Sash jammers are great for increasing the overall security of your windows or doors. They are small and inexpensive devices that once installed will pivot over the door or window frame making it much more difficult for a forced entry to take place. Sash jammers are often used on uPVC windows and doors.
Although sash jammers are a huge benefit to home security it is important that you remember that they should never be used as your main or only security measure. These work best alongside high security multipoint locking mechanisms and cylinders that either meet or exceed current British standard TS007.
Sash jammers can be found in most DIY shops and often cost around £10, however, even the best sash jammer on the market cannot guarantee that you wont fall victim to a break-in at your property. With this said they will make the job much more difficult for a burglar. Burglars are looking for easy targets, they want to be in and out of a property as quickly as possible, without drawing any attention to themselves. So having a sash jammer installed making a forced entry more difficult for a burglar could just be the difference between a break-in and an attempted break-in.
Home security measures are constantly improving. The security industry is working hard to combat new techniques burglars are coming up with to gain entry to homes and businesses. This means that there is always going to be room for improvement with your home security measures to ensure that your property is as safe and secure as it could be.
