Two out of Three Burglaries are Residential

Whether you are looking to protect a residence or a commercial building, we can find a solution for you.

According to FBI crime statistics (, 2/3rds of all burglaries are committed on residential dwellings. About half of them take place during the day. Burglaries tend to be closely correlated with unemployment rates. In times of rising unemployment, you can expect an increasing number of burglaries.

Most Vulnerable: Doors and Windows

According to statistics, 79% of intrusions happen through windows and doors. Securing these vulnerable areas of entry should be your number one priority in break-in prevention. Please find a wide selection of products that help protect windows and doors in our products section.

Prevention instead of Reduction

Home Alarm Systems are good way to reduce the amount of damage. These systems deter, after a burglar enters your house through a window or door. Intruders might be stopped or the time they spend in your home is reduced. Significant damage has already been done. A door or window was penetrated. Repair bills alone could be upward of a $1000. Plus whatever the thief grabs on his way out. Security shutters are a visible deterrent, that provide a physical barrier. 

Shutters can be locked with extra locking mechanism, such as bolt locks or key locks

Another option that is available are so called End-Retention Systems. These increase the security even more by putting retention bolts on the ends of the slats, making it nearly impossible to gain access. Our latest development, the Security Slat: features another interesting option: Perforations. This allows us to create a protective barrier, but with the option to let light into the room. These perforated slats can be fitted with the optional End-Retention. You can choose to have all slats or only a part of the curtain to be perforated.
