Metal Security Bars For Windows
Owning a home or a business in an area where break-ins are a common occurrence means you must take extra steps to protect your property from would-be thieves or vandals. When a thief breaks into a home or a business one of the most common entry points is an unsecured window. Metal window bars or “burglar bars” or “security bars” as they are often called are designed to prevent entry into your structure if someone should try and smash a window for entry.

What You Need To Know About Installing Window Security Bars
#1. If you’re installing window security bars on a storefront or a business you might have very large windows that need to be secured. Typically these windows don’t open and are not needed as an emergency exit so a fixed window bar system is the best choice. It’s important to choose a window bar with good structural integrity. These are typically window bars made with 3/8″ solid square bars or 1/2″ tubular steel. Window bars are available in different styles and they can also be color matched to your building or exterior finishes if you’d like.
#2. If you’re installing window bars onto your home it’s important to understand the impact on the occupants inside your home. In the event of an emergency you might want the window bars to be able to be opened from inside of your structure. This is especially so if you’re installing the window bars on a bedroom window. In the event of a fire or other emergency the occupants need to be able to escape.
