Burglar-Proof Your Windows

A secure home is a happy home. Locking your home’s doors is always a good start to protecting it and your family, but there are other steps you can take to make your home safer.

Zen Windows North Carolina offers a full range of vinyl windows with built-in security features. Here we share some easy and relatively inexpensive ways you can boost security at your Charlotte or Greensboro home.

Built-in Security From Zen Windows North Carolina

Every window style we offer — double-hung, casement, and more — comes with outstanding window security performance. Zen windows are built sturdy and secure, unlike other vinyl replacement windows with non-fusion welding or flimsy locking mechanisms. Our fusion-welded vinyl window frames and sashes provide superior strength, durability, and security.

Security innovation and features include:

  • Lotus replacement windows: Windows from the Lotus line comes with fiberglass reinforcement in the meeting rail. This technology ensures maximum structural performance and enhances the security of the window. The triple-pane design provides the ultimate energy efficiency, and the double-strength glass protects the window from storms, tree branches, and other mishaps.
  • Nirvana replacement windows: Windows from the Nirvana line have mental reinforcement in the meeting rail, ensuring ultimate structural performance and enhancing window security.
  • Karma replacement windows: The Karma line may be our base-level line of windows, but the optional metal reinforcement in the bottom sash and meeting rails can be included to increase the window’s security.

Delta heavy-duty latches, locks, and screen latches are included features on our Lotus and Nirvana lines. Our Karma line includes cam-action locks with a durable zinc-cast design. Plus, all our double-hung windows come with heavy-duty vent locks. This safety feature allows a window to remain partly open for ventilation but prevents it from being opened further.

Easy Tips to Make Your Windows Burglar-Proof

Most home break-ins occur through the front, back, side, and garage doors. The next method of choice for burglars is ground-floor windows. While some people opt for bars on their lower windows, many want to preserve the curb appeal of the windows themselves. Here are three easy ways to do that.

  1. If you don’t have a whole-home security system, consider investing in window and door sensors that emit ear-piercing alarms when triggered. Burglars hate drawing attention to what they’re doing.
  2. Install attractive pathway, flood, spot, and other lighting options to expose anyone approaching your home. The more lighting you have, the less chance an intruder will feel safe to break into your home.
  3. Ensure shrubbery near or under windows is trimmed back so burglars don’t have a place to hide.

CCTV and other smart camera systems can also deter someone from approaching your house. Burglars would much rather move on to a home they believe is less secure.
