Standard design approaches for manufacturing and installing security bars consider the purpose, placement and type of building. For example whether it's installed inside or outside can affect the types of fixings we use, if it's residential then aesthetics are of concern, and when installed for commercial buildings then insurance or safety requirements can be quite particular.
Whichever the case may be, trying to discover what your options are can be a confusing place to start.
Bar Grilles are becoming a common standard for windows in many parts of the UK, and we have some common types which are used for the majority of installations. Here, we cover the general materials used along with some fixing methods to suit each requirement.
Keep in mind that hinged and removable facilities can be added to window grilles, but you may also want to check out collapsible gates, a specific retractable type of security gate for windows and doors that offers great functionality for this purpose.
