The Window Security Bars are a popular, cost effective way of securing a window. They can be fitted externally or for a higher level of security can be fitted internally. We manufacture every grille to suit the application and security risk. For Internal Domestic windows, we suggest a 12mm round bar, as it's not too heavy and prison like. For External use, we recommend a minimum of 16mm bars and for commercial and higher levels of security, we suggest 20mm round bars. We have a range of frame options, depending on the fixing requirements. We also have the option of standoff legs, so the bar grille stand off the wall and allows the windows to still open.
The Window Security Bars are generally face fixed or reveal fixed to the brickwork. We can make the grilles hinge open, like a security gate. This is ideal for Maintenance, Access or Fire Escape.
The Window Security Bars come Powder Coated White, Brown, Black or Cream as standard. The grilles can be Powder Coated any BS or RAL colour to match your colour scheme at an additional cost. For external installation, we recommend they are Hot Dipped Galvanised and they powder coated for a long term rust protection.

BOX SECTION - The Bar grille is supplied as standard in a fully welded Box Section frame. The size of the box section will depend on the Diameter of the infill bars. The bars are welded into the frame, providing a very strong bar grille. The advantage of the box section is that the fixings can be concealed inside the box section profile, making it a neater and more secure than the other frame types.
NO FRAME - The grille has two tie bars with end fixing plates for reveal or surface fixing,
FLAT BAR FRAME - the vertical bars are welded into a full frame which is manufactured from Flat Steel Bar. The flat bar frame is ideal when face fixing onto a wall or back of a door.
