The short answer is, no, not really.
This is a question that we get asked a lot here at Davcon Security Screens. And it’s a valid question.
While safety and home protection is imperative to your home and family, and likely to be the key reason you’re looking at Crimsafe security screens, it doesn’t mean that you want to alter what life is like in your home.
Having a security screen system that doesn’t change how you live at home is exactly what you need. And that’s what Crimsafe can provide.
The Secret is Crimsafe’s Tensile Tuff Mesh
Crimsafe Security Screens use their very own 304 grade stainless steel mesh that is designed with a thicker cross section, which allows it to absorb a higher impact than its competitors.
It’s also engineered to remain strong following an impact or attack so that it won’t become brittle or give way in case of a deformity.
Here’s a few FAQs we often get from our customers about Tensile Tuff and its aesthetics:
How well will I be able to see through Crimsafe’s Tensile Tuff Mesh?
The mesh size is 1.5mm x 1.5mm. This means that Crimsafe isn’t going to impede the view in any substantial way in normal lighting conditions. So if you keep an eye on the kids in the back yard from your kitchen window – with Crimsafe installed you’ll still be able to see them clearly with Crimsafe installed.
Why does Crimsafe’s Tensile Tuff only come in black?
Black absorbs the light, and it’s non-reflective – imagine the sun coming through your front screen and bouncing off the back if it was white or silver!
A black mesh also means that you can see outside easier. Any other colour would create glare and reduce visibility when you look outside.
Does Crimsafe’s Tensile Tuff deflect the sun’s rays?
Crimsafe is very effective at cutting down solar heat and UV rays. Independent studies have shown that Tensile Tuff mesh can reduce solar heat by up to 53%, and reduces UV radiation by 62%.
Will Crimsafe make it darker inside my home?
You’d expect that with a screen that filters out solar heat and UV rays, it would be darker inside your home. But that’s not the case at all. While some light is reduced, it’s mostly just glare.
Think about tinted car windows – it doesn’t make it dark inside your car, but it makes it more comfortable and easier to see out.
