Safety and Security

According to Stats SA’s report in Dec 2020, housebreakings remain to be one of the most common crimes in South Africa. Victims of housebreakings are quite often left with having to pick up the pieces of their lives, not only due to the loss of personal possessions, but even worse, due to the sense of violation after such an ordeal.

Glass and Allied are passionate about encouraging all South Africans to make every effort to prevent potential loss and trauma – inevitable for all housebreaking survivors. Which is why we are proud to always recommend and use the legal glass-thickness of 6.38mm or more for all of our door installations.

Prevent Invasion and Burglary by Fitting a Nitelock to Your Aluminium Sliding Patio Doors

Protect your loved ones and possessions with added security when installing a Nitelock which functions as barricade for entry/exit point aluminium sliding doors.

Once installed and securely anchored to the internal floors of your building, our Nitelocks actually use the strength of the floor to create a powerful resistance against attempts at forced entry. Potential invaders are instantly deterred once a Nitelock is spotted, due to it being nearly impossible to dismount the sliding door from its rail. You can have peace of mind at night or while you’re away, knowing that your Nitelock increases the security of your loved ones and belongings.

In addition, Nitelocks have been designed to unlock extremely quickly and easily, therefore allow for little to no obstruction during an emergency exit situation.
