Do Security Grilles work? – A tried and tested example

It’s everyones worst fear, whether at a commercial premises or a domestic property, the last thing you want is to be broken into.

Burglaries can often leave you with the headache of insurance companies to deal with, replacing stolen good and sometimes even building repairs. They also leave victims with an unshaken feeling of apprehension, nervous of a repeat incident.

We were recently called out to a customer for whom we had installed retractable gates back in 2013. This customer had an industrial unit and had needed security for the windows to provide an anti burglary deterrent and strengthen the overall protection on the building. Unfortunately Fourmasters Ltd in Wolverhampton were recently the victims of an attempted break in, a break in that was foiled by their retractable gates!

The attempted break in.

A crowbar has been used to try and gain entry however this was to no avail! The burglar inevitably got frustrated and ended up leaving empty handed, this is what we like to see. Other than a relatively small amount of damage to the gates from the attempted forced entry, Fourmasters escaped unscathed

The security grilles put up a brilliant fight and won!

We contacted Fourmasters Ltd to see what they thought of the experience:

After the modernisation of the outside front section of our current premises we decide to have new security grilles to maintain the modern appearance. We found West Midlands Shutters to be competitive with a friendly service & opted to have their shutters supplied & fit.

Service was quick, with the minimal amount of fuss & the grilles are not over imposing in the office environment.

Unfortunately a few months later we were targets of an attempted break in at 2 points on our premises, where the new grilles had been fit. Thankfully they stood up to the attack as expected & did a great job stopping the intruder/intruders. Mark Cox, Fourmasters Ltd.
