Security Grilles for Doors and Windows
In an age dominated by technology, it’s perhaps surprising that security grilles for doors and windows remain so popular. Our customers have given us a number of reasons why they prefer a physical deterrent, rather than depending solely on alarms or CCTV systems:
- With security grilles there’s no worrying about having a monitoring company on board.
- If your alarm goes off, you’re still dependent on the police arriving fast, whilst grilles are a solid, immovable object.
- No false alarms.
- No ongoing maintenance – so long as you have them fitted professionally.
Commercial Security Grilles for Doors and Windows
The majority of commercial burglaries, or incidents of vandalism choose windows as their access points. The security grille provides an ideal solution to this problem. They come in a variety of security fittings, and can be installed on doors and windows. 1st Choice Security Systems engineers provide a FREE security audit, which will pinpoint all areas of vulnerability requiring secure systems to keep premises, equipment and employees safe.
Retractable Security Grilles for Residential Properties
Whilst the traditional use of security grilles has been in the industrial and commercial sectors, they are now being adopted by homeowners. This is due, in part, to the evolution in their design. Grilles are now available in a range of colours, patterning and finishes. Most residential grilles are fixed inside the window and are fully retractable.
The retractable grille is mounted in a frame that sits inside your window. When not in use they can be slid or folded out of sight behind curtains. When required, they are secured with the use of a single key which locks them in place at a number of different points. Windows can be kept open, when the grilles are in place, as it’s impossible to gain entry once they are locked.
Door and Window Grilles as Part of Your Security System
Having good-looking security grilles in place to strengthen your vulnerable access points provides great peace of mind. 1st Choice would advise, however, that they’re supplemented with CCTV cameras and an intruder alarm system. CCTV will provide hard evidence of any attempted entry to your premises, and an alarm will ensure that business or home owners are alerted to intruders.
External Security Grilles
The external security grill is normally used by retail store owners wishing to protect their windows from breakages. The grilles are pulled into place when the shop is closed and cover the entire frontage. In this case the security function is more important than the aesthetics, so the finish tends to be a uniform grey or brown.
