Enhanced Security with the Right Replacement Window Glass Solution
People usually consider replacement window glass options to ensure they get the most energy efficient windows with the most appropriate glass choice based on their lot orientation, climate, surrounding structures and how they plan to use a room. However, there are several choices that automatically strengthen your home security system. Here are two examples.
- Tempered glass, which is many times stronger than standard window glass options, resists direct impact if an intruder tries to gain entry to your home.
- Patterned glass, which obscures the view, without blocking all of the natural sunlight, enhances privacy while preventing people from seeing you or expensive artwork or electronics that may create a temptation to attempt a break-in.
Locks, Latches & Guards
Locks and latches deter uninvited guests from tampering with your home’s windows. Because you cannot access recessed locks from the outside of your home, many people in the industry call these locking devices, pick-resistant. In some cases, homeowners can design extra large windows with two locks.
Night latches, sash stops and child guards allow you to open windows a few inches for ventilation, without compromising safety or security. With just a four-inch gap, no one can slip in through the window and children cannot accidentally fall through an open window if left unattended. It is more common to see sash stops in double-hung and sliding windows, but some casement configurations have guards and security stops as well.
Increasing Security with Fibrex Frames
Fibrex composite window frame material is best known for energy-efficiency performance and low maintenance. The patented materials creates window frames that are similar in appearance to wood, without the susceptibility to damage from mold, rot, decay or other weakness caused by moisture and extreme weather events. Along with providing superior heat transfer control, Fibrex sash components deliver additional strength and durability not seen in most vinyl and metal frames.
Custom Features & Replacement Window Styles

For example, the lift out sash design of our sliding windows makes it easier to exit your home during a fire or other event that demands a quick escape route. Casement windows by design have a multi-point locking system that prevents air and moisture leaks and seals your window tightly, reducing the chance of a break-in. Plus, the single operational lever makes opening the window fully for rapid exit even faster than removing panels.
