Shear Test


This test is where a shear machine which represents a pair of cutting pliers is applied to the mesh, to see how much damage they can do and whether the security product will fail to repel the burglar. Cutting pliers are the tool of choice for this test because they can be readily concealed.

Crimsafe® passes this test because the tightly woven infill material (mesh) can't be cut by large cutting pliers to begin with. Because there is no way for the pliers to get a hold on the Tensile Tuff ® mesh, the test is over before it begins.

Crimsafe® also passes the knife shear test.
