  3. Protecting Your Property with Certified Grilles

How secure is your property? With around 57% of burglars entering properties through a window or door, it is important to ensure a level of certified security to deter unauthorised access.  For commercial, residential and public buildings, understanding and spotting these potential weaknesses helps to lower the chances of becoming a victim of crime.

The Bradbury Group offers a unique collection of security grilles that provide a great visual and physical deterrent to help solve a lot of common security issues. All of our products are high-quality, reliable and cost-effective, and can be tailored to meet your personal requirements.

This guide focuses on our range of certified grilles that can suit all applications, and differing levels of perceived risk to help you determine the ideal product to secure your property and assets.

As Bradbury’s best-selling grille, the CX2 is a certified retractable grille that is ideal for both commercial and domestic applications.

Certified by the LPCB to LPS 1175 Security Rating 1, and Secured by Design approved, CX2 is the first choice when an insurance rated grille is required, to help reduce insurance premiums.
