Aged care facilities are increasingly investing in window security screens to ensure safety for their residents as well as contribute to their sense of wellbeing.

While physical security against unauthorised access is the primary driver for aged care facilities when installing security screens to openable windows, multi-use security screens such as Invisi-Gard offer many more benefits to both residents and staff.

Openable windows are desirable for the aged care environment as exposure to natural light and fresh air has been demonstrated to have a beneficial impact on the health of residents. These windows also give residents a degree of control over their personal comfort. With security screens on their windows, residents have the added assurance of a safe connection with the outdoors.

Invisi-Gard screens are specifically designed to maintain light, air and views while adding security to openable windows. Made from tightly woven 316 marine grade stainless steel, the extremely flat mesh is exceptionally clear, allowing views to be appreciated, while promoting natural airflow.

In facilitating natural ventilation, the screens have the added potential to reduce a facility’s reliance on mechanical cooling systems, leading to energy cost savings. For multi-level facilities, the screens also serve as a fall prevention measure for openable windows, as they satisfy the relevant Australian Standards to resist impact and force.

In bushfire prone areas, Invisi-Gard screens protect buildings with their fire attenuation properties while in tropical zones, their impact-resistant mesh will help minimise damage caused by airborne projectiles in extreme weather events.

As a member company of the National Security Screen Association, Invisi-Gard ensures their products comply with the latest regulations and licensing requirements, and contribute to the maintenance of high industry standards.

By installing security screens, aged care providers can have peace of mind that their residents and staff are safe and secure while they enjoy the best possible care environment.
