A new security concept

Trellidor Clear Guard Security InstallationTrellidor, manufacturer of South Africa’s best known trellis-style security gates and burglar guards, has launched a new security system unlike any other currently available on the local market. Called Trellidor Clear Guard, it’s an attractive alternative consisting of an aluminium frame with a high tensile steel mesh insert that offers protection without spoiling the view.

“We’ve spent three years developing this product in conjunction with Meshtec in Thailand, the company that developed this industrial grade mesh screen, because the product had to be strong enough to cope with South African crime conditions,” said Nick Sacco, Trellidor business development manager.

Trellidor Clear Guard units have undergone rigorous tests for security screen doors and windows according to the Australian Standard (AS), including knife sheer, dynamic impact, jemmy and salt spray tests. The product surpassed the standard in all of these tests.

“We see these security screen doors and windows as a first choice for homes, corporate offices, commercial buildings, hospitals, police stations, eco-estates and game reserves, particularly in those projects where developers and architects are reluctant to specify conventional security barriers.”

The units can be tailored in both single and double formats to fit a wide range of door and window styles. These include hinged, sliding and French doors, and casement, awning, sliding and fixed windows, as well as a ‘quick escape window’ for emergency exits.

In addition to offering protection against unwanted intrusion, Trellidor Clear Guard screens out up to 60% of the sun’s UV rays, moderating the internal temperature, improving energy efficiency. It allows air to flow freely into the home while preventing pests such as monkeys, baboons, flies, mosquitoes and snakes from getting inside.

Trellidor Clear Guard is manufactured at Trellidor’s SABS ISO 9001 certified Durban factory and is guaranteed against corrosion both inland and at the coast.
