Which Are Most Secure: uPVC, Wooden or Aluminium Windows?

I frequently blog about the aesthetic differences between uPVC, wood and aluminum windows, but that is not the only reason to consider all of your options. The window frame is an integral part of the unit, so it is logical that there are other factors at play.

While energy efficiency is fairly consistent across all types of windows, security remains a concern for homeowners. Are uPVC windows naturally stronger than wood frames? Could aluminum be easier to open?

Here is a quick primer on the window frame materials we offer, and some of the safety considerations to keep in mind when comparing them.

Round 1: uPVC

Our customers as uPVC because it is long lasting, durable and affordable. It can be manufactured in virtually any color, and makes any aspect of home presentable and stylish. So how do you classify in security betting?

The longevity of uPVC is one of its greatest assets. You will not find any putrefaction in the frames, so the intruders will not be able to award the window open, and you do not need to do anything to keep the frames in good shape. The frames themselves are solid and inpenetrable, so much so that it would be virtually impossible to break the uPVC without using noisy power tools. Naturally, this tactic that no thief would contemplate.

Round 2: Aluminum

The frames on the aluminum windows are thin and light, and they would forgive you for thinking they are less safe because they look so delicate. In fact, aluminum is one of the most anti-theft materials available because it is incredibly strong despite its featherweight appearance.

When uPVC and aluminum are considered in security bets, there is very little between them, provided they are installed by a professional company. Be careful with buying cheap aluminum windows from online auction websites, as the quality may be lacking.

Round 3: Wood

As we mentioned before, even the most solid wood frames will eventually show signs of weakness due to rot. The key here is to buy wood with your eyes open: you will have to put a little time in keeping the wood in good shape.

Wood is an enormously versatile material, and its natural beauty makes it an enduring favorite. So, while the wood is strong, just keep in mind that a sloppy window will always be a vulnerable spot in the home.

Bonus round: multipoint locks

Regardless of the material you choose for your window frames, locks are the most important aspect of your security. Whenever you have modern multipoint locks, each frame should also offer good security. Check your locks every 4-6 months, and make sure you always have a key for each window.
