WORRIED ABOUT SECURITY? HERE’S HOW YOU CAN KEEP YOUR HOME SAFE:
One of the biggest fears for homeowners this year is security and having their home broken into. But this isn’t surprising considering that 76% of all burglaries were through a poorly secured door. As well as 31% that were entered by forcing a lock. So what can we do to protect ourselves against burglaries?
The British Standard 3 Star Maximum Cylinder Security from ERA is the lock we recommend here at Select Windows. The lock has been independently tested to meet the latest industry security standards. This offers maximum protection and peace of mind.
The high performance lock contains six hardened high security pins which means it is the ultimate defence against snapping, bumping and picking. These sections of the lock prevent intruders from accessing the inner workings of the lock as well as protecting from intruders drilling through the keyhole.
At Select Windows we believe you should always feel safe in your own home. That’s why we pride ourselves on our attention to security on all of our products.
We offer a range of extra security features such as locking systems, reinforced hinges and child safety mechanisms. We ensure that you can relax in the knowledge that you are safe.
Our products are accredited by Secured by Design, a police backed initiative awarded to products with security features as their main priority.
ANTI – SNAP
Two sacrificial sections means if the Fortress cylinder is snapped, the two front sections will break off, preventing the intruder from getting access to the inner workings of the lock giving superb Anti-Snap protection.
ANTI – PICK & ANTI – BUMP
With six trap pins and over 98,000 differs, Bumping the pins or Picking the lock becomes time consuming and therefore redundant. Giving you a cylinder with the very best Anti – Bump and Anti-Pick protection.
ANTI – DRILL
The use of hardened pins protect from an intruder drilling through the keyhole to access the lock. Multiple pins prevent a drill bit penetrating the lock, for maximum Anti-Drill protection.
FREE DOOR UPGRADE FOR BURGLED WALSALL PENSIONER
After Edgar Merrick, 86 and his wife Beryl, 84 were burgled in their home in Walsall, Select Windows fitted their new windows. After meeting the shook up couple, it was then offered by the company to upgrade their front door for more security.
The Brookhurst Crescent house was broken into via the back bedroom window, whilst Edgar and his wife were downstairs. On hearing a noise, he headed upstairs where he was forced to the ground by the burglar, who then ran off with a bracelet. Edgar, who has been married to his wife for 63 years, shouted Beryl to call the police.
Needing their window replacing, the couple phoned Select Windows. Chris Wood, the Sales Manager says they went out straight away to the couple; “As we were installing his rear bedroom window, where the burglars got in we felt that his front door was also at risk. We upgraded it to a front composite door for the added security for him and his wife, as they were both shook up.”
Edgar and Beryl were very grateful for the work, he said “It was really nice of them and the door is lovely.”
