Protect your home from burglars

Statistics show that the numbers of burglary have increased dramatically in Europe – according to the "Europäische Einbruchsstatistik" (European burglary statistics) most of them are surprisingly committed in Switzerland, a country which actually seemed to be one of the safest in Europe.

Lock out burglars – and find out which mechanical door and window locks could be useful for your home. We have a wide range of products: door and window locks, reinforced bolt locks, grating locks for cellar windows and locks for attic windows; we supply additional protection for virtually every requirement.

And the Secvest wireless alarm system sets new standards in intruder alarm technology. What makes it unique? Mechatronic components provide mechanical resistance against intruders and, at the same time, trigger an alarm. It is intuitive, easy to use and also perfect for retrofitting into existing buildings.

Smoke alarms and extinguisher sprays

Candlelight and fireplaces make for a cosy atmosphere in the dark winter months.

It is a good idea to be prepared for possible emergencies and make sure that, in addition to having a smoke alarm fitted, you also have fire extinguishing spray to hand – just in case the cat ever knocks over a burning candle.

This makes it possible to extinguish fires quickly before they can cause any serious damage.

Cycle helmets protect lives!

Even as it begins to get colder, cycling is still a way of life for many people. Now that the roads have become slippery – due to wet leaves, rain or black ice – it is important to protect yourself by wearing a cycle helmet.
