Sash Jammers: How Do They Work?
Sash jammers are small and inexpensive devices that attach to a window or door to increase its overall security level. These are usually used on uPVC windows and doors and once they are installed the handle can pivot and secure over the door or window frame making it more difficult for any sort of forced entry.
It is important to remember that although sash jammers are a great tool to use as an extra level of security they shouldn’t be used as your main or only security measure. So, it is also important that you have high security multipoint locking mechanisms and cylinders that either meet or exceed current British Standards of TS007.
Sash jammers are relatively cheap, you can pick them up from most DIY and hardware shops for around £10 but even the best sash jammer cannon guarantee to stop a burglar from breaking into your property, however they can certainly make it much more difficult and take a lot longer for them to achieve their goal of gaining entry to your home, and this in itself can be the difference between a break-in and an attempted break -in as burglars like to get in and out quickly so if it is taking longer than they anticipated to gain entry to a property it is possible they will give up and find an easier target.
Home security measures are something you should constantly be looking at and see how things can be improved upon, the security industry is continuously coming up with new innovative ways to combat burglars so there will always be new and improved security measures for you to install and add to your home to keep it as safe and secure as it can be.
