The most effective way of ensuring the security of your sash windows is to ensure they are well-maintained and working effectively. Sash windows are typically subject to wear and tear over time and this can reduce your window security, making them more prone to damage. If you notice any parts of your sash windows looking poor or flimsy, then you should consider replacement of these parts immediately. Check out our window furniture for any window parts you may need to purchase for replacement.
However, if your windows are well-maintained and properly locked, as with most windows, they will provide a fair level of security.
Dual Screws fit most sash windows and offer added security as the screw can only be removed by the use of a kay. Quite simply, dual screws secure the two window frames together to prevent opening completely.
These are effective security measures to take when you are going on holiday and want to ensure your windows are properly locked and secured.
Window Catches are ideal for sash windows as they can prevent the lower sash window from lifting any higher than a couple of inches. Not only does this add security to your home by preventing a potential thief from entering your home, it allows for effective ventilation and is a much safer option if you have small children around.
Reinforcing your window glass is one of the more expensive options but it an effective way to up your window security without adding bars.
Reinforced glass is stronger and more difficult for burglars to break than standard glass, meaning it will take them far longer to break through the glass and they will usually alert someone in the process of attempting to smash the glass in the first place.
