Better safe than sorry

VBH’s Q-secure security guarantee continues to grow strongly with five new fabricators signing up. Tradesmith, Windoworld Leicester, Climatec, Frameline and Nordic Aluminium are among the latest to sign up to VBH’s unique multi-brand guarantee.

Free to join, Q-secure covers windows, residential and folding patio doors manufactured in accordance with VBH’s Document Q specification, giving homeowners total peace of mind. Q-secure covers hardware in VBH’s own popular greenteQ range, such as the Invisifold slide & fold and Clearspan bi-folding systems. Hardware from leading VBH partners (tested to PAS24) are covered too, including Maco, Roto, Securistyle, Siegenia and Yale.

If a homeowner is a victim of a break-in due to hardware failure, VBH will compensate with a maximum of £3,250. This includes up to £250 towards the cost of an emergency locksmith or boarding up, £1,000 towards the cost of repairing or replacing the door or window (via an approved installer), £1,000 towards the homeowner’s insurance excess payment and a further £1,000 goodwill payment to help alleviate the distress caused by a break-in.

Mark Hutchinson, MD of Tradesmith, said: “We’re delighted to be part of Q-secure. We supply high-end, quality products, which we are confident will perform well for many years. This additional guarantee is an extra benefit for our installer customers. We don’t expect their homeowner customers will ever have to claim, but it adds to their confidence and peace of mind.”

Jayne Lovett of Climatec added: “Our customers can reassure their customers – the end-users – that the locks and handles on their new windows will be secure. Q-Secure gives peace of mind to the homeowner and is a great selling point for the installer.”

“It’s great to see more and more customers joining our guarantee and becoming ‘Q-secure approved’,” said Simon Monks, VBH managing director. “It’s simply the best security guarantee out there, covering a multitude of brands, and takes the stress away from your business. Best of all, it’s totally free to sign up!”
