Window Grilles & Gate
Some said installing window grilles in your house is like converting your home into a prison as you will feel caged-in. Truly, if you are staying on high floors and without windows grilles installed, you would have an unblocked view of the expanse of the sky, you can also enjoy the enchanting view of the stars at night and the ever changing clouds formation any time of the day as well as the breath-taking city view from afar. However, if there are young children
at home, installing windows grilles is no longer an option; indeed you must install windows grilles to keep your children safe lest they wander near the windows. Seriously, you can’t watch the children at all times hence it is only wise to be safe than to be sorry. Furthermore, if you are staying in landed homes or on low floors or even on high floors where there is a possibility of access via windows e.g. your unit is situated along common corridors, having
window grilles is probably the only of keeping intruders away.
Next, installing gates is definitely a must in all households. Gates serve as an effective deterrent for any potential intruders. For landed properties, there would be driveway gate and gates in front of each door i.e. the main and back door. For non-landed properties, gates should be installed to accompany the door for security reasons too. Besides, having gate facilitates your interaction with strangers who may come knocking at your door and yet
without compromising your safety as you are guarded from the danger of them entering into your premises. Furthermore, having gates allow you to leave your main door open for the breeze and ventilation in your home and yet without the fear of strangers entering your home anytime.
