Sliding Doors & Windows
We all love the feeling of fresh air flowing through our homes, especially during summer. Leaving windows and doors open to enjoy the breeze is tempting, but security is always a concern. The good news is that you can still have the luxury of open windows and even a sliding door while ensuring the safety and security of your home.
At the Italian Job Locksmiths, we offer a range of solutions to enhance the security of your windows and sliding doors. Most windows are compatible with multi-bolt locks, vent locks, or key lock wind-able chain-driven systems. These options provide additional locking mechanisms and can be easily installed to create a secondary lock position, giving you peace of mind knowing that your windows are secure even when left open.
Sliding doors, too, can benefit from added security measures. We can install a patio bolt designed to fit into a specific spot on sliding doors and offers a secondary lock position. This extra layer of security ensures that your sliding door remains firmly locked, providing an effective deterrent against unauthorised access.
Furthermore, it’s important to note that legislation requires windows on the second level of a home or any unit block to have locks or window restrictors in place to ensure children’s safety. These locks or restrictors are designed to prevent the windows from opening more than 125mm, significantly reducing the risk of accidents and falls.
At the Italian Job Locksmiths, we prioritise your safety and offer expert advice on the best security options for your windows and sliding doors. Our skilled technicians can assess your specific needs and recommend the most suitable products to enhance the security of your home without compromising on ventilation or natural light.
Stay safe and enjoy the joy of open windows and sliding doors. Contact the Italian Job Locksmiths today and let us help you create a secure and comfortable living environment.
