Security is obviously an important consideration when deciding which windows and doors to install in your home. There are many different materials to choose from and so understanding how secure they are is an important step. We explain why aluminium is one of the most secure materials for doors and windows on the market.
Despite its lightness, aluminium is an abundant, naturally low maintenance material that is made to last. Aluminium is incredibly strong and durable, making it ideal for framing windows and doors. Due to its structural integrity it can help with innovative solutions for all architectural styles and can actually be manufactured into some of the slimmest frames on the market. Combining aluminium with sophisticated locking systems, aluminium windows and doors are some of the most secure for homes.
At Reynaers at Home our aluminium doors and windows come with state of the art locking systems as standard. We also offer electronic locks that allow you to secure them using a remote control or via a wall-mounted button that can automatically keep them locked whenever they are fully closed. Notably, our locking systems are discretely concealed to keep them looking sleek and sophisticated.
When purchasing aluminium doors or windows, there are various accreditations to take note of such as the European standard EN1627-1630, which subjects the window or door to a variety of tests to simulate a break-in. At Reynaers at Home all of our products undertake rigorous testing to ensure these security standards are met.
Additionally, we have gone one step further and achieved Secured by Design accreditation, which is an organisation that has been created by the Association of Chief Police Officers with the aim to reduce crime and make properties even more secure. Only the most secure windows and doors can achieve this accreditation.
