Prowler Proof today …
Prowler Proof manufactures Australia's best residential security screens in Australia's only world class manufacturing facility. Produced in a computer controlled hi-tech environment, Prowler Proof costs no more than old fashioned security screens with screws or rivets, put together by hand. Still Prowler Proof is stronger, looks better and offers better corrosion protection than any other security screen. You don't have to take our word for it: Prowler Proof has passed every conceivable test with flying colours and all test results are available right here on our website.
A welded security screen is stronger…and looks better!
A weld can be stronger than the parts joined
The main difference between Prowler Proof and other security screens is that all Prowler Proof products have a fully welded frame. A weld joins two parts together, a screw or a rivet merely hold two parts together. A weld can actually be stronger than the parts joined…and it looks better than screws or rivets, too.
With its seamless welded corners a Prowler Proof security screen looks like it's made in one piece. It feels that way, too. You will immediately notice the difference when you compare Prowler Proof with a product that is held together by screws or rivets. Prowler Proof feels stronger because it is stronger.
No risk of corrosion caused by metals interacting
Whenever two different metals interact, there's a risk of corrosion. With no screws or rivets to penetrate the frame and the mesh in order to keep them together, this risk is eliminated in a Prowler Proof security screen. Another huge advantage of a welded security screen.
Above and beyond the standards
Prowler Proof products meet or exceed all relevant Australian Standards…as well as some even tougher international standards. These tests include simulated burglar attacks with a knife, a screwdriver, cutting pliers…kicking and pulling. No match for ForceField®, Protec or any Diamond product.
Imagine being hit by 5 steel bullets less than a centimetre in diameter at 170km/h plus. Or a 4kg timber block at more than 100km/h. That is what is required by the Australian Standards Cyclone Test and Prowler Proof ForceField® passed with flying colour. ForceField® has also passed the American Standards Hurricane Test.
Salt water, fire and sun
All Prowler Proof products have survived a 1000-hour Salt-Spray Test with no signs of corrosion. ForceField, Guardian and Protec are approved for buildings in bushfire prone areas… other Prowler Proof products just need the optional stainless steel insect gauze to comply. A European test revealed that ForceField® reduces heat and UV light by 55%. We could go on…
Prowler Proof has manufactured high quality security doors and window screens since 1984. Always on the cutting edge, welding robots and online ordering were introduced last century. This century saw us introduce the paperless factory and ForceField the strongest and best looking security screen on the market. In 2008 we were a double finalist int he Telstra Business Awards and in 2012 we achieved a World Class ranking on the PROBE Manufacturing Global Benchmark.
