Outdoor living safety in the home

2 min read

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re spending far more time in our homes than we used to. They have become multi-purpose spaces in which we work, live and play, and many of us are blessed with lovely outdoor areas in which to do all of this.

Here are some tips from Trellidor on how to enjoy these spaces safely this summer no matter what role you’re in at the time.

Mixed use spaces

The digital age has freed us up to work anywhere, so outdoor living has merged with indoor spaces. Many of us hold virtual meetings on the patio while keeping a watchful eye on children playing nearby.  Or we simply choose to work there because of the calming outside view.

Trellidor Security Shutters around the patio can be opened to reveal the lovely view. Or if we need to keep children safely confined to this area, the shutters can be closed and locked. The louvres can be tilted to see outside and allow airflow and sunlight penetration.

Closed and locked louvre shutters on the veranda keep children away from the swimming pool, passing vehicles and other dangers without you having to watch them constantly while they’re playing.

If there are no children in your household, you still get all the safety benefits of these secure shutters as well as the convenience and style of beautiful aluminium louvres while you work or relax.

Shutters around your patio ensure you enjoy this outdoor space safely at night too. The louvres can tilted by hand to control privacy levels or closed to prevent wind or rain from spoiling the evening.

Security screens do an equally good job of providing protection, but with the benefit of being completely see-through. They have additional safety attributes including blocking out monkeys or baboons and snakes. And if you live on a wildlife estate, the screens stop curious warthogs and other animals from wandering inside your home.

In areas where mosquitoes are a problem, security screens keep these insects out, making life safer and more comfortable, particularly if malaria is prevalent. Install the screens on all your doors and windows. They are see-through and you hardly know they’re there, which makes them acceptable in terms of the building regulations of many estates.

Security shutters used as window treatments in living spaces that lead out onto entertainment areas are a growing trend. They replace curtains, blinds and burglar proofing in one highly functional product that is also extremely pleasant to look at, while at the same time providing top quality security from a range of threats.

< 1 min read You may have seen these before, but not quite like this. This is not just Polycarbonate strips nailed to your windows.

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.
