The Australian standard for security doors and security screens requires all security doors and screens to comply with AS5041. Part of the physical test for this standard requires the security door or security screen to withstand 5 impacts of an impact ball at 100 Joules of energy. Along with the team at Azuma design Testing Facility NSW we put ClearShield’s Ultra-Strength design to the test well beyond the requirements of the standard. The test sample withstood 50 x 100 Joule impacts. This result equates to 10 cycles of the DYNAMIC IMPACT TEST as specified in Australian Standard Test, another outstanding result! You can view our test video under the Media Gallery Page in the Video Gallery. ClearShield has passed this test.
The effects of a pull attack against a security screen door or security screen are simulated by allowing a direct force to be applied to the test specimen via a cable. The forces are applied at different angles and different levels depending upon the force location.ClearShield has passed this test.
At ClearShield we take the threat of a knife attack very seriously. Australian Standard 5041 requires all class 3 type security door and screen products to pass the AS4483 knife attack test. This test requires the security screen material to be subjected to repetitive knife attack without penetration of the mesh greater than 150mm after three slashes of a knife. We put ClearShield to the ultimate test and contracted the services of Azuma design Testing Facility NSW (N.A.T.A accredited) to test ClearShield well beyond the standard requirements. The results were impressive to say the least! ClearShield’s domestic grade screen withstood over 60 passes of the knife. This result equates to the screen withstanding over 20 cycles of the KNIFE SHEAR TEST as specified in AS4483il. You can view our test video under the Media Gallery Page in the Video Gallery. ClearShield has passed this test.
The effects of a jemmy attack against a security screen door or security screen are simulated by allowing a standardised narrow-bladed lever to be inserted against the locking, fastening and hinging points and a turning force is applied to those points via the lever.
ClearShield has passed this test.
This test puts ClearShield on par with many high performance solar-control glazing systems and shading products! What this means is that ClearShield will allow you to leave your doors and windows open, creating a burglar resistant barrier with optimum visibility and substantially improved Energy Efficiency
This is a break-through in material strength engineering and has been tested and passed to all relevant Australian standards. Using high grade stainless steel, ClearShield screens are finished in a strong and durable powder coated black finish. A matrix of tiny holes measuring 2.0mm in diameter are stamped through a solid sheet of stainless steel, no mosquitoes will get in through the tiny holes of the screen.
All ClearShield products have been approved for use in bushfire applications under AS3959. ClearShield Emergency Exit Screens are also very useful as a bushfire screen where the application requires the screen to protect the complete window thus allowing the occupants easy escape in an emergency. ClearShield’s NEW Bushfire Shutters are also exceptionally useful as they comply with the requirements of part 3.7 of AS 3959(BAL 40). This latest addition to the ClearShield range is an economically and aesthetically pleasing alternative to conventional roll-down fire shutters
