The security of our homes has and always will be a major consideration for us. With home burglaries still a huge issue in the UK, it is as important as ever to ensure your home is as secure as possible. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that windows play a large part in this.

To address this, huge investment has been made in developing new materials and manufacturing and installation techniques to make windows incredibly secure, and thereby act as a strong deterrent to would-be burglars. As such, home owners in and around Winchester and Hampshire now have much more freedom when it comes to selecting strong, secure windows for your home.

Secured by Design [SBD] is a UK police initiative aimed at reducing crime through the recognition and promotion of innovative designs and products that improve home security. Only products considered by SBD to have been designed and created to the highest specification are awarded the ‘Secured by Design’ Police preferred logo. Therefore, if you see a product with this logo, you can rest assured that you are getting a quality product; one offering unrivalled protection and security.

One such example is our very own ‘Extreme Window’. Designed to provide maximum home security, the window has been developed in-house here at Wessex and features a market-leading locking system, components, hardware and frames. All of which combine to create a window offering the very best in security, style, warranty and, most importantly, peace of mind.
