ForceField has passed every imaginable test...
...and a few you would never imagine.
The standard security tests almost seem trivial compared to being hit by five steel balls less than a centimetre in diameter at 170 km/h plus. Or by a 4 kg timber block at more than 100 km/h. 
You are safe behind a ForceField security screen.

4 FORCEFIELD - 04 - CYCLONE
CYCLONE
Whether or not you live in a cyclone-prone area, cyclone testing tells you a lot about a security screen.
It’s the toughest test a security screen can go through and most security screens have not been cyclone tested at all. Those that have been tested, often skip the ballistics test and only pass the missile test at the relatively low impact speed of 54 km/h.
ForceField has passed the missile test at impact speeds of up to 104 km/h as well as the ballistics test at impact speeds of up to 178 km/h. Have a look at the results below…

AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS TEST (AS/NZS 1170)
THE TEST
The cyclone test consists of a missile test and a ballistics test. In the missile test, a 4 kg timber block is smashed at the security screen.
In the ballistics test, 5 steel balls with a diameter of 8 mm weighing two grams each are fired at the security screen.
THE RESULTS
Passed.
During the missile test, ForceField withstood a 65 km/h corner impact and centre impacts at speeds of up to 104km/h.
The force of the centre impacts reached 1,659 joules –
16 times more than what is required to pass the Australian Standards dynamic impact test!
The steel balls in the ballistics test reached speeds of up to 178 km/h without penetrating the mesh.
YOUR BENEFIT
The results of the cyclone test gives you confidence that the ForceField security screen is the strongest residential security screen on the market.
Few if any other standard residential security screens have passed this gruelling test.

US HURRICANE & PRESSURE CYCLE TEST
(AAMA 506-06/ASTM E1996/ASTM E1886)
THE TEST
The US Hurricane & pressure cycle test consists of a missile test and a pressure cycle test.
The missile test (Level D) smashes a 4.1 kg piece of timber at the security screen at an impact speed of 54 km/h.
The same security screen is then air pressure cycled – simulating various wind directions and wind speeds – 9,000 times at intervals of less than 5 seconds.
THE RESULTS
Passed.
Neither test caused any problems for ForceField.
The missile test is less gruelling than the Australian Standards test, which was passed easily.
The pressure cycle test report simply states that ‘the specimen showed no resultant failure or duress after cycle testing’.
YOUR BENEFIT
The US Hurricane & pressure cycle test adds further evidence to the fact that the ForceField security screen is the strongest residential security screen on the market.
