Emergency situations like fire, flooding or a home invasion unfortunately do happen but we’re seldom prepared for it. An emergency home exit could save a life.
Emergency situations like fire, flooding or a home invasion unfortunately do happen but we’re seldom prepared for it. An emergency home exit could save a life. Here’s how to create one with Trellidor’s help.
An emergency home exit is a window in your home that is large enough to use to get out in a hurry if the doors are not an option. The designated window is fitted with burglar proofing that opens so that you can get through it easily.
In a perfect world, we’d have emergency home exits on all windows that open. Restricted budgets may mean this isn’t possible, so the next best option is to select one or two windows as your emergency home exits, and fit burglar proofing that opens to these.
This may mean replacing old, fixed burglar bars with security barriers that open up for an emergency escape. Trellidor will be able to powder coat the new burglar proofing to match the old units on other windows for seamless security.
The bathroom is a good choice for an emergency home exit strategy as it has running water and a toilet to use. Check that the window is big enough for an adult to squeeze through, and that there isn’t a big drop to the ground on the other side.
Once your emergency home exit window security barrier has been fitted, teach everyone how to use it, including children and their minder. They also need to understand that the window is for emergency situations only, not for game-playing.
Watch our emergency home exit video together so you can see how it’s done.
Windows are usually protected from a housebreaking by fixed security, but there are a number of burglar proofing options that can open when you need them to. Trellidor has three different designs to choose from:
All these designs are custom-made to fit your emergency home exit window.
