Are casement windows secure?
Securing your property is a primary concern for most homeowners, who seek to keep both their possessions and family safe. Windows and doors are often the main entry point for burglars and other unsavoury characters. Security should be at the forefront of your mind when it comes to upgrading or refurbishing your property. Choosing high-quality, secure windows will ensure your home is not only kept warm and dry but also secure against unwelcome intruders.
A hugely popular option for homeowners across the UK, casement windows are a versatile and practical option for both traditional and contemporary properties alike. Available in both uPVC and aluminium, they are engineered with strength, resilience and security in mind.
If you’ve been considering the installation of new windows in your property you may be questioning whether they are safe and secure. Modern casement windows are manufactured with multi-point locking mechanisms and other innovative security features that can keep you, your family and your possessions safe.
Are casement windows easy to break into?
High-quality casement windows feature modern multi-point locking mechanisms and double glazing. Double glazing is more difficult to break than traditional single glazed glass. Any attempt of forced entry would surely attract your attention or the attention of your neighbours. This is usually enough to deter burglars and other intruders.
Internal beading is also important. Windows with external beading are easier to break into. Intruders can easily remove the beading and glass from the outside of your home. As a standard, most modern windows are engineered with internal beading. However, you should always do your due diligence with your chosen installer before agreeing to any contract.
Is uPVC or aluminium more secure?
Modern casement windows are engineered from your choice of uPVC or aluminium. Manufactured with durability and resilience in mind, both materials are incredibly strong and secure. Whatever you choose, your casement window frame will have the strength to keep your property safe from unwelcome intruders.
