What standards does Invisi-Gard meet?
Australian Standards for security screens are some of the toughest in the world. When installed correctly by Stop Thief Security, Invisi-Gard meets all the requirements set for those rigorous standards.
Does the product require any maintenance?
Very little maintenance is required. Washing the product with a mild detergent and rinsing the soap residue off with clean water from time to time will keep the product looking it’s best for many years. This is also a condition for ensuring the warranty stays valid. You will receive guidelines on the care and maintenance of the product when you make your purchase. If the product is installed on a property on the coast, you will need to clean the product more often than if the product is installed on a property inland, away from the salt air.
How long has Invisi-Gard been in the market?
Invisi-Gard was originally patented in 2000 before becoming available on the market soon after. Alspec own and support the Invisi-Gard brand, they have been a major distributor of aluminium building systems since 1974.
What grade of stainless steel is your mesh made from?
The mesh in Invisi-Gard is exclusively 316 grade stainless steel, this is known as ‘marine grade’ stainless steel, highly resistant to corrosion and superior to other grades such as 304. Due to the fact that 316 grade stainless steel looks fresh and unblemished for many years with very little maintenance, it represents excellent value for money.
The combinations and quantities (chemistry) of metals are what determine the grades. The combination in 316 contains 2% Molybdenum, a blending element not found in 304 grade.
Does Invisi-Gard rust?
If you follow the guidelines set out for the Care and Maintenance, Invisi-Gard will remain rust free for the life of the product. Like all stainless steel products, it does have to be cleaned and maintained regularly to avoid corrosion.
What is Galvanic Corrosion or Electrolysis?
Galvanic corrosion is the term applied to the reaction created when different metals come into contact with each other when there is also the presence of a conducting element. That element can be salt water, dust, humidity or other contaminants.
The design of some security products need screws, fasteners or clamps to attach the mesh to the frame. This often creates a reaction from the metals in the those fasteners coming into contact with the mesh and/or frame and creates the perfect environment for corrosion.
Invisi-Gard is completely free of screws and fasteners and the different metals are completely isolated from each other making this type of corrosion impossible.
What is the fire rating for Invisi-Gard?
The Australian Standard for Buildings in Bushfire Prone Areas refers to the screening of openings with meshes for various Bushfire Attack Levels (BAL’s). For sites to BAL-40, the requirement is that the mesh needs to have perforations less than 2mm and be made from a non-corrosive steel. Invisi-Gard mesh has holes less of 1.6mm and is made of 316 marine grade stainless steel, this makes it suitable for fire sites up to BAL-40.
