Trellidor Louvre Shutters ideal for estate living


Trellidor franchises throughout South Africa are being kept busy with requests from homeowners in housing estates for quotes on the newly launched Trellidor Louvre Shutters.

It is proving to be a winner for several reasons. The main attraction is that it doesn’t look like a security barrier. It is also very appealing because it is attractive from street view as well as inside the home.

Complies with estate style rules

Housing estates and cluster homes generally have strict rules about the type of physical security permitted in estate homes. Quite often, they exclude burglar bars and security gates. This is intended to preserve the homogenous look of the carefully chosen home designs.

The rules are also designed to keep security measures to the perimeter of each estate, instead of inside each home. This reinforces the image of the estate being secure and promotes the safe lifestyle on offer.

Estates not immune to crime

The latest SAPS crime statistics show that house robbery in South Africa has increased annually since 2014. Robbery is when people are confronted in their homes by criminals, and are victims of theft.

Anecdotal evidence from the Trellidor network shows that this is happening in secure estates as well as free standing homes. Many such crimes are not reported because people have lost faith in the police’s ability to act. But service providers find out about these crimes when called in to secure homes after a robbery.

We’ve had situations where estate homes have been robbed and the homeowners have installed security barriers without consulting the Body Corporate or Homeowners Association. They would rather deal with the consequences of ignoring the home design rules that be unprotected in their own homes.

The solution is to find security products that don’t spoil the unique design of the homes in an estate. There are security products that do an excellent job of protecting people and possessions without spoiling the ‘look’ of the home.

Security barrier styles ideal for estates

Trellidor has designed several product ranges that do not look like the conventional security barriers that are banned by estates. These more attractive barriers are discreet and strong without looking ugly.

These security barrier designs include Trellidor Clear Guard, Trellidor Poly Guard and Trellidor Louvre Shutters.

Clear Guard is popular in wildlife estates because you can see right through it and enjoy the bush view. It also keeps out mosquitoes, snakes, monkeys and baboons.

Trellidor Poly Guard is also see-through and hardly noticeable once installed. It is an effective deterrent against primates as well as people looking for small items to steal. It consists of Polycarbonate strips inside a neat aluminium four-sided frame. 

Our Louvre Shutters is currently drawing the most attention, though, because it has the strength expected of a Trellidor security barrier plus a number of other benefits including its eye-catching, contemporary design.

These are aluminium louvre shutters with in-built strengthening feature. They are further strengthened by a patented Trellidor locking system.

They are beautiful shutters that add an element of style to any home. The fact that they provide security too makes them an really attractive as well as cost-effective option. They are custom-made by Trellidor for doors, windows, patios and other areas within your home.

The benefits of Trellidor Louvre Shutterss:

  • Controls light penetration and airflow into the room by tilting the louvres.
  • Allows you to alter the level of privacy according to needs by opening and closing the louvres.
  • Blocks out severe sunlight while still having some louvres open for fresh air.
  • Replaces curtains, blinds and burglar bars in one good-looking product.
