PROTEC PERFORMANCE - BUSHFIRE
BUSHFIRE
Protec screens are suitable for bushfire prone areas.
With perforated aluminium mesh, Protec screens are approved up to Bushfire Attack Level 29 (BAL 29).
The Australian Standard for construction of homes in bushfire prone zones (AS 3959) simply states that openable windows must be screened with corrosion-resistant steel, bronze or aluminium mesh with an opening of less than 2 mm x 2 mm.
You can rely on Prowler Proof Protec designs – even in a bushfire.
5 - PROTEC - 05 - ENERGY & UV LIGHT
ENERGY & UV LIGHT
It goes without saying that Protec’s perforated aluminium sheet will let plenty of fresh air and daylight in.
Protec security doors and windows will also help keep solar heat and UV light out during summer – and reduce heat loss come winter. 
Protec is one of very few security screens that has been WERS tested...
But it does more than that...
Prowler Proof Protec security screens have been WERS tested for energy efficiency. Get Real Secure is a family-run Brisbane Prowler Proof Authorized Dealer servicing Brisbane areas 4171 4152 4053 4010 4007 4011 4060 4065 and surrounds.
WINDOW ENERGY RATING SCHEME
THE TEST
Very few Australian security screens have been WERS tested. Prowler Proof Protec and ForceField are two of the rare exceptions.
THE RESULTS
Depending on application, Protec reduced solar heat gain and UV light by up to 62% (WERS rating 4.5 stars). Reduced heat loss was up to 18%, resulting in a 2.5 star WERS rating.
YOUR BENEFIT
Prowler Proof Protec security screens will not only help you keep cool in summer, they will also help you stay warm during winter.
PROTEC PERFORMANCE - CORROSION
CORROSION
Whenever two different metals interact there's a risk of corrosion. So the fact that Prowler Proof is welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets makes it more corrosion-resistant than other security screens.
Prowler Proof are the only security screens to have passed the 1000 hour acetic acid salt spray test. Get Real Secure is a family-run Brisbane Prowler Proof Authorized Dealer servicing Brisbane areas 4171 4152 4053 4010 4007 4011 4060 4065 and surrounds.
ACETIC ACID SALT SPRAY TEST (AS 2331.3.2)
THE TEST
The 1,000 hour acetic acid salt spray test is pure torture for a security screen. 
Acetic acid salt spray is not only saltier than sea water, it's also 10,000 times more acidic.
The test takes place in an enclosed chamber at a temperature of +35ºC with almost 100% humidity.
THE RESULTS
Passed.
Protec is one of only two complete security screens on the Australian market to pass the acetic acid salt spray test. Prowler Proof ForceField is the other.
YOUR BENEFIT
If you live in a coastal area or near industrial areas, corrosion is your security screen’s worst enemy. Prowler Proof is your safe choice.
No other brand of security screen has passed the 1,000 hour acetic acid salt spray test.
No other brand is covered by a 10 year replacement warranty.
Prowler Proof security screens have passed the Australian Standard 2331 1000 hour neutral salt spray test for security screens. Get Real Secure is a family-run Brisbane Prowler Proof Authorized Dealer servicing Brisbane areas 4171 4152 4053 4010 4007 4011 4060 4065 and surrounds.
NEUTRAL SALT SPRAY TEST (AS 2331.3.1)
THE TEST
Protec has been tested to the Australian Standard 2331 which requires the product to survive a 1,000 hour neutral salt spray test.
This test is an accelerated corrosion process that takes place in an enclosed chamber.
The spray is saltier than sea water and the temperature is maintained at +35º C with almost 100% humidity.
THE RESULTS
Passed.
Protec is one of very few complete security screens that have passed the test – most manufacturers only test the mesh.
Protec's perforated aluminium mesh has actually survived a 10,000 hour salt spray test.
YOUR BENEFIT
Prowler Proof is the most corrosion-resistant security screen on the market.
Quite simply, because it is welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets there are no untreated or raw edges to increase the risk of corrosion which occurs when two metals interact.
And as the only screen manufactured in a fully automated factory, Prowler Proof is powder coated AFTER the assembly. This eliminates the risk of damage to the paint during assembly.
11 - PROTEC - 11 - INSECT PROTECTION
INSECT PROTECTION
Prowler Proof Protec is a security screen and insect screen in one. With a diameter of just 2.0mm, the holes in the perforated aluminium sheet are big enough to see through but too small to get through – even for mosquitoes. Only fresh air and daylight gets past Protec.
12 - PROTEC - 12 - ACCESS CONTROL
ACCESS CONTROL
Prowler Proof Protec allows unassisted access for pets or people, through the addition of optional access control accessories, such as keying locks alike, pet doors for family pets and solid panels for easier wheelchair accessibility.
13 - PROTEC - 13 - FALL PREVENTION
FALL PREVENTION
The National Construction Code (NCC) / Building Code of Australia (BCA) requires openable windows in bedrooms of new residential buildings – where the floor below the window is more than 2m above the surface beneath – to be protected to reduce the risk of falling.
Windows must be fitted with either a device to restrict the window opening or a suitable screen, so a 125mm diameter sphere cannot pass through. The device or screen must also be able to withstand an outward horizontal force of 250N (25kg).
Prowler Proof Protec meets the fall prevention requirements of The National Construction Code (NCC).
