Physical security – must it be seen to be believed?

Physical security such as window bars and grilles are a bold and highly visible security solution. While this provides a more obvious deterrent to criminals, it also has a greater impact on the aesthetics of a building.

Security bars can be ugly and unwelcoming, creating the impression that a building isn’t “safe”. For residential buildings, they may even devalue your house, as they can be off putting for buyers. Inside the building, occupants may find they feel “closed in” or trapped by bars on windows. Should you wish to install more pleasing window security bars, there are decorative versions available.

Claire Butler, Commercial Manager at Manchester based Window Safety Solutions said “It’s difficult to choose the right window security solution whether it’s for your home or business. Think about your area and why you need protection – if burglary is your main concern either window bars or grilles will give you peace of mind. If vandalism is more of an issue for you security bars may not be enough.”

Window Security Solutions offer protection in the form of retractable window grilles, polycarbonate window shields, security bars and other security grilles. Security grilles range from decorative visible deterrents to unobtrusive meshes. Window Security Solutions have a number of specialist grilles that are designed to look like tinted glass, while offering outstanding protection.

Window Security Solutions also offer security solutions which are more aesthetically attractive, but still offer excellent security measures for any property.

The Hammerglass polycarbonate window shield, for example, means no more broken glass. It’s the best form of shop window protection on the market. There is no need for security grilles or security mesh. It’s a polycarbonate window shield which means it’s an unbreakable window!

Claire went on to say “This is an excellent product for any shop or business, providing 24 hour window protection without unsightly window grilles, bars or even roller shutters. Roller shutters often have a detrimental effect on towns and villages which is why town planners look for alternatives. There is no need to request planning permission when installing and it will act as secure and yet visually appealing than other window solutions.”
