest level of protection for your home and family’s safety.

Choose high-quality products: A screen product is only considered a security product if it has passed vigorous independent testing. Barrier screen products will not have passed these tests. Ask your dealer if the product they’re supplying has passed the Australian Standards for a security product and look out for the security compliance sticker on the product which differentiates your product from cheaper barrier screens. 

The installation of security screens is just as important as their manufacture: Proper installation is critical to the effectiveness of security screens and windows. Making sure your installer is part of the National Security Screen Association (NSSA) is the best way to know your installation will be installed to the Australian Standards AS 5040: Installation of Security Screen Doors and Window Grilles.

Maintain your security screens and windows: Regularly clean and inspect your security screens and windows to ensure they are functioning correctly and not damaged. Repair or replace any damaged or worn-out parts promptly. 

By following these steps, you can build a stronger home with security screen doors and windows that offer enhanced protection, ventilation, and energy efficiency.
