Secure virtually any staircase with Trellidor roller shutters

How to create a safe zone with roller shutters

If you have a staircase that seems impossible to secure because there are no walls to support a security door, call in your local Trellidor franchise. We’ve had a number of instances where home owners have wanted to create a safe zone but have been told it can’t be done. The most recent was in Kenya, where Trellidor franchise owner Mick Svinos was able to offer his client the perfect solution in a Trellidor Rollerstyle shutter.

Horizontal roller shutter a practical solution

Mick explains: “We have a client who has suffered numerous armed burglaries and we had previously installed a Trellidor Rollerstyle shutter in the main house.

Her son was moving back into the guest cottage within the grounds, but unfortunately due to the layout of the stairs it was just not practical for any regular security gates. So we showed our client photos of a similar installation done in South Africa. One of our colleagues there had installed a manual Trellidor Rollerstyle shutter, laid flat at the top of the stairs.

Our client confirmed that is exactly what they were after and they were delighted with the final installation.”

The Trellidor roller shutters glides open and closed on a horizontal plane, creating a safe zone even though there are no walls here.
