An almost invisible security barrier

August 2014 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Integrated Solutions

Security products are developed to cater for persons wishing to purchase sufficient time to activate their personal security plan in order to protect both themselves and their family.

Traditionally, for it to be possible to move around in your house or office, you are required to deactivate your alarm system. With insufficient warning, you become vulnerable and are placed at risk of becoming overpowered by intruders.

The ViewProtect ClearTrellis, made from polycarbonate allows for innovative security barriers that have little impact on the aesthetic value of a property. These transparent retractable security gates will also protect your property value by removing the prisonlike appearance of metal gates.

With the installation of the ClearTrellis you will have an unspoiled view even when the gate is opened since the gate stacks unobtrusively to the side of the door when open. There are matching security barriers also available for windows and other openings that need physical protection against intruders.

The ViewProtect Armed Bar is unique in that two different security technologies, namely an alarm system and transparent physical barrier, have been combined. The shortcomings of each technology is considerably strengthened by the combination of the two. The ClearTrellis Armed options has the capacity to be connected to an active alarm system, providing a 24/7 active alarm protection while not diminishing valuable views. The result is a vastly superior security product and an unmatched advantage.

The ClearTrellis gates are available in both Standard and Armed Bar configurations and are all custom manufactured according to each customer’s needs.
