How Secure Are Slimline Aluminium Windows?
If you’re in the market for new windows – be it for your home or business – one of your top considerations is likely to be security. Yes, they have to look nice, operate smoothly and last for many years, but they have to be able to withstand forced entry too.
So, when the words ‘slimline aluminium’ get mentioned, your next thought may well be ‘how tough are they?’ We’re pleased to tell you that the windows we supply and fit aren’t about style over substance: they have both. Let’s take a look at exactly how durable they are, and why they could be the perfect choice for your property.
Senior Architectural Systems products
At Klosen, we only partner with the very best suppliers – and that’s why we’re proud to work with Senior Architectural Systems (SAS). Their windows are among the most stylish, long-lasting and durable around, constructed from premium quality materials designed to endure countless frosts and heatwaves.
Providing excellent thermal efficiency and supreme watertightness, SAS windows ooze quality. They’ve been built to give burglars a seriously hard time too, having been designed to meet Secured by Design (SBD) standards. But what exactly does this mean?
SBD is an accreditation scheme operated on behalf of our police force, and applies to a wide range of products – including windows. The only products that are awarded an SBD accreditation are those that have been independently tested and approved to meet a ‘Police Preferred Specification.’ In other words, they have to be able to help deter or prevent crime.
So, how did the SAS window range get accredited? They were tested by a UKAS-accredited laboratory to ensure they met PAS24 standards, meaning they’ve been independently verified as resistant to attacks from burglars.
