A Trellidor Durban West customer says that she has
Trellidor to thank for preventing a break-in at her home. Her Trellidor
Retractable security gate put up such resistance that it took too long for
the robbers to break through and they were caught in the act, causing them to
flee without stealing anything. Her Trellidor
Retractable gate protecting her front door was damaged but had done its job
“The customer says that she knows nothing is impenetrable
but believes that her decision to go with Trellidor was the right one,” said
Jit Dosanjh, the Trellidor Sales Consultant that had sold her the gate. He was
also on the scene early the next morning to assist with a temporary gate and to
place an order for a permanent replacement for the damaged gate.
The homeowner had returned home at about 7.00 p.m. on the
night of the attempted robbery to find her dogs outside her gate. This was unusual and she knew immediately
that there was a problem. She realised
that her driveway gate was off its track and had been forced open. Then she saw a car with four men in it, trying
to get out of her driveway, which was now blocked by her car. They threatened her with a gun and she
reversed out to let the car squeeze past her vehicle.
She found that the robbers had tried to get through the
security gate’s lock and failed. They
had used a crowbar to try to force the gate out of the doorway, damaging both
the door and the security gate. The gate
put up such resistance that it all took too long and the robbers were caught in
the act when the homeowner came home.
She is very grateful that she had installed a Trellidor product and has told her
neighbours this. Some of them have since
ordered Trellidor products from Jit to protect their own homes.
One of these neighbours posted a message about the
incident on Facebook and he pointed out three security issues in this
robbery. One, the house was dark with no
lights left on, alerting the robbers to the fact that it was empty; two, the
gate had been derailed in order for the robbers to drive in, making a case for
safety brackets to be installed on driveway gates; and three, the robbers made
a hasty getaway because they saw their car trapped in the driveway by the
Lights, safety gates protected by anti-tamper brackets
and layers of protection including good
quality physical security should be part of everyone’s home safety
measures, says Jit. “We recommend that
