With break-ins and burglaries being so much more common today than they were before, many people are left with a lot of financial loss and emotional scarring when items of sentimental or monetary value are stolen.
If you’d like to know more about making your home a safe and secure place for you and your loved ones, you’re in the right place. Although we can’t promise or guarantee that these measures will mean that no one will break into your home, securing your home with the right windows and doors can reduce the amount of stress and worry for you, and make it harder for burglars to gain access to your property.
Secure your home with the right doors
Did you know that aluminium is one of the strongest materials ever used in manufacturing windows and doors? This alone should make you want to choose aluminium doors for your home, but there are other reasons why aluminium may be the best option to add security to your house:
- Compared to steel and wood, aluminium has a greater strength-to-weight ratio. What does this mean? Aluminium frames and sheets can withstand more force before bending or breaking.
- There are no weak points along the aluminium door’s joints because they have deep welds or none at all. This is due to aluminium’s ductile properties that allow advanced fabrication techniques.
- Aluminium does not corrode easily nor does it rust easily. It is a material that is immune to water damage and insect attacks, making it highly resilient to harsher weather and, of course, burglaries.
- Aluminium doors require little maintenance and have an extremely long lifespan due to their structural integrity. Did you know that aluminium doors can last up to a decade? So, you’ll be saving a lot of money in the long term.
And you’ll be pleased to know that aluminium doors look extremely stylish too!
Secure your home with the right windows
Forcing entry through older windows is a lot easier than with newer windows. Burglars have learnt how to force them open, break glass, and remove the frames to enter, making them one of the main points of entry for thieves. If you upgrade to newer, modern windows made from uPVC or aluminium, you can make your home very secure.
Although aluminium window frames are light and thin, don’t be deceived into thinking they’re less secure. It’s quite the opposite. Aluminium is one of the best materials available for being burglar resistant.
Good quality aluminium is an extremely strong material despite its lightweight appearance. If they are hit with sharp objects, aluminium window frames will not crack, and, of course, can’t be cut like wooden window frames. This level of strength, durability, and security makes aluminium windows a popular choice for a lot of homeowners.
