Security Inturder Fly Screen 316SS. Thoughts?

Bloody cruisers on the grog always make you want to spend another few dollars

Last night someone was talking about Crimscreen. Couldnt find that well on the internet but found SecureView.

Its meant to be like an insect screen that can't be cut (easily) there for used on the companionway and/or hatches could keep th bad guys out and us sleeping all night long.

Have you seen it or got it, or similar? Whats it like.


SecureView is a proven high grade woven T316 black stainless steel mesh screen that delivers superior protection. It keeps intruders and insects out without spoiling your view.

SecureView: No bars, no grilles. Just highly evolved security with a view.

SecureView is continually tested and passes to the highest required standards including:
  • Knife Shear Tests (AS5039 - 2003)
  • Impact Tests (AS5039 - 2003)
  • Anti-jemmy Tests ( AS5039 - 2003)
  • Pull Tests (AS5039 - 2003)
  • Aluminium frame specification: 6060 T5 powdercoated to a minimum thickness of 60um
  • Stainless mesh specification: T316 Marine Grade, 0.8mm diameter, hardened for extra strength, 11x11 strands per 25mm (1 inch)
Sorry for the extensive quoting off a website but I felt it important

How do those SS spects sound?

The Knife Shear Test
This test is designed to simulate a knife attack as a burglar seeks quiet entry into your house. In this case a standard cutting blade such as a Stanley knife is used on the basis that it is an instrument that is readily concealable and also readily available, to allow repeatable, consistent tests.
Using a specially designed machine, the knife is drawn along a 25cm line down the test panel 3 times.
The test panel fails if a continuous penetration measuring more than 15cm is achieved after the 3 passes.

The Dynamic Impact Test
This test was introduced to simulate a kick to a security screen door after it was found that grilles fitted to security screen doors were subject to impact breakage through either forward or reverse kicking of the grille panel.
This test is performed with a swinging leather bag filled with sand and lead and weighing between 36 and 46kg (101.4 Lbs). At impact the bag imparts 100 joules (737.6 Ft-Lbs) of energy to the panel being tested. The test is repeated 5 times, simulating repeated kicking as the burglar attempts to break into your home.
The test panel fails the test if the infill material (mesh) comes out of the door or window framing, or if the impact breaches the material in any way.
