5 Situations Burglar Guard Bars Are The Perfect Security Choice

Window burglar guards are often seen as the least interesting of all the types of security on offer. However, there are many situations where burglar guards deserve a second look. Their benefits may be the answer to the question of how to make a home or office safer.  We’ll look at five of these to see why Burglar Guard bars are the ideal window protection from crime.


1. Crime has increased but you don’t have the budget for expensive security

Home and office burglaries can spike for a number of reasons. Sometimes its because the neighbouring areas have tightened up on security, forcing criminal gangs to find easier targets. Sometimes its because criminals have discovered that homes or offices in your neighbourhood don’t have much security and they hit the area while they can.

Whatever is driving the rise in break-ins, it can be an expensive exercise to secure the whole building quickly. This is where products like Trellidor Burglar Guard come into their own. These burglar bars are very reasonably priced, yet they are custom-made to fit your windows. Because Burglar Guard is affordable, all your unsecured windows can be fitted with these burglar bars at the same time. Properly protected windows make homes and offices much less attractive as a target for criminals.



2. You’ve created your safe zone and now need to secure the rest of the building

Safe zones have become popular because they give you peace of mind, especially at night. It provides a well-secured safe space to wait out a violent attack on your home or office. It is very reassuring to know that your safe zone is there when you need it.

Over time, though, it makes sense to secure the rest of the building too. In the event of a break-in, the burglar proofing you choose has to be strong enough to delay criminals while you get to your safe zone. Burglar Guard bars fitted to the windows are strong enough to buy you time to get to your safe space and call for help.


3. The ground floor is protected but the upper floor needs burglar guards

It may seem logical to fit burglar guards and security gates to the ground floor doors and windows and leave upper floors unprotected. But many people have learned the hard way that ground floor security is not enough. 

Determined burglars and home invaders will always find a way to get inside, even if windows look too high and small for them to get through. Burglar Guard is a cost-effective way of protecting windows on the upper floors of homes, apartments, and office blocks. 


4. Your building extension or alteration is complete and requires security

Security is often an afterthought during the exciting building phase of an alteration or extension. Once the building it is complete, it is easier to see how vulnerable its open windows (or even closed windows) are to a break-in. 

One of the benefits of Burglar Guard is that it’s an easy way of securing the new part of the building. A Trellidor consultant will measure up and give you a quote in 24 hours. The installation is professionally done by trained technicians who will ensure that your new building isn’t damaged and is left clean and tidy.

You can even choose your own Burglar Guard design as there are three patterns to choose from. Here are the options:

  • Single trellis pattern
  • Double trellis pattern which matches Trellidor Traditional Retractable security gates
  • Flat strengthening bar which can be installed horizontally or vertically



5. You’re in a low crime area but feel nervous without security measures 

Not all homes are in high crime areas. But the constant talk of robberies and break-ins can make us nervous. So even if you’re in suburb or development where there isn’t much crime, you may want to secure windows and doors. Burglar bars on windows and security gates at doors make us feel safer at home. They also send the message to criminals that your home is not an easy target.

In these situations, you do not need the most expensive burglar proofing. Burglar bar designs like Burglar Guard will be more than enough to protect your windows from any attempt to break into your home.
