There are a number of ways that window security can be improved, either by the addition of good quality locks, by changing the glass or by the fitting of security window film.
We always replace any broken window catches as part of our restoration service but we can also give advice on other types of locks and catches.
Locks And Latches
If you are concerned about the security of any of your sash windows we are able to fit a range of attractive fittings that will provide additional protection. We particularly like the brass acorn fittings that fit into the side of the top sash. They are visible, so act as a deterrent to the chance burglar. They are easily removed with a key and so will allow full opening. They will also securely lock the window open just enough to provide ventilation, but not enough to allow an intruder access, your children to climb out or your pets to escape.
Laminated glass can also be fitted, where appropriate, to give extra strength to your windows and make them extremely resistant to intrusion.
