Advances in technology have provided us with the latest and most advanced sensory system options to protect our homes. However, they have little to offer in terms of a physical barricade. Where the loudest electronic alarm can sound and the quickest notification can be sent to a home security call center, the opportunity remains for a determined burglar or home invader to carry out his/her intentions in the delay provided. Whether used alone or in addition to an already established system, security grilles for windows are the ideal solution to keeping intruders at bay.
It’s no secret that intruders typically utilize windows or doors to gain access to another’s property. Window smashing is typical, and property damages, in addition to items stolen, can be astronomical in value. Security grilles prevent the physical ability to reach the otherwise breakable entry to your home. While window bars may also be manipulated into removal, the process is quite lengthy and the time allotted is likely to deter a potential intruder. In fact, though security grilles were always customarily fitted to the outside of the window, a trend has arisen wherein they can be fitted to the interior of your home, forcing a potential intruder to first smash glass, followed by the removal of the window bars in the midst of shattered pieces. The effort required is unwelcoming and undesirable to even the most elite intruder.
Even the most advanced alarm systems still allow intruders a “window” of possibility wherein they are able to execute their intended crime prior to encountering any type of repercussion. The best camera systems will capture your criminal’s activity, but the search for him in the days following is strenuous, aggravating, and, all too often, uneventful. With the increase in window bar usage, gone are the days when business owners lost sleep over whether or not their store is properly guarded and worrying about whether or not a stranger may be tempted to enter their place of establishment and take items for their own. Security grilles dually deter would-be intruders while providing you with a sense of comfort and relief.
As a plus, window bars, which were once an unappealing addition to one’s property, have since become customizable and even acceptable forms of decoration over the years. The grilles, which vary in strength, come in numerous designs and colors to suit your property’s needs and overall appearance. Window bars are durable and require little to no maintenance over time. With no concern required as to the replacement of batteries and/or the failure of electricity, security grilles remain an undeniably reliable source of security for your home.
