The New GriffinGuard – Features, Benefits & More

GriffinGuard is an affordable framed mesh screen custom-made by Trellidor and fitted to doors and windows. It is mainly used to keep insects, animals like monkeys, and human intruders out of a home but it has many features and benefits to explore.


See-through security

It’s annoying that we have to secure ourselves at home because of high crime rates, especially if we have good views that we’d like to enjoy without looking through burglar bars. GriffinGuard security screens are a welcome solution because the mesh panel is see-through. The whole outside view is visible through the screen, so you don’t have to feel hemmed in by your security barriers if you have GriffinGuard on your doors and windows.


Affordable security screens

Trellidor engineers have designed GriffinGuard security screens to be strong and affordable. Even though this product is well priced, you are not missing out on protection from intruders. It is a sturdy security screen that will keep you safe from many threats. All you have to do is make sure your GriffinGuard security screens are closed and locked, especially if you like to leave your doors and windows open for fresh air. 


Unobtrusive protection

Apart from being see-through, GriffinGuard is also a great design that fits seamlessly into any home. It has a neat aluminium frame with black handles and hinges to blend in with the mesh screen. The major benefit of this streamlined look is that it not seen as burglar proofing. This often makes GriffinGuard acceptable for homes in enclosed communities that have a specific design signature. They use this product to keep out monkeys, snakes, baboons, mosquitoes, and other hazards.


Internal climate benefits

A popular feature of GriffinGuard is that the mesh screen offers internal climate benefits. The woven mesh panel allows air to flow inside, but it blocks out strong winds. It also filters out the sun’s harsh UV rays, helping to moderate internal temperatures. Few other form of burglar proofing can boast a benefit like this, and it makes security screens a multi-purpose, cost-effective investment.


Strong security screen

GriffinGuard is frequently installed for features such as keeping wildlife out of homes or preventing mosquitoes from getting inside and annoying people. Or just to prevent the petty theft that sometimes happens in enclosed communities. But it is good to know that these security screens also provide protection from criminals because the mesh is robust enough to resist an attack. Most GriffinGuard screens are lockable using strong Trellidor locks, except for the fixed screen format sometimes chosen for windows as these do not open.

Customised GriffinGuard features

Every GriffinGuard door and window unit is custom-made to fit the opening. But there are other ways that they can be customised to customer preferences. For example, the frame can be powder coated in a specific colour. There is a choice of seven popular colours, but special colours are an option. Then if you have more than one GriffinGuard unit, you can choose random keys or you can have them keyed alike (same key for all units).


Corrosion resistant security screens

Those that live at the coast will be pleased to know that the Trellidor powder coating system includes a pre-treatment process that enhances the corrosion and UV resistance of all security barriers manufactured at the factory. This increases the lifespan of the barrier by retaining its quality finish.
