Can you see which side has the clear security? Clear Guard is barely visible on the left side.
Clear security is very appealing for homeowners that want to be safe without cluttering up their windows and doors. But in terms of personal safety and product strength, it’s important to be sure of what you’re buying. We give you some points to consider.
Ask yourself why you want clear security? There are many valid reasons, from the rules of a housing estate that preclude visible security barriers to just not wanting a reminder of why security is necessary.
It’s also important to decide where you want to install clear security. There is a school of thought that says visible security is a deterrent to potential house breakers, so consider installing burglar proofing to windows and security gates to doors that can be seen by passersby in the road. If your home looks tricky to get into, the thief may decide to choose one that appears to be an easier break-in target.
You can then opt for clear security in other areas where your outlook is important, such as windows looking out onto a secluded garden and doors that open onto your entertainment area.
If you have other layers of security such as movement sensor beams, then clear security on windows and doors visible from the street is a good choice. Not only will you improve your home’s street-appeal, but the beams will help prevent anyone from getting up to the house to take a closer look.
Clear security definitely has its place. It’s ideal for homes with lovely views that you don’t want to clutter up with burglar proofing or security gates.
There are a few factors that you need to question when choosing your clear security product:
Trellidor offer two product ranges that fall into the ‘clear security’ category:
These shutters fall into the ‘clear security’ category because when you don’t want to see them, they roll up into their box, completely out of sight. When you need them to help keep you safe, or to shut up the house at night or when you’re away, simply roll them down. They are then a highly visible deterrent to house breakers.
What makes this product ‘clear security’ is that you can see right through the tightly woven stainless steel mesh screen, giving you unobstructed views of the exterior. Although they’re see-through, these screens perform extremely well in attack tests.
Trellidor Clear Guard security screens are fully framed for strength. They are fixed into the substrate surrounding the window or door with customised tamper-proof fixings, so are able to resist a concerted attack.
This product has other benefits that appeal to South Africans, such as screening out the sun’s UV rays and helping to control internal temperatures, and providing an effective barrier that keeps out problems such as mosquitoes and monkeys.
