Designing a home involves creating something that looks good but also includes features that will ensure the occupants feel comfortable and secure. This new home in Ascot, Queensland, demonstrates how Invisi-Gard security screens work perfectly to provide a safe environment, without compromising on good looks.
From the street it’s almost impossible to tell that the entire ground level of this home is protected by Invisi-Gard window and door security screens. The aluminium frames of the screens have been powder coated to match the window and door frames, ensuring they blend seamlessly into the stylish look of the property.
Across the front façade, the security doors have been appropriately matched to the entrances: a hinged security door protects the main entrance while two sliding screen doors cover adjacent sliding door openings. Constructed from 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh, Invisi-Gard screens provide high visibility while being certified to meet and exceed impact and attack testing standards. For this home, a mid-rail was added to the screens to provide some visibility, while maintaining the overall clear outlook towards the streetscape.
For openable windows at ground level, both fixed Invisi-Gard screens and Invisi-Scape screens were installed. Invisi-Scape is Alspec’s security screening product which can be opened outward to enable a quick escape for home occupants in the case of an emergency and also allows for ease of cleaning with the hinged security screen. Externally the Invisi-Scape screens feature a flat faced sash and narrow width which blends with the home’s contemporary appearance.
More and more people are turning to Invisi-Gard security screens to address their home security needs because they know that in doing so they will have a well-protected home with no compromise on looks.
