Let?s face it, if someone is determined to break into your property there?s not a lot you can do to stop them. Your windows and doors at the natural points of entry into your home and therefore prime targets for potential thieves.
The latest generation window locking technology is impressive, not to mention unobtrusive and doesn?t require you going around at night boarding up and applying padlocks. Commonly fitted Espagnolette locks and SAC (Security And Compression) shoot bolt systems, provide substantial protection and when combined with added deterrents such as internal beading, designed to prevent the frame being broken into from the outside, reinforced hinges and toughed glass, you can be sure you?re going all you reasonably can to protect home.
Prevention is always better than cure, so it?s also a good idea in install a prominent and easily recognisable burglar alarm and if available, sign up to a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
If in doubt, ask the opinion of your double glazing supplier. They are usually experts in this field and can give you honest advice as to the best security options for your property. Know precisely what you are getting; be sure to check what comes as standard and the price of any upgrades, together with the added value they would provide before you sign on any dotted lines.
