Smash and grab incidents, break-ins and home invasions have unfortunately, been increasing. And while many of us still believe it won’t happen to us, it may be best to live by the adage of, “why take a chance”.
So, we’re writing to let you in on an industry secret. The two rules of thumb all security related businesses look at:
Windows are the most vulnerable place in your house
Always remember that burglars fear two things: being heard, and being seen.
The two most vulnerable areas of homes (and businesses too) are windows and doors.
Knowing this, it may become easier to understand the way a burglar is examining your home.
Windows are the most vulnerable point of entry. One quick and quiet tap on the glass with a crowbar or hammer, and a thief can easily break in.
This is where Stealth Armour can help increase your home’s security to the maximum. Our 200 series security laminate, when installed properly, can stop break in entry. Heck its bullet and bomb rated.
Besides, what burglar is going to stand there and repeatedly hit the window over and over?
Another question to ask yourself is, even if a home camera & alarm system is in place, will it stop an invader from getting in?
This is where our top rated security laminate becomes true armour against the culprits by keeping them out, giving you time to be safe, while waiting for the authorities to come.
Other issues which you should be aware of with your windows and screens is that they may be equipped with the standard, older (sometimes newer) types of screens and window latches. These are often inadequate in deterring a burglar. The common window latch can be opened from the outside with a butter knife and just five seconds; the screens require a penknife and an additional five seconds. We recommend replacing old equipment and always making sure your windows are locked.
Affordable home security is something to consider carefully. And when making choices, remember, if a culprit can’t get in, then a culprit can’t get at you, your family or your possessions.
Stealth Armour’s 200 ACE series offers that distinct difference in security as opposed to cameras and alarms, and its even more affordable.
