Trellidor GriffinGuard is usually fitted alongside a door or window to provide protection from intruders, but it does so much more than that. Its other uses range from internal climate control to keeping monkeys out of your home, making it a cost-effective addition to any home. Here are more ideas for using these beautiful screens.
Block out insects and animals with Trellidor Clear Guard
Clear Guard is made from a strong woven stainless steel mesh panel and it has a full, four-sided aluminium frame. The mesh screen panel is a finely woven, coated stainless steel. It is closely woven enough to block out insects and animals like snakes and large spiders.
In many places in South Africa, these are a nuisance. For example, homes near water are often plagued by mosquitoes and sometimes these are the kind that can lead to malaria. In other parts of the country, snakes make their way into homes chasing rats or geckoes. For most people, snakes are fine outside but not inside one’s home.
Fit Clear Guard screens to all doors and windows and these issues will never be a problem. The mesh will stop the wildlife from coming in when windows and doors are left open to catch a breeze in summer or simply to enjoy the sights and sounds of the outdoors.
It’s a great idea to get mesh screens like these installed around a patio. This outdoor entertainment space can be enjoyed without the bother of insects or animals of any type or having to light citronella candles and other methods of keeping mosquitoes and flies away.
Control temperatures inside your home
Clear Guard mesh screens filter out the sun’s harsh UV rays and blocks out some of the heat. This is an easy way of reducing temperatures inside your home in summer. The mesh allows some air to flow inside, which helps to cool rooms down.
If you do not have air conditioning in your home and fans are not enough to reduce the heat, then leave your doors and windows open knowing you are protected by your Clear Guard screens on the doors and windows.
Create privacy from neighbours and passers-by
Mesh door and window screens have an interesting effect on vision: they are see-through when you’re inside your home looking out, but people outside cannot see in as clearly. This is a very useful benefit when you open up your curtains or blinds during the day.
When fitted to doors, Clear Guard has an added advantage for dog owners that are tired of opening and closing doors when their dogs alert them to a distraction outside. With the door open and the mesh screen closed, dogs can sit at the front door and watch passing traffic all day.
Avoid small-time theft through open doors or windows
Even in guarded, gated complexes, petty theft occurs. It could be adventurous youngsters or casual workers or temporary visitors. GriffinGuard is a simple way of preventing this. It stops people reaching in through a window to take the cell phone left on a side table or a laptop conveniently placed on a kitchen counter.
Never have to clean up mess left by monkeys or baboons again
GriffinGuard does not only block out insects and snakes. It also prevents monkeys or baboons from getting into your home and creating havoc.
This is a relief to anyone that has returned home after these primates have got into the home and raided the fruit bowl. The mess they leave is unbelievable. It can also be quite scary to confront a monkey or baboon that feels trapped when you unexpectedly walk into the room while they’re there.
See-through mesh screens like Clear Guard are a humane way of solving this problem. They keep the animals out so that you never have to worry about them again.
Trellidor GriffinGuard provides protection too
Even if GriffinGuard units are fitted for reasons other than security, it is good to know that these transparent screens are suitable for all security risk locations. In-house attack tests using the tools used on all Trellidor products show that Trellidor Clear Guard security screens are comparable to Trellidor Retractable security gates in terms of strength.
In terms of price, Trellidor GriffinGuard is lower in price than Trellidor Security Screens, even though it looks similar. GriffinGuard mesh screens are a high-end product with a quality finish and perfect for limited budgets.
Like all Trellidor security barriers, Trellidor Clear Guard is custom-made to fit the opening and its specific requirements, so there is no standard price. Trellidor security barriers are available through authorised Trellidor franchises countrywide and they will gladly measure the openings in your home and give you a quotation.
