Last week marked the start of the Yale® initiative, National Home Security Month. The month aims to highlight issues with home security around this time of year when the clocks are going back and we’re facing longer nights over the Winter period. Now in it’s fourth year, Yale® estimate that a burglary happens every 40 seconds in the UK and that there is a 38% surge in theft around this time of year*.
When it gets darker earlier, it’s important to ensure you have everything in place to lock down your home, or ensure your customers have the most secure windows and doors when advising them on refurbishments they are undertaking.
Reddiseals offer a range of security products for both sash and casement windows which can help reassure you or your customers during this time. The range includes some of the top selling Secured by Design and PAS 24 products.
High security cam lock, engineered for strength to offer premium security to sash windows to help assist with Part Q of the Building Regulations compliance.
Heavy-duty security and restrictor stop which is insurance compliant and allows ventilation whilst ensuring intruders cannot enter via the window.
This window restrictor is designed to limit the opening of the sash, therefore preventing intrusion but also allowing ventilation. Available in both face fix and side fix.
A high security shootbolt system that includes a patented, bi-directional, retractable central locking claw.
Manufactured from stainless steel, when the window is closed they prevent an intruder levering the sash open by locking in place. Sold in pairs and vital for windows to pass the PAS 24 security test.
