Increasing number of people are comforted by the Jackloc safety window restrictor, to keep out the opportunist thief
Home security is a universal issue that affects us all. Latest statistics reveal a shocking 32% rise in domestic burglaries across England and Wales! Considering burglaries are estimated to happen every 40 seconds in the UK, it seems that door locks are a homeowners first port of call to strengthen their property against potential intruders. But what about your windows? 30% of thieves gain access through an insecure window; proving that window locks are just as important. So how can you tell which window safety restrictors are up to the job?
Do your window safety restrictors include a key within their design? It stands to reason that window locks with keys are much more solid and robust than those without. The innovative Jackloc design brings relief to people particularly worried about opening their windows for fear of burglary (even during the daytime!); proven by 98% of Jackloc customers stating they felt safer. The Jackloc range offers the choice of key-lockable or push and turn operation, along with a permanently-fixed cable. Be sure to keep the key out of sight (but in a safe place!) just in-case the glass gets broken mid-burglary.
Is your window lock visible from the outside? According to experts, the best window safety restrictors are visible from the outside of the building. Psychologically, a high quality, robust looking window lock will drastically reduce the chance of thieves seeing your home as an easy target. Available in an array of colours and finishes, the Jackloc range is a discrete yet distinctive deterrent.
Do your window restrictors provide safety standard reassurance? Safety testing is important for all fenestration products, to instil confidence in their reliability and performance. British Standards (BS), European Standard (EN) and International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) standards ensure that glazing products meet appropriate standards in relevant key areas – Jackloc is accredited by all these bodies and more.
