AdaptaBar - Practical, low cost Window Security Bars & Security Grilles
for homes and businesses
Each telescopic window bar set is made up of a solid steel bar section and a robust steel tube section. This versatile modular grille system is available off the shelf in flatpack form. You choose exactly what you want - install bars only, alternatively you can turn the system into a customised grille by adding lateral spacer bars - practical protection for almost any window or door.
AdaptaBars are available in five standard lengths and with a choice of
Face Fixing (F) or Reveal Fixing (R)
Adaptabar window security bars offer protection for any window or aperture from 18" to 79" (300 mm - 2,007 mm) in height and of any width. Their adjustability means that even if you get the measurements slightly wrong when you order, the bars you should still be able to complete the installation safely and easily (unlike trying to install a fixed grill system that is 2mm too tall for the aperture it was ordered for!)

Typical AdaptaBar installation
AdaptaBar components - choice of bar lengthsa and spacers
For maximum security, use of security fastenings is recommended when installing bars and grilles.
Lateral spacers are available as an option in order to foil attempts to prize the bars apart and add significantly to the overall grill security for larger apertures. They can be installed as a single strip (as shown) or can be formed into attractive geometric patterns and their use is recommended where longer bars (e.g. those over 42" (1067mm) are used.
For security applications bars should be fitted at 5" (125mm) centres (BS8220) whilst for child safety applications, building regulations recommend 4" (100mm) between bar centres.
Centre fixings are recommended where longer lengths are used
Use of lateral spacer links upgrade the bars into a security grille
