For additional protection to your home or business premise against theft and break-ins, security grilles are a great choice. You should, however, take certain considerations when deciding whether or not to install them and which type would be best suited for you. Internal retractable grilles may be fitted behind French doors and windows. They are often more discreet compared to the external security shutters which are often heavy and are typically preferred for commercial properties such as shops. The main types of security grilles are Security Gates, Grille guards, Collapsible window grilles, fixed security grilles, fixed window bars and collapsible door grilles. Let’s take a look at each of these security grille types and how they are able to provide security to your property: 1. Security Gates These are meant for installation and use on the external areas of a property to provide an extra layer of security to the property. They are also meant to prevent any access that’s unauthorized from the rear of the properties on which they are installed. Because we often do not give much thought to the rear areas of our properties since we rarely use them, it’s a great idea to have one installed on your property so that no one can access your property from behind where you won’t easily be able to notice them. 2. Grille Guards Grille guards are installed around certain home equipment to protect them from theft or weather elements. They can be installed around CCTV camera and other such external equipment. Therefore, they are great for preventing vandalism and the effects of weather elements like storms and heavy rainfall. They’re also a choice for those who have installed delicate equipment on the exterior of their homes or business property which can be vandalized by thugs. 3. Collapsible Window and Door Grilles Sliding grilles that slid wither externally or internally are installed to offer physical and visual security against attacks by the intruder. For the fact that they can be folded back in a similar way to curtains, and usually come in a wide range of colours, the collapsible window and door security grilles can be used for their aesthetic value. They, therefore, provide not only security but also make the property have a beautiful look. They can also be customized to meet your personal tastes depending on the existing colour and style of your property. Due to their collapsible nature, they provide robust security whenever it’s needed. They give the option of being unobtrusive as may be needed. 4. Fixed Security Grilles These security grilles are often made to suit fixing on windows for the provision of security to the windows. However, just like the collapsible door and window security grilles, they’re also able to add aesthetic value to a property. Depending on the colour and style of your home, you can ask for the customization of your own fixed security grille to suit the style of your home. They prevent any intruders from getting access to your property through the windows. 5. Fixed Window Bars Fixed window bars are another useful security solution for protecting a property. They’re often re-enforced over windows to prevent intruders from accessing a property through the windows. Fixed window bars can also be customized to the preferred style so that they complement the look of your interiors and exteriors. Conclusion If you’re looking for a security solution with grilles, you can find the one that most suits your needs from the list above. Majority of them can be made to complement your property. So, just ask for one that will best suit the look of your home and complement it so that its aesthetic value also increases.
