Safe as Houses: Ensuring the Best Security Measures

Posted on by

Securing Your HomeAs manufacturers and suppliers of windows and other flat glass products, we at Warmseal understand the pressing need for security and safety in the home. One of the inherent problems with glass is that’s breakable, meaning that your windows may end up becoming a point of entry for burglars. Obviously this is a worst-case scenario, but it remains a possibility that can’t be ignored. It’s not just the windows that might be affected, of course. Doors can be broken down, bicycles are stolen from their resting places, and locks end up broken. Even though it’s unlikely that your home’s security will be breached, we appreciate that it’s still a very worrying prospect and that people will be on the lookout for ways to keep their home as safe as possible.

Sold Secure LogoAt Warmseal, we are dedicated to ensuring that our products are as secure as possible, which is why we recommend Sold Secure to our customers. Sold Secure is an organisation that is committed to reducing the risk of crime via the assessment of security products. It was first established in 1992 by the Northumbria and Essex Police with backing and support from the Home Office. Since then, Sold Secure has gone on to become a hugely successful establishment and is now administered by non-profit organisation the Master Locksmiths Association, a group that is also interested in maintaining good security. The organisation also has several close ties with various constabularies and insurers so that they might continually improve upon their testing, taking any new information that these sources provide and putting it to good use.

The Sold Secure website categorises its approved products for you to look through, and customers can rest assured that these products have been rigorously tested. Workers for Sold Secure test these products in special, purpose-built laboratories so that they can garner the best results and properly distinguish between good and bad security products. This covers a wide variety of different security measures so everything is covered, including door locks, bike locks and security posts. The products are even graded through a Bronze, Silver and Gold system so you know which products are the most effective out of the approved range. Choosing more effective security measures of your home will not guarantee 100% safety, but it does bring some peace of mind and will still reduce any risk of crime.

We make windows, not locks, but at Warmseal your security and sense of wellbeing is our concern as well as your own. We want our customers to feel safe and protected in their own homes and so are happy to advise them on any extra measures they can take to make their homes more secure. As a result, we’ve done everything we can to make of windows as secure as possible and our products are built to the highest standards with only the best materials, so there’s plenty of security in that fact.
