Why ViewProtect is your best choice in security

Polycarbonate Burglar Bars

Polycarbonate (clear) burglar bars have become the new solution to security systems in South Africa. With that being said, this new trend has taken South Africa by a storm. Are you looking to upgrade your security system? Are you feeling overwhelmed with the different options and suppliers to choose from? Let us help you make an informed decision.

In this blog, we are going to have a glance at the following:


Polycarbonate burglar bar manufacturing

The clear burglar bars are manufactured from polycarbonate that is a thermoplastic polymer that is a high impact product with incredible strength that supplies a strong physical barrier.

Used globally for police riot shields, bullet-resistant windows and airplane windows is polycarbonate. Another benefit of the polycarbonate is that it improves the all-important aesthetics of a property and supplies the feelings of safeness and freedom within one’s home.

As they have been the norm for years criminals have found more and more ways to get through security barriers. Although polycarbonate is a strong thermoplastic, it may be vulnerable to certain chemicals. An intruder may also gain entry by melting it. That is why we recommend that these transparent bars are to be used in gated communities and where low-security protection is required.


Our Partners

ViewProtect adheres to strict regulations on the standard of the polycarbonate products used, purchasing these products from ISO regulated companies.

ViewProtect has, therefore, joined forces with one of Africa’s best safety and security glass designers and manufacturers, Rene Turck. We also negotiated the exclusive supply rights for the advanced LEXAN® polycarbonate within the transparent security barrier industry in South Africa.

What makes our clear burglar bars different?

To drastically improve these polycarbonate products, we have designed and developed a proudly South African product called Armed Bars. Armed Bars combine the polycarbonate burglar bar and an alarm monitoring system into one to introduce the ultimate physical barrier.

This unique product will not only supply an aesthetically pleasing barrier, but it also has an integrated 24/7 active alarm. Armed Bars counter the possible weakness of the polycarbonate. Now, the home/business owner can have peace of mind by having permanent alarmed protection.

No other supplier in South Africa has a transparent burglar bar with an integrated alarm system. Why is that? ViewProtect Armed Bars is an internationally patented product. The uniqueness of our Armed Bars is that we have ingeniously combined two different security products to form a vital security product. What makes this even more revolutionary? The weakness of the one product is strengthened by the other product’s properties.

We will have a more in-depth look at our Armed Bars in another article.

Are you now more informed? Hopefully, you now have a clearer understanding of the difference between our clear burglar bars and the other suppliers.
