A new record in home security

Trellidor custom made and fitted close to 3 500 security barriers to doors and windows of the 350 houses at Eskom’s Ledibeng staff housing estate near Lephalale, Limpopo.Trellidor has set a new record in the number of security barriers supplied on a single project. As subcontractors on site at Eskom’s Ledibeng Eco Estate staff housing venture near Lephalale, in Limpopo, Trellidor secured a total of 350 homes, fitting custom-made physical security barriers to the doors and windows of each home.

“The contract required 804 security gates and 2 694 window fixtures.

The total of 3 498 units is the most we’ve supplied to one commercial job in Trellidor’s 30 year history,” said marketing and sales director, Peter Rawson. “We are usually the last contractors to come in on a project like this, which usually means there are time pressures to complete installation before the due handover date. At the Ledibeng site, we had just 40 days in which to measure, manufacture and fit our security barriers, installing an average of 120 units a day.”

Trellidor Lephalale franchise owner Abrie Loubser was assisted in each phase of the project with support from head office in Durban. This is one of the chief benefits of Trellidor’s franchise model. Commercial manager, Paul van Blerk, technical support manager Shaun Erasmus and installation technicians from Trellidor’s Johannesburg branches bolstered Loubser’s team.

Loubser said, “For us as a small and very new franchise this project has been interesting, and we now know that with help from our franchisor we have the capacity to complete jobs of any size or complexity successfully.”
