The Importance of Window Security
Among the many burglaries that occur daily in the country a significant number takes place through windows.
While people are careful about their main doors and back doors, the windows are ignored or forgotten many times. It is important to secure windows especially if they are on the first floor since they become easily accessible.
Most people think that the best way of securing windows is to put a grill or a mesh on them. However, some areas are not allowed this as it is a dangerous option and goes against the fire security code.
Just as these bars prevent someone from coming in, they also prevent someone from using this as an escape route that can come in handy in case of a fire at home.
The best home protection tips simply involves smart thinking and good habits.
Ways in which you can ensure window security at home:
- All windows on the ground floor should be secured. If you like to have breeze coming in, you may use a double screen that is also secured to allow for some wind and breeze.
- If you have casement windows, you can use a device similar to a door bolt to close and lock them. All that you need to do is to turn the handle one way to allow the window to slide along with the contraption or turn it the other way to lock it in place preventing any kind of sliding.
- For double hung windows, a locking pin works well. These can be operated with a special key that one gets with the lock when purchased. You can also use a turnbuckle lock that can be operated using a key. These locks are also child proof since one needs to know where the pressure should be allowed to release.
- Windows on the first floor should not be ignored as well. Care should be taken that these windows are not easily accessible via a drain pipe or a tree. Prune the trees so that no one can climb one and reach an open window in the first floor and secure the ones that are too close to the drain pipes.
The battle against the windows is half won the moment you pay attention to them and assess how they can be opened from outside.
