Tips for choosing secure windows: A guide for trade professionals

As trade professionals, your expertise and guidance can significantly impact your customers’ satisfaction and security. One crucial aspect to consider when advising clients is the selection of secure windows for homes. Pinnacle Windows, a leading manufacturer, provides top-quality products that offer both aesthetic appeal and robust security features. Here are some essential tips to help your customers choose secure windows, ultimately enhancing their home security and your professional reputation.


1. Frame material matters

uPVC frames: Pinnacle Windows specialises in uPVC windows and doors, renowned for their durability, weather resistance, and difficulty to break or tamper with. Our stylish uPVC casement windows from Liniar combine aesthetic appeal with robust security. Made from premium-grade materials, these frames are guaranteed not to warp, split, or discolour for ten years, ensuring long-lasting security and satisfaction for your customers.


2. Secure locking mechanisms

Multi-point locking systems: Security is paramount, and our uPVC casement windows feature advanced Yale locking systems. These multi-point locks provide superior resistance to forced entry, ensuring the highest levels of security for any home. By choosing windows with these locking mechanisms, you can assure your customers of their enhanced safety.

Secure handle integration: Our frames are designed to support secure handles with built-in locks, preventing the window from being opened from the outside. This additional security measure is a significant selling point for homeowners concerned about safety.


3. Impact resistance

Glazing options: Pinnacle Windows’ products are designed to be thermally efficient and secure. Highlight our impact-resistant glazing options to your customers, which can withstand blows from heavy objects. This type of glazing often includes multiple layers or special coatings to increase durability. By offering this, you not only provide energy efficiency but also an additional layer of security, making the windows a tougher obstacle for potential intruders.

Liniar’s double-action bubble gasket: Liniar’s patented double-action bubble gasket offers an unbroken seal, even in the corners, making our windows weatherproof and leak-free. This technology adds another level of impact resistance, ensuring that the windows remain sealed and secure under various weather conditions, further enhancing the overall security of the home.

4. Certification for secure windows

Secured by Design (SBD): Our Resurgence Flush Casement Windows are accredited with PAS24, Secured by Design, and Part Q certifications. These recognitions demonstrate our commitment to providing secure and high-quality products. Informing your customers about these certifications can reinforce their trust in the security features of the windows you offer. The Secured by Design initiative, in particular, is a police initiative aimed at improving the security of buildings, providing an additional layer of assurance.

British Standards (BS): Look for windows certified to British Standards like BS 7950 for enhanced security performance. These certifications indicate that the windows have undergone rigorous testing to meet stringent security criteria. Explaining the importance of these certifications to your customers can help them understand the value and reliability of the windows you are recommending.


5. Weather resistance

Durable coatings: Security features must be maintained over time, and our windows are equipped with weather-resistant coatings to prevent corrosion. This durability ensures that the security features remain effective, providing long-term peace of mind for homeowners. The coatings help maintain the window’s integrity and appearance, ensuring they continue to provide protection against both weather elements and potential intruders.

Thermal breaks in uPVC: While typically a feature of aluminium windows, thermal breaks in uPVC frames can significantly enhance their weather resistance and overall thermal performance. These breaks help to prevent heat transfer, keeping the interior warmer during colder months. By offering windows with thermal breaks, you can ensure your customers enjoy both enhanced energy efficiency and long-lasting security.

6. Simple maintenance

Low-maintenance materials: Our uPVC windows are designed to be low maintenance and resistant to wear and tear. Highlighting these benefits to your customers can assure them of the long-lasting security and durability of their investment. Low-maintenance materials reduce the need for frequent repairs or replacements, making them a cost-effective choice in the long run.
