Maximising Home Security with Timber Windows and Doors

Discover the benefits of Dale’s timber windows and doors for enhancing home security, and learn why they’re the superior choice for homeowners.

Home security is an essential concern for homeowners. When it comes to choosing windows and doors, the material used can significantly impact the level of security that is achievable. While several popular materials are available on the market, including PVC and aluminium, timber remains the superior choice for maximising home security and brings various other benefits to properties.

Timber is a natural insulator that boasts longevity, durability and resistance. At Dale Joinery, we put home security at the forefront of our design and manufacturing process.

Why Choose Timber?

One of the primary benefits of timber windows and doors is their natural strength and resistance to forced entry. Timber frames are solid and thick, making them much harder to break through than PVC or aluminium frames, which can often be thin and flimsy if not manufactured to the highest standards.

Dale Joinery's Multi-Point Locking Mechanisms

As a leading timber window and door supplier, we go the extra mile for our customers. How are our windows and doors different regarding security from any other in the market?

High security, multi-point locking mechanisms as standard on all our products.

Our multi-point system engages at various points on the frame to eliminate any areas of weakness.

We recommend installation guidelines to ensure the product is fitted securely into the apertures to further ensure the level of security. This is something that is often overlooked in both security and thermal performance.

10-year hardware guarantee.

Our products undertake rigorous quality control checks before they leave our factory ready for delivery. We also test all of our products (with the hardware installed) in independent & impartial test centres to PAS 24 standards (along with weather, U-Value and air permeability tests) to enable our products to conform with current building regulations standards.

We offer aftersales support and guidance after installation. Our NO quibble aftercare service includes service technicians available to rectify any issues following the purchase of your products, completely free of charge (unless damage is caused by the owner, then it may be chargeable).

Timber’s natural strength, durability, and customisation options make it an ideal choice for homeowners looking to enhance their home’s security while providing a natural aesthetic appeal.

Maintaining Your Timber Windows & Doors

Although timber is a low maintenance material, it’s still important to perform visual inspections and regular maintenance which includes minimal cleaning, to ensure the security of your windows and doors.

Visual inspections can be performed at any time of year, and they’re incredibly easy to carry out. All that is required is to inspect your windows and doors by checking the handles, glass, frames and locking mechanisms. Open each window and door to check the seals and hinges for wear.

For general cleaning, use a soft cloth with warm soapy water to remove dirt, marks or debris. We recommend cleaning your windows 2-3 times a year and with all Dale Joinery windows, they come supplied with a window cleaning kit.
