Advantages of our Cottage Pane Burglar Bars:

  • No unsightly screws or bolts

No screws or bolts are used; the vertical and horizontal bars are drilled straight into the surrounding reveal for maximum strength. This leaves nothing for the burglar to use to their advantage, and offers a neater, more secure finish compared to the traditional screwed-on or bolted-in burglar bar systems.

  • No welding joints

There is no welding involved with cottage pane burglar bars – one of the main advantages of Cottage Pane Bars!

  • Fits together like a puzzle

All the bars used for cottage pane burglar bars are separate. Once all the holes are drilled in the reveal, the cottage pane burglar bars are fitted like a puzzle. Piece by piece, the bars are assembled onsite. The vertical bars slide through the horizontal bars for maximum strength and neatness. Each end of the vertical and horizontal bars is fitted into the wall. This creates a secure system that makes it extremely difficult for a would-be burglar.

  • Cottage pane burglar bars follow existing windowpanes

Where there are existing window pane frames, the cottage pane burglar bars will be aligned with them. The rest of the bars are spaced out equally to create a neater appearance, or in the case of actual cottage windowpane frames, can be aligned to match the frame lattice. This means that the bar spacing will hardly be noticeable and more pleasing on the eye.

  • Creates a feature of the window (where cottage panes do not exist)

Once the cottage pane burglar bars have been installed, it creates an authentic cottage-type feature in the window and adds to the style of the house. Cottage pane bars suit all homes, offices and factories.

  • No unsightly frames used

Standard cottage pane bars do not require unsightly frames. Being a frameless system, it creates a secure fitting straight into the surrounds.

  • Competitively priced

Cottage pane bars are very well priced compared to other more intrusive burglar bar systems.
