Double Glazing

Compared to standard single-pane windows, double-glazed windows and doors offer a higher level of security, making it incredibly challenging for intruders to break through.

This is due to their construction, which involves two layers of toughened glass separated by a layer of inert Argon gas. This provides added reinforcement, making them much tougher to break than single-pane windows.

The enhanced security of double-glazed windows is primarily due to the increased difficulty that a potential intruder would face when attempting to break the glass.

Additionally, Brackenwood’s commitment to using durable materials for the window frames, such as uPVC, Timber, or Aluminium, further strengthens the window’s overall structure and resilience against forced entry.

In essence, investing in double-glazed window security by Brackenwood ensures a higher level of security that puts your mind at ease when it comes to protecting your family and valuables.

This demonstrates the undeniable link between double-glazed windows and heightened security, a key factor for homeowners to consider when evaluating their home’s safety.

Double-Glazed Window Security

Double-glazed windows and door installations by Brackenwood go beyond just the glass itself. They involve advanced locking mechanisms that provide additional layers of security to your home. High-quality locks and multi-point systems are so important when creating a secure environment for you and your family.

Door and Window Maintenance

To maintain the optimal security for your home, regular checks and maintenance are essential. These ensure that your windows continue to protect your home for many many years to come. Here are some maintenance tips to follow:

  • Clean and lubricate window locks and hinges. Over time, dirt and debris can accumulate, causing stiffness and reducing their effectiveness. Cleaning and lubricating these parts means you can make them last longer and keep them operating smoothly.
  • Inspecting your windows for wear and tear prevents any security issues. Examine the seals, the frames, and the glass for any cracks or damages. Also, tend to any issues as soon as you can. If nothing else, this will give you great peace of mind.

Misconceptions exist about window maintenance being an overwhelming and costly task. However, simple these steps taken on a regular basis can be highly effective. 

For professional advice, contact the team at Brackenwood. Scheduled inspections further safeguard your home’s security. Performing general maintenance yourself is always a good idea, but a trained professional can identify potential problems before they escalate.
