Changing Conditions and Trends

As times, societies, economic conditions, criminal trends and social standards change and become more sophisticated, so too do concerns for security and safety. Change gave rise to a new industry – the manufacture, distribution and installation of select security products – burglar proofing, security gates and doors, to name a few.

Protecting Properties and People

Companies like Sequre, in their roles as suppliers and installers of security products, continue to respond accordingly. The importance of protecting properties and persons with the latest effective burglar proofing products cannot be over-emphasised in 2022.

Securing Windows

By about the 1940s – 1950s, some South African homes in urban areas featured burglar proofing, then consisting of flat steel bars, welded onto the frames of opening windows. Security gates for doorways were rarely seen in domestic applications.

Ancient Security Barriers

However, the practice of protecting windows from unauthorised entry goes back to ancient times, as does theft and robbery. In ancient and distant civilisations in China, ancient Egypt and Rome, and later, in England and Scotland during the Medieval Ages, window grilles or barriers made of stone, wood or iron were fitted across smaller openings in walls that served as windows.

Barrier Products for 2022

In the greater scheme of things, physical security measures as we know them in 2022 are relatively new, but theft and threat are as old as mankind itself. This is why people who are mindful of this take preventative measures by securing their properties with special barriers, designed to keep criminals out and everyone within, safe from immediate threats.

Regardless of which type of security product you choose, precise and correct measurements of openings are essential to ensure a proper customised fit and function, even for Sequre’s DIY options.

Fundamental Security Measures

Our types and styles of burglar proofing products on offer are broadly categorised into four groups – DIY, Burglar Bars, Retractable Security Gates and Roller Shutters. We’re focusing on the first two types, which are fundamental to our industry and customers.
