Security Doors and Windows must be tested and must comply with the relevant Australian Standards to be advertised as a ‘Security’ Door or Window. The Australian Standards relevant to Security Doors and Windows are listed below giving a brief description of their application.
AS5039 – Security Screen Doors and Security Window Grilles.
This Standard specifies the required performance of all types of hinged and sliding security screen doors and hinged, sliding, removable and fixed security window grilles used primarily in residential installations. The test result will be either a pass or failure.
AS5040 – Installation of Security Screen Doors and Window Grilles.
This Standard identifies the minimum requirements for the installation of security screen doors and window grilles used in residential structures.
AS3595 – Construction of buildings in bushfire-prone areas.
This Standard states the requirements for the construction of buildings in bushfire-prone areas in order to improve their resistance to bushfire attack from burning embers, radiant heat, flame contact and combinations of the three.
AS5041 – Methods of test – Security Screen Doors and Window Grilles.
This Standard sets out the required methods for testing the resistance of security screen doors and windows incorporating infill panels to a specified level of impact force. This test consists of Dynamic Impact Test and Jemmy Test.
AS5041 – Section 8 – Knife Shear Test – Security Screen Doors and Window Grilles.
This Standard outlines the set rules for testing security doors and windows with a sharp penetrating object, testing the ultimate tensile strength and shear properties of the materials used in the construction of the Mesh or Grille.
In an industry that is littered with questionable claims and confusion as to test results, ambiguity of product performance and just what all the jargon with security doors and windows means:
We believe it’s not what you say, it’s what you can prove.
Recent tests prove that Panther Protect security doors and windows go far beyond the claims of leading competitors to bring you standards that they say is the fact but actually failed to reach. The ingenious simplicity in the mechanics of how the mesh is held in place is the secret to making this product so strong and so affordable…In fact it is “One of a kind with no equal”!
The Panther Protect security system has undergone extensive testing to bring you a new standard in home security. While many security companies promote benefits that they can’t prove, or will not produce any documentation to substantiate their claims, we value the information we give to our customers and offer complete transparency on test results and performance information. For this reason all our test reports are available upon request via our registration form below.
All Panther Protect security testing is carried out by an independent NATA accredited laboratory. After extensive testing for Impact (AS 5039), Corrosion (AS 2331.3.1) and Knife Sheer (AS 5041), our security doors not just passed, but far exceeded all relevant Australian Standards. They also meet the requirements for Bush Fire (BAL 1,2,3) and Cyclone Prone Areas (Debris test).
