In fact, many residential property owners are unaware of the benefits that can be obtained from an investment in window grilles as they have changed considerably over the past several decades. Read on as we go over everything there is to know…

Are window grilles a safety risk?

Since the average window grille is installed by drilling directly into the brickwork of a property, many people see them as a safety risk in the event of a fire. After all, it is not uncommon for inhabitants to jump out of a window when the pathway to the door is blocked by flames. Lucky, modern window grilles are retractable which means that they can open and close in the event of an emergency whilst still preventing crime and vandalism on an everyday basis.

What materials are window grilles made from?

Most window grilles are crafted from metals like aluminium due it is strength and longevity. With this said, it is also possible to purchase high-quality alternatives that are made from wrought iron or steel as these materials are malleable which means that they can be easily shaped into the desired design without sacrificing the security appeal that a window grille is known for.

Do window grilles damage the brickwork?

Although window grilles are often installed on the exterior of a property using drilling equipment, it is very unlikely that the brickwork will be severely affected or weakened during this process. After all, an experienced engineer will know how and where to install a window grille in order to provide the homeowner with the best possible results. When it comes to residential security, many homeowners believe that they have to sacrifice the aesthetical value of their home in order to ensure that the exterior is protected. Here at ABC Industrial, we want our readers to know that this couldn’t be further from the truth! After all, window grilles have adapted in many ways over the years and are now considered the most affordable yet stylish security solution on the market.
