Homeowners are often overcome with feelings of anxiety and concern when both leaving and returning to their home. It is neither unusual nor unnecessary to naturally let our minds linger on some of the crimes that we have seen, heard or read about in recent times. 

The crime rate in South Africa is on a dramatic increase with more individuals seeking higher security measures in an effort to protect their loved ones and hard earned possessions.

The 2018/2019 South African crimes statistics reported an average of 61 house robberies (victims confronted by perpetrator) and 605 house burglaries (no confrontation/ contact between both victim and perpetrator) each day. These figures are alarming and urge one to take action before becoming just another statistic.

Of the many available methods such as alarm systems, cameras and flood lighting to secure your home, installing a security gate is the most popular.

Most burglaries are opportunistic crimes, meaning that if a criminal deems your home easy to break into then there is a greater chance of them targeting it however, having a security gate provides an instant visual deterrent.

The installation of such security gates has gained lots of traction for both private and commercial properties as if fulfills the need for both safety and privacy.

It is always advisable to make your choice based on the integrity and material structure of the gate rather than basing your decision solely on costing.

The most affordable products do not always guarantee the best results and when your safety is in question, you should not have to compromise. Our trellis security gates are among our best sellers due to its functional design and nature, with some ranges also offering our double Slamlock feature.
