When looking for the right windows for your home, it’s not just the way they look that’s important. Security is paramount when it comes to selecting the best products for your property, keeping out intruders who could put the safety of your family and possessions at risk.
That’s why we offer an extensive range of Kömmerling windows to homes across Surrey and London, known for their high security features. But why are these products considered some of the best on the market and what protection will they provide to your property?
Kömmerling’s uPVC collection were the first products to gain approval from the British Board of Agrément for their high security standards. The BBA certification is recognised in the construction industry as a symbol of quality, gained through robust tests and assessments. This not only encourages innovation and safe development but provides reassurance to users, manufacturers, insurers, regulators and homeowners that this is a product which meets the highest of standards on the market.
Last updated in 2015, the Government published Approved Document Q regulations which cover the required security in dwellings for windows and doors. This includes the standards which need to be met for a home to resist attempted break-ins from a burglar. Kömmerling windows ensure these regulations are adhered to, fitted with the appropriate hardware to protect against unauthorised access.
To create the window security desired by homeowners, Kömmerling has included a range of locking features to help. This includes multi-point locks and key locking handles to keep your windows secure. Single leg glazing beads can also be installed to achieve a high-quality seal. In addition, a full depth Eurogroove enhances what is already a highly secure window. This feature is located on the inside of the windows, allowing for shootbolts to be installed without having an impact on the quality of the glazing. Steel reinforcements are also used to create improved structural strength.
Other Benefits of Kömmerling Windows
While home security is high on the agenda when selecting new windows for your home, it’s also worth noting the other advantages available from Kömmerling products. For one, their innovative solutions include a multi-chamber design for enhanced energy efficiency, often using five chambers instead of the traditional three. Slimmer sightlines and weathertight seals provide an appealing look which also keeps the elements at bay. It’s also possible to customise the look of your windows with an array of colours, finishes (including realistic woodgrain) and different styles to choose from.
