Why SecureView 316 Security Screen Doors are the better choice!
Every company will tell you that their security door is the best. But it’s important that you find a security door that suits your needs best. We’re going to explain why 316 stainless steel security screen doors are the better choice for coastal locations, including the entire east coast of Australia.
What are the benefits of 316 marine grade stainless steel?
There are two grades commonly used in security doors screens, 304 and 316. The key difference is that 2% molybdenum is added to 316 to further improve corrosion resistance when exposed to chemical corrosives such as seawater and brine solutions. Like Grade 304, it is also durable, easy to fabricate, clean, weld and finish. However, unlike Grade 304, it provides greater protection from salt spray and brine.
We have another blog that goes into more detail on the difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel. Studies show that salt air can travel up to 80 kilometres inland. With more than 85 per cent of Australians living within 50 kilometres of the sea, it’s worth investing in 316 marine grade security screens.
At SP Screens, we use 316 marine grade stainless steel because we feel it is the better choice for buildings in the locations we service – from Sydney to Brisbane.
What is SecureView security mesh made from?
SecureView Security Screen Doors are made from .8mm 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh, providing ultimate security with clear unobstructed views. Using 316 marine grade stainless steel makes the security mesh corrosion resistant. The SecureView mesh has been independently tested to pass a 10,000 hour salt spray test, making it the ideal security mesh for the Australian coastline. We supply SecureView 316 screen doors and window screens to customers from Wollongong to Brisbane.
SecureView is a security screen, bushfire screen, fire attenuation screen and cyclone screen all in one. Even if you don’t live in cyclone or bushfire prone areas, you will have added piece of mind knowing your security screen is incredibly strong as it has passed these additional tests.

How do I compare security screens?
Most wholesalers engineer their security doors slightly differently, so it is hard to compare like for like. It is important to determine what your criteria is to find the most appropriate security screen for your needs. Our blog and video on how to choose a security screen door may help you.
