Why you really need these aluminium burglar bars

Trellidor Cottage Guard burglar bars protect these large glass windows in a children’s playroom


These aluminium burglar bars are in a class of their own & deserve a second look when you’re deciding on what to fit to your windows to protect them from a robbery attempt.

Aluminium burglar bars that are ahead of the pack

Burglar guards come in all shapes and sizes and can confuse your decision making process.  Trellidor believes that your main priority for a security barrier should be strength, whether it’s a door or window you are trying to defend against a potential break-in.

There are a number of ways of looking at burglar bars for windows to judge if they’re able to do the job you require of them.  Here is a quick list:

  • How are they made? Custom made is always going to win out over DIY as they’re made to fit the opening properly.
  • What are they constructed from? The material may rust quickly, weakening the burglar guards, or may be too flimsy to resist a kick from a well-aimed boot.
  • How are they installed? There are two issues here.  One is that fully framed burglar guards are usually stronger than semi-framed or no frame; the second is that professionally installed burglar bars fixed into the brick around the window is better than burglar bars screwed into a wooden window frame.
  • What guarantees do they carry? Check out the fine print – some burglar guard ranges carry incredible terms and conditions that ensure you’ll never get your money’s worth.

Trellidor Cottage Guard aluminium burglar bars tick all the boxes

Trellidor Cottage Guard is a premium quality burglar bar that makes your security barrier decision easy.  It is custom made to fit your window, ensuring ‘best fit’ and strength under attack.  It is made from aluminium tubing with a reinforced steel bar inside the tubing for extra ‘muscle’.

The burglar bars are fully framed and bolted into the substrate of the window with coach screws to strengthen their resistance to assault. Trellidor guarantees them for five years against defective workmanship, materials and corrosion, even at the coast.

More to these burglar bars than meets the eye

When deciding on what burglar guards to choose, add the following to the list of why you should seriously consider Trellidor Cottage Guard for your windows:

  • They can be manufactured for any window design, including large expanses of glass that are vulnerable to break-ins.
  • These burglar guards can be powder coated in a number of attractive colour options so can comply with your decor colour palette.
  • They are manufactured in the Trellidor factory, which is ISO audited and SABS approved for your peace of mind.
