Window Security Grilles or Window Roller Shutters

Window Security Grilles

Window Security Grilles and window roller shutters really offer that edge when it comes to high security. They are sure to deter even the most professional burglar. If you are feeling uneasy about your window security and want to ensure it is the best it can be this is the route to take.

We have some customers who request domestic roller shutters or window security shutters. For commercial properties these can be ideal however when it comes to residential properties I usually recommend security grilles for windows. The main reason is that roller shutters require a rather large storage space when open and can look unsightly. In most cases roller shutters are likely to have a negative impact on the look of a residential property. Window security grilles on the other hand can actually enhance the look of the property. Georgian grilles are a good example, when lined up well with the leads of the window they are very discreet and almost invisible. This requires an experienced professional. We are well versed on Georgian grilles fitting in London. The images below show how slick they can look whilst providing high levels of security.

At IKS Locksmiths we pride ourselves on installing bespoke security grilles in North London which not only offer high security but also complement and add aesthetic value to a property. We feel that this is of the upmost importance when it comes to residential properties.

I have had many customers who say that the grilles we have installed have actually enhanced the look of the property. We achieve this by putting a lot of thought and consideration into the design of the grilles. All aspects of each window security grille are given careful consideration;

  • Measurements – they must be precise and accurate
  • Types – fixed or collapsible grilles
  • Style – discreet or decorative
  • Colour – black, white or other
  • Design – tailored to the property and requirements

All of these aspects are tailored specifically to the customers’ needs. They are all crucial to the look of the finished product.

We do have some customers who are unsure about security grilles for windows at first but when we show them our portfolio of past projects they can actually become very enthusiastic about the idea.

There is nothing more rewarding for us than to have a customer who is delighted with the look of their security grilles as well as the high level of security it offers them.

Last week we fitted these grilles in a property in Hampstead Garden Suburb and as you can see from the images they actually enhance the look of the room.


These grilles were fitted in Golders Green. We aligned the bars with the window beading and it is hard to tell the difference in the before and after image!
