There are pros and cons to having window grills inside or outside your home or business. Ultimately, the position of your window grills comes down to personal preference and what works best for your specific needs. Here are some things to keep in mind when making your decision:


External grills offer proven protection

If security is your main concern, having window grills on the outside of your property may be the best option, especially if you own a retail store, office, workshop, showroom or industrial unit. This way, potential intruders will have a difficult time shattering your doors or windows whilst you’re still able to let light into your space, which means your products can be showcased even at night. You can sleep well, knowing your business is protected.


Control light from inside your home

On the other hand, if aesthetics are crucial and you’re primarily looking to control the amount of light that enters your home, having the grills on the inside of your property may be wise. They will be less visible from the outside and won’t affect the appearance of your property, yet you’ll still gain extra privacy and protection.


Protect your windows and withstand weather damage

Many commercial properties take full advantage of external security grills, maximising protection against potential thieves and intruders and the often harsh and unpredictable British weather. If your windows are constantly bombarded by high winds, rain and flying debris, or vandalism is on the rise in your location, having an extra layer of protection could make all the difference.


Navigate the many modern design and styles

Over the last decade, there’s been a huge rise in domestic and commercial security grills, and it’s meant that many innovative manufacturers have upped their game and built security grills that not only give you the protection you need but make your property look smarter, sleeker and more upmarket. Domestic security grills can now be fitted to the inside or outside with remote operation, whilst you can explore neutral hues to complement your brickwork and surrounding architecture.

With commercial properties, external grills and shutters have played an essential role in maximising security for shops, restaurants, supermarkets, factories, warehouses, petrol stations, schools and offices. Here at Eastern Security Doors, we have many aesthetically pleasing security grilles, including fitted and retractable, and they won’t detract from the appeal of the building. We also offer a made-to-measure service to ensure you get the level of protection you need with a smooth installation.

When deciding whether to have window grills inside or outside your home or business, there are many factors to consider. It’s essential to think about your specific needs and what would work best for you before deciding. However, both options offer their own set of benefits, so it comes down to your unique requirements.
