Although to some cas­es this may seem extreme, installing win­dow secu­ri­ty bars in your business’s win­dows can sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce your risk of a break-in. Bur­glars always look for the path of least resis­tance, and this often times lies in vul­ner­a­ble win­dows. When left unguard­ed (even if locked), they make par­tic­u­lar­ly easy access points.

Since the major­i­ty of intru­sions hap­pen dur­ing day­light hours; a quick throw of a brick is some­times all it takes to give a bur­glar enough time to get in and out. But, as you can imag­ine, a set of secu­ri­ty bars makes doing so a lot tougher. When posi­tioned cor­rect­ly, there is no chance of an intrud­er get­ting inside your office or store­front. Win­dow bars offer excel­lent pro­tec­tion in off the path loca­tions where your busi­ness may be locat­ed.

Pro­tect Your Home With the Pow­er of Secu­ri­ty Bars

In addi­tion to keep­ing bur­glars out of stores, an addi­tion­al ben­e­fit for par­ents is that secu­ri­ty bars can keep young chil­dren from acci­den­tal­ly falling out win­dows, espe­cial­ly if their bed­room is locat­ed on the ground floor.

While many home­own­ers fear that con­ven­tion­al secu­ri­ty bars would cause a fire haz­ard and pre­vent easy escape, mod­ern bars eas­i­ly get around these prob­lems.

Pre-equipped with quick-release mech­a­nisms, the bars can be installed and dis­man­tled from the inside with ease, while still retain­ing the dura­bil­i­ty and secu­ri­ty lev­el to pre­vent break-ins.

Base­ment win­dows are also key access points for break-ins. Quick release inte­ri­or win­dow bars are ben­e­fi­cial in this well.

Are Secu­ri­ty Bars Right For You?

To deter­mine whether your home or busi­ness may be a good can­di­date for secu­ri­ty bars, it can be help­ful to answer a few, impor­tant ques­tions. The first con­cerns the rate of bur­glary in your area. If it is cur­rent­ly high or on the rise, it is in your best inter­est to install them.

Keep in mind that extra home secu­ri­ty mea­sures are rec­om­mend­ed even in areas where crime rates are low. Bur­glars often tar­get afflu­ent neigh­bour­hoods because of the poten­tial they offer for pay­load, which is why the ques­tion of loca­tion is more rel­e­vant than what may be expect­ed.

Are the win­dows in your ground lev­el or base­ment vis­i­bly exposed, or are they con­cealed by bush­es? Do you have a neigh­bour­hood watch pro­gram, and do your local author­i­ties respond quick­ly when called? These are all things to take into con­sid­er­a­tion when decid­ing whether to install secu­ri­ty bars but are far from the only fac­tors.
