The big idea behind the creation of Crimsafe® was that traditional aluminum security grills were:
- A visual impediment
- Not all that secure because the primary fixture was just a 3.2mm pop rivet that would shear apart if the grill received sufficient impact, causing the grill to pop out of the frame.
Steel bars were more secure, but they could easily be pried apart with a jack and they made your house or business look like a prison.
Surely it was possible to develop a product that functioned better to protect your property while still keeping it looking good?
The idea emerged to use a high tensile woven steel mesh... because this could act as both a security system and an insect screen...and secure it into an aluminum frame.
And then to hold it securely in place with a screw driven through both the mesh and the frame.
Visibility wouldn't be hampered and the average criminal would have no hope of getting in. Crimsafe was born. Production began in March, 1996.
Since then the company has grown...and grown. Our Authorized Distributors now offer Crimsafe all over Australia, and in several other countries including Japan and the United States.
Each home that takes a Crimsafe product is proof that people value the real security and good looks that it offers. The screw-clampTM design is the only one of its kind in the world, and our in-house testing shows that screw-clamped products last the longest under a fierce attack.
Our goal is to continue to develop products that exceed the American standards for security screens and Miami-Dade standards for hurricane protection and we'll do our best to make sure that consumers get real performance for their money when they buy a security product.
