Screens are an ideal way to add comfort and security to your premises and can be manufactured to complement existing styles and tastes. They also provide functionality in accordance with any existing configurations of windows, doorways and other entry points around the structure of your premises.
Manufactured with high-quality componentry in our factory, Southern Cross Blinds & Awnings offers a variety of options to cover entry-level requirements through to solutions matched up with any aesthetic requirements. Our consultants also have experience in meeting any regulatory obligations placed on particular structures due to their location, such as a fire zone, or usage, including nursing homes, pre-schools, etc.
ClearShield security screens are an excellent option for securing homes and businesses. They offer a less-imposing, yet a robust alternative to grilles. This style of screening is the ideal, long-term choice.
ClearShield security screens are made from a single sheet of high-grade stainless steel mesh. The sheet is locked into an aluminium frame without the use of rivets or screws. This method limits contact between the stainless steel and aluminium, therefore avoiding corrosion through contact of dissimilar metals (galvanic corrosion). Through the product’s engineering, there are no requirements for inclusion of a grille.
These security screens are presented with their mesh finished in a strong and durable powder-coated black finish. This non-porous finish is modern-looking and easy to clean. An amazing degree of clarity is preserved when ClearShield security screens are installed and is achieved through a matrix of tiny holes measuring 2mm.
Southern Cross Blinds & Awnings can install all ClearShield security screens with a three-point locking system, with hinged screens being supplied with three hinges for ultimate security and functionality. Additionally, if the existing frame system allows for it, sliding screens can also be installed with an interlock to deter access through jimmying.
Insect screens would have to be one the most undervalued products that find their way into the modern home. With the Australian continent playing host to a variety of unwelcome insects, an insect screen that can provide many years of service will easily pay for itself.
Along with other products in our range, insect screens are manufactured with quality componentry to ensure long-term value.
Combining the strength of stainless steel with the flexibility of architectural-grade aluminium framing, Invisi-Gard security screens offer unparalleled clarity of vision with uncompromising security, are an excellent choice for securing homes and businesses and offer an alternative to grilles.
Invisi-Gard security screens are made from a single sheet of woven marine-grade 316 stainless steel and through the products engineering, there is no requirement for the inclusion of a grille.
Grade 316 has excellent corrosion resistance to a wide range of media with its main advantage of grade 304 being its increased ability to resist pitting and crevice corrosion. Invisi-Gard products resist ordinary rusting in virtually all architectural applications and is an excellent choice for more aggressive environments along coastal and other areas with high alkalinity.
Southern Cross Blinds & Awnings installs all Invisi-Gard security screens with a three-point locking system, which means all hinged screens are supplied with three hinges for ultimate security and functionality. If the current system allows for it, sliding screens can be installed with an interlock to prevent access through jimmying.
For windows or doorways that either requires a solution for limited access because of the window’s or door’s operation – such as French doors – or there is a need for a screen that does not impinge on the surrounding area, Retrakt-a-Screen, with its retractable operation, is the ideal solution.
Retrakt-a-Screen retracts completely away when not in use and incorporates a uniquely designed tracking system and frame that prevents the entry of insects. The slimline track projects only 25mm and allows for the inclusion of wheels on the top and bottom, delivering a smooth and more robust operation.
These retractable screens can be installed into doorways up to 2500mm (height) x 3000mm (width) and into windows measuring 2100mm (height) x 1500mm (width).
