At Shutterway we understand that every home’s design is unique and the functionality required for various elements within your home needs to be flexible, which why we offer exceptional burglar bars configuration.
That’s why we’ve made sure that our solid steel, louvred burglar bars come in a variety of configurations. This means that Shutterway burglar bars have the ability to satisfy your specific needs in terms of look, feel and functionality of the various windows placed throughout your home.
At Shutterway we’re usually requested to fit fully-fixed burglar bars, where each side of the burglar proofing unit is secured into the brickwork. However, some homeowners prefer to go for burglar bars that have the ability to open when unlocked from the inside in case of an emergency when a window-exit is required. The good news is that we fit both types of units.
Bi-fold burglar bars
The bi-fold configuration works off a of a system where the unit’s two panels are fixed into the brickwork on one side only. Both panels hinge in the same direction and the entire unit has the ability to swing on the hinges.
Double-opening burglar bars
This type of security unit has two panels, each fixed into the brickwork and hinge out (or in) from the middle. The direction of the hinge varies from window to window depending on what makes sense both practically and aesthetically.
