Burglar-Proof Security Screens
Burglar-Proof Security Screens as seen on WCPO-TV with John Matarese.
Security Screens are not the same as security bars. While the two of them do perform the same function, their appearances are drastically different. Security bars give off the appearance of an institution, which is of course not ideal for businesses or homes. Proper home remodeling security features provides for security without compromising the natural beauty of the property.
Unlike security bars, security screens do not take away from the appearance from the property, but of course provides security to keep you and your assets on the inside safe.
Security Screen Extrusions
All series of ALLGOOD's sub-frames, main frames, flat bar, center bar, hinges even down to the latch housings we use on our SPR-Latches are all 6063-T5 extruded aluminum. Depending on which series you choose determines the wall thickness of the frames. Most all of our screens have a wall thickness of .062 (1/16") we do offer a series with a wall thickness of .080 ( between 1/16" & 1/8"). Most homes would fall into the .062 range. All series of ALLGOOD security screens come in standard colors of Mill Finish (unpainted), Bronze or White, special colors are available.
Stainless Steel Wire Mesh
AllGood offers a wide variety of stainless steel wire.
Stainless Steel Wire Mesh
ALLGOOD offers a variety of stainless steel wire.
- .012 Ga 30 x 30 mesh: This is a very fine wire mostly used in the filter business. .012 is the thickness of the wire,
a little less than 1/64 of an inch. 30 x 30 mesh means that for every square inch you have 30 strands running horizontal and 30 strands running vertical
again this is used mostly in the filter business and we do not advise having this wire painted.
- .018 Ga 16 x 16: The wire thickness of this product is a little shy of insect screen found in most homes. Again 16 x 16
means 16 strands horizontal and 16 strands vertical per square inch. This wire can be painted if one doesn't mind the wire
being a little wavy, by nature this wire is wavy anyway.
- .023 Ga 12 x 12: The wire thickness of this products is between 1/64th and 1/32 nd of an inch This wire offers a
little more strength and can easily be painted.
- .028Ga 12 x 12: This is the most commonly used wire in the security screen industry. This wire is very strong and
can easily withstand even an ax being used on it. We are not saying an ax will not rip it but once the wire is hit
directly it does not create a hole big enough for a person to climb through. This wire also is easily painted.
- .035 Ga 12 x 12: We use this wire in our hurricane screens, it passed the rigid impact test that Florida code demands
and passed hands down. This wire also is easily painted.
The .018, .023, .028 and .035 comes in a natural color or can be powder coated black, bronze or white.
We offer a .050 aluminum piano hinge and a stainless steel hinge 1/2 x 1/2, 3/4 x 3/4, 1 x 1. once again these can be
powder coated to match the color of the main frames.
We use stainless steel barrel bolt latches, one on each side that requires both hands to operate or our patented SPR-LATCH
that requires only one hand to operate.
Now back to security screens vs. security bars. Most windows today come double hung with a full screen allowing fresh
air into the room or a full sunscreen to minimize the damaging rays of the sun. ALLGOOD Security Screens are mounted directly
to the window and thus appears that it belongs there. Security Bars on the other hand looks just like security bars i.e.. Out of
place. Security screens also protect the whole window from vandals, burglars and flying debris, while security bars do not protect
the glass or window thus creating maintenance cost to the home owner.
