Q: “Why is Crimsafe so strong?”
A: According to Crimsafe, “When hit by an impact like a kick, Crimsafe spreads the load around the whole frame and back into structure of the building, meaning Crimsafe can resist enormous impacts compared to plastic wedging systems which only localize the impact, making them relatively easy to kick out compared to Crimsafe.
The mesh is also made out of 0.9mm diameter 304 structural grade wire strands, and woven together in such a tight way that each strand supports the others around it.”
Q: “How well can you see through Crimsafe mesh?”
A: Maintaining your view is important, both for quality of life and aesthetics. Thus, the aperture size is 1.5mm x 1.5mm, allowing you to maintain an unspoiled view during normal lighting conditions. Besides, what’s the point of adding homes security measures if you’re going to feel like the criminal instead of the criminal himself, right?
