ViewProtect Standard Transparent Burglar Bars is available through our Certified Installers or as DIY product, which can be purchased from a ViewProtect Distributor or can be ordered through our Cut-2-Size option.

ViewProtect has developed the standard clear bar product, to supply to clients who need these products for safety or who are not security conscious and do not want to connect their bars to an alarm system and/or would prefer to install the product themselves.

Standard transparent bars are used for:

  • Security – burglar bars
  • Safety
    • Protect children from falling from windows
    • Keep unwanted animals out (Baboons & Monkeys)
    • Balustrading

ViewProtect has a strong national network of distributors that retail these products to the consumer. These retailers currently service all the major city centres in South Africa. We have seen a definite growth trend in the DIY market developing. This is due to the fact that our consumer friendly DIY kit has been positively received by the market. In addition, the international recession has forced many consumers to opt to spend money on a DIY product, instead of the more expensive supply and fit option.

No special training is necessary, due to the user friendly installation procedures included in the DIY packaging and more advanced instructions to maximise your installation can be viewed on our website. ViewProtect standard transparent burglar bars are available in 6 and 8 mm thickness.


WARNING: If security is important to you and your family we strongly recommend that you install ViewProtect Armed Bars.

Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic and is vulnerable to be weakened by chemicals and can be MELTED to gain access through these bars. Therefore it’s critical that a 24/7 alarm protection needs to be added to your transparent burglar bars. By introducing the 24/7 alarm protection in our transparent burglar bars we have countered the possible weaknesses of polycarbonate.

Armed Burglar BarsArmed Product


ViewProtect has outpaced its competitors by developing and patenting a transparent burglar bar with an integrated alarm sensor – Armed Bar.

This product can be connected to any alarm system. This unique Smart Bar Technology makes it possible to protect the home owner with a 24/7 active alarm system, in addition to having a transparent physical barrier. This technology also allows the homeowner, for the first time, to have the opportunity to fully utilise their alarm system by having a permanent perimeter protection while he is moving around in the home. This allows the homeowner freedom to open and close and also clean the windows and bars. No more false alarms caused by accidental human errors, plants, insects, animals, etc.

False alarms cost the security companies millions of Rand each year. ViewProtect Armed Bars are designed to limit, as far as possible, any false alarms.

This has had a major influence on the level of interest we have received from security companies. By significantly reducing the number of false alarms, security companies will not only save money on unproductive reaction calls, but will also be able to provide a faster reaction time due to availability of services. 

Some of the advantages of ViewProtect's Armed Bars: 

  • Works with all alarm systems
  • 24/7 alarm & physical protection
  • Always active even when windows are open
  • Permanent armed zone at windows & security doors
  • No more accidental false alarms
  • Insect proof
  • Tamper resistant
  • Wires are invisible
  • Corrosion free

ViewProtect AluRail 

Armed Product


Standard Product, not armed


AluRail AluRail sag 6344  

The AluRail is a specialised extruded aluminium channel, designed to accommodate the polycarbonate bars.

The ViewProtect AluRail system was originally designed for the European market that required a secure fixing for security bars on the outside of the windows due to windows opening to the inside. During our testing period we identified that the AluRail will improve the aesthetical look of the fixtures, and more importantly, improve our fixing strength with up to 28%.

The fixing of the polycarbonate bars are the weakest point of the installation and therefore we recommend to use the AluRail fixing option to give the strongest fitment possible.

The AluRail system can be used for the standard bars as well as the incomparably Armed Bars connections.

The AluRail benefits are as follow:  

  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Stronger fitment due to clamping of the bars between AluRail sides
  • AluRail and bars form a solid unit
  • No fixtures or wires visible
  • Can be premanufactured before installation
  • No more holes in window frames required
  • Bars receive tension during installation
  • HotLock can be installed

ViewProtect HotLock

Armed Product

During a fire or when trespassers enter your home or office, an escape route is crucial to avoid been trapped and overwhelmed. ViewProtect developed the Hotlock that will allow the inhabitants to escape the scene and move to an area of safety.
These Hotlock units form part of the security barrier and fixes the transparent burglar bars to the AluRail frame. The rapid unlocking mechanism allows the occupants to remove the bar and bend the bars away to allow exit.
