What you need to know about Window Security Screens
Window screens are common features of every home construction in most parts of Australia. They allow the circulation of air in hot weather with the added benefit of preventing insects from entering. However, as effective as they may be at keeping out insects, fly screens offer very little security and can be easily broken through – Not what you want for your home!
Window security screens, on the other hand, are strong enough to withstand most attempts at forced entry whilst retaining the advantages of flyscreens. They can also be installed on all types of windows.
Thinking about getting window security screens for your home? Here are a few things you need to know.
Do I need Window Security Screens?
You may be asking yourself: “Do I need security screens on my windows?” “Should I cover the whole window or just the opening?”
It is a must to put a security screen over the opening part of your window at the very least. This enables you to leave your window open through the summer months.
When deciding to cover a whole window, choose the window that you think is most likely to be broken into, which would give the burglar time to access your home without being seen (kids’ bedrooms are an important place to start).
For your Security

You may presume that a burglar can unscrew them, but we can assure you this doesn’t happen, especially with a powerful battery driver and a tamperproof screw.
