(WFLX) - Security screens, made by Tapco in Tupelo, MS, are made with stainless steel on steroids.
"You got 12-weave this way, and 12-weave this way," says Wilford Roberts with Tapco.
Rated to stand up to a category 4 hurricane, we throw everything at it.
Already installed on a home, a neighbor is watching our test.
Aaron Reagan got burglar bars got on his windows after a recent break-in. A crow bar punched a hole in it, but the steel's so strong, you can't tear it a part. "That's pretty amazing!"
We take a 2x4, and shoot it at the screen at 50 feet per second. The window's still intact - didn't break or shatter or anything!
Tapco designed the screens, so a firefighter's rescue saw could cut through them. Therefore, the good guys get in while the bad guys stay out.
