No matter how much our personal tastes may differ, there's one thing on which we can all agree - keeping our family home safe is a top priority.
If you are designing or renovating a property, specifying doors and windows with high levels of security is an excellent long term investment.
If you are embarking on a new build, Approved Document Q of the Building Regulations now details the minimum requirement for security in new dwellings. PAS24 is the latest enhanced security test standard to meet this regulation.
Secured by Design is a police affiliated specification which may be required for your project. It is only awarded to member companies whose products pass standards and tests nominated by the Police. JELD-WEN’s timber window range offers products that meet this important level, including Stormsure Casement and Sliding Sash windows.
Despite undergoing rigorous testing and meeting the a stringent of performance standards, JELD-WEN timber windows are not compromised in terms of style. Offering the widest range of windows in a variety of shapes and sizes, you can be sure that there is the right window for you.
Choose flush casement for conservation areas, Stormsure Energy+ for the latest in thermal efficiency and Sliding sash windows for keeping with the traditional period property look.
Don't forget the details
As a deterrent for burglars, installing smaller sashes makes the window harder to fit through, while adding laminated glass to windows provides greater protection against breakage. Also opting for a high level of obscurity in glazing helps to prevent the view into the property.
