How to build a window security screen?

I am after a security screen for a street-facing window , but I don't like the diamond grille for this window, so I prefer something  similar to the "crimsafe" modern screens.


Any suggestions on the material to use (frame and mesh ) ...

Re: DIY Window Security Screen

Ive had luck with I put them on my daughters place. We have been happy with them they used to do three types. Looking just now seem to only do two now, one aluminium , one stainless steel.  They come with everything you need to fit them and they have a video on how to do your measurements for your order.

Re: How to build a window security screen?

Hello @rw 


I'm sorry but bunnings currently does not stock custom sized window security screens or the steel screen mesh. 


However, if you are worried about security, I would like to suggest having a look at the Eufy Entry Sensor or perhaps a security camera with motion sensor or flood lights features. Both devices are WiFi capable and will send you a notification if they sense any motion outside your window area.


If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know.
