For those who have already learned where they are able to get the best security gates at the most competitive prices, there is no doubt that they will have gained the quality of protection they were seeking. Among those who are less well-informed, there is a significant chance that they may have either paid too much for their purchase or that, in their attempts to economise; they may have elected to settle for an inferior product.

The incidence of burglary and the increasingly common home invasions by armed groups has risen to an all-time high in South Africa. However, perhaps one of the most frightening aspects of this surge is that more than half of these illegal incursions are now occurring at a time when the owners are actually present on the targeted premises. This means that the any compromise with regard to the quality of protection you may choose to install constitutes a risk not only to your moveable assets but to your life and to the lives of your family.

Alarms and motion sensors are all valuable in their particular application but, depending upon their location, they may serve as little more than a warning that, an incursion is in progress or has been accomplished. In practice neither can be guaranteed to effectively deter a determined and armed gang from successfully completing their business in rather less time than it takes for the average response team to arrive on the scene.

By contrast, when you undertake to get the best security gates installed, preferably at the most competitive price, you will have added a tough barrier that is designed to effectively obstruct any attempt at forced entry by even the most determined and well-equipped criminals long enough for even the most distant armed response team to intervene.

While theft is the most common reason for a forced entry, the threat of physical assault and rape is by far the most feared by victims. Alarmingly, a significant proportion of this type of incident now tends to take place during the hours of daylight.

Products such as the retractable sliding doors available from Sequre, one of the country’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of these units, is able to provide homeowners with tried and tested protection against the risk of such incidents. When approached by a would-be assailant in the garden, for instance, a quick sprint to an entrance fitted with one of these devices allows the potential victim to slam it with the minimum of effort on its near-frictionless tracks and to be certain that its secure slam-lock mechanism has engaged. Once again, one of these near impenetrable barriers will serve to frustrate all attempts by the assailant to force an entry and so allow more than enough time for the intended victim to either telephone for help or to activate a silent alarm.

Sequre manufactures all of its products in accordance with the international standard ISO 9001:2008 and its compliance with the defined provisions is certified by the South African Bureau of Standards. In simple terms this certification means that its quality management systems comply fully with the globally accepted standards and that the company is willing and able to substantiate any claims that it may choose to make regarding the performance characteristics of any product verified by the SABS marque.

When you purchase a Sequre product you will not only get the best security gates on the market, you will also enjoy the affordable prices that have earned the company its reputation for providing exceptionally good value for money. This dual benefit ensures that you will be spared any need to compromise on the strength of your protection simply in order to save a few Rands.

The product range offers the choice of either retractable doors or shutter and includes units suitable for apertures of all sizes. At home, a porch and front door can benefit from the added protection of a double installation while just a single unit can be used to protect any minor entrances. It is no problem for Sequre to tailor a unit to completely enclose a patio area or protect a set of French windows whatever their size.

Sequre offers its sturdy shutters primarily for commercial and industrial use but, these too can be tailored and suitably painted to create an attractive addition to the home also. Whatever your preferred choice, the Sequre brand guarantees you get the best security gates and prices.
