The benefits of window bars and door bar gates

People have started to realise that burglar alarms and CCTV cannot always be guarenteed upon to prevent burglary.  Nowdays, more and more people want to put barriers on their window and doors to prevent break ins, particularly in urban areas like London, where crime levels are high.

Window bars (often called burglar bars) and door bar gates are a very effective barrier to preventing burglary and very often, the first line of defence.  It helps to reassure the property owner and provides peace of mind.

The most effective window bars and bar gates are made out of steel, as this is the strongest and most durable metal.  This type of security is available with a decorative design and can be coloured to blend in and compliment your home surroundings.

Brown Security Installations has installed many window bars and bar gates for our clients.  Unfortunately, it is usually only after a burglary has happened that we are contacted.

If you are considering this type of security, contact Brown Security Installations for a free of charge consultation and no obligation quotation.
