5 Security Screen Door Myths Debunked

5 Security Screen Door Myths Debunked

If you’re hesitant to upgrade your security screen door – or perhaps you never had one in the first place but need to get one – it’s possible that you’re haunted by the ghosts of past mesh screen doors. If chunky diamond grille security screen doors with tears in the mesh or flimsy screens that fall out of place come to mind (and send chills up your spine), be reassured that times have changed and the outlook is surprisingly stylish, functional and affordable.

Allow us to demystify five security screen door myths to help you in the decision-making process.

“They’re ugly!”

False. Remember the diamond grille security screen doors we discussed? Or perhaps the jail-like bars? Chills. These unsightly bar and grille style security screens Perth homes have had installed over the years are not only unsightly but very out-dated, so it’s no wonder people associate mesh screen doors with these. Thankfully, new, unrivalled technology and streamlined, minimalistic security screen doors are available on the market that don’t compromise on looks. In fact, they look pretty darn good given there are so many visually appealing designs, colours, fittings and materials available to choose from.

“It won’t suit my home”

False. There are a myriad of possibilities available on the market now when it comes to selecting the right security screens. Perth homes range in style from character, federation, classic brick and tile, modern and contemporary designs, and there are security screen doors to suit all tastes. Whether it’s standard mesh security doors, French doors, single and double doors, hinged doors, sliding doors or stacker doors, security screen door choices have never been more versatile.


“The screens will block my view”

False. With leading mesh technology, brands such as Amplimesh promise a sheer, unique design and unobstructed views, leaving you with a clear outlook over your yard, pool, or garden.

“Intruders can break through the mesh”

False. Gone are the days of flimsy mesh doors that would disintegrate like a wet tissue. The superior Amplimesh SupaScreen security mesh is made using 316 marine grade stainless steel, woven into a fine mesh that remains highly tensile. Amplimesh has been rigorously tested and passes the official Australian Standard Knife Shear Test, Performance Testing – Single lmpact, Fire Attenuation Test and Bushfire Compliance. Speaks for itself really. For an Amplimesh certified expert in Perth, contact the team at Action Glass & Aluminium.

“They’re expensive”

False. While you can definitely opt for a higher-end product with all the bells and whistles and a more premium price tag, if you’re on a budget, we can absolutely help assist you with your requirements to meet your budget while still receiving a top-quality screen door to keep out the intruders and bugs while still suiting your home, complementing your style and allowing clear visibility.
