Don’t Let Home Invaders Catch You Off Guard

We’ve had several reports of spikes in home invasions from Trellidor franchises in urban areas around RSA recently. This sort of increase in crime, whether real or perceived, tends to make friends and neighbours panic about their safety.

It makes much more sense to take charge of your home security and boost it to make it more difficult for criminals to get into your home.Trellidor franchises have been helping people stay safe in their homes for over 40 years, so they are the right people to call in when you need to improve your security.

Here are their top tips for home safety:

1. Protect every outer door & all windows with the strongest burglar proofing on the market. By doing this, you’ll make it difficult for criminals to get inside your premises. They will have to break through several obstacles, from windows and doors to burglar bars and security gates. This takes time and a lot of effort, which criminals generally can’t afford.

2. Keep safety gates & burglar proofing closed and locked at all times. Lock them even when you’re home or in the office.It is easier to unlock them (and relock them) when you have to go out than to confront a violent criminal that has walked through an unlocked safety gate.

3. Set up a safe zone with Trellidor. It can be a life-saver in a crisis. A safe zone is an area in your house or office that is fully secured with burglar bars and safety gates. At home this is usually the bedroom area. It allows you to sleep peacefully at night, protected behind your burglar proofing. You’ll need a high quality safety gate in the passage or staircase and burglar proofing on all windows in the safe zone.

4. Ensure the burglar bars on at least one safe zone window can open in an emergency. Burglar bars that can open are very important in your safe zone. If there is a fire or if criminals get into another part of the house, you’ll be able to escape through this window. Trellidor has a number of different designs to choose from, including Trellidor Retractable sliding steel gates, Trellidor Rollerstyle shutters, Trellidor Louvre Shutters, and Trellidor Clear Guard security screens.
