When a determined burglar attempted to break through the timber windows at a house in London, he didn’t expect the frame to include a Dummy Sash Lok from GT Window Products.
The Dummy Sash Lok is a high security component that locks together the outerframe and sash on a casement window and despite a sustained attack, the burglar was forced to give up and leave empty handed.
The windows were manufactured and installed by Arden Windows, a Coventry based fabricator and installer of bespoke timber products. Arden says it uses components from GT Window Products to speed up fabrication and installation time and improve the overall security of their windows and doors.
Arden Windows’ technical manager, Phil Harding, commented: “While it’s unfortunate our customer was on the receiving end of an attempted burglary, it’s pleasing to see our windows were able to withstand such a prolonged attack. It was clearly a concerted effort by the burglar and the fact he didn’t succeed just goes to show how effective the Dummy Sash Lok from GT Window Products really is.”
GT Window Products managing director, Carl Taylor, commented: “At GT Window Products, we specialise in designing and manufacturing components that speed up fabrication time, provide cost savings, improve security, enable compliance with BS7950, improve weather performance and are easy to fit. I’m delighted that a window with our Dummy Sash Lok passed a real life security test with flying colours and the attempted burglary was foiled.”
