ForceField

ForceField security doors and security windows are near invisible and virtually unbreakable.

It’s almost invisible, still it’s near impossible to get past. ForceField® is welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets. A weld is stronger than any screw or rivet and it looks better too. With its seamless corners, ForceField® is the best looking security screens on the market.

Prowler Proof security doors and security windows are Australia’s best looking and strongest performing security screens.

They are the only security screens manufactured in a fully automated world class factory, delivered to you in the industry’s shortest lead time, and backed by a 10 year full replacement warranty.

When you choose Prowler Proof, you know you’ve made the right choice in ‘creating a safer place’ for your family.ForceField® has passed every imaginable test – and a few you would never imagine, watch the videos below. The standard security tests almost seem trivial compared to being hit by 5 steel balls less than a centimetre in diameter at 170 km/h plus. Or by a 4 kg timber block at more than 100 km/h. You are safe behind a ForceField® security screen.

Give your Brisbane / Ipswich home added Value and Safety with Shutterups Stainless Steel Security Products.

The assembly system is patented and unique to ForceField®. The heavy duty aluminium frame and the marine grade stainless steel mesh are joined together in a mechanical and chemical bond. It is virtually unbreakable and provides complete insulation of the two metals….eliminating a major cause of corrosion.

Prowler Proof ForceField® is available as hinge doors, sliding doors and window screens, custom made to your home. We even have a range of pet doors to suit your furry family members. You can choose from over 300 colours, (try the colour selectors on Prowler Proof Website) as well as the standard colour range in the manufactured range. We will guide you through the many options and help you make the right decision.

The closer you look the better it gets….Prowler Proof warranty is second to none.

  • YOU GET A BRAND NEW PRODUCT – The Prowler Proof warranty is Australia’s only replacement warranty. Instead of a repair job, you will get a brand new product.
  • YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO A THING – The moment your Prowler Proof product leaves the factory, you’re covered by the warranty. You don’t even need to keep your receipt – all prowler proof products have a serial number that can be tacked in the system.
  • CLAIMING IS EASY – Two ways to claim, you can simply log onto Prowler Proof website and be contacted by the next business day or contact us here at Shutterup via phone.
  • CLEAN AT YOUR LEISURE – Prowler Proof products are made to last. It is expected for you to look after your prowler proof product like you would any other major investment but Prowler Proof is the only product on the market that does not request the customer to perform rigorous cleaning schedules for it to still be under warranty.

Performance Tests

Dynamic impact test

The Test

The dynamic impact test is designed to simulate an intruder trying to kick his way through a security door or window. The test is performed with a bag full of lead shot and sand, weighing more than 40 kg. The bag is smashed into the security screen with a force of 100 joules. The test is repeated 5 times.

The Result

Passed. The dynamic impact test is not much of a challenge for a ForceField® security door or window. During cyclone testing ForceField® has survived more than 16 times the force.

Your Benefit

You will always feel secure behind a ForceField® security screen. It passes the Australian Standard for dynamic impact with ease – it has withstood forces that no human could apply.

Jemmy test

The Test

The jemmy test is designed to simulate an intruder using a lever to get past the security door or window. The test is performed with a large screwdriver at all locking, hinging and fastening points. The force applied is up to 450 N (45 kg) for 20 seconds – way beyond the capability of most potential intruders.

The Result

Passed. The dynamic impact test left no gap to insert the screw-driver, so the jemmy test couldn’t even be performed on the ForceField® security window! All ForceField® security doors passed the test easily – all locking and hinging points were secure after the test.

Your Benefit

Even armed with a large screwdriver or similar, potential intruders won’t get past a ForceField® security door or window.

Pull test

The Test

Imagine an intruder trying to pull out your security screen…that’s what the pull test is all about. The security door or window must be able to withstand pulling forces of up to 2 kN (200 kg) for 20 seconds at various positions.

The Result

Passed. The mesh in a ForceField® security screen is so fine that there is nothing to grab. Even after the dynamic impact test and the jemmy test, there is no gap between mesh and frame on the ForceField® security doors and windows either. The test lab has nowhere to pull so the test is over before it begins.

Your Benefit

Good luck with trying to pull out a ForceField® security door or window. If the test lab can’t find anywhere to pull, a potential intruder has no hope.


Probe test

The Test

The probe test simulates an intruder having created a gap and trying to get his hand inside to unlock a door or a window. A deflecting force of 1.5 kN (150 kg) is applied to each opposite side of the opening to increase the space enough to get a hand through.

The Result

Passed. This test simply can’t be performed on a ForceField® security door or window because the aperture in the mesh is less than 2 mm x 2 mm, far less than the test requirement of a 213 mm diameter probe.

Your Benefit

The mesh in ForceField® security doors and windows won’t allow an intruder to get his hand inside to unlock a door or a window.


Knife shear test

The Test

The knife shear test simulates a knife attack on your security screen. A heavy duty trimming knife is dragged along a 250 mm line with a force of 150 N (15 kg) vertically and up to 350 N (35 kg) horizontally. The test is repeated 3 times – each time with a new blade – along the same line.

The Result

Passed. To pass this Australian Standards test, continuous penetration of less than 150 mm is required. The knife shear test hardly leaves a scratch in a ForceField® security door or window.

Your Benefit

Even a strong burglar with a heavy duty trimming knife and 3 fresh blades won’t stand a chance of getting past a ForceField® security door or window.


Shear test

The Test

Cutting pliers are popular tools among burglars. The shear test simulates a cutting plier attack on a security screen. The shearing tool applies increasing pressure until the sample strand breaks. The force required to break one strand must be at least 3 kN (300 kg).

The Result

Passed. The test simply can’t be performed on a ForceField® security door or window because the mesh is too tightly woven for the pliers to get a hold. But – for the record – the average breaking point of a strand exceeds the standard by more than 60%.

Your Benefit

A potential intruder armed with cutting pliers will be disappointed with your choice of security screen. There’s no way the pliers will get a hold.

“Working with all brands in the security screen market, we have seen many security products on the market and here at Shutterup we are proud to be a authorised dealer for Prowler Proof – what we believe to be the best on the market for our customers.”

Why Choose ForceField Security?

Does not hinder your view – keeping your home looking great both externally and internally.

Feedback we’ve received from homeowners and realty staff has been that having Forefield installed to their homes has provided a greater value to their property price.

Use the strongest on the market to create a safe barrier. Keep your home entry points protected as well as your family.

Screens provide ventilation but can also keep solar heat and UV light out during summer, and reduce heat loss during winter. WERS testing and testing to the European Standard (EN 14501) show the reduction in solar heat and damaging UV light, and reduction in heat loss, provided by the screen.

Prowler Proof is the only security screen manufacturer that gives you 50 standard colours and more than 250 optional colours to choose from. So easily match to your existing exterior house colours.

All Prowler Proof Diamond designs have been through the same gruelling security tests – and passed them with ease. All tests have to be passed in succession by the same test sample to get the stamp of approval. A severe challenge for any other security screen…but not for Prowler Proof.

We had Shutterup install a shutter on our kitchen window. Previously we had three other companies tell us that what I wanted could not be done, that the window was too large. One business without even looking at the window. I always explained what I wanted before booking a quote.The Shutterup rep took time to explain how it could be done and an order was placed. The instillation was done as I required and it looks great.The installer took time to sanitize his hands and kept everything tidy.
