How secure are modern aluminium windows?
Aluminium windows look super sleek.
They’re also a great way to modernise any style of property.
But just how tough are they when it comes to home security?
Let’s find out…
Are aluminium windows safe and secure?
From a security aspect, aluminium windows are up there with the best-rated windows on the UK market. Even if they are struck or attacked repeatedly, the frames won’t crack (like some cheap uPVC windows). It’s also near-on impossible to cut or saw through them (like wooden frames).
Locks wise, they’re so robust that even the most forceful attack would fail. Realistically, there’s more chance of the glazing being broken. And even that would prove difficult because of the modern tempered and laminated glass which is now widely used.
Why are aluminium windows so strong?
Thanks to modern Building Regulations, all windows MUST now comply with Document Q, designed to make sure windows can withstand certain levels of attack.
Every window installed in a new UK property has to meet these minimum-security standards – including those made from wood, uPVC and aluminium.
However, the fact that Aluminium windows are manufactured from a material which has massive strength advantages (compared to wood and uPVC) makes them far more robust.
In terms of structural integrity, even the slimmest aluminium windows will keep your home super secure.
