50 years in the making – How Amplimesh® technology has evolved

It seems like a lifetime ago that we were playing these ads on television screens across Australia. Since then we’re thankful that Amplimesh’s® technology has developed and changed, along with the quality of commercials!

Check out two of our older commercials:


Years of research and testing, along with emerging technologies have led Amplimesh® beyond traditional diamond grilles. These days, Amplimesh® supplies cutting edge security screen products to Australian families, including SupaScreen® 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh and IntrudaGuard® 5052 marine grade perforated aluminium.

So why did we move away from traditional diamond grille screens, and what are the benefits of these state of the art products?

How well do SupaScreen® and IntrudaGuard® keep the insects out?

Diamond grilles are generally paired with thin flyscreens that may provide some security against insects, but are susceptible to wear and tear and eventually expose holes, no longer performing their simple task of keeping out pests.

High quality security screens such as SupaScreen® and IntrudaGuard® feature a similar aperture to that of a typical flyscreen to keep out flying insects, but also have incredible tensile strength to keep out would be intruders.

These screens have also been subjected to the most rigorous environmental tests and exceed Australian standards for security screen products. An Amplimesh® security screen will far outperform and outlast any traditional fly screen.

How do they fit into the style of your home?

It’s no secret that diamond grilles are not the most aesthetically pleasing product on the market.

They are obtrusive, outdated and after years of weathering, the rust and flaky paint certainly won’t add any extra appeal to your home.

The view of your outdoor surroundings is also obstructed by these bulky diamond grilles. So while they do provide a somewhat more secure appearance to the entrance of your home, they add little other value.

Amplimesh® security screens offer optimum visibility and a range of styles and colours to suit any design and lifestyle. With dozens of colour choices to choose from, you don’t have to compromise the aesthetics of your beautiful home to make sure it’s secure.

These Amplimesh® products also offer a smooth and seamless design from the inside and out – no bolts, screws or ugly clamps are on display.

With an incredible angle of view, it’s as if the screen isn’t there at all. Enjoy the outside on the inside and let that cool outdoor breeze circulate through your home without needing to keep doors open.

How long will it last?

You’ll find that so many of the outdated grilles installed years ago do not fare well against the elements, particularly near the coast. Once the outer coat of paint exposes the metal underneath, rust very quickly settles in and creates an eyesore in your home. Hardly a good first impression for your guests.

Amplimesh® SupaScreen® and IntrudaGuard® are made from only the highest quality materials, meaning your security screens will not rust or corrode, even when exposed to harsh elements such as sea salt spray.

Our security screens are backed by a 10-year warranty, so you can feel confident that your security screen will last the long haul. Buying a SupaScreen® or IntrudaGuard® security screen is an investment as opposed to a quick fix, but it will be one that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.

It’s clear to see why Amplimesh® products have evolved beyond traditional diamond grille security screens. We pride ourselves on being industry innovators. We’re one step ahead of the game so you can feel confident in purchasing the very best security screen on the market.
