Spanish Bars | Burglar bars that offer a robust security solution

Spanish burglar bars are fitted to the exterior of the home and create a cage-like effect over the window, allowing you to open your window to the outside. This burglar bar consists of rows of vertical solid-steel bars, intersected at points by horizontal bars.

The Spanish bars offer a robust security barrier over windows and openings, while bends in the bars at the top and bottom project the barrier outwards, thus allowing the windows to be opened from the inside.

The nature of outdoor exposure to the elements is such, that only the best materials and craftsmanship will be sufficient to guarantee a product that is resistant to rusting and that is long-lasting.  As a result, our burglar bars are hot-dip galvanised (coated to a thickness of approximately 80 microns) to protect against the onset of rusting, especially important in coastal areas, they are then put through a 5-stage chemical wash to ensure the steel surfaces are clean and smooth.

This is vital for the next stage when the Polyester powder coating – applied to a thickness of no less than 80 microns – thereby ensuring an enduring, even coating that doesn’t flake or peel unnecessarily over time and that is resistant to the fading effects of the sun.

Our Spanish burglar bars come with our 5-year guarantee, covering all materials and workmanship.
