Casement windows are one of the most popular window styles for homes and it’s clear to see why. They are a versatile yet affordable option. They are normally hinged at the side with the frame allowing for plenty of light to fill your home. With no way for the handle to be turned from the outside, casement windows are also considered one of the most secure windows styles – as long as you remember to keep them closed and locked at night and when you’re not in.

As the nights get darker and winter approaches, burglaries and break-ins can often see a rise. This is thought to be due to longer nights giving potential criminals more opportunities under the cover of darkness. Also as it nears Christmas, many homes may have expensive gifts lying around. This is the perfect time to consider how to make your casement windows more secure.

Replacing your windows for the highest levels of performance

If your windows are single glazed or an older form of double glazing, it may be worth considering getting them completely replaced. As well as ensuring they offer the maximum security, your home’s comfort and energy efficiency will also be vastly improved. If your home still has its original single glazed wooden windows, while they may still look in good shape, they could be compromised internally. Over time, older wooden windows can become fragile and this affects their security, how weatherproof they are and their thermal efficiency.  If water seeps in, the windows can expand and weaken which will see them lose heat. Older windows weren’t necessarily designed with security at the forefront and this makes them an easy target for burglars.

Replacing your windows with modern uPVC frames will considerably improve your home’s thermal efficiency and security. We offer safe and secure Liniar windows which are fitted with high security multi-point locking as standard. All of our windows are put through extensive testing to ensure that they are durable, secure and built to last. As well as this, our windows offer all the other benefits you can expect including high levels of thermal efficiency, durability and a wide range of attractive colours and finishes. Our windows won’t weaken and offer robust weatherproofing throughout the year.

You could also consider aluminium casement windows. As well as giving a modern and sleek look, aluminium is an extremely strong and durable material. It’s lightweight yet incredibly strong which allows it to hold large frames of glass giving your home more light but also staying strong against damage. To give you even greater peace of mind you can choose to have extra features such as toughened, obscured or laminated glass, triple glazing and additional locks. To find out more about what we can offer, talk to one of our window experts.

Secure window locks for your peace of mind

All of our casement windows come with high quality multipoint locking mechanisms as standard. Multipoint locks feature a strip which bolts into the side of the window and locks at multiple points along the frame, adding heightened security compared to a single lock. They are all also internally beaded which means that the window cannot be removed from the outside. All of our handles and hardware offer attractive finishes and colours while never compromising on security.

Accreditations that show we care

When choosing secure windows, you’ll want to ensure that they have certain security accreditations. Our windows are independently tested to the requirements of PAS 24 and Secured by Design. PAS 24 is a security standard that is achieved once a product such as a window or door has been thoroughly assessed for its security performance levels.  Secured by Design is a police initiative that ensures that windows and doors offer enough protection to deter and prevent crime.
