Screen Doors – What Options Do I Have?

Screen Doors

If you’ve decided to add security screen doors to your home or business, you’re probably feeling somewhat overwhelmed with how many options there are to choose from…

What price should I pay? How strong is the screen? What configuration is best for my requirements? These are just some of the questions you may be asking.

Here are some factors you should consider in order to ensure that you select the best security screen for your requirements:

Does the Screen Door Meet Australian Standards?

Australian Standards 5039 is a series of strict tests applied to all security doors manufactured within Australia. They consist of several tests, including the –

  • Knife test
  • Impact test
  • Jemmy test
  • Pull test
  • Probe test
  • Shear test

It’s important to select a screen that, as a minimum, passes all of these tests. However, there are several leading brands available within Australia that significantly exceed most of these tests. We encourage you to select one of these industry-leading brands to ensure your screen door is as strong and durable as possible.

Read our recent article for a more detailed explanation of Australian Standards.

Will the Colour Match my Home or Business?

Most reputable screen doors are now available in a large variety of different colours. Selecting a colour scheme that matches your property’s exterior can complement and enhance the look and feel of the property.

Are you looking for a natural timber look? Several leading brands now also offer aluminium screens with timber finishes. They provide a unique natural look without compromising on strength and security.

What If I Have Pets?

Several major security door manufacturers will now also include pet doors as optional. This will give your pets an easy way to enter and exit your home without your assistance.

It is, however, important to consider that larger pet doors may provide an entry point for potential intruders, so make sure you discuss this with your installer.

What Are My Best Options?

Once you have carefully considered each of these factors, it’s time to find a suitable brand and a reputable company to install the security screens. There are two popular Australian brands that we recommend and supply –


Invisi-Gard security doors are manufactured from high-tensile 316 marine-grade stainless steel. Backed by an impressive 15 years warranty, they not only meet but exceed all Australian standards and are resistant to corrosion.

Available in a huge range of colours and configurations, Invisi-Gard screen doors can be customised to your requirements.

The Invisi-Maxx option from Invisi-Gard is a step up from their standard doors and the “big daddy” of home security. It is designed for maximum strength, durability and security and is able to withstand cyclonic winds of up to 356km/h.


Alu-Gard screen doors are manufactured from 1.6mm thick perforated aluminium sheets that offer strength and durability at a great price. Accompanied by a 7-year manufacturer’s warranty, they are available in hinged, sliding, double and escape screen models.

Alu-Gard Edge is the premium option available from Alu-Gard. It provides a superior level of strength, along with clarity of vision and corrosion resistance.

I would recommend KNA security to my family & friends. From my first contact to arrange a quote for security doors, to the doors being fitted just 6 weeks later. KNA have been very professional, friendly & easy to deal with.

Fantastic service … again. We are return customers. The KNA team did a great job and were extremely professional and responsive from the enquiry stage to installation. Definitely recommend.
Scott Mackenzie

Mum just installed security doors and windows, had a front roller shutter and window tint from KNA, the house has been transformed and she is so pleased with the work, apart from a few minor glitches we recommend KNA to anyone getting these jobs done. It also saved time in getting so many quotes from other places for these jobs, and the price came in less then we expected. All staff to the quote, installers and phone staff were ever so pleasant and friendly. Thankyou KNA, your a great company to deal with.
