Increasing the Security of Your Conservatory

 

Conservatories are beautiful and elegant additions to any home. It maximises the space and it can be a refuge from the typical view residents see inside their home. But because of its characteristics, transparent materials, such as glass, conservatories are often thought of to be a soft target for thieves and burglars who are ready to take an opportunity.

 

Although your conservatory may have a lot of glass and transparent material in it, it does not mean that anybody can break into it. Prove all those opportunists wrong by heightening the security of your conservatory. Here are a few things you can follow to improve the security of your conservatory.

 

• If you are still in the stage of planning your conservatory, make sure you include having internal beading on your glass. For your double glazing windows, the beading which keeps the glass of your window frame should be fitted inside, unlike some old windows where in it is fitted outside.

 

Having this done will make it difficult or impossible to remove the glass of your window from the outside. This would leave intruders needing to smash the glass and attract attention.

 

• Your doors must be fitted with multi point locking systems. So whether you have French doors or patio doors, these will have multiple locks in different areas of your door. These locks are installed internally, which makes it difficult to break. This is possible for aluminium, uPVC, and wooden doors of your conservatory.

 

• Another thing you can do is to ask your installer whether your conservatory is covered by BS 7950. This is a certification given by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) that it passed laboratory tests regarding its security.

 

• If you are having a conservatory with a glass roof, make sure you use laminated or toughened glass. This kind of glass has a strong impact resistance, which means it will not break easily. Apart from that, this kind of glass has the capacity to cut almost 90% of the sun’s UV rays.

 

Apart from improving the security features of your conservatory itself, you can also do other measures from outside and the surrounding areas of the conservatory to further improve the security of your property. Simply installing security lights, strong locks on garden gates, and even planting thorny bushes in your garden or near the conservatory could deter would-be criminals.
