Snuggle up safely behind doors this winter with Trellidor


Winter seems to have crept in overnight and with it has come the dark. Many of us get up before daylight and return home to darkness at the end of the day, when personal security becomes a problem.

It’s bad enough grappling with keys, brief case, handbag and groceries at the front door in poor light. One doesn’t want to also worry about who might be waiting on the other side of the door.

Ferdi Pieterse of Trellidor Port Elizabeth South recommends that local residents take advantage of Trellidor winter specials to tick off a few more items on their home security lists and avoid these worrying security situations. 

He suggests:

  • Burglar proofing windows that aren’t already secured. Robbers will make a plan to get through any window, no matter how small or inaccessible it looks to you, so get these done now at a reduced rate.
  • Installing security barriers to protect doors that are currently unprotected.  Perhaps you only have a security gate on your front and back doors. Now’s the time to install burglar proofing on other doors such as those leading out to the patio or between the garage and the house.
  • Create a safe zone by getting a security gate or shutter put into your passage, at the top of your stairs or your bedroom. Make sure you get barriers fitted to all the windows in this zone too, and that one or more of them can open up as an emergency exit.
  • Install automated roller shutters that are solar powered. Eskom has promised that we won’t have any load shedding this winter, but they can’t guarantee that there won’t be any unexpected power outages due to over-loading of the grid.
