BANK SECURITY IN AUSTRALIA​

BANKS ARE HIGH PROFILE TARGETS​

Bank robbery does still occur
The total recorded number of robbery victims attacked in any location in Australia has more than doubled since 1993 (when national crime statistics were first collated), with similar rates of increase in both armed and unarmed robbery (ABS 2002b). Most people will think of bank hold ups when a robbery is mentioned and there is good reason for that with the highest numbers recorded in the late 1990’s. Of the 808 incidents reported since 1998 the number of offenders involved in the hold-up more than half (55 per cent) were committed by lone offenders, about 25 per cent by pairs and around 20 per cent by three or more robbers (that is, gangs) Believe it or not even as recent as 2001 there were over 458 people victimised in a bank. So while there has been a decline in the last 30 years there are still incidents that occur.

Armed bank robbery
For some of the more serious bank robbery attempts there has been a firearm involved and the type has varied over the years. Pistols were used more often than longarms (rifles and shotguns) in Australian bank hold-ups in the early to mid-1980s, but this reversed in the later 1980s. Between 1998 and 2002, pistols were once again used in the majority (68 per cent) of the bank holdups involving firearms which was similar to other forms of crime using guns.

Bullet resistant security screen options
Our locally manufactured bank security screens can be made in bullet resistant designs to withstand multi-shot assaults, absorbing the total impact energy without spalling, physical attacks and gunfire from weapons ranging from 9mm handguns to high powered rifles. 

WHY POLYCARBONATE IS THE BEST BANK SECURITY SCREEN MATERIAL TO USE​

POLYCARBONATE IS A SECURITY SCREEN MATERIAL THAT IS 250 TIMES STRONGER THAN GLASS​

The strongest bank security screens available
We only produce bank security screens out of high impact polycarbonate substrate which is up to 250 times tougher than glass and virtually unbreakable. Polycarbonate is the ideal material to be used for bank security screens as it can be cut and shaped to specific sizes to suit any type of banking environment.

We can custom design your bank security screen to sit on top of an existing counter space from the countertop to the ceiling including a frame and surround. Our Australian design team can work with your interior designer to ensure everything compliments the existing space and corporate guidelines.

We have a range of designs that can enable voice communication, paperwork retrieval or a combination of these to suit your intended application and perceived security risk. We also have options available in bullet resistant designs for high levels of protection.

WHAT IS A BANK SECURITY SCREEN MADE OUT OF?

BEWARE OF CHEAP MATERIALS LIKE PLASTIC OR ACRYLIC, WE ONLY USE POLYCARBONATE SUBSTRATE

Polycarbonate

250 times tougher than glass & virtually unbreakable
We only produce bank security screens out of high impact polycarbonate substrate which is up to 250 times tougher than glass and virtually unbreakable. Polycarbonate will not shatter and can withstand high velocity impacts from objects or people. Apart from being a much stronger material, polycarbonate is actually lighter than glass which makes it easier to be used for anti jump barrier applications from design to installation. There other material alternatives that are available on the market include acrylic which is cheaper than polycarbonate, sometimes by 30%.

Beware of using plastics
Although beware – while acrylic and polycarbonate are two of the most popular clear plastics they have very different benefits. Acrylic may look ‘shinier’ & might be cheaper to buy but it can crack or shatter under impact as it is a more rigid material. Even more important to consider when getting quotes is the fact that it is only about 10 times stronger than glass thus nowhere near as strong as polycarbonate. Another factor many people don’t consider is polycarbonate is highly resistant to chemicals such as petrol or acids which adds to its ability to provide protection from things other than objects.

Maximum protection
This is why for all our 
bank security screen variations we only use polycarbonate substrates to ensure you receive maximum protection for you & your staff with a material that will withstand most impacts while most likely not needing to be replaced in the case of an incident occurring. Our team can ensure the framework compliments your retail bank location with choices of custom made selections from stainless steel, steel or aluminium depending on the environment it is being installed into

“We chose to only supply the toughest materials like polycarbonate to ensure every location and its people receive the ultimate protection”
