Security Grilles for Windows
Retractable Security Grilles for Windows are fast becoming one of the most common forms of domestic home and commercial physical security in the UK. This is due to a number of reasons including the unfortunate levels of crime in the UK, the high level of security offered by high quality steel grilles and their unobtrusive yet stylish nature when both open and closed. A physical deterrent is better than a burglar alarm which only sounds once a forced entry has been made already. Stop the intruder from entering in the first place!!
Despite the various other ways of being able to protect your windows, internal retractable security grilles are emerging as the popular choice alongside window and door security shutters and removable window bars.
Window and Door Security Shutters appear to be the most safest security product for windows however their quality fluctuates when working with a budget and looking to save money. An additional inconvenience is the fact that it comes with a shutterbox that must be displayed on either the interior or exterior of the building; this can prove to be an additional pain when looking to retain the aesthetically pleasing look of your home. On top of that, they provide very little transparency even with the addition of window sections or punched/perforated slats so could leave rooms in darkness when closed. You can usually open a window with the security grille still closed and functional for security.
Retractable Security Grille Range
Window Bars offer similar levels of visibility to Security Grilles however they take a lot longer to remove. Window Bars are installed into a permanently fixed top and bottom rail system and require a key to unlock before individually removing each and every single bar - a highly laborious and arduous task when dealing with large windows!
With an Internal Security Window Grille and their smooth retractable system, there is no need to install a large shutterbox to hide the frame when closed nor do they take long to close either. Security Grilles from Samson Doors can be manually retracted within seconds.
A Security Grille Is A No Hassle Solution To Window Security!
Security Grilles for Windows require a simple installation. Installing a security grille can take as little as 45 minutes to fully install to compliant standards. When installing a security grille, they can be installed to either the face of the wall or inbetween the structural opening. When closed, the grille sashes retract to the side where they are neatly bunched and remain almost totally out of view, especially if curtains are fitted as they can retracte behind these.
The Security Grilles supplied by Samson Doors are constructed using strong galvanised steel which is then powder coated to give an attractive colour finish. Not only does this offer fantastic security but it is also attractive unlike many other domestic security products on the market.

The plan view layout for a security grille is as shown below, either face fitted or reveal fitted:
Face Fitting a Security Grille
The lift up hinged bottom track is generally for doorways only and only when there is a level floor already and the tracking would cause a trip hazard.
Reveal Fitting a Security Grille
The lift up hinged folding track shown is optional in all cases and only really used on doorways where there is constant traffic and there is a level floor present before the installation of the grille. Obviously this is to avoid any trip hazard.
Whe installing inbetween an opening the size of the 'bunch' size is calculated as per the chart below:
