Choosing secure windows is crucial for homeowners in Oswestry and its surrounding areas, where maintaining safety and protecting property are top priorities. OWD Group offers expert advice and a range of window solutions designed to enhance security while complementing the architectural character of your home. Here’s a detailed guide, incorporating tips tailored to your specific needs:


Frame material matters

When considering window security, the choice of frame material plays a significant role. We recommend uPVC frames for their durability, weather resistance, and affordability. Our frames are known for their robust construction, making them difficult to break or tamper with, ideal for residential settings where security is paramount. According to a study by the Home Office, windows are the primary point of entry in over 70% of burglaries further stressing how important the strength and durability of your frame needs to be.

For those seeking a blend of modern aesthetics and enhanced security, our aluminium frames are also an excellent choice. Aluminium offers slightly more inherent strength and resistance to forced entry (compared to our PVC), making it suitable for both residential and commercial applications in Oswestry.


Construction and reinforcement

Beyond frame material, the construction and reinforcement of windows are critical factors in enhancing security. We emphasise the importance of reinforced frames that prevent bending or breaking. Whether opting for uPVC or aluminium frames, OWD ensures internal reinforcements and strong materials are incorporated to enhance structural integrity and security measures.

Locking mechanisms

Secure locking mechanisms are essential for effective window security. Our windows feature multi-point locking systems that lock securely at multiple points along the frame. This design significantly improves resistance against forced entry, providing homeowners in Oswestry with peace of mind.

Protecting against intrusions requires windows that can withstand heavy impacts. OWD offers windows with more impact-resistant glazing options such as double or triple glazing. These glazing options are designed to withstand blows and deter potential intruders effectively, ensuring maximum security for Oswestry homes.


Compatibility with security features

To further enhance security, OWD’s window solutions are compatible with additional security features such as grilles or bars. Both uPVC and aluminium frames can support these features, providing homeowners with the flexibility to tailor their security measures according to their specific needs and preferences.


Integration with modern technology

In the age of smart homes, Our window solutions are designed to integrate seamlessly with smart home systems. This integration allows for remote monitoring and control, enhancing security by providing real-time alerts and status updates.

OWD’s commitment to quality and security is underscored by certifications such as Secured by Design (SBD) and compliance with British Standards (BS), ensuring windows meet stringent security performance criteria.
