ForceField®

ForceField
ForceField security doors and window screens are welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets. A weld is stronger than any screw or rivet…and it looks better too. With its seamless corners, ForceField is the best looking security screen on the market. The heavy duty aluminium frame and the marine grade stainless steel mesh are joined together in a mechanical and chemical bond. It is virtually unbreakable and provides complete insulation of the two metals…eliminating a major cause of corrosion. ForceField has passed every imaginable test – and a few you would never imagine.

ForceField has passed every imaginable test...

...and a few you would never imagine. The standard security tests almost seem trivial compared to being hit by five steel balls less than a centimetre in diameter at 170 km/h plus. Or by a 4 kg timber block at more than 100 km/h. You are safe behind a ForceField security screen.

    The Australian Standards test consists of six separate tests that all have to be passed by the same test sample. The tests include dynamic impact test, jemmy test, pull test, probe test, shear test and knife shear test.

    Bushfire prone zones require that openable windows must be screened with corrosion-resistant steel, bronze or aluminium mesh with an opening of less than 2 mm x 2 mm. The fire attenuation test shows the reduction in radiant heat flux level provided by the screen.

    Screens provide ventilation but can also keep solar heat and UV light out during summer, and reduce heat loss during winter. WERS testing and testing to the European Standard show the reduction in solar heat and damaging UV light, and reduction in heat loss, provided by the screen.

    Whenever two different metals interact there is a risk of corrosion. The tests to show corrosion-resistance are the acetic acid salt spray test and neutral salt spray test.

    The National Construction Code (NCC) requires that window openings be either restricted or screened, in certain circumstances, to prevent children falling. Screens that resist an outward horizontal action of 250 N meet the code and mean that window restrictors, that prevent the window being open more than 125mm, can be removed.

Coastal luxury home – Sunshine Beach

This coastal luxury home is set in natural bushland only 500m from the beach. With corrosion resistance and bushfire protection on top of the priority list, ForceField® security screens were the obvious choice.
