National Home Security Month
Published: 14th October 2015
Running throughout October, National Home Security Month is highlighting different elements of home security each week, including a focus on door and window security.
*Latest figures from the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) August 2015 showed that there were an estimated 6.8 million incidents of crime against households and resident adults (aged 16 and over).
There were 32,617 burglaries in July 2015 and 32,494 in August 2015 which, although a decrease of 123 in the 2 month period, is still a significantly high figure.
Ensuring the windows and doors we provide are as secure as possible, has always been one of our highest priorities, which is why we have invested in the Kommerling frame system with galvanised steel reinforcement.
Whether you require windows, doors, bi-fold doors or a conservatory, you will receive a highly secure product with multi-point locking systems, shoot bolts and internal beading for enhanced security.
In addition all our products already meet the new Building Regulations legislation (Approved Document Q1) that will require all doors and windows fitted in new build homes to be either PAS24:2012 rated or Secured by Design.
At Lockwood Windows we are not prepared to compromise on security or quality, and have invested heavily to provide the most energy efficient and secure window systems available on the market today.
