After outgrowing its old location, Boony’s Screens has conveniently relocated to a new factory in Park Avenue.

A locally owned and operated business, owner Cheyne Metze took on the family business when stepdad, Wayne and Mum Tracey retired in January 2022.

“We moved to this new location in early 2023 during the Christmas holiday period and were able to set it up ready for the new year,” Mr Metze said.

“It’s been good being able to get our business name out there, and we have a lot of customers coming in to look at the products, such as our Crimsafe triple lock doors.

“We have a lot more space and room to manufacture and store stock.”

In addition to the new space, Mr Metze said Boony’s Screens employed two new staff members, who have become a vital part to help keep up with the demand of customers wanting to secure their homes.

“We prioritise break-ins and can attend, assess, and quote within 48 hours from first contact,” he said.

“We also have instant communication with our customers.

“When we walk away from a job, we want to be confident that we’ve helped them feel safe in their home.”

As a licensee for Crimsafe, Boony’s Screens is proud to offer superior home security to clients throughout the Rockhampton, Gracemere and Capricorn Coast regions.

“Crimsafe has recently partnered with a leading home security camera brand, and Boony’s Screens will be offering our customers brand new products to help secure their home very soon.”

Mr Metze said it was important people don’t become complacent about security, especially while at home.

“Crime prevention is about being prepared and vigilant,” he said.

“It’s important to always lock your doors especially when you’re home, and place your keys in a safe location before going to bed.”
