A guide to window guards

Home owners today worry that even with electronic alarms, most burglars are in and out of their homes well before someone responds to the alarm. With door and window guards and other options, you can now keep burglars from entering your home altogether.

Window guards, bars, mesh and grills

Besides keeping burglars out, window and door guards also ensure the safety of little children. Installing security bars for windows prevents children falling out. It is useful to determine which feature works best for your house, whether window mesh, window grills or window bars.
Window bars These can be either fixed or removable, and installed either vertically or horizontally. They resemble the traditional prison bars and provide an effective deterrent to burglars. The removable bars can be installed in areas where there is less of a security risk.
Window mesh Perforated window mesh guards are ideal as they provide the effect of tinted glass windows and have zero maintenance. They are also very strong and provide effective protection against vandals.
Window grills The lattice-design window grills provide very strong protection owing to the nature of the design and welding. These are available as two kinds: fixed and folding.
