Keeping your home secure

Cheyne took over the family business in January this year and is passionate about home security.

With a vision to keep the local community safe, Boonys Screens is a small family-owned and operated business doing just that.

Currently owned by Cheyne Metz, who took over the family business in January this year, he had followed in his parents’ footsteps.

“My mum and step-dad had the business for six years,” he said.

“I had prior experience in the industry and always wanted to go back.

“I helped them start the business initially, and now they were looking at retiring.”

While there haven’t been too many changes, Cheyne is looking forward to expanding Boonys Screens to service Rockhampton, Yeppoon, and the Central Highlands.

“We have outgrown our current location and are looking at getting something bigger closer to town,” he said.

“We then hope to employ more people as the shed will have a full showroom.

“At the moment, we employ six people, but once we move are wanting to at least double in size.”

Although Cheyne has only been the owner of Boonys Screens for a few months, he is passionate about home security.

“As a manufacturer making something from nothing, it is satisfying to see that you have made the door, screen, or patio enclosure,” he said.

“When you walk away from a job knowing that you have helped customers feel safe in their homes.

“Especially with all the crime happening.”

Boonys Screens is a licensee for Crimsafe with a strong focus on front doors, double doors, and patio enclosures to assist with home security.

“We help with integrated living and NDIS work which involves us helping secure the homes to fit their needs,” Cheyne said.

“We also work with multiple real estates to complete repairs on doors and windows.

“Later this year, we will also be expanding into awning and blinds.”

Boonys Screen is proud to say that their customer service is what sets them apart.

“We offer same-day service,” Cheyne said.

“So, if someone has been broken into, we will be there straight away to fix it.

“We also have instant communication with our customers.”
