If someone mentions security gates and grilles, the first thing you likely envision is a retail location in a shopping mall, or maybe wrought iron grids on windows in urban areas. But those aren’t the only applications for security grilles, and plain steel or iron grids aren’t the only designs they’re available in.

So, what’s the big deal about security grilles for storefronts? Here are the top 5 reasons we recommend these security installations to business owners who want to shore up security at their building in a low-maintenance, easy-to-use way:

1. Increase security from break-ins.

2. Deter vandals.

3. Lower insurance premiums.

4. Elevate your building’s appearance.

5. Customize design and use.
