What is Smart Bar Technology?

Smart Bar technology is a transparent security barrier which is manufactured from polycarbonate material and has been armed with a specially designed thin wire on both sides of the bar.

These wires are in-series connected and is not visible when looking through the bar.

At its core, Smart Bar technology products boast the following features:

Physically strong transparent barrier – made from approved LEXAN polycarbonate material that is aesthetically pleasing with impeccable, high-impact strength. This material is typically used by police officers as shields during riots, bullet resistant and airplane windows.

The barriers are armed 24/7 – The Smart Bar technology allows for a thin wire to be securely wedged in specially made grooves on either side of a transparent polycarbonate bar.

The wire can be connected to any alarm monitoring system and will provide the most secure alarm sensor. This will provide you with a permanent armed perimeter protection.

How does it work?

The in-series connection of the wire in the transparent bar receives an electrical pulse from the alarm board.

An end-of- line resistor also protects the bars if the electrical pulse is bypassed or bridged. Should the bars be kicked out, cut, melted or tampered with in an attempt to burglarize the property, the thin wire will break and instantly activate the alarm.

Smart Bar technology is technology and innovation you can trust. The unique selling point of the Smart Bar product range is that it ingeniously combines two different branches of traditional security barriers to form one truly efficient security product.

What are Armed Bars?

Armed Bars are transparent burglar bars fitted with Smart Bar technology that has the impressive ability to protect the home and inhabitants with physically strong, clear bars that are integrated with a 24/7 active alarm monitoring system. This will provide the client with a permanent armed perimeter protection.

These aesthetically pleasing physical security barriers completely eliminate the imposing prison-like feel, that traditional, “third world” metal security barriers give. Armed Bars will provide the customer with the kind of freedom they deserve.
