How to make security screens work for your veranda
27 March 2012
In our grandmother’s day fly screens were commonly found on doors and windows, to keep out flies and other insects like mosquitoes, especially in the vicinity of horses. Fly screens are still available today, but an even more useful product has found its way onto our shores: security screens for windows and doors that keep out insects but are engineered to act as a robust security gates and burglar guards too.
This new technology is a first for South Africa, and was introduced by Trellidor. The range is called Trellidor Clear Guard and although its ideal as a home security system, it works equally well in a commercial setting too.
We have some ideas on how to use them on your veranda:
Keep out pests without losing the view
Stack them away when you don't need them
Secure your corner verandah
Extend the months you can use your veranda
Not all coastal towns have weather as balmy as that of Durban, where people can sit outdoors most of the year. Even in KZN, however, there are days when it’s just too windy to sit outside and survey the sea. Trellidor Clear Guard screen doors can extend the life of your patio. When closed, the mesh screens help to keep out wind, dust and sand and also reduce the glare. At night these home security doors can be locked to control access to your patio and protect your furniture from theft.
