On Wednesday 15th March 1995 by our invitation, Crime Prevention Officers form across the region attended a demonstration of our new high security locking system and security hinges fitted as standard to our latest range of Windows, Doors and Patio Doors. The standard test is to provide a 10" chisel and 10 " screwdriver for a 3 minute attempted break-in, for our test we supplied a hammer, chisel, screwdriver, battery drill and crowbar and instead of 3 minutes we allowed 15 minutes.
The test was conducted by an officer of Durham Constabulary who firmly believed he could gain access through any window in well under 15 minutes. He and all other people who attended the demonstration were extremely impressed and agreed that this level of security should enable people to rest a little easier at night or whenever their property is unattended.
In June 2000 following an update to our security systems we were visited again by officers from Durham Constabulary who witnessed and recorded video footage of our products resisting strenuous break-in tests. All of our products stood firm once again whilst some competitors products failed, some times is seconds. This video footage has been distributed to all police stations and a copy is available to view at our showroom.
All of our products can be viewed at our extensive factory showroom without a prior appointment during office hours which are:
8 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday and 9 am to 4:30 pm Saturday.
Other times are available on request.
