Why You Really Need These Aluminium Burglar Bars

Trellidor Cottage Guard aluminium burglar bars are in a class of their own. They deserve a second look when you’re deciding on what to fit to your windows to protect yourself from a robbery attempt.


Incredibly strong

Burglar guards come in all shapes and sizes and this can confuse your decision making process.  Trellidor believes that your main priority for a security grille should be strength. Whether it’s a door or window you are trying to defend, it must be strong enough to protect you from a potential break-in.

There are a number of ways of looking at burglar bars for windows to judge if they’re able to do the job you require of them. 


Here is a quick list of what to check in choosing burglar bars:


  • How are they made? Custom made is always going to be stronger than DIY because they’re made to fit the opening properly.
  • What are they made from? The material the burglar bars are made from may rust quickly, weakening the burglar guards. Or the material may be too flimsy to resist a kick from a well-aimed boot.
  • How are they installed? There are two issues here.  One is that fully framed burglar guards are usually stronger than semi-framed or no frame. The second is that professionally installed burglar bars fixed into the brick around the window is better than burglar bars screwed into a wooden window frame. When screwed into the frame, they are easily bashed out for easy access into the home.
  • What guarantees do they carry? Check out the fine print. Some burglar guard ranges carry incredible terms and conditions that ensure you’ll never get your money’s worth.
