COMPLIANCE & VERIFICATION
Security screen doors and security window screens are investment in your home and there are several key factors you should consider when choosing security screen products.
- Screen mesh strength and compliance to the Australian standard AS 5039
- Frame and construction
When purchasing a security screen door, there are a few features it must have to pass as compliant to the Australian Standards and be considered a true security door.
A 3 Point Lock
A 5 Pin Cylinder
A hinge security screen door must have three tamper resistant security hinges
A sliding security screen door must have heavy duty interlocks
An Australian Standards AS 5039 Compliance label/sticker
If your security door does not have the above requirements, it is to be sold, advertised and classified as a barrier or safety door, not a security door.
When purchasing and installing security screen products for your home, always seek the advice and services of a member of the NSSA.
Members of the NSSA undergo Compliance Audits which are conducted independently, certifying that the security screen products they manufacture comply with the Australian Standard AS 5039 - Security Screen Doors and Window Grilles and the design performance has been verified by a NATA Accredited Test Laboratory in accordance with the Australian Standard AS 5041 Methods of Test - Security Screen Doors and Window Grilles.
For verification of compliance and a true security screen product, check for the NSSA AS 5039 Compliance label. This Compliance label provides consumers with a guarantee that the security screen product purchased is verified and tested to the Australian Standards.
