SheerGuard is a family of franchises all over South-Africa, Namibia and Botswana that strive to change people’s perspective on security. We at SheerGuard would like the world to realise that your security solutions do not have to compromise the appearance of your home to ensure safety; but rather it can be designed to enhance your living space with an unparalleled aesthetic ability to merge both indoor and outdoor spaces.
SheerGuard has a range of clear security solutions along with interior design decoration options such as blinds and shutters. One of SheerGuards‘ most important principles is to ensure that you receive premium quality security products at affordable prices.
We supply MAKROLON® Polycarbonate clear burglar bars and transparent security gates. Polycarbonate is used to allow a large variety of safety products to withstand high force blows such as airplane windows, the Bugatti windshield, and riot shields. After we researched the material, SheerGuard found this as the optimal clear solution for safety barriers. Our Clear Burglar Bars eliminate the jail-like appearance that steel burglar bars present.
A lot of questions are raised with regards to how strong MAKROLON® Polycarbonate really is and how it compares to steel; as steel has been the go-to security solution for many years to date. Well now, I am here to change your perspective: SheerGuard took the authority to go and test how strong our bars really are by putting it through the swing ball test and the result turned out as follows:
SheerGuard PremiumGuard is 6 mm thick by 34 mm wide, this bar withstands a blow of 60 Joules before it starts bending whereas steel of 6 mm only withstands 28 Joules before it snaps in half. If Polycarbonate can do the exact same job, why would you compromise your view when you can enhance it?
