Prowler Proof options

Forcefield

ForceField security doors and security windows are near invisible and virtually unbreakable. Top quality security that looks great, in versatile applications. 

Protec

Protec screens are made from perforated aluminium, and provide excellent security at a cheaper price point than Forcefield. 

Diamond design

Diamond design is your classic security screen, and provides the cheapest option for security screens and doors. The fly screen mesh comes standard to keep out the insects. 

ForceField

Near invisible, and virtually unbreakable

ForceField security doors and security windows are near invisible and virtually unbreakable.

ForceField security doors and window screens are welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets. 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.

Protec

High security, low price 

Protec screens are made from a single sheet of perforated aluminium, with welded, seamless corners, and powder coated in over 300 colours to the highest standards. The perforations are small enough to keep insects out, and 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 the strongest security screens on the market, passing all six tests required by the Australian Standards with ease. The 1000 hour neutral and acetic acid salt spray tests for withstanding corrosion were not much of a challenge either.

Diamond design

Secure and economical

Prowler Proof Diamond design is both secure and economical. It is available as SnapLock – a unique production process that makes it possible to choose any colour frame to match a black mesh, or welded, where the frame and grille are the same colour. There are no visible joints – it looks and feels like the security screen is made in one piece.

It comes with insect gauze as standard; stainless steel gauze can be fitted in bushfire prone areas to provide protection up to Bushfire Attack Level 40 (BAL 40). Full range of colours available.

Huge colour range

Over 300 standard colours to choose from

Prowler Proof products come in 50 standard colours, and there are another 250 colours to choose from at no additional cost. 

 

Because of the unique manufacturing process, and because the screens are powder coated onsite (in the local Brisbane factory) during manufacturing, no matter what colour you choose, they all come in the same lead time.

 

For ForceField, Guardian, Protec, SnapLock and Insect mesh, the frame is powder coated in your choice of colour, and the infill is black or insect gauze. For Welded Diamond and Heritage, the grille/cast panel is also powder coated in your chosen colour.

Prowler Proof security products have passed every security test with flying colours. The Australian Standards test consists of six separate tests that have to be passed in succession by the same test sample. 

The dynamic impact test simulates an intruder trying to kick through a security door or window. A bag full of lead shot and sand weighing more than 40 kg is smashed into the security screen with a force of 100 joules, repeated 5 times. 

 

ForceField, Protec and Diamond design screens all pass the test with ease, withstanding forces that no human could apply.

Pull test

Imagine an intruder trying to pull out your security screen…that’s what the pull test is all about. The security door or window must be able to withstand pulling forces of up to 2 kN (200 kg) for 20 seconds at various positions from various angles. 

It takes much more than a large screwdriver to get past a Prowler Proof ForceField, Protec or Diamond security screen. Even with substantial force applied, the locking and fixing points just won't give way.

Fall prevention

The National Construction Code requires that screens must resist an outward horizontal action of 250 N to provide protection from falls. Prowler Proof ForceField, Protec, Diamond designs and Guardian all meet this requirement easily. This means that window restrictors that prevent the window being opened more than 125mm can be removed when these screens are in place. 

Jemmy test

The jemmy test is designed to simulate an intruder using a lever to get past the security door or window. The test is performed with a large screwdriver at all locking, hinging and fastening points. The force applied is up to 450 N (45 kg) for 20 seconds – way beyond the capability of most potential intruders.

It takes much more than a large screwdriver to get past a Prowler Proof ForceField, Protec or Diamond security screen. Even with substantial force applied, the locking and fixing points just won't give way.

Probe test

The probe test simulates an intruder having created a gap and trying to get a hand inside to unlock a door or a window. A deflecting force of 1.5 kN (150 kg) is applied to each opposite side of the opening to increase the space enough to get a hand through.

ForceField, Protec and Diamond designs all passed - it is not possible to get a hand inside the mesh. 

Shear test

The shear test simulates a cutting plier attack on a security screen. The shearing tool applies increasing pressure until the sample chord breaks. The force required to break one chord must be at least 3 kN (300 kg).

All Prowler Proof security screens pass. It takes much more than 300 kg of force to break a chord with cutting pliers. It is not even possible for the pliers to get a hold on Force Field and Protec screens. 

Knife shear test

The knife shear test simulates a knife attack on your security screen. A heavy duty trimming knife is dragged along a 250 mm line with a force of 150 N (15 kg) vertically and up to 350 N (35 kg) horizontally. The test is repeated 3 times, each time with a new blade, along the same line.

This test can't be performed on a Diamond design screen; the blades are unable to move. The test leaves hardly a scratch on ForceField and Protec screens. 

Security tests

Dynamic impact test (AS 5039)

Salt spray test (AS 2331.3.1)

Two factors make Prowler Proof resistance to corrosion - it is fully welded with no untreated or raw edges and it is powder coated after assembly, eliminating the risk of damage to the paint during assembly.

The salt spray test tests the integrity of the screen in response to a spray that is saltier than sea water, in a closed chamber, at almost 100% humidity and 35 degrees. 

All Prowler Proof screens passed more than 1000 hours with no corrosion. 

Bushfire

For resistance to bushfire, look no further than ForceField or Diamond design screens. The Fire attentuation test (FS 4302/3572) subjects screens to a radiant heat flux level of 60 kw/m2 for at least 60 minutes. Most bushfires will create heat levels of around 40 kw/m2. ForceField screens were still in position after 91 minutes. The heat level measured one metre behind the window screen was around 10% of the heat level at the front of the screen. 

Both ForceField and Diamond designs meet the Australian Standard for construction in bushfire zones (AS 3959), which requires that openable windows are screened with corrosion-resistant steel, bronze or aluminium mesh with an opening less than 2mm x 2mm. With stainless steel gauze, Diamond designs, Guardian and Heritage screens are approved up to the extreme Bushfire Attack Level 40 (BAL 40); and up to BAL 29 with aluminium gauze. 

Energy and UV light

ForceField mesh helps keep you warm in winter and cool in summer, by keeping out solar heat and UV light and reducing heat loss. In the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) test, ForceField reduced solar heat gain and UV light by up to 67% (WERS rating 5 stars). Reduced heat loss was up to 28%, resulting in a 3 star WERS rating.

Acetic acid salt spray test (AS 2331.3.2)

The 1,000 hour acetic acid salt spray test is pure torture. Acetic acid salt spray is saltier than sea water and 10,000 times more acidic. The test takes place in an enclosed chamber at a temperature of +35ºC with almost 100% humidity.

Prowler Proof Diamond design, Force Field and Protec all pass the acetic acid salt spray test - the only brand to do so. If you live in a coastal area and are worried about corrosion, Prowler Proof is your safe choice. 

Cyclone (AS1170)

Cyclone testing can tell you a lot about hte strength of a screen. Prowler Proof ForceField has been extensively tested and exceeds the requirements for both the ballistics and missile tests. In the missile test, a 4kg timber block is smashed at the security screen. In the ballistics test, 5 steel balls of 8mm diameter weighing 2g each are fired at the security screen. 

 

During the missile test, ForceField withstood a 65 km/h corner impact and centre impacts at speeds of up to 104 km/h. The force of the centre impacts reached 1,659 joules – 16 times more than what is required to pass the Australian Standards dynamic impact test! The steel balls in the ballistics test reached speeds of up to 178 km/h without penetrating the mesh.

ForceField also easily passed the US Hurricane & pressure cycle test consists of a missile test and a pressure cycle test. The missile test smashes a 4.1 kg piece of timber at the security screen at an impact speed of 54 km/h. The same security screen is then air pressure cycled, simulating various wind directions and wind speeds, 9,000 times.
