Alphagrille | Burglar proofing to protect your property

Our single upright Alphagrille burglar bars are fitted with a four-sided frame for extra security and a neater finish. This option offers superior strength and complements the Alphador range of retractable doors. This single upright is larger than the single upright used in the Magnagrille burglar bar.  The design offers the same style as that of the retractable doors but is instead comprised of fixed burglar bars encased in a steel frame.

The Alphagrille offers the strength and rigidity commensurate with a thicker 16mm x 16mm, 1.2mm gauge steel bar. Alphagrille is ideally suited for high risk industrial areas where higher levels of security are required to protect property against would-be intruders. The use of Alphagrille burglar proofing bars, in conjunction with a similarly robust security gate such as the Alphador, is sure to create a formidable all-round security barrier no weaker than its constituent parts.

All Alphagrille burglar bars, as with our retractable security gates, come with our 5-year guarantee that covers materials and workmanship.

Alphagrille burglar bars are hot dip galvanised for protection from the onset of rust, and Polyester powder coated for superior resistance to the fading effects of the sun.
