Boss Security Screens and TAPCO agree to jointly develop security screen market in Las Vegas.
TAPCO manufacturers security hardened screens for windows and doors. The screens and the mounting frames are engineered to prevent break-ins as well damage and injury from projectiles during severe weather.
“Las Vegas is an ideal market for security screens,” says James Kerr, founder and President of Boss Security Screens. “We are excited to partner with a company like TAPCO that has over 50 years experience manufacturing screens.”
Security screens were have become increasingly popular after the massive damage caused by Katrina as homeowners looked for innovative ways to stay safe during extreme weather.
TAPCO was the first to develop a storm screen that was strong enough to withstand high velocity objects like branches and 2x4 boards. Their security screen for windows includes an a fortified steel meshed in housed in a building-grade aluminum frame, which is then mounted over an existing window.
The screens are hinged so occupants can egress in the event of a fire. The latch to open the screen is a patented 2 point locking system that is ADA compliant and designed to be operated by persons of all ages and physical abilities.
Security doors use the same steel mesh and installed in conventional doors frames. TAPCO also offers security screens for sliding patio doors and pet doors.
Because each screen is custom made, the frames can be any shape and any color to match the building’s features.

“I would like to see this technology become more accessible to everyone - if only for the peace of mind,” says Kerr. “The best defense starts with keepings the bad guys out.”
