PAS 24-2016 and Secured by Design
Secured by Design is a police initiative that improves the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings to provide safe places to live, work, shop and visit. Many companies offer Secured by Design compliant windows and doors as an extra cost option. All of our doors and windows are PAS 24-2016 and Secured by Design certified as standard.
Enhanced Security Glass
Toughened glass provides safety, but professional thieves know that all it takes is one sharp tap with a hammer to shatter the glass and gain entry. We use laminated glass to enhance your security, where it's appropriate. A PVCu layer between two panes of glass prevents the glass from fragmenting, even if it is shattered. It is still possible to break through, but it will take ten to fifteen minutes with a sledgehammer instead of five seconds with a small hammer, which is enough to deter even the most persistent burglar.
Multi-point Locking Mechanisms
The bespoke locking keep on our windows has a useful night vent locking position and all of our windows have the latest built-in security features, including internal glazing beads and multi-point locking systems. To further enhance resistance to forced entry, our windows can be fitted with a hinge protector device between the frame and the sash opener.
Ultimate Security from the Ultion Lock
Upgrade to the Ultion lock and you have a door lock, which protects against snapping (when a burglar literally rips the lock out of the door); picking; bumping and drilling. It even has an automatic lock-down mode if an attack is detected. All of this has gained it the highest accolade from the Master Locksmiths Association.
