Protec Security Screens

It’s built in Prowler Proofs hi-tech factory as an all-aluminium design with Prowler Proof’s famous welded, seamless corners. The mesh is a single aluminium sheet, perforated and powder coated to the high standards you’d expect from Prowler Proof. The perforations are exactly the right size – small enough to keep insects out, big enough to allow excellent airflow and transparency. The mesh is joined to the heavy duty aluminium frame in a process unique to Prowler Proof. Protec is one of Australia’s strongest and best looking security screens. The frame comes in over 300 colours to suit the black mesh. If you’re looking for smart security, you can’t go past Protec.

  • 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.


  • Perforated Aluminium
  • Protec uses 1.81mm thick, black powder coated, perforated aluminium sheet. With perforation diameters of just 2.5mm, the holes in the perforated aluminium sheet are too small to get through – even for mosquitoes, and with an open area of 39.2% Protec is still easy to see through and allows the breeze in for ventilation. Protec security doors and windows will also help keep solar heat and UV light out during summer – and reduce heat loss in winter.

  • 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.

    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.
