Uses of Window Guards
Woven Wire window guards have proven their ability to protect
stores, churches, schools, homes and factories against burglary

Woven Wire window guards are always made to fit the exact
openings of windows, eliminating waste of material since webs
are not cut from stock sheets but are woven for each individual

such as bird screens for church windows. Thickness of wire
can be increased where added protection is required, such
as exterior windows adjacent to school playgrounds.
