  • Dynamic Impact Test

This test stimulates an intruder trying to kick his way through a security screen. The test is performed with a heavy bag (45kg/99 lbs.) smashing into the security screen with a force of 100 joules. The test is repeated 5 times and Fasolid exceeds the testing.

  • Knife Shear Test

This test simulates a knife attack on the security mesh. A heavy duty trimming knife is dragged along a 250 mm/9.8 inch line with a force of 150 N (15 kg/33 lbs.) vertically and up to 350N (35 kg/ 77 lbs.) horizontally.

  • Jimmy Test

This test simulates an intruder using a lever to get past the security screen door or window. The test is performed with a large crowbar at all locking, hinging and fastening points up to 450 N (45 kg/ 99 lbs.) for 20 seconds, way beyond the capability of most potential intruders.

  • Neutral Salt Spray  Test

This test is designed to check corrosion resistance for security screen. Fasolid 316L marine grade security screen survive a 1,000 hours (equivalency to 10 years) neutral salt spray test.
