How to choose the best security screen doors

How to choose the best security screen doors

Are you looking for an effective and affordable way to upgrade your home security? Installing security screen doors is a simple solution for safeguarding your house against intruders while enjoying bonus benefits like added privacy, improved ventilation and keeping insects out during Sydney’s hot summers. Security screens can be custom-made to fit the exact measurements of any door and seamlessly blend in with the design and style of your home.

Not sure which security screen doors to pick for your home? This is what you should consider.


If maximum security is the main priority, the best option to choose is an Amplimesh Supascreen door. Supascreen is an excellent material to use in the design of security doors since it is so strong and durable, it is made using marine-grade stainless steel. For a budget-friendly version Intrudaguard marine-grade aluminium can be chosen. Both these materials meet the Australian Standard AS5039, which tests six main concerns in the strength of security screen doors and windows (the knife sheer test, the impact test, the anti-jemmy test, the pull test, the probe test and the sheer test)

Privacy and ventilation

A great benefit of installing security screen doors is the balance between maintaining privacy without blocking views and inviting natural light and fresh air into the house without risking safety. Using one-way mesh and smart viewing angles, security screens succeed in blocking bypassers’ view into the house without blocking your view from inside the house.

With a viewing angle of 156 degrees, our woven mesh security screen doors provide impressive views of the outdoors while maintaining privacy. The mesh also offers ventilation of 41% so you can enjoy natural light and fresh airflow without compromising on safety or views! Our perforated aluminium security screen doors present a budget-friendly alternative to the stainless steel option with a viewing angle of 119 degrees and ventilation support of 40%.

Design and layout

Security screen doors can be custom-made to complement your personal style and tie in with the design of the house. Whether you’re looking for a simple hinged mesh door to secure a front or back door, or need a custom-sized security screen for unique doors, it can be done! Other options such as sliding doors or folding and stacked doors are well-suited for outdoor areas, patios or wider openings that require extra spatial efficiency.

Environmental conditions

Australians need to consider their environmental conditions to choose the best security screens for their homes. Materials that meet the Australian Standard have non-corrosive properties to ensure the doors don’t rust. Bushfire safety is another important consideration when installing security screens around the house. Our marine-grade security screen doors are suitable for cyclonic regions as well as bushfire-prone regions. Our Amplimesh SupaScreen stainless steel screens are best suited for the latter with a BAL 40 rating as well as a BAL FZ rating (Bushfire Attack Level Flame Zone), which is the highest rating applied to buildings in Australia. As an additional fire safety measure, it’s a good idea to install security window exit screens in the case of a house fire.
