Nowadays, to protect an apartment or house from the burglars, you do not need to install window grilles. It is enough to order the installation of window security locks. As a rule, burglars do not break glass to get inside the house, as it is quite noisy.

They just break open the locks using a regular screwdriver. Safety window lock mechanisms of sophisticated design for UPVC profiles, make it a lot more challenging for intruders to enter the apartment.

Residents of the first and last floors, as well as the owners of private houses, have to take measures to protect their windows from intruders. It is possible to protect the window with grilles designed for UPVC structures, but it is expensive, not aesthetically pleasing or functional. Even washing the window, in this case, turns into a real test.

Ten years ago, all that property owners could count on were metal bars, and few people knew about anti-burglar locks. According to statistics, in 7 out of 10 cases, burglars gain entry through a window.

Meanwhile, the installation of high-grade window lock mechanisms is the simplest and most affordable means of protecting your home. Such locks do not spoil the appearance of the window or obstruct visibility. They are inexpensive, and the installation is not difficult for a person well-versed in the window lock mechanisms.

Locks branded as burglar-proof for UPVC profiles are a set of locking mechanisms, hinges and latches designed to open and close the window. The design of the locks directly affects the burglary resistance of the window.

The replacement of protective fittings on already installed UPVC windows is carried out in several steps:

  • Tempered glass is inserted into the UPVC frame. A special protective film can be used as an alternative.
  • Next step is to open the transom and check the manufacturer’s stamp on it. Accessories from another company will not work because the holes for fasteners must match.
  • Dimensions of the existing fittings must be measured and recorded. Burglar-resistant window locks hardware is selected based on the data.
  • Protective caps, as well as the pin installed in the upper hinge, are removed to take off the window.
  • Sash is laid on a flat surface; all accessories are removed with a screwdriver.
  • Next, the fittings are taken off the frame. At this point, it is a good idea to sketch a layout of the main window mechanisms so that nothing is confused when installing new locks. Mark the places of contact points on the frame and sash.
  • Corner mechanisms must be placed first. The main drive is attached next. Its fixation is carried out in the open position. If the accessory rail is greater than the required length, then the excess end is cut off on one side.
  • All parts must be lubricated with oil before installing sash and frame hinges.
  • Correct operation is checked after hanging the sash on the frame. If it requires force to turn the handle, there might be an error in measurements. It will be necessary to dismantle the parts, re-measure and install them again. Otherwise, the last step is to put in place additional support points and an overlay on the handle. If the window opens and closes freely, the installation is complete.

Before installing the locking mechanism, you need to decide on its resistance class which affects the complexity of the work.

Burglar-proof systems will work if you entrust the job to professionals that know how to install fittings and adjust them, understand all the subtleties of process and can recommend you a rational solution.
