Safety at home

by Vanesa Diaz

Home is where the heart is, and everyone deserves to feel safe at home. It is where your family lives, your pets are and where you keep your most precious belongings. Therefore, security at home is always at the forefront of most people's minds. But a home should still feel like a home. No one wants to come home to a house with barred windows, security cameras watching your every move and a 4 digit security code just to get into your own home.

Security screens are a newly developed, unobtrusive form of security. Whilst other forms of security offer elaborate and complex systems more at home in a science fiction movie, with a budget to match, security screening is simple and affordable. A fine, metal mesh that can be custom cut to fit any window is fitted to the frame supporting the glass. Easily able to resist attacks from baseball bats, crow bars or bricks, it offers a great form of protection.

The mesh is fine enough to stop it from blocking any light, and harder to get through than any unsightly metal bars across windows. The overall effect is simply that the window is slightly tinted. After all, this is a home that you are trying to protect, and no one wants unsightly or intrusive security measures around your house. People should be able to enjoy their home as a home, and not feel as if they are trapped inside. With security screening, this is all possible.

To further help save money, you can even fit security screening yourself. Fitting over the top of windows, it only takes a few screws to get them securely mounted in place. You can fit them in your own time, where you want them, however you might want them. All of this allows you to take securing your own house into your own hands.

Security screening use doesn't have to stop at home either. Perhaps you have a garage, with your prized car, motorbike or push bikes? Fitting some security screening over any windows will not only stop people from being able to see in from a distance, but make it almost impossible to get through the windows. Or you have an office, where a break in could spell disaster if you were to lose all your hard work with the simple theft of your computers. 

On top of all these features, security screening also keeps out any unwanted guests from nature. As they are fitted over the top of windows, you are free to leave the window open without worrying about anything getting in. Simply put, security screening is a cost effective way of better enabling you to enjoy your own house, without any added pressure.
