Window Security: Innovative Locks and Safety Features for Peace of Mind

Window Security: Innovative Locks and Safety Features for Peace of Mind

We’re lucky to call Lynchburg, Danville, Charlottesville, and surrounding cities home. Central Virginia is one of the most beautiful parts of the country, offering superior scenery, plenty of outdoor hiking and adventures, a climate that lets us enjoy all four seasons, and not to mention, Virginia is one of the safest states in America.

Though our state is one of the safest compared to many others, there is still a risk for anyone to be a victim of crime. We go to great lengths to protect our families from violence and danger, whether we enroll in self-defense classes, install a security system, carry pepper spray, etc. You can never be too careful; adding window security to your home makes your loved ones even safer.

What window security options are available? Keep reading to learn about some innovative locks and safety features so you can have peace of mind and protect those you love most.


Innovative Locks & Safety Features


Windows should always have a locking mechanism to give a homeowner extra security. Though all home windows have locks, not all are innovative or offer much safety. Below are some innovative locks and safety features that can give homeowners peace of mind:



Composite Reinforced Locks

Composite reinforced locks are one of the safest locks you can get on a window. This innovative lock adds extra security to residential windows and keeps your home better protected against intruders. You can rest easy knowing all the windows in your home are locked tight with composite reinforced locks installed on your windows.

Another bonus of installing residential windows with composite reinforced locks is the air-tight seal they provide. This innovative window lock pulls the meeting rails and keeper toward one another, creating an air-tight seal, eliminating the chance for drafty windows, leaks, and other dangers of drafty windows to occur.


Double Strength Glass

What good is a residential window if it doesn’t have heavy-duty glass? Double-strength glass windows offer many benefits. For one, they provide homeowners with extra safety since double-strength glass is stronger than other types, making it extremely difficult to break. Next, they offer exceptional energy savings, saving homeowners nearly 30% on their energy bills by preventing drafty windows.

Double-strength windows also reduce outside noise. This is especially great if you live on a busy street, near a school, or have a lot of traffic or noisy neighbors that generate loud noises. Double-strength glass windows reduce outside noises, making for a quieter and more relaxing home.


Wide & Deep Interlocks

Another safety feature residential windows can provide is a wide and deep interlock. This safety feature helps enhance the locking mechanism and provides a tighter seal to prevent drafts. 

Wide and deep interlocks in the window provide extra security for the window’s locking mechanism by making it nearly impossible to unlock the window with a screwdriver, knife, or other commonly used tool. Intruders won’t be able to unlock the window from the outside, keeping your home safer. Forced entry through the windows will be nearly impossible when you install windows with wide and deep interlocks.

Installing windows in your home with added security, such as innovative locks and safety features, keeps your loved ones and home safe from intruders. When installing new windows, look for safety features like composite reinforced locks, double-strength glass, and wide and deep interlocks.
