Whenever two different metals interact there’s a risk of corrosion. So the fact that ForceField® is welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets makes it more corrosion-resistant than other security screens. Very few security screens have survived the Australian Standards 2331 corrosion test – MOST MANUFACTURERS ONLY TEST THERE MESH. The test is a 1,000 hour salt spray test and the ForceField® security screen survived with no visible corrosion. ForceField’s 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh has actually survived a 10,000 hour salt spray test.

Australian Standards test (AS 2331)
The test: ForceField® has been tested to the Australian Standard 2331 which requires the product to survive a 1,000 hour neutral salt spray test.This test is an accelerated corrosion process that takes place in an enclosed chamber. The spray is saltier than sea water and the temperature is maintained at
+35º C with almost 100% humidity.
The result: Passed. ForceField® is one of very few security screens that have passed the test – most manufacturers only test the mesh. ForceField’s 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh has actually survived a 10,000 hour salt spray test.
Your benefit: ForceField® is the most corrosion-resistant security screen on the market. Quite simply because it is welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets. Whenever two different metals interact there’s a risk of corrosion. This risk is eliminated in a ForceField® security screen.We also use only marine grade 316 stainless steel mesh, where as there are still products on the market that only use a low grade 304 mesh, which is not marine grade and should NOT be used on the coastal environment
