It doesn't take much imagination to realise that most intruders enter your home through windows and exit through doors. New windows and doors offer increasing levels of security using high-technology hardware which makes it much more difficult to break in. Don't forget that sealed unit double glazing also acts as a powerful deterrent to would-be thieves because the glass is more difficult to break.
WRS's Elite 70 window which is sold as standard features all of the following security measures.
Handles incorporating integral locks are looked on favourably by many insurance companies.
A mechanism rather like an old-fashioned fridge where the handle operates a bar which in turn operates cams and bolts at several points around the frame, providing excellent security.
Operating the handle not only operates the usual catch but also 'shoots' bolts in to the top and bottom of the frame giving an even higher security performance.
Casement 'scissor-action' window hinges that hold the window open where you want it. These come in various forms e.g. Standard, Egress - for a maximum clear opening. Restricted - for minimum safety opening and High Security types. These are also available as Fire Hinges.
Night Vents/Trickle Vents - Available Upon Request:
Vents incorporated into window frames which provide ventilation without opening the window. Ventilators are required under the new Building Regulations.
This means the actual double glazed panel cannot be removed from the outside.
