Performance That Surpasses Australian Security Standards

The Australian Standards (AS5039 – 2008) stipulate a range of scientific tests that a security product must pass in order to remain in this class.

These tests ensure the intrinsic strength and structural integrity of our manufactured security doors and windows are maintained. Both SecureView Eclipx and Xceed security screens are frequently  independently tested  and consistently surpass these standards.

Independently Tested for the Ultimate Peace of Mind

  • Knife Sheer Test
  • Pull Test
  • Anti-Jemmy Test
  • Impact Test
  • Probe Test*
  • Sheer Test*

*N/A due to the hole aperture being far less that the test requirement.

The Impact Test

The Impact Test

The Impact Test is designed to simulate a physical attack on a screen. To perform this test, a large pendulum weight is used to generate 100j of impact energy at a specified point. In order to pass this AS test, the door or window screen must withstand a series of five impacts.

The Jemmy Test

The Jemmy Test

The Jemmy Test involves wedging a lever between the security door lock and hinge and the door frame to which the security screen is mounted. A mechanical winch is used in an attempt to pry the door open. In order to pass the Jemmy Test, the security door must remain securely closed. SecureView Eclipx and Xceed security screens doors and windows passed this AS test with ease.

The Pull Test

The Pull Test

When testing type 3 products, such as SecureView Eclipx, a pull test can only be carried out if a sufficient gap is achieved following the Jemmy Test. If no gap is formed, there is nowhere to mount the Pull Test bracket, or hold onto in a real scenario. Because SecureView Eclipx and Xceed products performed so well in each preceding test, the Pull Test could not be carried out and SecureView Eclipx and Xceed security doors and windows automatically passed.

The Knife Shear Test

The Knife Shear Test

As its name suggests, the Knife Shear Test is designed to test the strength of the security mesh. The Knife Shear Test involves applying mechanical force with a heavy duty knife to the security mesh being tested. This is carried out three times with a new blade for each. In order to pass the Knife Shear Test, the mesh must not allow the blade to make an incision greater than 150mm. SecureView Eclipx and Xceed security doors and windows passed this test with ease.

SecureView EclipX security screens surpass additional testing to achieve:

Aluminium Frame Tests (AS/NZS1866:1997 & AS3715 – 2002) 60603 T5 powder-coated to a minimum thickness of 60um

10,000 Hour Salt Spray Tests (AAMA2605-05 Section 7.8.2)

Stainless Mesh Tests (AS3175-2002, AAMA2603-05, AAMA2605-05, AS2331/ISO2360, ASTM D2794, AS3715, ISO1519, JIS Z2241, ASTM E1086)

Bush Fire Protection AS3959-2009 satisfying the requirements for bushfire attack level (BAL) 12.5,19,29,40.

Fire Attenuation Test Tested in general accordance with Australian Standard AS1530.4-2005, Appendix B7 achieving a 45.6% reduction in radiant heat flux between the inside and outside of the product when exposed to incident radiant heat.

Cyclonic Screen Test Australian Standard 2010:AS/NZS1170.2, Category 3 resisting a 4kg, 100mm x 50mm timber travelling at 30 metres per second (108 kph) surpassing the standard test of 15 metres per second.
