ForceField Security Screens

ForceField security doors and 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, ForceField is the best looking security 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. ForceField has passed every imaginable test – and a few you would never imagine.

  • Hardware
  • The Lockwood 8653 Sliding Security Door Lock and 8654 Hinge Security Door Lock have been designed in Australia and manufactured to stringent quality specifications. Both ranges have been tested in accordance with AS4145.2-2008, offering exceptional performance and reliability. Incorporating Lockwood’s advanced safety and security feature, DualSelect® the 8653 and 8654 are ideal for use in residential applications. You can also have all your security doors keyed alike, so you only need the one key to open them all.


  • Marine Grade Stainless Steel Mesh
  • The black powder coated, 316 marine grade stainless steel provides greater resistance to pitting corrosion than other grades of steel. The 1.62mm aperture and 42.5% open area means ForceField provides excellent visibility and airflow. While 316 steel is .8mm 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).

  • Tests Passed
  • Security

    • The Australian Standards (AS 5039-2008) test consists of six separate tests that all have to be passed by the same test sample. The tests include dynamic impact test, jemmy test, pull test, probe test, shear test and knife shear test.

    Cyclone

    • Cyclone, and hurricane and pressure cycle testing (AS/NZS 1170 and AAMA 506-06/ASTM E1996/ASTM E1886) are the toughest tests a security screen can go through. These tests include the missile test, ballistics test, and a pressure cycle test.

    Bushfire

    • Bushfire prone zones require that openable windows must be screened with corrosion-resistant steel, bronze or aluminium mesh with an opening of less than 2 mm x 2 mm (AS 3959-2009). The fire attenuation test (FS 4302/3572) shows the reduction in radiant heat flux level provided by the screen.

    Energy and UV Light

    • Screens provide ventilation but can also keep solar heat and UV light out during summer, and reduce heat loss during winter. WERS testing and testing to the European Standard (EN 14501) show the reduction in solar heat and damaging UV light, and reduction in heat loss, provided by the screen.

    Corrosion

    • Whenever two different metals interact there is a risk of corrosion. The tests (AS 2331.3.2 and AS 2331.3.1) to show corrosion-resistance are the acetic acid salt spray test and neutral salt spray test.

    Insect Protection

    • The mosquito protection test tests a screens ability to keep mosquitoes out over an extended period of time.

    Access Control

    • Allow unassisted access for pets or people, through the addition of optional access control accessories, such as keying locks alike, pet doors for family pets and solid panels for easier wheelchair accessibility.

    Fall Prevention

    • The National Construction Code (NCC) (BCA 2013) requires that window openings be either restricted or screened, in certain circumstances, to prevent children falling. Screens that resist an outward horizontal action of 250 N meet the code and mean that window restrictors, that prevent the window being open more than 125mm, can be removed.
