The Brand

The SheerGuard SA Brand started in 2013 when the owner Ricky Walton realised the need for aesthetically pleasing burglar proofing solutions for both residential and corporate South Africa.

The SheerGuard SA mission is to present to market a dynamic burglar proofing system of unsurpassed quality with the added benefit of enhancing aesthetic appeal, successfully merging indoor and outdoor spaces.

What sets us apart from competitors is our promise to deliver outstanding customer service, superior workmanship coupled with a wide range of premium security products.

Having set up 5 franchisees in the space of 12 months in the Gauteng area alone our plan over the next 12 months is to expand into the rest of South Africa.


As we all know, security is one of the fastest growing industries in South Africa and thus, for a number of reasons, has created a massive market for our exceptional product.

Here are a few reasons why people are going crazy about SheerGuard’s range of clear burglar bars:
