Security is key

At ProWindows and Conservatories we take security very seriously.

Did you know in as little as 13 seconds an average intuder can get past a door lock using the most simple of DIY tools? Even the BBC have recently reported on how locks are being ‘snapped’ to gain access to people’s homes.

Infact the majority of doors in UK and Ireland could be using vunerable euro cylinder locks, prone to ‘snapping’ due to their weak construction.

Here at ProWindows we do things differently, we use patented ‘Snap Secure Technology’ that helps block out intruders, helping to keep your home safe and secure.

The Problem

Lock snapping, or cylinder snapping, and the problem with euro cylinder door locks.

Burglars have discovered what the locksmith and hardware industry have known for years. It doesn’t matter how many hook or dead bolts you have on your door, the weak point is the cylinder lock.

Due to inherent weakpoints in the door cylinder lock, having little material to give robust strength and the screw fixing enhancing this weakness, using simple tools, a burglar can “snap” the cylinder and gain access to the door mechanism and open the door – in seconds!
