How Much Do Security Screens Cost?

Prices will vary from supplier to supplier and we will give some context as to why that is. CommandeX is a wholesale provider of security screen systems designed and patented by us. We supply licensed dealers across Australia who are all committed to providing quality products and service. Our dealers check measure, manufacture and install Australian Standard 5039 compliant security screen doors and windows. As they are independent business, dealers will price their security screens to factor in their labour and associated costs.

How much does a security screen door cost?

To give you an indication of industry pricing, you can expect to pay between $800 to $1,200 for a triple locked, standard sized (approx. 860mm x 2100mm) Security Screen Door custom made and installed (Hinged or Sliding).

As we mentioned price differs considerably, but so too does quality and they don’t necessarily go hand in hand, so we encourage you to do your research. We’ve put together a separate article that covers what to look for in a security screen. In this article we explain Australian Standards 5039, Security Door Locks and the importance of a triple lock, different types of security mesh and the process used to assemble the security door or window security screen.

There are a few variables which can increase the price, such as:

  • Selecting a non-standard colour
  • Selecting a wood effect aluminium door frame
  • New door tracks for a sliding door (if required)
  • A build out frame if your existing door frame is old or damaged. Note: a security door will not meet Australian standardsif it is attached to a door frame that is not structurally sound.
  • Scaffolding for a high installation
  • More than one installer if required

What’s the difference between a custom made security screen and an ‘off the shelf’ product?

This really depends on the supplier, the materials used and whether or not the security screen meets Australian Standards 5039. While it is possible to buy quality security screens online, measuring and installation is equally important. A licensed installer will ensure the security screen is custom made to exact measurements to fit perfectly within the door or window frame.
