Multiple Solutions for Window Security

See-through Trellidor Clear Guard mesh screens provide a high level of intruder protection while keeping out insects, regulating internal temperatures and facilitating air flow.

Windows bring air and light into a room, linking it with the world outside and reflecting the architectural appeal of the structure. They also make buildings vulnerable to various intrusions. Trellidor offers an innovative collection of window protection solutions to address this problem.

Aluminium louvres

Versatile louvre shutters act as curtains, blinds, and burglar proofing in one classy product. Trellidor offers two elegant designs, one with reinforced louvres, engineered for high level protection, the other a well-priced, strong ‘estate’ shutter.

Both designs are fitted with patented locks that can be used from either side for extra protection. They are clutter-free, with no external operating mechanisms. Louvres are hand-tilted to control airflow, light, and privacy.

Clear Guard

See-through Trellidor Clear Guard mesh screens solve multiple problems. They keep out insects and animals and provide a high level of intruder protection. The mesh regulates internal temperatures, facilitates air flow, and blocks out harsh UV rays.

Trellidor has several ranges at different price points. All are fitted with patented locks and can be customised for any type of window and building style.

Polycarbonate Bars

Polycarbonate bars are virtually invisible. They allow light and fresh air penetration and stop monkeys and baboons from getting into buildings. The Trellidor design has a full aluminium frame and internal strengthening mechanisms, to make this a popular solution for windows in low to medium crime risk areas.

Burglar Guard

Affordable protection for windows is in demand for medium to low-cost housing projects and schools requiring protection at a lower price point. Trellidor Burglar Guard offers three designs, all semi-framed, tamper proofed and professionally installed.

This product can be powder coated to match building colour palettes. Units can be fitted internally, externally, face-on, in the reveal, horizontally or vertically, depending on specifications.

Cottage Guard

Trellidor Cottage Guard is the gold standard in strong burglar proofing due to unique internal strengthening structures. It matches cottage pane windows or creates a cottage pane effect for other window styles. The units are fully framed and installed without welding, so there are no weak points in terms of corrosion.

The current trend for over-sized, continental style black aluminium cottage pane windows can make buildings vulnerable to crime, but they can be protected with matching Cottage Guard burglar bars.

Rolling shutters

Holiday homes, offices and other premises frequently left vacant are extremely exposed to break-ins. Trellidor Rollerstyle shutters, either manual or automated, are an excellent solution for windows and doors, providing a complete lockdown when closed.
