5 Stylish Ways to Secure your Kitchen Windows
Kitchens are often the gathering point in homes, where family members chat and catch up or kids do their homework while meals are prepared. This is often from around 5pm in the evening or 6am in the morning when burglars know we’ve switched off alarms and opened doors to let the dogs out, leaving us vulnerable.
Instead of having to keep doors and windows locked at this time, secure them properly with burglar proofing and you’ll be able to leave them open and enjoy fresh air and the sights and sounds of the outdoors.
Here are some ideas used in real homes that show how to keep safe and secure in the heart of the home. There are loads of different Trellidor products to choose from, each with their own merits:
Trellidor Cottage Guard burglar bars are custom-made for kitchen windows so that they don’t obstruct the window handles. These burglar bars can be powder coated to co-ordinate with the colour of the windows, making them easy on the eye. This is one of the strongest burglar bar designs available and is fully framed.
Trellidor Burglar Guard is budget friendly but still strong enough to do its job. It is also custom-made to accommodate window hardware and is framed for strength. There are several styles including trellis-designs that blend in with Trellidor Retractable security gates.
Trellidor Clear Guard security screens are made to match your window style, so for example a sliding security screen will slide along in its own track next to a sliding aluminium glass window. You can see right through the screen, which allows in some airflow but keeps out excessive heat, cold, wind and UV rays.
Trellidor Rollerstyle aluminium shutters are available in a variety of different slat options. Some allow limited light and air to filter inside when the shutters are partially closed. The shutters can be fully automated and remote controlled. Ask your Trellidor franchise about our battery back-up, manual-override and solar powered options and our safety sensors.
Trellidor Retractable security gates can be custom-made for doors or windows. In an open plan home they can protect the door leading from the kitchen/living area onto the patio. They can be powder coated to match the glass doors and the rest of the home’s colour palette. The doors can be left open when the security gates are closed and locked. This keeps the family safe while retaining the natural flow to the outside.
To see all these different Trellidor products in one place, visit your nearest Trellidor RSA franchise or Trellidor International distributor.
