How to install Polycarbonate BURGLAR BARS
Here is a very easy and inexpensive way to install burglar bars in your home.
One of the appealing features is that you can see through the bars, often forgetting that they’re even there. So you don’t have to feel as if you’re living in a prison in order to keep burglars out.
Polycarbonate plastic is a very durable material. Although it is able to resist hard impacts, it is also very scratch-resistant. It is lightweight which makes it perfect to use to make lenses for spectacles and also the plastic lenses for car lights. Polycarbonate has high transparency levels, and has better light transmission than many kinds of glass.
It can be laminated to make bullet resistant glass, such as the glass that is used in bullet proof cars, and when thicker laminations are created, polycarbonate can be used to make almost impenetrable barriers such as those used at the tellers window in a bank.
So, polycarbonate plastic is strong, flexible, easy to cut and drill, lightweight and has all of the attributes necessary to make it great to use as a burglar proofing medium in your home.
