Security screens are a smart and attractive way to keep your home safe and secure, whether you're home or away.
These screens are custom made to meet your exact specifications. Made from aluminum and stainless steel, they are resistant to the rust and oxidation of normal windows and screens. Burglars, or those who wish you harm, are not able to break through these screens. This security feature will make the screens ideal for school and University environments.
They have patented a Single Point Release Latch. A single handle unlocks 3 locks, bottom, and left and right side, at the same time. This assures that children, elderly or handicapped people are able to open the security screens in cases of emergency, or to be used as an egress window. The screens are also available in a hinged configuration, this facilitates cleaning of the original window.

The .028 gauge stainless steel mesh is excellent for Housing Authorities, as it has a lower price, and offers a light to medium security level. With the .035 gauge stainless steel this is the heavy duty security level.
We use .035 and .028 gauge wire for this door.
This door has manual deadbolts on the top and bottom on the inside of the door. For housing authorities, you would need to ask if they want the dead bolts or not. With .035 this door is heavy security.

The Spring Bear Hunt, which has been ongoing for a number of years, has been cancelled. And specifically with the blueberry crop failure last year, means that a larger number of Bears are stressed from a reduced availability of a readily available food source. Bears, by their very nature are scavengers, it's in there DNA. So they have an uncanny ability to figure out where there is readily and relatively easy access to food. Unfortunately this translates to Bear intrusions into Cottages and Dwellings. As if that is not bad enough, Bears have an excellent memory, and they frequently return to locations where they have previously found food.
The Tapco Security Screens are Bear Resistant. Keeping a Bear outside is the best remedy to preventing them from coming inside.
