How Secure Are Your Doors?
Testing with experienced security experts showed that a standard cylinder lock could be breached in under 10 seconds, while one of our high security locks withstood nearly 3 minutes of sustained attacks with a variety of tools. One of the most common methods used by burglars is the lock snapping technique, where they physically remove the cylinder lock with pliers and force.
Thanks to the unique segmented design – complete with redundant sections and Lock Down Mode™ – our high security locks can resist these attacks, and even function after the lock face has been damaged or removed. By combining a high security lock with a New Windows security door, you can prevent your home from even sustained break-in attempts, keeping your family and property safe from harm and theft.
High Security Locks
New Windows sell a huge variety of secure uPVC doors, windows and conservatories, but what good is a composite security door when it’s fitted with a flimsy lock? By partnering with one of the UK’s finest cylinder lock producers, New Windows can secure your home against burglars and heat loss alike with our range of security doors and high security locks. These optional high security locks grant extra security through the use of dense alloys and multiple redundant sections that provide award-winning security even after several break-in attempts.
According to data from the Office of National Statistics, 73% of burglars enter through doors, meaning that security doors with high security locks will deter most burglars. Furthermore, if you opt for a more intimidating-looking security door, you will be able to deter most burglars from even attempting to break into your home.
After installing security doors, the second most important part of keeping your home secure is keeping track of your keys. With New Windows’ range of multifunctional key caps, you can customise your keys for each door or each person with a set and track them all over the world with Bluetooth!
