Removable Window Grilles: Pros and Cons

Lead Image for Removable Window Grilles: Pros and Cons

Window grilles are becoming an increasing site on many house fronts in an era where there are more burglaries and home intrusions. People are getting more security conscious and are considering home security more than at any other time in the past.

Are Removable Window Grilles Less Safe?

Window grilles can be removable but one of the downsides to this is that they can easily be removed by the people you are actually trying to prevent from entering your home. Removable window grilles are locked in place on the inside of windows. They are held in place by a strong aluminum frame but the bars can be released quickly, especially from the inside.

What Protection do Removable Bars Offer?

Removable bars have anti-cut steel bars that are locked securely into position to protect vulnerable windows. It means that the window itself can be opened without the worry of someone entering through it. On the other hand, however, easy removal can be handy when you need to take them off to paint around them or clean the windows.

Quick-release grilles are also removable and these models can be released extremely fast. They offer highly effective protection and a great level of security. They don’t interfere with the opening and closing of the windows and can act like ‘snap on’ grilles for smaller windows in basement areas.
