5 Things You (Probably) Did not Know About Sequre Security Gates


As much as we hate to admit it, it is crucial to protect your home and business against break-ins. With crime statistics rising, it is hard to push the anxious feeling aside that you are not protected well enough. Some heroes, however, are often overlooked and those heroes are your friendly neighbourhood security gates. We see them everywhere and we rely on them to keep us safe at night. But do we know everything there is to know about security gates?

Your answer is probably “yes”, and you may be right, but we may surprise you. Take a look at these five things you (probably) did not know about security gates. Maybe next time you walk through the front door, you will look at your gate a little differently, give it a little nod, and understand it a little better.

1.Increase the Value of Your Property

As soon as you install a security gate in your home, you are investing in your safety. This immediately increases the value of your property. Ultimately, this is a big win-win situation. Not only will you feel more at ease, knowing you are secured, but it can potentially bring bigger returns when you decide to sell your house at a later stage.

2.You Can Customise Your Gates

At Sequre, we understand that your home is your safe space. It should welcome you back after a long day with open arms. Arriving at the front door with a jagged, unappealing gate might make you feel slightly trapped. After all, feeling safe does not have to look bad. Luckily, Sequre range offers various customisable options. Contact us with your specifications and we will help you find the right design.

3.Lower the Price of Your Insurance Deals

Your trusted gate has one more trick up its sleeve. Investing in a security gate shows that you take the safety of your property seriously. Because your gate’s main purpose is to ensure the safety and security of your home, your insurance company could be able to offer you a discount or even allow you to opt-in for lower premium.

4.A Brand You Can Trust

Sequre was one of the first three retractable security barrier companies in South Africa to achieve the stringent SABS ISO 9001:2000 Quality certification. We were also founder members of the South African Security Barrier Association (SASBA). We now supply and distribute our trusted range of security products to customers throughout South Africa and abroad and boast over 15 years of experience.
