TIPS FOR SAFE HOLIDAYS. Trellidor
“With the holiday season fast approaching, we could all do with some tips on how to make it a much-needed safe and happy time. “Like our customers, the Trellidor team have families and we use these ideas ourselves,” said Shaun Erasmus, Trellidor Business Support Manager.
CHECK YOUR CURRENT SECURITY
A home is one of the biggest assets we’ll own in our lives and is worth looking after. Security should be an integral part of home maintenance, so call in a Trellidor expert to give you an assessment of current security measures. “Often there are weaknesses that we don’t see, but that an outsider trained in this area will notice. We will do a full check-up of your security and make recommendations as to how you can upgrade it as cost effectively as possible,” said Shaun.
PLAN FOR IMPROVEMENTS
If there is a lot to be done to make your home safer, plan a list of priorities to work through over time. Start with the most vulnerable areas, such as ground floor windows and doors that lead outside. Your Trellidor consultant can help you decide on what to do first. Then order your products in time for installation before the annual shutdown. There is always a rush for security products at year end, when people realise they need to do something to prevent break-ins before they go on holiday so get in early.
If you’re holidaying at home this year, there are a few points to be aware of. Firstly, make sure you use your security barriers. All too often we leave doors and security gates open when home. Keep the gates locked so that you don’t get caught unawares. Secondly, consider installing see-through security barriers in your entertainment area. These are products that bring you close to your garden or sea view even when they’re closed and locked. Try Trellidor Clear Guard screens, framed Polycarbonate bars or louvre shutters with added internal strengthening measures that turn them into strong security. “You’ll feel far more relaxed at home as you are not so aware that you are surrounded by burglar proofing,” said Shaun.
NEW SHOWROOM STOCKED WITH HOME IMPROVEMENT PRODUCTS
Shaun and his team have moved into a new showroom at 99 Umhlanga Rocks Drive. It is stocked with Trellidor products as well as window blinds and shutters from our sister company, Taylor Blinds. Plus, we have beautiful decorative mouldings such as skirtings and wall panels from associate company NMC. “Come and enjoy a cup of Colombo coffee with us and we’ll share more holiday security tips and home improvement ideas,” said Shaun.
