Security Testing
Australian Standard AS5039-2008 & AS5041-2003 – Security Testing Amplimesh® products are subjected to a rigorous regimen of impact tests, jemmy attacks and pull testing under this standard, to ensure that the inherent strength and structural integrity of the manufactured security product is maintained.
Grille Shear Test
Australian Standard AS5039-2008 & AS5041-2003 – Grille Shear TestSecuraMesh® Grilles are tested for material hardness under this standard, to ensure the force required to sever the cords of SecuraMesh® grilles meet or exceed the requirements of the standard.
Knife Shear Test
Australian Standard AS5039-2008 & AS5041-2003 – Knife Shear TestSupaScreen® Stainless Steel meshes are tested for material hardness and tensile strength by subjecting the mesh to a standardised physical cutting attack, which draws a knife over the mesh a number of times.

Fire

Fire Attenuation Test
Australian Standard AS1530.4-2005, Appendix B7 – Fire Attenuation TestSupaScreen® Stainless Steel Security products have been tested in general accordance with this standard and when exposed to incident radiant heat SupaScreen® achieves a 41% reduction in the radiant heat flux between the inside and outside of the product.
Bushfire Test
Australian Standard AS1530.8.1-2007 – Bushfire TestSupaScreen® Stainless Steel Security products have been tested under this standard and satisfied the requirements for Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) 40.
