DAWGS door guards feature a true 6-point locking system, just like a bank vault.

Plus, they are modular, so we can secure any size and shape, giving you the freedom to come and go without worry.

Unlike electronic doors that are susceptible to glitches and cold-weather freezing, this unique mechanical design grants you full access with no surprises. There are no hinges or handles, so the only people that can use this door are the people you give access to. And DAWGS heavy duty steel doors can’t be kicked down or broken, so once it closes behind you, you’re completely secure inside your property.


The modular design of these window guards allows us to cover windows of practically any size and shape, and with our unique bracing system, we do it without damaging your property. The bracing system that holds these DAWGS in place is only accessible from the inside, and can only be handled by an authorized installation team, quickly and effectively eliminating the threat of intruders.

DAWGS are reinforced with heavy duty steel, sporting a unique single-piece construction that doesn’t crack under pressure. All of our window guards come with aeration holes that let in fresh air and sunlight, and are easy for our teams to insulate so you can heat your property all winter long.

A/C Guard

A/C Guard is DAWGS answer to air-conditioning copper theft and whole-unit theft in vacant properties. DAWGS A/C Guard is specifically designed to secure air conditioners. Copper theft continues to plague vacant properties, DAWGS A/C Guard provides the ultimate security against copper theft and theft of air-conditioning units.

Parking Lot Guards

Parking Lot Guards are a steel barricade used to protect the exterior of vacant commercial properties. Made from 14 gauge steel, the Parking Lot Guards creates a strong visual and physical deterrent for vacant restaurants, chain stores and other commercial buildings.
