Protecting a commercial property is important to you and your business as well as your insurer. Commercial security grilles play a key part in this protection along with window and door locks, alarms and CCTV and of course the human factor that they are all used correctly.
The attractive, less obtrusive nature of modern security grilles make them a popular choice; whist providing a strong physical deterrent, their see through property allows people to see in to and out of the building when they are closed. This means customers can see into shop displays to ‘window shop’ whilst the commercial grilles are closed. Conversely, they allow daylight into and allow vision out of offices and other commercial premises and so in many cases, they let through sufficient light so they can be kept shut at all times except when the windows require cleaning or maintenance.
Ideally security grilles are specified into a building by the architect, however many are retro-fitted afterwards. Either way, they can be externally mounted on the exterior of the building to protect the doorway or window, or mounted internally behind the window or door.
When specifying security grilles for your commercial property, the starting point is always a risk assessment. What is the risk of your building being attacked by intruders or vandals? This risk will depend on location as well as the potential intruder’s perception of the value of goods contained inside. This security risk assessment needs to be balanced with the need for the building to be attractive to staff to work in or for visitors to visit. This is particularly important when the property is a retail unit or shop wishing to entice consumers as they walk past out of hours. After all it is difficult to ‘window shop’ through solid steel shutters.

A simple steel security grille to restrict personnel access. Cost effective and available straight from stock in common sizes.
