AluRail and EziBars can be made to custom-fit any entry point and are prepared before installation on site. Once the bars are fitted into the AluRail or EziBar, it is connected to any alarm monitoring system. The AluRail components of the installation allow for a seamless connection point between the bars and the alarm monitoring system, no fixtures or wires are visible.
