Protec Security Doors & Screens
Prowler Proof Protec is smart security and is one of the strongest security screens on the market.
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 perforations are exactly the right size – small enough to keep insects out, big
enough to allow excellent airflow and transparency. The mesh is joined to the heavy duty aluminium frame in a process unique to Prowler Proof.
Protec is one of Australia’s strongest and best looking security screens. The frame comes in over 300 colours to suit the black mesh. If you’re
looking for smart security, you can’t go past Protec...

The six separate tests comprising the Australian Standards Security Test (AS 5039) were all passed with ease. The 1,000 hour neutral and acetic
acid salt spray tests (AS 2331) were not much of a challenge either. Mosquitoes and other insects are kept outside thanks to the fine holes
in the solid aluminium sheet. Only fresh air and daylight gets past Protec…
The Australian Standards (AS 5039-2008) 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.
Energy UV Light
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 (EN 14501) 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 (AS 2331.3.2 and AS 2331.3.1) to show corrosion-resistance
are the acetic acid salt spray test and neutral salt spray test.
The mosquito protection test tests a screens ability to keep mosquitoes out over an extended period of time.
Allow unassisted access for pets or people, through the addition of optional access control accessories, such as keying locks alike,
pet doors for family pets and solid panels for easier wheelchair accessibility.
The National Construction Code (NCC) (BCA 2013) 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.
