If it’s not Crimsafe, it’s not crim safe


For Capricorn Screens, Awning and Blinds, home security has always been a concern and one they take very seriously according to Design Specialist and business owner Jessica Pierpoint.

“We have been the local Crimsafe dealer in Rockhampton for 23 years, so we’re well versed in explaining and educating people about what they need for their homes” she said.

With a range of products including hinged and sliding doors, screens for sliding window, louvres, double hung and casements, there is a solution for every home.

“Unfortunately, our region is still pretty busy on the break and enter side of things and there is an increased awareness for home security. I feel our job is to educate and offer advice to help make your home more secure and to ensure people feel safe and secure to stay in their own home.”

With Capricorn Screens offering a free measure and quote service they can offer tailored advice.

“We encourage homeowners to educate themselves about the different types of screens available. If you ask for Crimsafe, make sure you’re speaking with a licenced dealer like Capricorn Screens,” Jessica said.

“With alternative look-a-alike products available it can be confusing for consumers. With mesh held in with plastic wedge or tape, and incorrect locks which don’t comply with the Australian Standard it’s important to understand the difference.

“Crimsafe is the only product manufactured with the exclusive Screw-Clamp system that exceeds every security standard and consistently outperforms all competitor products. Our customers expect the highest level of protection for their families, which is why we don’t compromise when it comes to the quality, strength, or durability of Crimsafe security screen doors and windows.

“It’s surprising how many homes I visit, and the homeowner tells me “this is my Crimsafe door” and it’s a look-a-like. And then after I explain all the details to them, they are heartbroken because they honestly believed they had the genuine product. When you are choosing a premium product and you’re not the cheapest product on the market, I like to invite clients to the showroom so they can see the product for themselves as it provides confidence in their investment.”

With more and more people aging in their own homes rather than moving, security is becoming a major factor. Capricorn Screens is an approved contractor for Home Assist and other Home Care organisations who assist seniors to help make suitable home improvements.

“It’s great to work with local providers and I enjoy visiting the homes of clients and listening to their safety concerns, proactively providing solutions and offering advice on emergency exit plans and placement of safe-e-scape exit screens for fire safety” she said.

Jessica’s strongest advice for home security is “Your security door must have a triple lock and if it doesn’t you should get in the good habit of locking with a key and not the snib.”

Capricorn Screens has been a local business for 43 years. Proudly manufacturing all their Crimsafe products in their Rockhampton workshops, it’s their local team, local knowledge and trusted experience that makes this second-generation family business a trusted local.
