Reasons why Trellidor retractable security gate is still a winner

Here are some good reasons why Trellidor Retractable security gates are still our most popular protection for doors and windows.

Let the outdoors in with Trellidor Retractable sliding security gates

It may look more ‘traditional’ alongside our new ranges, but Trellidor Retractable is still one of the most practical sliding security gates on the market.  One often cited reason is that when your doors and windows are open and the retractable security barriers closed and locked, you can still enjoy the outdoors.  Sun, light and air flow inside freely so you don’t feel hemmed in.  But you do feel protected from any dangers lurking in the garden.

Easy to use sliding security gates

Trellidor Retractable sliding security gates have been carefully designed to work easily.  You wouldn’t think that there could be any difference between one barrier and the next, but some poorly constructed designs are difficult to open and close.  Sometimes they’re stiff to open and bulky when stacked to the side.

Trellidor’s design is specially made to open and close smoothly and stacks neatly to the side.  As long as you follow a simple, regular maintenance program you won’t have any problems in this regard.  We also put out gate components through a special anti-corrosion process, so our sliding security gates work well even at the coast.

Uncomplicated locks and keys

One of the most practical aspects of Trellidor Retractable sliding security gates is that they open and close using one key and one key hole.  There’s no struggling with multiple keys and locks when you’re in a hurry or a panic. 

The key operates three locking points within the lock stile in our patented dead-lock system, so you get extra strength locking security in this way.  These locks have other strengthening features that make them unique and dependable.

Several models to suit your budget

Trellidor Retractable sliding security gates are available in several different models.  There is one to suit every budget as well as the risk profile of the door or window it will protect.  For example, if your home is in a high crime risk area, it’s advisable to choose a stronger, more expensive sliding security gate.  Your local Trellidor franchise will advise on the best models to choose for your particular circumstances.
