Metal bars - costing?

I know this is potentially how long is a piece of string scenario. However, can anyone give any idea on what an acceptable costing is for metal grills on windows - those which are drilled through into the wall. I know it will vary on size and style etc just a rough idea to help ensure I am not getting ripped off.

Re: Metal bars - costing?

I cant help with the price but be careful how they are fitted as most can pull off in a few seconds.

Yes, they look good but many are no deterrent to a burglar/intruder.

Re: Metal bars - costing?

When our place was being built, iron rods were drilled through the walls at an angle, heated up and bent over , the inner walls then replastered and made smooth then the grilles were welded onto the short stubs left on the outside portruding

You would need a chain connected to a tractor to pull them out

This is pretty much the same principle of what we are looking to have done. People will debate all day whether to have them or not. It’s our preference to have them: whether it’s a deterrent or to simply slow them down or if it doesn’t neither. I would rather have piece of mind.

Re: Metal bars - costing?

I agree with your attitude, grilles or no grilles is a matter of choice. Your question to this forum was simple but members here are filled with negativity and their own self importance I'm affraid.
Instead of asking the question on here you would be better off visiting the many workshops in your area and compare prices.
I hope you get the answers you need. Best of luck.

Re: Metal bars - costing?

Bashful, what you describe as negativity others will view as good advise. What free advise the OP gets on here is exactly that; free.

There are mainly 2 things to consider before deciding to buy.

1) What happens in a burglary.
2) What happens in a fire.

If the grilles are indeed bolted through the wall and you need a tractor then possibly no escape for anyone trapped in the room. If you are able to remove the grilles to escape then a burglar can remove to enter.

Decide on which is most important then get a price accordingly.

Re: Metal bars - costing?

But the OP may not have thought of the different installations or that there were different ways to install. Juco and Ted gave two different scenarios that I think were valid and needed thought, they were not to know what was in the OPs mind.

Certainly nothing to do with self importance IMHO.

The OP even quoted and commented on Teds post.
