Security gates and grilles are suitable for commercial and residential property, whether it be for a shop, office, home or basement. Unfortunately, the latter two are commonplace within London and surrounding counties; nevertheless they can be manufactured and adjusted to suit each sustainable living and working application. With each application in mind, gates and grilles are not always installed for the purpose of burglary prevention. In all properties, they can often offer a safety barrier to children or public where vulnerable openings present a threat of falling through.
In terms of security, it is important to find a compromise between accessibility and barricade. For most commercial arrangements, fire regulations and safety officers rightly establish guidelines to ensure that the potential need for an emergency escape is viably maintained. An example of this is an opening grille with a locking mechanism, and a key secured in a fixed place (“break-glass” box secured to a nearby wall). We offer a range of gates and grilles with various design options and advice to fulfil these requirements.
For security gates and grilles, there are two common supply options: “supply and install”, or “supply only”. For the supply only option, you are responsible for providing us with the dimensions of the grille and fitting it. For this reason, we strongly recommend that a competent person with experience in a related field carry out the work.
Our offer of supply and install includes an initial site survey, where an experienced surveyor will visit your property free of charge to take measurements of your windows and give advice. What makes us unique is our surveyors also undertake manufacturing and installation procedures. We find this practice most effective when tackling complicated tasks, and providing trust to our customers.

A lightweight means of protecting glazed areas. Mesh grilles can be fixed to windows and doors with minimal hindrance to mechanical operatives.
Solutions for either an additional barrier to an existing door, or a single barrier to side alleys and pathways, providing controlled access to your premises.
Essentially, grilles or gates offer a physical barrier that is aimed to prevent access to your property. Solutions such as intruder alarms provide warning to local residents, and sometimes police, that there may be a burglary happening. CCTV provides a means of surveillance that is primarily useful for evidence, or monitoring of your property. All aspects provide a visual deterrent, which will aid in discouraging any potential burglar. When assessing security, it is important to take a view that nothing is impregnable. Fundamentally, we try to make a criminal’s job difficult by building barriers that will create extra time for them to break through. This increases their threat of getting caught, especially if the police have been called. For this reason, security grilles are also effective in conjunction with burglar alarms – when they are fitted correctly!
With the cooperation of the U.K home office, we have created a system that provides you with local crime information that has been recorded by the police within a mile radius of any given UK address or postcode. We hope this will assist you in making choices about security, or even in anticipation for relocating yourself to a new area.
