Want to help burglar proof your home? Secure your windows and doors.
With an average of 20% of homes across the country being broken into at some point, home security is an important issue for homeowners. Here’s how you can improve the security of your property.
Home security: the facts
Research in the UK has shown that, on average, a home is broken into every 50 seconds. It’s been shown that 44% of these crimes occur during daylight hours. With this information in mind, now is as good a time as any to think about improving the security of your home.
Vulnerable entry points around your home
The two main entry points around your home are, you guessed it, your doors and your windows. Here’s why.
The primary entrance and exit point for intruders, it’s vital that doors are secured effectively. This means investing in adequate locks and security fixtures. The police recommend that your door is at least 45mm thick, is fitted with a 5 lever mortice deadlock and that its frame is strong enough to withstand sustained attack.
Another easy entrance and exit point for burglars, windows are often targets for opportunistic intruders. As well as breaking the glazing to gain entry, many thieves will attempt to undermine the window frame to gain access. This means you need to ensure your entire window can offer adequate protection. The police advise installing high quality double glazing or toughened glass to improve security, as well as fitting window locks and not leaving valuables on display.
