What are the advantages of Clear Burglar Bars over steel burglar bars
Clear Burglar Bars versus steel burglar bars, which ones are better for you?
This is a question we often get asked and it is fairly simple to answer.
First and foremost the obvious advantage is the fact that they are clear, which has massive benefits for your home, I have listed a few below:
- Clear Burglar Bars are completely transparent and allow 100% light transfer through your windows and doors into your home, unlike steel burglar bars which actually cut a percentage of light out of your home, in some cases up to 25% of light can be blocked out of a standard sized window or door!
- Due to the 100% optical clarity of SheerGuard’s Clear Burglar Bars, your view to the outside world is unobstructed, allowing you to enjoy your surrounding environment to the full extent.
- One can never dismiss the fact that steel burglar bars create that jailed in feeling, as South Africans this really is the last thing we want at home. By installing SheerGuard Clear Burglar Bars you combine strength and beauty perfectly and immediately change “Your home is your jail” to “Your home is your castle”
SheerGuard Clear Burglar Bars are made from polycarbonate, not just any polycarbonate mind you, we only use virgin polycarbonate, meaning there is no ‘regrind’ or reconstitution of any sort in our Clear Burglar Bars. Polycarbonate is a virtually indestructible transparent material has been around for over 50 years and is used in just about every industry where strength and transparency are required. Polycarbonate is used extensively in bullet proofing applications, aeroplane windows, riot shields for police, bank teller protection, it is even used by NASA for protecting astronauts in space!
