Crimsafe Information

"How can I be sure I'm buying Crimsafe?"

There are 5 ways to be sure.

1. Crimsafe is exclusively distributed by the approved licensees listed on this website. Approved licensees may also wholesale Crimsafe to approved reseller outlets. Search for your nearest licensee by using our postcode locator above and look for their accreditation in their showroom or ask them to provide their credentials during your in-home inspection.

2. Call Crimsafe on 1800 688 188 and query the name of the business that has offered to sell you Crimsafe products. We can tell you in short order whether or not the person you're dealing with is an approved licensee.

3. Look for the Crimsafe badge. A Crimsafe badge is physically clipped onto the upper left or right corner of your installed security screen giving you the assurance that your screen is a genuine Crimsafe screen installed by an Authorised Crimsafe Licensee.

The badge also acts as an extra deterrent to intruders scoping the neighbourhood looking for a property that will allow quick access. By identifying you have Crimsafe security screens miscreants are more likely to move on to an easier target.

4. Crimsafe is the only security screen product in Australia which features screws drilled through the frame and the mesh, to lock it in place. Ask to see a cross-section sample and check for the screws going through the frame and mesh.

5. Crimsafe licensees use a type of installation screw that is unique to Crimsafe, so that burglars cannot simply unscrew your screens from the wall. Each drill bit used to screw them in is tracked by Crimsafe's head office to ensure they're only used by licensed manufacturers and authorised resellers.
