Home Improvement Buying Guide- Home Security For Your Windows & Doors
If you are concerned about the security of your home, our windows and doors could help you create a safe space. Burglary statistics do not make for pleasant reading, so it’s important you do all you can to keep your loved ones, prized possessions and belongings safe.
Secure Glazing Options
If you have single glazed windows, upgrading to double glazing can improve security. In the past, double glazing windows are designed with special beading on the exterior of the fixing, helping hold the glass in place. This would create a vulnerability that unwelcome intruders could compromise.
Double glazing has moved on from this and now offers improved levels of home security. All Coral’s modern windows are internally beaded, so the glass is internally beaded rather than from the outside. This stops the glass units from being removed from the outside.
For further security, upgrade to triple glazing. This glazing style can handle heavier impacts than double glazing and is more thermally efficient. These glass panels won’t succumb to condensation and will be less likely to lose performance over time, so you can rely on their durability.
We use Pilkington glazing in our premium quality uPVC and aluminium home improvements. We work with them because we believe they offer the highest quality glazing on the market. You can enjoy optimal thermal efficiency and security when you choose a Pilkington installer like Coral.
Our windows and doors are crafted using durable and sturdy materials that can handle whatever life throws at them. We offer uPVC and aluminium windows and doors. Aluminium profiles outstrip uPVC in almost every department.
Aluminium profiles can perform at peak levels for decades, even without frequent maintenance. Aluminium windows and doors can prove incredibly cost effective because they’re more robust than alternatives on the market.
Composite doors are one of the most secure front doors on the market. They are created with a robust wooden core that is protected by an outer shell crafted using GRP and uPVC. This unique blend works so well together because each material helps to cover the other’s weaknesses.
Advanced Locking Systems
Our entire range of doors are fitted as standard with premium grade locking mechanisms, hinge and shoot bolts and for additional peace of mind cylinder guards. Multipoint locking systems are fitted to our windows as standard.
If a burglar did try to compromise the lock, the break secure cylinder is cleverly designed to carry on working even if it has been damaged. Unwelcome intruders cannot lock snap, and gain entry to your property.
Our range of aluminium bifold doors are fabricated using a 70mm, internally beaded frame, along with the cutting edge locking systems that actively work to protect a space from forced entry. Many of our home improvement installations can comfortably achieve PAS 24 durability and home security standards.
To increase home security further, you may want to fit a door chain as well as a door viewer. This allows you to see who is outside without needing to open the door. If the lock of your door is capable of being opened without a key, consider a letterbox restrictor.
