Many people choose high security windows and doors for the peace of mind that comes with knowing their family and possessions are safe. These products are made from top of the range materials that will not be easily broken into, and the frames are reinforced to make it more difficult for thieves to break into your property through a window.
In addition to strong glass, these windows are fitted with extra frame fittings and locking points. This makes it more difficult for a thief to break into your home or business. In fact, the added security of these windows is enough to stop some burglars in their tracks.
You can also improve the security of your windows and doors by installing Yale locks, which are some of the most trusted in the industry. These locks are available in a variety of styles and colors to match your home’s decor. They are easy to use, even for children, and the integrated locking cylinders effectively prevent professional burglars from opening your window from the inside.
While traditional wood windows are attractive, they require regular maintenance and are susceptible to rot, warping, insect damage, and seal erosion. As a result, many homeowners choose low maintenance replacement windows. There are several options available, including fiberglass, aluminum, clad, and vinyl windows. Each offers different advantages, but all provide a low-maintenance option.
uPVC windows are a popular choice for replacement windows because they are durable, cost-effective, and offer great energy efficiency. However, they can be difficult to fit in a brick or stud wall. Also, they can be subject to abrasion from the rough surface of bricks or plaster. Evolution timber alternative windows offer a solution to this problem, providing low-maintenance windows with the exquisite traditional aesthetics of real wood. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of uPVC without the laborious sanding and painting required by traditional wood windows.
Windows are responsible for 25-30% of residential heating and cooling energy consumption. The right window configurations and glass options can help reduce energy costs, improve comfort, and protect the environment. With today’s industry advancements, sustainable windows are easier than ever to find.
Make sure your new windows have an insulated frame and low-E coatings to keep heat in and reduce UV ray penetration. Combined with the smart design of tilt and turn windows, you’ll be amazed at how much money you save in the long run.
ENERGY STAR® certified windows have a lower U-Factor, a government measurement of insulation performance based on climate conditions, than standard window products. Look for the ENERGY STAR label when purchasing and installing your windows and doors. The label must be on the frame, sash and glazing assembly. North-facing windows can have a higher SHGC, but only when shaded with deep overhangs or active shading systems that effectively protect all the glass from summer sun early and late in the day.
