Security Screen Colors
Our standard colors for the extruded aluminum frames are white, bronze and silver. We of course can paint them to any color for a small additional charge. The stainless steel mesh is silver but is also available in black.
Hinged Style Security Screens
Security Screens are available with a piano hinge and latching system. This allows the security screen to be opened for egress or ease of window cleaning. Another option is to use a key lock instead of the spring loaded latch.
We offer a hinged security screen with a 3” master or sub frame. This master frame is also available in a 2” design. This style security screen has a 5/8” lip around the perimeter for ease of screw on installation to the existing primary window.

|This is the inside view of our security screen. Here we see the spring loaded latch and protective guard to prevent intrusion from the outside of the window. Simply pull on the latch and push out on the screen for ease of opening.|
|A hinged security screen is also available without the master frame. A piano hinge is attached directly to one side of the security screen frame. The same latching system is also attached to the opposite side. The latch can be made to catch onto your existing primary window. A section of angle aluminum may be attached to your primary window to act as a catch for the spring loaded latching bolts. If you can use the security screen without the master frame then you can save money.
