Earlier on this month, two men claiming to be customs officers forced their way into an elderly residents’ home in Worksop, stealing money and jewellery. Thankfully, one of them has already been arrested in connection with the burglary but, with this in mind, it’s unsurprising that secure doors and windows are the third most popular feature that UK property buyers look for in their new home.
As the most budget-friendly door option around, we often get asked just how safe uPVC doors truly are. So, if you’re wondering if uPVC doors can offer your family the right levels of security, please continue reading.
How safe are uPVC doors?
uPVC doors are incredibly safe and secure, providing outstanding performance and durability. Low maintenance, thermally efficient and acoustically sound, it’s an ideal material to use for front and back doors alike.
At Global Windows, our uPVC doors are different because they’re available with the Elite locking system from DGS or the outstanding Ultion Brisant cylinder lock. If you decide upon the Ultionlock, you’ll be pleased to know that this means that all of our uPVC doors come with a £1,000 guarantee that covers the door against forced entry for 10 years.
Our uPVC doors absolutely dispel the misconception that uPVC is cheap and therefore lacks security aspects that other door materials can offer. Exceeding Building Regulation requirements for security and efficiency, their impressive 70mm wide profiles are also PAS 24 and Secured by Design accredited. So, when you lock up for the night, you know that you’re in for a peaceful and secure night’s sleep.
How can I make my front door more secure?
If your front door is single glazed, it’s imperative that you upgrade to double glazing Worksop. If you’re looking for higher levels of security, the 21st Century features of the composite door may be just what you’re looking for. Coated in a Glass Reinforced Polyester skin (GRP), the fusion of high-performance materials and reinforced glass is highly sought-after in Worksop, Nottinghamshire and beyond.
Nottinghamshire Police have a helpful home security quiz that allows you to look at your home through the eyes of a potential burglar and see how secure it really is.
