Individual guard house

Elegant security windows in aluminium with attractive design variants in classifications up to RC 4 and FB4.

Individual security in an aesthetic appearance

One of the SÄLZER maxims is: the best security is security you cannot see. After all, maximum security and individual design are not mutually exclusive.

The customer therefore determines the design of the guard house and SÄLZER then implements the best security technology for this design concept. The security house concept is as individual as the design.

This means, for example, that generous glazing with a conventional construction method ensures that the guard house is individually adapted to the architecture of the entire property.
