4 Ways Double Glazed Windows Can Improve Your Home Security
Home security is a top priority for many homeowners across the West Midlands, and while alarm systems and door locks are essential, the windows in your home can be a vulnerable point of entry for intruders. Double glazed windows are an excellent choice for enhancing your home's security. Here are five ways double glazed windows can make your home safer.
1. Enhanced Durability
Double glazed windows are made with two panes of glass that are sealed together, providing added strength and durability compared to single-pane windows. This added robustness makes it more difficult for burglars to break through the glass. Even if they attempt to shatter one pane, they'll still face another layer of protection. This increased durability acts as a deterrent, as intruders prefer easier less noisy entry points.
2. Laminated Glass Options
Many double glazed windows offer the option of laminated glass - at Finesse Windows we even have our own brand of SHIELD GLASS. Laminated glass consists of two or more glass layers with an interlayer of durable plastic. This design makes it extremely difficult to break, as the plastic layer holds the glass fragments together even when it shatters. Laminated glass windows can withstand blunt force, reducing the risk of forced entry.
3. Improved Locking Mechanisms and enhanced security features
Double glazed windows often come equipped with advanced locking mechanisms. The Elegance range of windows from Finesse come with full steel reinforcing, an additional shoot bolt locking system, high security hinges, sash claws, cams and keeps, alongside being internally glazed which prevents the unit being de-glazed from the outside as standard. All our windows feature the Police approved, “Secure By Design” locking technology - we want to give you peace of mind that your home and family are safe from intruders.
4. Impact Resistance
Double glazed windows are designed to withstand a variety of environmental factors, including extreme weather conditions. Their impact-resistant features mean they can withstand more substantial blows, whether from a potential intruder trying to force their way in or from severe storms. This added resilience can be a crucial aspect of home security.
Double glazed windows offer several ways to enhance your home security. Their durability, laminated glass options, noise reduction capabilities, advanced locking mechanisms, and impact resistance collectively make your home a safer place. By investing in double glazed windows, you not only enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency and noise reduction but also gain peace of mind knowing that your home is better protected against potential intruders. These windows are a smart choice for homeowners looking to improve both their safety and their overall quality of life.
