These security bars are fully framed on all four sides which increases their strength. They are made from aluminium or steel and offer protection for both windows and non-opening doors such as patio doors or door sized windows. When the fixed security gates are made, they are manufactured with in-built strengthening features which gives them maximum security for low to high-risk locations.

Like the retractable security gates, they are many options to choose from depending on what your preference is, your security risk profile, and your budget restrictions.

The fixed security gates are also high quality and during the manufacturing process, they undergo a pre-treatment process for corrosion and UV resistance. You are able to pick whether you want the security gate to be fitted internally or externally too liked Retractable Security Gates.

Having the gate fitted internally is always the better option as it provides better security. When burglars try to enter your business, they first have to break the door or window which will be noisy and will alert security systems of danger; discouraging burglars from trying to break in.
