It’s built in our hi-tech factory as an all-aluminium design with Prowler Proof’s famous welded, seamless corners. The mesh is a single aluminium sheet, perforated and powder coated to the high standards you’d expect from Prowler Proof.

    The National Construction Code (NCC) requires that window openings be either restricted or screened, in certain circumstances, to prevent children falling.
