Secure as standard: how Eurocell goes further to protect your customers

21 December 2022

Give your customers ongoing peace of mind with Eurocell’s market-leading door and window security features.

Keeping their property secure is the first priority for any homeowner, especially when they are ordering new windows and doors.

Your customers will have a variety of questions, so it’s vital you can explain what security standards are being met by the products you install.

Here’s our guide to everything you need to know…

Security features in composite doors

Most burglars usually attack the lock cylinder – so we’ve made sure all our composite doors feature a high security 3-star cylinder to protect your customers against the most common forms of attack.

These cylinders are designed to defend against bumping, picking and drilling, along with providing significant resistance to lock-snapping – a favoured entry method of many burglars.

We’ve also reinforced the locking points on each of our composite doors with a 5-point system that features two hooks and three deadbolts fixed into the frame, providing excellent resistance against intruders.

Finally, the entire doorset meets the stringent PAS24:2016 rating which, along with the 3-star cylinders and multiple deadbolts, creates a safe and secure solution for your customers.

Security features in UPVC windows

High security UPVC windows are an essential complement to high security doors. Because if the door is secure but the windows are weak, burglars will soon take advantage.

Every Eurocell window comes with a locking handle as standard, providing an extra layer of security for your customers without making opening or closing the windows any more difficult than normal.

To protect against other forms of intrusion through windows, all of our range feature internal beading. This eliminates the ability to remove the beading and gain entry by removing the pane of glass.

Finally, we ensure that all our windows are tested to BS6375-3:2009, the UK-recognised standard for security on window systems as developed by the British Standards Institute (BSI).
