Double Tempered Glass:
Investing in windows with double tempered glass is a smart choice for bolstering your home security. Tempered glass is designed to be stronger and more resistant to breakage than regular glass. In the event of an attempted break-in, the glass will shatter into small, safe fragments, making it harder for intruders to gain access to your home. Double tempered glass provides an added layer of strength, enhancing the security of your windows.
Full Cam Locks:
Window locks play a vital role in preventing unauthorized entry. When choosing new windows, opt for models equipped with full cam locks. These locks engage with the window frame at multiple points, offering enhanced security and making it significantly more challenging for potential intruders to force the window open. Full cam locks provide peace of mind, knowing that your windows are securely sealed against unwanted access. In addition, a special feature that HR40 windows offer is the use of a triple interlocking system that interlock the sashes with the main frame of the window. This makes it difficult to pry the window open and have an intruder break in. This feature is a great way to save on energy bills, but a security feature that prevents anyone from opening your window from the outside.
Rigid Building Materials:
The choice of building materials for your windows can greatly impact their security. Look for windows made from rigid materials known for their strength and durability, such as 100% virgin vinyl. These materials are more resistant to forced entry and provide an added layer of protection for your home. By selecting windows with robust construction, you create a formidable barrier that acts as a deterrent against intruders. Recycled plastic windows and composite can easily break and shatter causing a security risk and easy point of entry for unwanted guests to come into your home.
Proper installation is crucial for ensuring the effectiveness of your new windows’ security features. Entrust the installation to experienced professionals who understand the specific requirements and techniques needed to maximize the security potential of your windows. Professional installation ensures that the windows are fitted correctly, ensuring optimal performance and peace of mind.
