Sash jammers are small low budget devices that can be attached to a window or door to improve the overall level of security. They are often used on uPVC windows and doors and once they have been installed the handle on them is able to pivot and secure over the window or door frame making it stronger and much more difficult to force entry.
Although sash jammers are a great added security measure, these used alone will not be enough to protect your property from potential break-in’s. So, it is still vital that you have high security locks installed that either meet or exceed current TS007 standards.
Sash jammers are reasonably cheap to buy and can be purchased from most DIY and hardware shops, they usually cost around £10. Although using a sash jammer cannot guarantee that a burglar will not be able to gain entry to your property, they can definitely make it much more difficult and take much longer for them to attempt a break-in. Burglars like to be able to get in and out of a property as quickly as possible so having a sash jammer installed could be the difference between a break-in and an attempted break-in.
When it comes to home security you should be continuously looking at new ways you can better improve the overall security of your property. The security industry is constantly working hard to come up with new and innovative ways to make break-ins much more difficult for burglars and to combat new techniques that burglars are coming up with to gain entry to a property. Therefore, it is likely that there will always be something available that you can implement to better improve the overall security of your property.
