Keeping your home secure

secure flush windows

As the seasons change and the nights start to draw in, homeowners often start to think more about security. At Evolution, we give our utmost priority to ensuring our windows and doors are as secure as possible by using the latest advancements in technology and keeping up to date with building regulations.

Secure Windows

You are six times more likely to be burgled if you don’t have window locks. All of our timber alternative Storm and Flush windows feature a high security shoot bolt locking system. These window locks engage on all three sides of the opening casement to maximise protection against unwanted intrusion. The other side of the opening is secured with SAC bolts. We also offer a selection of locking handles for extra security.

Secure Doors

Our timber alterative doors are not only beautifully designed to complement your style and home, but they are built to be sturdy and meticulously tested for security standards. Households are six times more likely to be burgled if they don’t have double locks or deadlocks on exterior doors. Each of our doors comes supplied with high security multi-point locking built into the door itself. The locks and cams engage in 10 different positions to offer maximum protection. In addition, high security cylinders incorporate anti-drill, anti-pick, anti-snap and anti-bump features.

Building Regulations

If you are involved in a new-build project or a new home created by change of use (e.g. a barn conversion), you must fit windows and doors that have been designed to reasonably resist unauthorised access to intruders, and which pass the test requirements of PAS24:2012. Our highly experienced Customer Service team will be able to assist you with any questions you may have about the current regulations.
