What is Crimsafe? And WHY do you need it?


I’m sure you’ve heard about Crimsafe before, but what exactly is it? And what makes their products work so well?

Crimsafe is an Australian company that has produced a range of industry leading security products for more than 20 years, propelling them to one of Australia’s largest security screen suppliers. Franklyn have become Brisbane’s leading manufacturer of Crimsafe products, and are proud to be associated with such a reputable and important Australian business.

Over the course of their journey to the top of the industry, Crimsafe have provided thousands of Australian homes with high quality security screens, based on two core pieces of technology - Tensile-Tuff® mesh and a patented screw clamp system. However it’s the combination of these two, and what they represent, that makes the difference.

The screw clamp technology is what makes the Crimsafe system strong enough to withstand enormous impacts compared to other systems. The difference lies in the design, where the mesh is screwed directly into the frame of the door or window and clamped down in what amounts to a vice-like grip, using the unique Crimsafe screw-clamp. This combination gives the entire structure more strength by holding the frame together and the mechanical fastening of the clamp to the mesh resists the tendency of the mesh to be pulled out of the frame. This is also why Crimsafe exceeds the Australian standards for impact and shear testing for security screens.

Recently, the company had the University of New South Wales’ School of Aerospace and Civil and Mechanical Engineering at the Australian Defence Force Academy design a rigorous scientific test to determine exactly how much force Crimsafe screens can resist before breaking. They also tested alternative stainless steel security screens bought directly from 9 different competitors.
