Description - Security Screen

A security screen installs to an existing window. They are available fixed or operable depending on if you need to be able to open for cleaning or to be able to get out in an emergency. Security screens look similar to an insect screen but in addition to providing insect protection they provide durability and security. They have a strong stainless steel wire installed which is available in different meshes depending on how tuff you need the screen to be. Security screens are made with a heavy duty extruded aluminum or steel frame depending on the model of screen you choose. There are different frame sizes and styles to meet your specific needs. Below is an overview of the most common types of security screens we offer. Please contact us if you do not see what you need. We ship to all locations in the USA and work with all types of commercial and residential jobs.

Security Screen Colors

The standard frame colors for the security screens are white, bronze and silver. In addition we do have other color options available depending on the model you choose to go with. We of course can paint them to any color for an additional charge. The stainless steel mesh is silver but is also available in a powder coated black finish. Our Safety screens come in a wide array of frame and mesh colors. We can powder coat the frame and wire to be the same color for the safety screens.

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.

Click to Enlarge 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.
