Double Glazing and Security
As home improvement experts, we recognise and adhere to our commitment to your safety and security. We do this in two ways, installing robust stainless steel locks and designing our windows to repel unwanted thieves.
Our stainless steel locks are manufactured by Yale, the most secure and trusted name in the competitive lock market. We have such confidence in Yale that we fully back and support their guarantees and warranties.
Only Yale offer a ten year guarantee against mechanical malfunction. Each of their shoot bolt locks are highly weather resistant, the ideal solution for the somewhat unpredictable East Sussex weather.
Each shoot bolt comes complete with £1000 towards home contents insurance in the extremely unlikely event of successful forced entry as a result of the lock failing.
Finally, each of our double glazed windows and doors are designed to make it near on impossible to break in. We play the old out of sight out of mind trick, which benefits both the security and improves the life expectancy of your double glazed windows and doors.
We build all locks and hinges into the robust uPVC double glazed frame. Our theory is, if would be burglars cannot see or locate the locks and hinges, how would they know which part of the unit to target?
On a final note, fitting all hinges and locks keeps them out of the way of corrosive and harmful weather conditions. As far as maintenance goes, we recommend an occasional wipe with a hot soapy towel once every couple of months. Just to remove unwanted grit and dust that may have built up throughout everyday use.
Double Glazing and Energy Efficiency
The big one, how does double glazing save you money on your energy bills? It is common knowledge that double glazing utilises your East Sussex homes heating, but how does it actually work? And, how much energy will it really save you?
First off, the science behind double glazing is pretty straight forward. Essentially two panes of glass are internally beaded within a reinforced uPVC frame. The distance has to be precise, too far and the air trapped between the glass will circulate.
If all goes to plan, which it will when you choose Windows Xpress, the air within the uPVC frame remains stationary, forming what is commonly referred to as a thermal blanket. This thermal blanket prevents cold air from entering your home and your heating from escaping.
In our opinion, double glazing is always worth the investment. Recent research carried out by the National Insulation Association has proven that ill fitted windows and doors are directly responsible for losing twenty percent of the total loss of energy from your East Sussex home!
So, by choosing double glazing professionals like us. You can expect to see a reduction in your expensive heating bills. Great now, throughout warm summer evenings. Brilliant in far colder, darker and miserable wet days of winter.
