Unbeatable protection for your home and family
Did you know that 40% of forced entries into houses in recent years were made through downstairs casement windows? For instance it can take as little as 20 seconds to jemmy open a typical window lock and if that does not work most ordinary friction hinges can be levered open just as easily.
To minimise this threat all of our windows are “Saracen Secure” with 8 Locking Points.
Saracen products are guaranteed for 5 years against failure of the hardware in the event of a break-in through the window or door offering extra peace of mind to the homeowner.
Saracen Window Security
A window fitted with a Saracen shoot bolt, Saracen high security friction hinge and an automatically locking handle, secures the window to the frame at 8 different points.
At the turn of a handle, a central deadlock or cams locate into the frame, whilst high strength bolts lock into keeps positioning in the top and bottom corners of the frame.
The friction hinge locks into the outer corners, making it impossible to force the window and greatly enhancing the weathering seal.
Saracen friction hinges are made of high grade stainless steel, and lock deep into end caps made from ICI Verton – material used in the aerospace and automotive industries.
All of this makes the hinge 4 times more resistant to attack than conventional hinges.
