Ultra 316 Stainless

Ultra 316 Stainless escapes tradition, free from mechanical fixings such as old fashioned screws and rivets. Instead Ultra 316 Stainless employs 3M VHB high performance adhesive technology to create effortless strength. The acrylic chemistry of the 3M VHB adhesive delivers exceptional durability while its viscoelasticity provides superior energy absorbing properties that help to eliminate stress points.

3M VHB Acrylic Adhesives have been used by engineers throughout the world in bold commercial applications including bonding architectural panelling and even aircraft construction.

Innovative Keyway Fixing System

Ultra 316 Stainless’s unique two-part wedge system has been designed to create the precise pressure required to activate the 3M VHB adhesive to its full potential. Both wedges are made from UV stabilised PVC to yield superior durability over time. Unlike screw-clamp or riveted systems, Ultra 316 Stainless uses innovative technology that provides clear spacing between the stainless steel mesh and aluminium frame in order to eliminate the opportunity for galvanic corrosion, which occurs when dissimilar metals contact.

Sleek Aluminium Frame

Ultra 316 Stainless’s extruded aluminium frame system is crafted to deliver a lightweight solution without compromising on strength. The frame features gold accredited Interpon™ powdercoating that delivers a durable finish in a versatile range of colours including the latest Colorbond™ colours. Solid aluminium stakes are used to fortify each corner join, providing Ultra 316 Stainless with steadfast strength.

Performance

Ultra 316 Stainless’s effortless elegance is surpassed only by its enviable strength. Our products are continually independently tested as a statement of our unwavering commitment to excellence. The Australian Standards stipulate a range of scientific tests that a security product must pass in order to remain in its class.

Ultra 316 Stainless consistently surpasses these standards:

Knife Shear Test (AS5039 – 2008)

Impact Test (AS5039 – 2008)

Anti-Jemmy Test (AS5039 – 2008)

Pull Test (AS5039 – 2008)

Cyclone Screen Test (2010: AS/NZS1170.2)

10,000 Hour Salt Spray Tests (AAMA2605-05 Section 7.8.2)

Aluminium Frame Tests
(AS/NZS1866:1997 & AS3715 – 2002) 60603 T5 powdercoated to a minimum thickness of 60um

Stainless Mesh Tests
(AS3175-2002, AAMA2603-05, AAMA2605-05, AS2331/ISO2360, ASTM D2794, AS3715, ISO1519, JIS Z2241, ASTM E1086)

Independently tested for the ultimate peace of mind.

Our most recent Australian Standards tests were independently performed by scientists from Curtin University in Western Australia, AZUMA Design and Testing in Sydney and ASSA ABLOY in Brisbane.

“The mesh used in Ultra 316 Stainless is always one of the best performing woven products.”
-Azuma Design and Testing.

“Most doors tested do not pass this first [Impact] test, but Ultra 316 Stainless came through with flying colours.”
-Azuma Design and Testing.

In all cases, Ultra 316 Stainless security doors and window screens passed all AS tests with flying colours. The Australian Standards require the following tests to be performed on one screen in the following order:

Impact Test

The Impact Test is designed to simulate a physical attack on a screen. To perform this test, a large pendulum weight is used to generate 100j of impact energy at a specified point. In order to pass this AS test, the door or window screen must withstand a series of five impacts.

Jemmy Test

The Jemmy Test involves wedging a lever between the security door lock and hinge and the door frame to which the security screen is mounted. A mechanical winch is used in an attempt to pry the door open. In order to pass the Jemmy Test, the security door must remain securely closed. Ultra 316 Stainless’s security doors and windows passed this AS test with ease.

Pull Test

When testing type 3 products, such as Ultra 316 Stainless, a pull test can only be carried out if a sufficient gap is achieved following the Jemmy Test. If no gap is formed, there is nowhere to mount the Pull Test bracket, or hold onto in a real scenario. Because Ultra 316 Stainless products performed so well in each preceding test, the Pull Test could not be carried out and Ultra 316 Stainless’s security doors and windows automatically passed.

Knife Shear Test

As its name suggests, the Knife Shear Test is designed to test the strength of the security mesh. The Knife Shear Test involves applying mechanical force with a heavy duty knife to the security mesh being tested. This is carried out three times with a new blade for each. In order to pass the Knife Shear Test, the mesh must not allow the blade to make an incision greater than 150mm.
