Armaglaze Security

It will come as no surprise to you that our windows and doors incorporate many security features as standard and will defend your home against the most determined of unwanted visitors. When you first close the window you may not notice it but take a closer look and you’ll see that with a single action the handle simultaneously activates two ‘claw’ locks that move in opposing directions and two bolts that slide out from the corner of the window deep into metal keeps. But when you open the window all these locking points retract into the frame and the mechanisms are all completely hidden from view – no unsightly, exposed locks.

The hinge side can represent a hidden weak spot but not on a Customade window, the hinges are cleverly designed so that when in the closed position they cannot be prised open. In effect all four corners are independently locked so you can sleep sound at night.

All this comes as standard, however there is also a British Standard test regime that puts windows and doors through some very severe simulated attack situations and the most secure windows are classified as offering ‘enhanced security’ and are covered by the widely recognised Kitemark Scheme. This ‘upgrade’ requires only a few extras and attracts minimal cost but gives you products that surpass the most stringent security tests for domestic properties. Please ask us for a full explanation.
