Crimsafe security screens don’t only protect your home from criminals, they also protect your home from excessive heat build-up. How your windows and doors perform in conserving energy affects the overall energy performance of your home and determines your heating and cooling costs. Crimsafe improves the energy efficiency of your windows and doors, and therefore your whole house, driving down energy costs and making your home a more comfortable place in which to live.

The Windows Energy Rating Scheme

Up to 40% of heat gain and loss occurs through the windows of your home, which is why all windows in Australia are rated by WERS (Windows Energy Rating Scheme). An important factor in determining a window’s WERS rating is the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, which measures how well a window blocks out heat from the sun. Windows fitted with Crimsafe have been measured and tested – when Crimsafe is applied over a single glazed window, it can decrease solar heat gain in your home by up to 53%. According to this result, WERS recognises that Crimsafe security screens improve the energy efficiency of windows and doors, which in turn improve the energy efficiency of your entire home. This means that your home will stay cooler in summer and warmer in winter, reducing the need for air-conditioning and heating and contributing to lower energy costs.

Keep your home comfortable

So, while in summer, when Crimsafe is installed over a single glazed window reduces the amount of solar heat gain of up to 53%, keeping the inside of your home cool and comfortable, in winter, Crimsafe limits the escape of warmth from your home, increasing heat retention efficiency. By applying Crimsafe to your doors and windows, you will be conserving energy and your home will earn a higher energy rating.

Conserve energy for a cleaner, more sustainable environment

We are all responsible for the sustainability of our environment, which is why households are urged to contribute to the conservation of energy. Crimsafe is a smarter choice, providing your home with the strongest security, while contributing to the overall energy efficiency and comfort of your home.

Enjoy a glare-free view

Your Crimsafe screen acts as an effective sunshade to the sun’s light. The sun’s rays penetrate houses at a steeper angle than the face of the mesh, which means that you can enjoy an uninterrupted view through your Crimsafe screen, without light reflecting through the screen into your eyes.

Enjoy a consistent indoor climate

Crimsafe reduces the amount of heat that reaches the glass of your window, which means less heat is transferred into your home, lowering the risk of stress fractures to the glass and damage to any furnishings inside.
