I want the style and view of a security screen but security rating is not that important to me
Bella 316 Barrier Screens™ are a more cost-effective alternative to security screening that gives your home the appearance and style of a security screen. Bella 316 screens are made of the same high-quality 316 Marine Grade stainless steel as SecureView which means it will stand up to coastal conditions with correct care and maintenance. The carefully produced 0.7mm woven stainless steel mesh allows ultimate visibility to the outside and will keep all of the bugs, insects, and your pets outside and look great while doing it.
I want an affordable option to screen my home for now
Contrary to popular belief, the traditional diamond grille screens many Australian homes have are not security products – they are barrier screens only. This means they are not security rated to withstand intrusion or attack, they are simply a barrier to the home. However, they are still a popular selection for many homeowners due to their affordability and can be a great option for your home.
I just want the bugs to stop biting me at night!
If you want a simple, cost-effective screening solution to just keep the bugs out at night, then fly screens and doors will be right for you. With many of us living close to the water, bugs are a huge intrusion to the home, especially during the Summer months. Flyscreens have a range of mesh options to accommodate this ranging from fibreglass to pet mesh to aluminium. This option, however, will not provide any security to the home.
