Three new security products from Trellidor

Trellidor’s new Estate Shutter is an affordable shutter that does not compromise on strength or style.

Security barrier manufacturer Trellidor has launched two new cost-effective products designed for homes in eco-estates, golf estates, cluster housing and gated communities and one, a rolling shutter, aimed at facilities that require exceptionally strong protection.

Proudly South African Lockdown Shutter

“Our new Lockdown Shutter provides extraordinary strength combined with built-in safety features. It’s a first for South Africa in that the non-mechanical locking system does not rely on the motor, so it functions even during power outages,” said Trellidor Marketing and Sales Director Peter Rawson.

This roller shutter has a neat appearance and offers outstanding strength under attack. It is the perfect protection for facilities such as pharmaceutical storage facilities, safe zones within commercial or residential buildings, data storage rooms and other sensitive installations.

The shutters are fully motorised and operated by a hand-held remote control. Once closed, any attempt to lift the shutter with vertical force tightens it further into the closed position, making it impossible to lift even with a forklift.

A manual override crank handle is provided for emergency opening and shutters are fitted with an obstacle detection system to prevent accidental locking.


Customised Estate Shutters

“We’ve also introduced an Estate Shutter that looks similar to our popular louvred Security Shutter. The main difference is that it has been engineered for lower crime risk areas such as homes in secure estate where access is tightly controlled. It is an affordable shutter that does not compromise on strength or style,” said Peter.

“Our product engineers have paid attention to details such as colour coded hardware, hidden strengthening mechanisms, uniform frames across all configurations and a variety of bottom tracks to suit different installations to make this a versatile and cost-effective window and door solution.”


Barely-there Estate Clear Guard

Trellidor introduced Clear Guard see-through security mesh screens to the South African market over 10 years ago. It has proven to be a winner for projects requiring protection that is virtually invisible and has a multitude of uses like blocking out insects and other wildlife, filtering UV rays and intense heat to reduce internal temperatures and allowing fresh air to flow inside.

“We’ve now expanded this range to include an Estate Clear Guard hinged design that is reasonably priced, multi-purpose and good-looking. It has a neat aluminium frame and a see-through mesh insert.  As expected of all Trellidor products, it has built-in strengthening features, enhanced by a Trellidor locking system. Other configurations are being added to the Estate Range as we develop them,” said Peter.
