Talking about the security and safety of ones’ home, no stone is or should be left unturned to make sure that the level is absolutely top-notch. While the entire structure of the home plays an important role in this regard, individual aspects like the doors and windows are also of extreme relevance. In most cases, these are the points from where break-ins happen and steps should be taken to make them secure and tamper-proof.

No matter what kind of doors and window treatments are installed in a home, these could be UPVC casement doors, French doors or sliding, there are accessories and gadgets available to add to these and build up the security aspect.

Here are a few tips on how to go about the process:

-Alarm system: One of the most common and effective methods for additional security is to get an alarm system installed. There are a number of options available in the market and they are ready to go on all kinds of walls and door systems.

-Sturdy locks: Invest in very good quality locking systems. These need to go on to almost everything, be it the casement windows in the kitchen or the UPVC casement front doors. The locking system should be high quality, tamper-proof.

-Keys: Never leave your keys under anything and even if you have to do so, change the hiding place every couple of days. This way anyone who has been keeping an eye on the pattern will be thrown off guard.

-Lighting: Keep the front door and area around the house nicely lighted. Dark alleyways and dingy corners provide the perfect opportunity for anyone to hide in and in order to avoid this, keep the whole place bright and lighted up.

-Foliage: If you have hedges around the house, make sure that they are trimmed and not overgrown. Maintain them regularly so that they do not becoming hiding ground for intruders.

-Bars for windows: Agreed that grills and safety bars can obstruct the view, but they are a very effective security measure. No matter what you have, UPVC casement windows, sliding or any other kind, adding grills can really help take the security to another level.
