Australian Standard AS5039-2008 & AS5041-2003 – Security Testing
Amplimesh® SupaScreen® and IntrudaGuard® products are subjected to a rigorous regime of impact tests, jemmy attacks and pull testing under this standard, to ensure that the inherent strength and structural integrity of the manufactured security screen is maintained.
Australian Standard AS5039-2008 & AS5041-2003 – Knife Shear Test
SupaScreen® and IntrudaGuard® 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. These Amplimesh® meshes meet or exceed the Australian standard.
Australian Standard AS1530.4-2005, Appendix B7 – Fire Attenuation Test
SupaScreen® security screens 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.
Australian Standard AS1530.8.1-2007 – Bushfire Test
SupaScreen® security screens have been tested under this standard and satisfied the requirements for Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) 40.
Australian Standard AS1170.2-2002, Clause 5.3.2 – Cyclonic Missile Impacts
In cyclonic regions windows and doors may need to be protected from flying debris, SupaScreen® security screens have been tested to this standard, resisting the 4kg, 100mm x 50mm timber travelling at 15m/s.
Australian Standard AS1170.2-1989 – Cyclonic Missile Impacts
QLD Government, Design Guidelines for Aust. Public Cyclone Shelters, 2002. Department of Health, Western Australia Health Facility Guidelines for Engineering Services, 2006. SupaScreen® security screens have also been tested to and satisfied the more onerous testing regime of this Standard. The same piece of timber is impacted into the screen at the faster speed of 20m/s followed by 8mm Steel balls at 30m/s followed by fatigue testing.
