When renovating or undertaking a self-build project, the natural priorities for your new home will be ensuring its look and feel exceed expectations and that it offers a good level of security.
Sometimes those two fundamentals can be at odds. It might be that your preferred set of windows and doors doesn’t offer the security you need. Or, to ensure a high-level of protection, you’re forced to source windows and doors from several different suppliers, leading to a design mishmash.
Fortunately, that kind of compromise can now be put in the past.
Continuing our industry-leading stance, Reynaers At Home has become the first aluminium windows and doors firm to have both its sliding patio doors and sliding folding doors systems recognised by the coveted Secured by Design scheme.
Secured by Design is a police initiative to provide consumers with confidence that materials used in the building trade have been independently tested and help create a safer and more secure environment.
The Secured by Design accreditation makes it simple for householders to gauge the security performance of a window or door. As a general rule, if a window or door has this accreditation, you can be confident it has been thoroughly tested and is considered to offer a high level of security.
Of course, it wouldn’t be much help if just our sliding door and sliding folding door systems had the Secured by Design accreditation. The good news is that lots of our window systems already hold this endorsement, enabling you to now select glazing for your whole project without the hassle of multiple suppliers or the compromise of inconsistent design.
