Reasons Why Trellidor Retractable Security Gate is Still a Winner

Trellidor Retractable security gates are still our most popular protection for doors and windows.

Here are some good reasons why:

Let the outdoors in

It may look more traditional alongside our new ranges, but Trellidor Retractable is still one of the most practical sliding security gates on the market. 

One often cited reason is that when your doors and windows are open and the retractable security barriers are closed and locked, you can still enjoy the outdoors.  Sun, light and air flow inside freely so you don’t feel hemmed in.  But you do feel protected from any dangers lurking in the garden.

Easy to use

Trellidor Retractable sliding security gates have been carefully designed to work easily.  You wouldn’t think that there could be any difference between one sliding security gate and the next, but some poorly constructed designs are difficult to open and close.  Sometimes they’re stiff to open and bulky when stacked to the side.

The Trellidor design is specially made to open and close smoothly. It also stacks neatly to the side. 

As long as you follow a simple, regular maintenance program you won’t have any problems in this regard.  We put our gate components through a special anti-corrosion process, so our sliding security gates work well even at the coast.
