The easiest way for home invaders to get inside a house or apartment is through an open entry door. The fact that they may get caught out by residents is no deterrent. So the best way of avoiding this frightening situation is to block the doorway with a security gate.
Trellidor offers a number of different designs to suit all types of home.
Trellidor Clear Guard security screens
Mesh Clear Guard screens are ideal for entry doors because they can be custom-made to suit the location.
The biggest selling points are that there are no bars cluttering up the outlook and the steel mesh insert is see-through, allowing good views of anyone approaching the house.
The mesh screen helps keep out monkeys, which are a huge problem in some areas. This works equally well in keeping out insects like mosquitoes and flies.
The mesh allows some airflow, which is essential on hot summer days. It also assists with internal temperature control by blocking out the sun’s UV rays.
Trellidor Clear Guard has an aluminium frame. This can be powder coated to blend in with the home’s colour palette.
In keeping with current decor trends, the most popular colours at the moment are white, matt bronze and matt black.
Trellidor Retractable security gates
This is still one of the most popular designs in front door security gates.
Good quality trellis-style gates will give you many years of protection if properly maintained. This makes them cost effective and gives you peace of mind.
Trellidor Retractable gates stack neatly to the side, opening up the entrance when you need to move furniture in or out.
Trellidor fits these gates with patented locking systems that perform extremely well under attack tests.
You only need a single key inserted in one key hole to engage multiple locking points inside the lock stile, making it difficult for criminals to know where to attack the gate.
Trellidor Retractable gates are a little more cluttered that designs like Trellidor Clear Guard. But their visibility is an advantage because they let would-be home invaders know that they won’t easily gain access to your home.
Like all Trellidor barriers, these gates are custom-made for best fit and improved strength under attack.
They can be powder coated to your specifications, but like Trellidor Clear Guard, are most commonly ordered in white, matt black or matt bronze.
Rollerstyle roller shutters
Aluminium roller shutters are gaining ground as entry door protection. Aluminium isn’t as noisy as steel, so it’s easier to live with indoors.
Homeowners frequently choose a Trellidor Rollerstyle shutter and an internal installation if they’re often away from home. The shutters ensure that home invaders are blocked out as effectively as possible.
People that love the look of their carefully chosen front door, enjoy the fact that the shutter rolls up completely to reveal the feature door.
The shutter is hidden inside a neat, compact box and no bottom track is required, so there is no tripping hazard on the floor.
Roller shutters can be fully automated and controlled using either a hand-held key chain remote or a wall-mounted panel.
Automation can be linked into a central control system if there is one.
Trellidor offers alternatives to electricity-driven motors, such as a solar powered motor and battery back-up.
