Folding Security Gates Are Necessary

Why Folding Security Gates Are Necessary to Have in Your Home and Office

 

Protecting your home or office from unauthorised entry by criminals has become one of the main priorities for many property owners. Crime is rife in South Africa, and break-ins, home invasions, and burglary have become sad facts of life here. Most property owners now invest quite significantly in making their properties and businesses safer, and folding security gates can go a long way towards ensuring the safety of the premises.

 

These work perfectly in many different situations. They concertina open and shut, and as a result, are easy to fold into small corners when not in use. Some of them come with slam-lock technology, which means that the door can be slammed shut in an emergency, for instance, when someone is chasing you, and the door will automatically lock once it is slammed shut. They are also virtually impenetrable once slammed shut.

 

One of the main reasons that people love the security options available from Sequre is because they are unobtrusive and can be moved out of the way when not in use. The usual gate will normally have to be opened and closed, and can form an unattractive barrier and get in the way when it is open. Folding security gates can be retracted and tucked away, so they will not get in the way of people walking in and out of the door, or perhaps even in a passage where it is installed.

 

Folding security gates are not only great to use in doorways, but they can also be used to cordon off certain areas of the home to create safe spaces. Often, they are installed in passages to separate the sleeping area from the other parts of the home. This means that if somebody does gain entry to the building, that the sleeping quarters are kept secure and that the residents in the sleeping quarters have a much greater degree of safety.

 

Another great advantage of these security gates is that they can be used in spaces where airflow is needed. Whether you are working in your garage at home or inside a room with large sliding doors, they can be locked shut, and they will still let in air and light, unlike solid doors. This means that the people and possessions inside these rooms can remain safe while still enjoying the freedom of an outside space.

 

Folding doors are particularly popular in the retail industry, and they can come in different forms. They can be used externally as pull-down shutters that lock in order to provide a shield on the outside of the shop, or they can be used to control entry and exit to the shop. They can also provide a good view of the shop display while also preventing people from stealing goods through broken windows.

 

Folding security gates also provide a visual deterrent for criminals. Because these are so hard to get through, thieves or intruders are more likely to choose another location for their criminal activities when faced with these innovative gates. Having adequate safety measures also decreases insurance costs, and can increase the value of the property significantly!

Effective Burglar Proofing from Sequre

3 Important Factors to Consider When Choosing Effective Burglar Proofing from Sequre

 

It is a sad fact that South Africans now live with the daily threat of break-ins and home invasions because the crime rates in this country are so high. Nowadays, it is very rare to spot a home or office without some form of security measures. These could include anything from the installation of burglar proofing to a full-scale security solution that includes electric fences, alarm systems, flood lights, CCTV cameras, security gates, and even security guards patrolling the premises.

 

It is evident that people feel threatened, especially at their most vulnerable, including when they are asleep or when they are absent from their premises. Getting a guard dog is no longer considered to be as much of a threat to intruders, as dogs inevitably get poisoned or eliminated in other ways when intruders really want to get into the premises.

 

If you are currently on the lookout for highly effective burglar proofing, you can get these from our team at Sequre. We do, however, recommend that you take a few factors into consideration before you make a decision about which type to install. We stock a range of highly effective options that will work in most situations, but you have to gather information on the following factors first.

 

  1. Get Your Measurements Right: It is important to know which areas you want to burglar proof and what the measurements of these places are. Ensure that the measurements of windows or other areas where you need to install burglar proofing are accurate. Remember that it is not just the window surface that has to be measured; you also need to measure the amount of space between the interior sides of the window frame.

 

Also get a measurement on the height on the inside of the window space, and the width of the window interior. If you are unsure what and where to measure, one of our consultants from Sequre will be only too happy to help with guidance and measurement. We will also be able to provide valuable advice about the types that will suit your building and your needs the best.

 

  1. Bylaws of The Neighbourhood: In some cases, certain neighbourhoods are very particular about the type of burglar proofing that can be installed, especially if the area is considered a heritage site. Certain gated communities or housing estates can also have their own rules and regulations when it comes to the maintenance of a streamlined aesthetic throughout the area. Speak to the estate manager or security personnel to ensure that you know which types will work best and which types are not allowed.

 

  1. Visual Appearance: Security is vital, yet you do not want your home to look like a prison from the outside. There are now many different types on the market that will have a minimal impact on the aesthetic appeal of the home. Certain types can even be completely clear, and others can be pulled down like shutters at night while still providing protection during the day. Effective security measures and curb appeal do not always go hand in hand, but if you speak to our team at Sequre, we can provide you with burglar proofing that will not detract from the look of your home.

Unfortunately, most people in South Africa are vulnerable to crime, and if you have an office, business premises, factory, or home that needs to be protected from unwanted intrusion, roller shutter gates are very practical. They are usually created from steel, which makes them strong and corrosion proof. They are highly robust obstacles, and very few people can actually find their way through them to gain entrance to your premises. They can be motorised and automated, and this just adds to the ease and comfort of using them.

 

  • Visual Deterrent: One of the main benefits is that they act as a very effective visual deterrent. Because they are so robust, not many people will attempt to get through them. When your property is spotted by criminals, your roller shutter gates will put them off and they are then much more likely to seek out another property that is less effectively protected. Most criminals wish to gain access and exit easily and quickly, and doing this with roller shutter gates in place is virtually impossible.

 

  • Protects Against Looting: It is a sad fact that political marches in South Africa are frequent and sometimes get out of hand. If you want your shop to be protected during any type of looting or acts of vandalism, these gates will ensure that looters or unwanted intruders cannot gain access to your premises easily. This helps to keep your stock and your office premises secure.

 

  • Storm Proof: If there is a particularly violent storm, roller shutter gates can protect windows and doors from breaking when objects blow against them in high winds, or even in serious hail storms.

 

  • Light, Safety, and Ventilation: Often, they are used where large open doors are, like in the garage or a large open patio with roller doors. Solid gates and doors may provide great protection, but they also block out sunlight and air flow. The advantage is that they provide total safety, while still allowing air and light to flow through the building. This means that you can enjoy the cool breeze yet still feel safe if you are working on a project in your garage or protected work premises.

 

  • Aesthetically Appealing: While security gates in the past have not been the most attractive objects, modern technology has enabled companies, such as Sequre, to develop highly attractive security gates and roller shutter gates. The industrial feel of older security doors has been replaced with more attractive options that seem less invasive and prominent, while still providing high security levels.
