Window Security Bars

What are window security bars ?

window security bars - Adaptabar grille fitted to door

The term window security bars is used generically to describe any form of bar or grille system fitted to a window to provide additional protection against intruders or break-ins.

There are basically two types available;

Removable or opening bar systems include collapsible security grilles which can be locked across a window, door, or corridor, etc, which can be locked in the open position to allow access during permitted times, or locked in the closed position to prevent access.

These products are manufactured to order and as prior to your order, you require a specialist fitter to survey your site and accurately measure up, then come back and fit them a few weeks later when they have been manufactured, naturally they often involve significant cost (a single collapsible grille for instance could easily cost you over £1,000.00 excluding vat).

Static window security bars such as the popular Adaptabar security bar / modular security grille system, from Insight Security offer an inexpensive alternative, are quick and easy to install (suitable for DIY or professional installation), and are designed to be permanently fixed in position.

Adaptabar window security bars can be installed as individual bars, or can be linked together with optional lateral spacer bars to convert them into a security grille for maximum security. As they are available from stock for immediate delivery, you won`t have to wait weeks for custom size bars or grilles to be manufactured and because the bars are telescopic, they are guaranteed fit first time every time.
