Metalex Security Products has much more to offer than just its many years in operation. The President and founder, Tom Reimer established the business in 1986 after a personal experience of having to break into his own home after losing his keys. The point of entry was through the basement window which provided easy access. It became immediately obvious that the basement windows were very vulnerable to break and enter. Tom devised a metal window guard for his windows and, subsequently, half the neighbourhood! Hence, Metalex Security Products was born. With growing concern among businesses and homeowners for greater security, Metalex Security Products Inc. offers door and window guards as a major part of its repertoire. In some cases, insurance companies are refusing coverage to properties without appropriate window guards. In my opinion, security window and door guards are a great addition or alternative to alarms, Tom says. Alarm systems tend to be expensive and response times are often slow. A visual barrier acts as a deterrent. If it’s difficult to break-in, the thief usually opts to go on to the next house.
