Stainless Steel See Through Security Screens
If you are getting a few quotes for security screens unfortunately you are going to here quite a bit of rubbish out there regarding which product is better than others. Here at Suncoast Home Accessories we are a little different to most other companies that sell only one type security screen and try to ram it down your throat as the best on the market.
We carry a large range of options, which means you have a choice. For example if you are close to the water you may chose a marine grade product like Invisi-Gard or Forcefield, or if your doors and screens are internal you may chose Clearshield for its an easier product to clean.
The quickest way to explain the different products is to start with the stainless steel used. There are two types, 304 grade & 316 grade which is also referred to sometimes as “marine grade”. You will hear a few stories regarding the two metals but to sum it up 304
is a slightly stronger metal than 316, but 316 is still very strong and has better corrosion resistance, particularly to pitting corrosion which is important if you are living in coastal conditions. Also keep in mind 316 grade in a more expensive metal to produce but some of the 304 grade security screens are still more expensive.
All the stainless steel products bellow are manufacture to pass and exceed Australian and industry standards. They all have their own patented unique fixing methods, designed so that no screws or rivets are required and so no contact between the two dissimilar can accrue which can cause corrosion. In choosing a product always make sure it’s made to Australian Standards and installed by are company who is a active member of the NSSA- National Security Screen Association. This means our work is regularly inspected by NSSA. If a company is not a member you would have to wonder WHY NOT?

ForceField - by Prowler Proof
10 Year Warranty
It's almost invisible, still it's near impossible to get past. Like all other Prowler Proof products, ForceField® is welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets.

The assembly system is patented and unique to ForceField®. The heavy duty aluminium frame and the 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh are joined together in a mechanical and chemical bond. It is virtually unbreakable and provides complete insulation of the two metals…eliminating a major cause of corrosion. ForceField® has passed every imaginable test and a few you would never imagine.
Prowler Proof products are made to last. We expect you to look after your Prowler Proof product like you would any other major investment, but we have no rigorous cleaning schedules laid out. Available in 50 standard colours and more than 250 other colour options. Timber grain is not available with this product.
