Protect an open front door from home invaders with a reliable security barrier like Trellidor Retractable security gates
One of the trends
in residential robbery is for perpetrators to attack when people are
at home, between 5.00 p.m. and 9.00 p.m. at night and between 5.00
a.m. and 9.00 a.m. in the morning. This is when we drop our guard in
terms of security and robbers walk right in without any hindrance.
With residential robbery on the increase in RSA and probably
elsewhere too, now is a good time to secure one of their most common
points of entry: the frontdoor.
Why is the frontdoor so vulnerable? Mainly because many of us leave it open or
unlocked once we arrive home simply due to lack of vigilance. Or
because we’ve let the dog out and are waiting for him to come back
inside. This is when robbers strike. One of the best solutions is
to install a high quality security barrier.
Here are some
guidelines on how to go about it.
product to suit your home and lifestyle
It’s no good
choosing a security barrier you aren’t going to use properly. If
the barrier suits your lifestyle you’ll be far more inclined to use
it. Trellis-style sliding gates like Trellidor Retractable, for example, are a good choice if you like to leave
your doors open when you’re home. You can see what’s happening
outside; they’re strong enough to resist attack and they allow in
fresh air and light.
They can be
custom-designed to protect just about any feature around your front
door such as plaster bands or larger than usual door handles that
make a bold statement.
Trellidor Clear Guard security screens provide excellent protection without
looking too obvious. They can be designed to match almost any door
style, from French doors to bi-folds, sliding doors or hinged doors,
single or double. They have the added benefits of blocking out
insects, monkeys, baboons and snakes as well as excessive heat.
Just remember to
remove the keys from your security door lock as well as your front
door lock and keep them out of reach of burglars. A good place to
store them is on hooks in your safezone. It may seem a nuisance at first, having to fetch keys when
you need to use them, but it’s a good long term habit to develop.
Lock down with
roller shutters are becoming increasingly popular as front door
security because once closed, they provide a formidable obstacle to
intruders. They can be fitted into tight spaces as they don’t
require any floor space plus the side channels are narrow and can be
recessed into the walls.
Trellidor Rollerstyle has a new range of Trellidor motors to suit
requirements. There is a super-fast motor that operates 30% quicker
than anything else on the market, making it highly desirable during
emergencies. There are also battery back-up, manual override and
solar powered options as well as a range of safety sensors to help
