Increasing window security in your home: Window security options
Double hung windows, casement windows, and sliding windows come with many lock options available to them. In fact, some of these options allow you to lock them securely and still allow for a small opening to enjoy a breeze. Although many of these window locks make allowance for a small opening they still provide security. They do this by preventing the window from being forced open all the way. However, there are many lock options to choose from for your windows. Here are some of the more popular window lock options that could work for your windows. Give us a call to discuss your options.
Pin locks- These locks secure a window by using a pin that slides into the window frame or casing or attaches one window sash to another.
Keyed locks- Keyed locks offer the highest level of security for window locks. They require a key to open them and are difficult to force open.
Sliding locks- Sliding windows have locks that secure a window on both sides. The lock attaches in a position where each window frame can lock into place. Sliding windows can be less secure than other types of windows because they can be easily lifted off the track. This is why it's recommended that a bar is kept inside the track to prevent the window from being forced open. The same approach is recommended for homes with sliding doors.
Folding latches- Folding latches are very common types of locks. Windows with these types of locks can be latched closed by a fixture that secures one window to another. These locks are standard on several kinds of windows.
Wedge locks- These locks allow the window to be ajar to allow a breeze or sunlight. However, this locking mechanism allows the window to be open to a certain point but no further, preventing it from being forced open all the way.
Key track stop- These locks prevent any movement on a window track. They are typically used with windows that have a track like sliding windows or standard windows.
