How to support estate aesthetic guidelines and homeowner alteration applications

Homeowners that buy into estates generally understand that there are strict architectural and building guidelines. These are designed to maintain harmony in home design and with the surrounding environment as well as the standard of the estate.

There are, however, instances when they may apply to bend the rules to accommodate problems that they’re experiencing living on the estate. These problems could range from snakes that wander dangerously close to homes on eco-estates or coastal homes; to mosquitoes that are irritating to live with; annoying petty theft by casual workers; or simply a need for privacy within their own home.

One way of dealing with these requests is to approve products that can be installed inside the homes rather than attached to the exterior. In this way, problems are solved without violating any regulations, building codes or unity in design.

Trellidor has developed a range of products that differ in style and function but assist in providing a solution for homeowners as well as estate management. Trellidor franchises around the country are well placed to work with management and provide a package of approved products that add value to homes and comply with the estate concept.

Here are three products to consider as part of this type of package:

  1. Trellidor Security Shutter

These are aluminium louvre shutters that are custom-made for doors and windows. They can be used internally as beautiful window treatments in place of curtains, blinds and burglar bars. When closed, the shutters block out monkeys and baboons. By tilting the louvres by hand, homeowners can control the level of privacy, air flow and light penetration into their homes. From outside the home, they look like beautiful shutters and they complement any style of architecture.

  1. Trellidor Clear Guard

These framed mesh screens are ideal for eco-estates, coastal homes and any estate where mosquitoes, snakes and other wildlife could potentially become a nuisance to homeowners. They are see-through, neat and barely noticeable from the outside looking in. They assist with internal climate control and provide protection from any type of intruder. The screens are fully framed and manufactured in a wide variety of formats to suit any specified window or door style as well as outdoor living areas.

  1. Trellidor Polycarbonate Bar

Polycarbonate bars are popular in areas where monkeys and baboons are an on-going intrusion. The bars are virtually invisible and have no negative impact on the guidelines for homes on the estate. Most products on the market, however, do not add value to high end estates as they have not been attractively designed. Trellidor has re-engineered this product by framing the Polycarbonate bars on all four sides in aluminium. The construction of the entire unit is neat and strong.

Estate management teams are welcome to contact Trellidor to discuss options that would suit their developments as well as the homeowners.

Trellidor

Trellidor is a proudly South African company that manufactures, designs and distributes security gates and window burglar proofing. Some of our burglar bar designs are still best sellers 40 years after we launched them. The top-end models in this range have been internationally certified for their strength.

Trellidor Clear Guard features

< 1 min read These are sophisticated woven steel mesh panels inside a neat frame, so discreet that you hardly notice they’re there. You can see right through the mesh screen and it allows some airflow into your home.

Trellidor Retractable Security features

< 1 min read All Trellidor security barriers are custom-made to fit the opening and its specific requirements, so there is no standard price. Trellidor security barriers are available through authorised Trellidor franchises countrywide and they will gladly measure the opening and give a quotation.

Trellidor Polycarbonate Bar features

< 1 min read You may have seen these before, but not quite like this. This is not just Polycarbonate strips nailed to your windows. The Trellidor version is fully framed and attached to the wall inside the window reveal for a neat, strong fit. It is satisfyingly refined and barely there, keeping the monkeys out and protecting you from petty theft through your windows too.

Trellidor Cottage Guard features

< 1 min read These do verge on looking like conventional burglar proofing. But they’re worth a mention because they can be made to match cottage pane windows perfectly. This means that the gap sizes will be the same as your windows, so you can’t see the Cottage Guard at all. They’re immensely strong burglar bars and excellent for high crime risk windows.

Trellidor Rollerstyle Shutter features

< 1 min read Manual and automated rolling shutters that are completely invisible when you don’t need them. Made from aluminium, they have a slim profile and don’t require a bottom track so there is no cutting into your floor.

Trellidor Security Shutter features
