High Visibility Theft & Vandalism Protection!

Security grilles, gates, and shutters are designed to help to secure your business in many different ways by providing both visibility and security. They allow for an unobstructed view of the building interior, including store displays and merchandise, to help protect against theft and vandalism.

The visibility they allow is especially great because while protecting your place of work, it helps in advertising your business to potential customers 24/7. Anyone walking by your storefront can see your merchandise, even if business hours are over. Hopefully, some of them will come back the next day and become a customer.

Security Grilles

Security grilles are the styles mostly used in shopping malls and are made to be ascetically pleasing while providing protection. Depending on the model, they can either roll up or fold sideways during business hours, then close and lock after hours.

They are also commonly used at entrances of underground parking structures and high-rise buildings and apartments to control who has access.

Security Gates

Security gates are used more often for street access storefronts and are usually installed inside the building behind the glass storefront windows. Their accordion style allows you to fold them open off to the side during business hours and then fold them closed when your business is closed.

Security Shutters

Security shutters differ from security grilles and gates as they are solid and do not provide any visibility to the store’s interior. A jewelry store may choose this option if they don’t want their jewelry visible during off-hours, decreasing the chance of someone being tempted to break in. Schools also use them in their sports and concession areas.

Ideal Applications for Security Grilles, Shutters & Gates

There are many places where security grilles, shutters, or gates may be used.

  • Shopping Malls
  • Concessions
  • Hotels
  • Street Access Store Fronts
  • Underground Parking
  • Schools
  • Cafeterias
  • Airports

Security gates, grilles, and shutters are customizable by size to fit almost any door or window.

Advantages of Security Gates, Grilles, and Shutters

All three options are made of strong metal. This makes it hard for anyone to break through.

When the store is open for business, they take up little room. Gates and grilles can fold to the sides, taking up minimal amounts of floor space. Some grille designs roll up to the ceiling. Security shutters roll up into a barrel at the top of the window or ceiling, taking up no floor space at all.

Security gates, grilles, and shutters provide an excellent level of protection for stores. All three options are made from strong metals to prevent break-ins. Security gates and grilles are see-through, so potential customers can still see inside when they are closed. Security shutters are solid, keeping everything out of sight while the store is closed.
