The Best Security Doors Tested

Best Security Doors

Security Screen Doors Tested & Rated

KNA developed the best security doors star rating system to make it easier for customers to decide on the right door for their intended purpose.

The Australian Security Standards do a decent job of showing which door passes the basic security standards. However, we believe the tests need to go much further.

For example, the standard for passing the impact test only requires the screen to withstand 5 impacts of 100 joules. An average male could kick at much higher 200+ joules in a single kick.

Some say the average kick is 1,000 pounds of force^ which is much more than 100 joules.

Best Security Doors

Our star rating goes further by conducting more robust security testing and adding ratings for some of the biggest real-world reasons clients choose to install security doors that are not addressed in the Australian Standards.

The Tests Carried Out

Each test kept kept basic and effective to try and perform more realistic scenarios of what is required in the real world.

Some of these tests include:

  • Hitting the mesh multiple times with hammers, axes, sledgehammers.
  • Cutting the mesh with knives, grinders, axes.
  • Testing air flow using industrial fan on different angles measuring the airflow.
  • Privacy tests in different lighting and viewing angles.

We hope that these tests conducted at our factory in Wangara, answer, and test some of the requests asked by our clients. And that this system provides a quick way of choosing the right solution.

Some of the common questions by clients other than security include:

  • Does it provide good airflow?
  • Does it block a lot of light?
  • Is it one of those doors you can see out but not in?
  • Will it stand up to my pets?
