Certain windows greater than 2.0m from the outside ground level need to meet the National Construction Code (NCC) fall prevention requirements. This can be meet in two ways, either a hardware restrictor or a compliant fall prevention screen. A restrictor renders the window to only be operable to 125mm, where a Guardian fall prevention screen enables the full use of a window’s function.
Guardian fall prevention window screens are welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets. A weld is stronger than any screw or rivet, and it looks better too. With its seamless corners, Guardian is the best looking fall prevention 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.
The black powder coated, 304 stainless steel provides greater resistance to pitting corrosion than other grades of steel. The 1.62mm aperture and 42.5% open area means Guardian provides excellent visibility and airflow. While 304 steel is .6mm diameter wire, it is ultra-high tensile giving the mesh its strength to ensure it passes the shear and knife shear parts of the Australian Standards security test (AS5039).
