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™ adheres to strict regulations on the standard of the polycarbonate products used, purchasing these products from ISO regulated companies.
An independent test laboratory (University of Stellenbosch Institute of Structural Engineering) runs random tests on the polycarbonate products prior to the sale of ViewProtect™ Transparent Burglar Bars.
