Can You Put Security Screens On Casement Windows?

Casement windows are a fantastic choice for many Gold Coast homes, and whether you have them installed already or are thinking of making the switch, you may be wondering how casement windows can be made secure. Security screens are one of the most efficient ways to protect your home, but can you put security screens on casement windows? We will answer this common question below.

Can you put security screens on casement windows?

The good news is that yes, you absolutely can put security screens on casement windows. Although they are hinged and operated by a hand crank, we have developed an efficient way to install SecureView security screens on casement windows so that you can open the window as far as you like while staying completely safe. This does not infringe on the function of the window at all, so you can use it as you would normally with the peace of mind that your security screen is doing its job.

Do I need security screens?

If you’re planning on opening your casement windows to enjoy the fresh air and to control the temperature in your home, we highly recommend security screens so that you’re not risking the integrity of your home when you do this. They do not interrupt views or airflow but ensure that you can keep all of your windows open for as long as you like with complete peace of mind. Not only do they block and deter intruders, but they also prevent pests from entering your home through the windows, too.

We recommend steel mesh security screens for complete protection, but we offer a range of security screens that are all compatible with casement windows and can match any budget or requirement. They are all fully tested to Australian standards and have passed each risk assessment with flying colours.

What are the benefits of casement windows?

Casement windows offer many benefits, making them a top choice for many coastal Australian homes. They are affordable and durable, with ours tested to resist 360km/hour winds and 1000Pa water. This makes them ideal for extreme conditions on the coast as well as for letting in a breeze when the weather is hot by utilising their hinges to open them, allowing for good climate control.

The casement windows that open with hand cranks are perfect for any location in the home, even up high or above countertops or furniture. You can operate them vertically with the hand crank found at the base, making opening and closing effortless. There are so many colours, materials and styles to choose from that you will be able to find a casement window to suit you and match any aesthetic design.

Of course, perhaps the biggest benefit to using casement windows is that they are fully compatible with security screens so you can utilise all of these fantastic features without compromising on the security of your home.

What Are Security Screens?

Security screens or safety screens are special screens that are placed over the entry and exit points of your home such as your doors and windows. They are designed to help prevent break-ins or forced entry into your home while also helping to maintain good airflow through your home and ventilation.

They’re the perfect option for the homeowners who are security conscious but also want to have the luxury to leave their windows or doors open for some fresh air.

1. Aluminium Framed Security Screens

Aluminium isn’t as fragile as many people initially think it is. Aluminium has come a long way in recent years with many of the best security doors featuring a special heavy-duty aluminium alloy that is the perfect material to provide your home with plenty of extra security.

Often, this extra strong heavy-duty alloy is up to six times stronger than standard steel and is long-lasting, which makes it a great investment that will last well into the future.

Aluminium framed security screens are generally customisable to your home and needs, so you can ensure you get security screens that are exactly what you’re looking for.

2. Stainless Steel Mesh Security Screens

Stainless steel mesh security screens are the perfect option for homeowners who want to enjoy the outside breeze coming into their home while not having their view entirely obscured. Stainless steel mesh security screens feature mesh that is highly resistant to forced entry, while also preventing bugs and insects from entering your home.

Stainless steel is rust-resistant and incredibly strong, so you can be sure that your investment will keep your home safe for many years to come.

Again, stainless steel security screens can be tailored to your home and needs, all you need to do is provide us with some precise measurements and we’ll create a screen that’s the perfect fit.
