Clear Burglar Bars Quote: Measurement Steps

  1. First, decide if you need to cover only the opening windows or all the glass panels.
  2. Make sure you have adequate fifing space on the window frame when doing a direct fit or EziBar installation. Your window frame should provide you at least 20mm if you will do a direct fit safety bar or 25mm if you would like to fit the EziBar option. If you require the ALuRail option you need to have at least 60mm reveal (brickwork) space on the side of the window frame.
  3. First, take the bar length measurement (normally it’s wall to wall from left to right when installing bars horizontally) and then you need to take the gap (height) measurement. If you consider a direct fit or EziBar fitment option you will take the gap measurement of the daylight opening – this means the physical opening height that needs to be covered. Considering the AluRail fitment option you will measure from the lintel to the cill of the window.
  4. If your bar length is more than 1m, you need to allow for cross-sections. Please see our crossbar section on the website for more information or contact our support team at 0861 444 789
  5. Take a photo of the window if possible and send it with your measurements. Make sure the photos are clearly marked to match your measurements.
