Australia’s premier security screen brand
INVISI-GARD is Australia’s premier security screen brand because it’s made from the toughest material in its class AND features unique patented product architecture. The COMBINATION of these two vital features provides the maximum protection for your family and your home.
At the heart of every INVISI-GARD security screen and security door is our high tensile 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh.The grade 316 mesh used in INVISI-GARD sets the world standard in terms of its quality, precision and longevity.
This class leading mesh is retained in an aluminium frame using our patented EGP (Extreme Grip Protection) retention system. This unique design ensures maximum strength and durability through an assembly technique that avoids contact between the two dissimilar metals – a major cause of corrosion over time.
INVISI-GARD is designed first and foremost to protect your family and home from would-be intruders and performs this task better than any other product on the market.
It also protects your home from flying insects and maintains your view.
INVISI-GARD security doors and screens are without question the best investment for your family’s safety. They are also the best investment for the look and value of your home.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Australian Standard for Buildings in Bushfire Prone Areas refers to the screening of openings with meshes for various Bushfire Attack Levels BAL’s. For sites to BAL-40, the requirement is that the mesh needs to have apertures less than 2mm and be made from a non-corrosive steel. INVISI-GARD mesh has apertures of 1.6mm, and is made of marine grade stainless steel and so is suitable for fire sites up to BAL-40.
This type of corrosion occurs spontaneously as a result of different metals coming into contact with each other in the presence of a conducting electrolyte like salt water, dust, even humid air or other debris. The designs of some systems use fasteners or screws to fasten the stainless steel mesh to the aluminium frame with clamps. This means of clamping the mesh brings different metals into contact, that is the screws and the aluminium frame, and creates the potential for corrosion to take place. In the case of INVISI-GARD, there are no screws or fasteners and the different metals are completely isolated from each other, so this type of corrosion cannot take place.
If the Care and Maintenance Guidelines are adhered to, INVISI-GARD will maintain a beautiful rust free appearance for the life of the product. Like all other similar stainless steel products though, if it is not maintained, there is potential for corrosion to occur.
INVISI-GARD uses grade 316 stainless steel exclusively in its mesh. This grade of stainless steel is commonly called “marine grade” stainless steel and has superior corrosion resistance to other grades of stainless steel such as grade 304. This is because of the steel’s chemistry which includes 2% Molybdenum, an alloying element not found in grade 304. Marine grade 316 offers real value for money, as the product will look pristine for many years to come with a minimum of maintenance.
INVISI-GARD was patented in 2000 and began being sold into the market shortly thereafter. The Invisi-Gard network has installed well over a million square metres of INVISI-GARD systems throughout Australia so far, and growing at an amazing rate. The INVISI-GARD brand is owned, supported and backed by ALSPEC, which has been a major distributor of aluminium building systems since 1974.
INVISI-GARD requires very minor maintenance. Simply washing the product with a mild detergent and then rinsing off the soap residue from time to time will keep the product looking fantastic for many years and will keep your 10 year warranty valid. The interval between cleaning will depend on your location. For example, if the product is by the coast, the period between cleaning is less than if the product is located inland. When the product is installed, you will receive a set of Care and Maintenance Guidelines which helps to better understand what’s required.
INVISI-GARD meets all of the requirements for Security Doors and Windows as determined by Australian Standards, these being AS5039, AS5040 and AS5041.
