Residential Security Windows Screen

Windows Screen Shades / September 28, 2022

What exactly is a security screen? We have been asked this on more than one occasion. Let me first clarify that security screens are not security bars, although they perform the same duty, security bars give a home or business an institutional appearance. Security screens on the other hand do not take away from the curb appeal that most people are seeking as well as feeling safe while at home or away.

Lets discuss the make up of a TAPCO, Inc security screen.


All series of TAPCO's sub-frames, main frames, flat bar, center bar, hinges even down to the latch housings we use on our SPR-Latches are all 6063-T5 extruded aluminum. Depending on which seriesyou choose determines the wall thickness of the frames. Most all of our screens have a wall thickness of .062 (1/16") we do offer a series with a wall thickness of .080 ( between 1/16" & 1/8"). Most homes would fall into the .062 range. All series of TAPCO screens come in standard colors of Mill Finish (unpainted), Bronze or White, special colors are available.


TAPCO, offers a variety of stainless steel wire, lets start with .012 Ga 30 x 30 mesh. This is a very fine wire mostly used in the filter business. .012 is the thickness of the wire, a little less than 1/64 of an inch. 30 x 30 mesh means that for every square inch you have 30 strands running horizontal and 30 strands running vertical again this is used mostly in the filter business and we do not advise having this wire painted.

.018 Ga 16 x 16: The wire thickness of this product is a little shy of insect screen found in most homes. Again 16 x 16 means 16 strands horizontal and 16 strands vertical per square inch. This wire can be painted if one doesn't mind the wire being a little wavy, by nature this wire is wavy anyway.

The .018.023.028 and .035 comes in a natural color or can be powder coated black, bronze or white.


We offer a .050 aluminum piano hinge and a stainless steel hinge 1/2 x 1/2, 3/4 x 3/4, 1 x 1. once again these can be powder coated to match the color of the main frames.


We use stainless steel barrel bolt latches, one on each side that requires both hands to operate or our patented SPR-LATCH that requires only one hand to operate.

Now back to security screens vs. security bars. Most windows today come double hung with a full screen allowing fresh air into the room or a full sunscreen to minimize the damaging rays of the sun. TAPCO Security screens are mounted directly to the window and thus appears that it belongs there. Security Bars on the other hand looks just like security bars i.e.. Out of place. Security screens also protect the whole window from vandals, burglars and flying debris, while security bars do not protect the glass or window thus creating maintenance cost to the home owner.
