One of the most important principles of architecture is that form follows function. It simply means that the shape or appearance of structures should be dictated by their function. Striking the perfect balance between creative expression and functional purpose has always been a challenge for architects and designers.
At Crimsafe Security Systems, this design principle has been the basic guideline throughout the evolution of their security screens. Crimsafe’s market-leading window screens and door screens are created with ‘form follows function’ in mind. Gone are the days of clunky ‘diamond-shaped’ security screens – modern security products should complement, or even enhance the look of the structure they are protecting.
In residential applications, Crimsafe delivers architecturally sensitive solutions for a range of budgets, from low-cost, multi-dwelling housing through to prestigious designer homes. Crimsafe’s customisation capabilities ensure seamless application on traditional windows and doors as well as more bespoke installations for wide-spanning bi-fold doors, patio enclosures, pool fences and more.
Even in commercial applications such as schools, hospitals, sports venues and train stations among others, Crimsafe’s security screens offer the dual benefit of meeting Australian Standards of safety and adding a sharp edge to design aesthetics, thereby, providing a complete solution to architects. Crimsafe can be particularly useful to architects when factored into the early stage design phase, as the sleek security panels can be best integrated into the overall plan.
