Burglar Gates are Essential for Homes and Businesses.

According to ‘The General Household Survey 2018’ by Stats SA, more than 35% of South Africans own a house. Unfortunately, we do pretty well on the crime statistics front too. According to a 2020 Gallup Poll, South Africa is rated 5th most dangerous out of 144 countries surveyed. But it is doubtful that this is news to anyone who lives in South Africa. There is so much crime in South Africa that it can become overwhelming, so it goes without saying that there is a high demand for home security and effective burglar gates.

There are many different types of neighbourhoods and abodes in South Africa, but one thing they all have is doors and windows. This isn’t Canada: we cannot leave everything open all the time. But even when locked, without burglar gates the entrances and exits to our homes are woefully inefficient at coping with the possible intrusion by a professional criminal.

Sequre can design and manufacture a custom fit for your specific needs. Because there are many different types of homes in South Africa, there is by no means a uniformity in the structure of windows and doors. Whatever the entrances and exits look like, we can take you from design to installation and keep your property safe.

The need to secure buildings with retractable burglar gates and security bars also extends to the commercial sector. As far as the urban commercial sector is concerned, security is needed in two main areas: in the industrial areas, and for shops in the cities and suburbs. Industrial areas tend to be less salubrious areas and often have a high crime rate, especially in theft and vandalism. Security guards are costly and are often not numerous enough to cover the scope of the properties. For these reasons, you need to ensure that your property can resist a breach by a criminal.

If your shop is on a high street, even if burglary in your area is low, the chance of vandalism and looting in the event of a protest is a daunting possibility. Sequre has protective shutters for your shop windows to protect them from any would-be looter, vandal, or loiterer. Service entrances are also often overlooked on business premises and a criminal will target those areas, especially if they are not protected with burglar gates. These entrances, particularly in the older buildings which are popular for trendy stores, tend to be old doors, almost off the hinges with rusty locks, generally poorly secured, and easy to breach. Let us assist you in finding the right burglar gates and fit for your commercial property.

Sequre stocks all the right products for your security needs, with a lifetime guarantee. Whatever the shape of the entrance you need, we have the means to take the solution from design to installation.
