If you’ve made the decision 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 individual requirements:
Does the Screen Door Meet Australian Standards?
Australian Standards 5039 is a series of strict tests that are 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 that 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 the exterior of your property can not only compliment, but 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 a range of 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 an optional extra. This will provide your pets with 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, along with a reputable company to install the security screens. There are two popular Australian brands that we recommend and supply –
