Windows - Secure by Design

If you are having your windows replaced you should know this. The Building Regulations now require all windows to meet the standard "secure by Design". Essentially this means that all locks should be designed to this standard but more significantly all ground floor glass needs to be laminated which will have an impact on the costs.

  1. The ground floor glass needs to be what is called "tempered". This is caused by reheating the glass a second time after it has cooled. The purpose of this is so that in case the glass is broken it will shatter upon impact thus leaving small shards of glass instead of jagged glass which could injure.
