Approximately 30% of all home burglaries occur through open or unlocked windows. Double glazing has multiple security layers to prevent unwanted guests in your home. You can choose windows and doors with stainless steel multiple-point locking hardware – e.g. tilt and turn – and you can install lockable handles to all windows. This means with one turn of the handle your window will be secured from several points.
Old faulty windows make easy entry for intruders. Double glazing is also visibly different, so acts as a deterrent against unwanted intruders and keep your family safe and secure.
Furthermore, double glazing has an increased resistance to breakage as a result of physical stresses caused by different temperatures within a pane – and intruders trying to get in – making it very difficult to break.
