The pros of expandable security gates

Expandable security gates – otherwise known as retractable, concertina, collapsing, folding, expanding, trellis, scissor or stacking security gates – refer to a metal security gate design that can be expanded to close (and lock) or stacked aside to leave an entrance open. These gates are usually secured within a top and bottom track system and often lock automatically when slammed shut. It’s no wonder these gates are one of the most popular and practical ways to secure doors (and other building openings) in South Africa. In this article, we take a quick look at some of the pros of installing one of these in your home or office space.

4 pros of expandable security gates

1. Security

The most obvious pro of installing any gate is that it provides another layer of security to keep the bad guys out and your loved ones safe. Not only that, but the deadlock slamlock system and tamper-proof locking channel (that should come standard) offers you a quick way to put up a secure barrier in urgent situations. For example, if a burglar enters your home or office space whilst someone is there, it’s important for them to get immediate protection by escaping to a designated safety zone as soon as possible.

2. Customisation

Another pro is that they can be custom-made to fit any entrance size whether it’s a front door, patio sliding door, hallway, window, shop front or even a serving hatch. Take a closer look at these 6 places trellis security gates can be installed

3. Investment

Installing security is an investment into your home or business space. In South Africa, the more secure a property is, the more appealing it is for future buyers. In addition, more security means that you pay less for insurance.

4. Invisible

A unique pro of expandable security gates is that they’re there when you need them and gone when you don’t. When you don’t need them, they’re “invisible” – no one wants to feel as if they’re living or working in a jail. Here are some other “invisible security” ideas.
