Glass Safety and Security – Tempered and Toughened Glass
Expertly fitted toughened glass by Sheerwater Glass
For many people, the rationale behind upgrading their windows and doors lies in the security and safety offered by the availability of different types of glass and additional locking systems.
The rate of domestic burglaries generally increases in tough economic times and properties with original single glazed windows and minimal security are often a soft target for criminals.
As the entry point to most homes and businesses, doors and windows represent the easiest opportunity for a potential intruder. Secure double glazing, however, presents a serious challenge for a burglar. The aluminium frame makes it impossible to ‘jemmy’ the window and criminals will think twice before attempting to break the double layer of impact-resistant glass.
