What is a Security Screen?
Security screens are installed on the windows of a home. They resemble traditional insect screens but are constructed out of stainless steel and are designed to be much stronger than traditional window screens. Security screens can provide protection against break-ins and vandalism. They are designed to withstand force and do not move or break easily.
The difference between Security Screens and Insect Screens
Whether they have 2 legs or more, security and insect screens are an extra layer of protection from unwanted guests. The steel mesh helps fortify your home and works to eliminate the chances of a break-in or insect problem. Security screens are stronger and more durable than insect screens, often made from 304 structural grade or 316 marine grade stainless steel. As such, security screens cost more than insect screens. The insect variety usually uses a thinner and more interlocked mesh, ensuring even the smallest of insects do not enter your home, keeping it safe from an infestation.
