The cost of protecting your property and your loved ones is a crucial factor in any home security system. Your family’s safety and well-being are priceless, but not everyone can afford round-the-clock surveillance or the latest alarm system. That’s why more than two million Australian homes over the last 50 years have trusted Amplimesh® to protect their home with our security mesh screens for windows and doors.

It’s an investment that’ll last decades. But how much do security screens cost

As with any product or service, security costs will vary depending on several factors, including size, materials, style, lock type and any extra features that may apply to your chosen security screen. 

To help you make an informed decision about your home’s security, we’ll explain the benefits of each of these components and how they impact the final security screen cost.

Security Screen Size and Shape

Doors and windows come in different shapes and sizes. That means that your security mesh screens should be custom-built to size to look great and perform optimally, regardless of where they’re installed. 

The larger your door or window, the more materials need to be used, increasing the cost of your security screen installation. Because Amplimesh® security screen doors and windows feature high-quality materials that are tested to Australian Standards, every custom-built screen must adhere to these standards to ensure you receive unparalleled security, which is why we also offer extended warranties across our most popular security products.

High-Quality Materials

The materials used in the mesh of your security screen doors are a crucial consideration and will have a noticeable effect on the overall cost. As a rule of thumb, the more expensive the screen, the higher the quality and durability. It’s worth checking each product’s specifications and adherence to Australian security screen standards to get a more thorough understanding. 

For example, Amplimesh® allows you to choose between two infill options depending on your budget – SupaScreen® (our premium option) and IntrudaGuard® (our mid-range option). Supascreen® is made from 316 marine-grade stainless steel mesh, while IntrudaGuard® uses 5052 marine-grade perforated aluminium. 

You can rest assured both look excellent, have a high angle of view and are incredibly robust. 

Style and Accessories

Another critical factor to consider is the design of your security screen door or window. Different paints, finishes and features will contribute to their overall cost. For example, adding a mid-rail or a pet door for your furry friend is something you should discuss with your security screen professional when asking for a quote.

A Triple Lock System

The type of lock used on your security screen door can significantly improve its effectiveness. A triple lock system means your security screen door will lock in three places, allowing for a higher level of security than a single lock mechanism. Amplimesh® uses a triple lock as a default for all its security screen doors and windows. With this level of protection, you can feel safe while letting the breeze and sunlight fill your rooms.

Custom Configuration

Ultimately, the cost of security screen doors depends on your unique configuration.  A single high-quality security screen door won’t cost a fortune and can easily fit into most household budgets. However, more oversized floor-to-ceiling alfresco sliding doors will be a more significant investment. 

Amplimesh® specialise in non-standard sizes to suit your needs. We can work around your requirements, measuring and manufacturing to make the ideal screen to suit your needs. Getting a full measure and quote will give you the best idea of what you should expect to pay and the best product that suits you.

The Amplimesh® Range

If you’re looking to install some security screen doors and windows, it’s essential to make sure you do your research first. While your local hardware store will have its own screen doors and windows selection, they’re not all made equally. And most aren’t installed by a professional. 

Amplimesh® high-quality security screens are more expensive than your standard flyscreen, offering professional expertise and installation, security that exceeds Australian standards and extended warranty periods that increase the protection factor. There’s no better choice than Amplimesh® and our range of security screens.
