Burglar bars fit over windows or doors, which prevent most burglars from entering a house through a window or a glass door. Most homeowners in the United Sates don’t feel the need for such stringent security, though some small businesses may see them as a necessity. Thanks to technology and a material called polycarbonate, transparent bars are now available. These invisible bars are similar to glass.

Burglar bars can be a solution for you if you don’t have professionally monitored home security, or you live in an unsafe area. They might be a good idea on those small windows for basements near the ground level. These windows often deteriorate and can become weakened over time. Burglars are always looking for weaknesses on homes. Having some of these bars might be a good idea even if you don’t live in a dangerous neighborhood. Clear burglar bars could also be a good idea on doors with some sort of glass feature. 

Polycarbonate to the Rescue

For years, burglar bars were made of metal, and lacked aesthetic appeal. They also obstructed the view of people on the inside of the house. Polycarbonate is a very tough material and is very light in weight. In some ways, polycarbonate is stronger than some types of metal. They are not bendable as a metal bar would be, and they are bullet-proof. Polycarbonate transparent burglar bars obviously  won’t rust  like metal bars will. They require no maintenance, and don’t need painting. If you need to clean bars made of polycarbonate, you can simply wipe them off with a damp cloth or mild soap and water.

Shapes and sizes

Transparent burglar bars are available in different  widths and sizes. They are available as sheets, which can be installed like a covering. They are much tougher than metal bars and would be extremely hard to break though without specialized tools.
