Independently Tested for the Ultimate Peace of Mind.

Our most recent Australian Standards tests were independently performed by scientists from Curtin University in Western Australia, AZUMA Design & Testing in South East Queensland and ASSA ABLOY in Brisbane. In all cases, SecureView security doors and window screens passed all AS tests with flying colours. The Australian Standards require the following tests to be performed on one screen in the following order:

Impact Test

The Impact Test is designed to simulate a physical attack on a screen. To perform this test, a large pendulum weight is used to generate 100j of impact energy at a specified point. In order to pass this AS test, the door or window screen must withstand a series of five impacts.

Jemmy Test

The Jemmy Test involves wedging a lever between the security door lock and hinge and the door frame to which the security screen is mounted. A mechanical winch is used in an attempt to pry the door open. In order to pass the Jemmy Test, the security door must remain securely closed. SecureView’s security doors and windows passed this AS test with ease.

Pull Test

When testing type 3 products, such as SecureView, a pull test can only be carried out if a sufficient gap is achieved following the Jemmy Test. If no gap is formed, there is nowhere to mount the Pull Test bracket, or hold onto in a real scenario. Because SecureView products performed so well in each preceding test, the Pull Test could not be carried out and SecureView’s security doors and windows automatically passed.

Knife Shear Test

As its name suggests, the Knife Shear Test is designed to test the strength of the security mesh. The Knife Shear Test involves applying mechanical force with a heavy duty knife to the security mesh being tested. This is carried out three times with a new blade for each. In order to pass the Knife Shear Test, the mesh must not allow the blade to make an incision greater than 150mm.
