Why you should not fit your own security gate:
Trellidor franchises sometimes get asked by customers if they can buy their safety gate off the shelf from the franchise and fit it themselves.
Here’s why this is not a good idea.
Off-the-shelf is not made-to-fit
Yes you can buy safety gates from retail outlets, but have you ever compared the quality of these gates to custom-made ones? You won’t realise what a vast difference there is until you take a serious look at both.
Once you’ve had your hands on a ready-made gate and shaken it about a bit to see how it holds up, visit your local Trellidor showroom and do the same with a Trellidor Retractable Security gate. The difference in quality will be obvious
Made-to-fit safety gates will also, as the name says, fit the space more snugly that an off-the-shelf one.
Trellidor Retractable Security gates are fitted by proper technicians using unique fixings, so they will be a lot harder to damage. And the one thing robbers don’t usually have is time to spend fighting to remove gates and their fixings.
Ready-made does not give you reliable strength choices
Trellidor security gates are available in a number of strength options. These gates all look similar, but have different in-built strengthening features.
There are plenty of affordable options and you can find out about these from your local Trellidor franchise. You can also choose whether you want your Trellidor safety gate to be made of steel or aluminium.
The Trellidor top of the range model has been certified as the strongest sliding security gate in the world. Of course, more strength means a higher price and this gate is aimed at the commercial market. But it is reassuring if the model you choose comes from a range that includes an internationally certified product.
It about saving lives, not things
Nobody wants to lose their possessions, but its really lives that matter. Good quality, reliable, custom-made safety gates on your doors and windows give you a better chance of keeping home invaders out for longer. This gives you the opportunity to call for help or escape through an emergency exit window or door.
Professionally manufactured and fitted safety gates buy you more time than flimsy off-the-shelf ones do.
