Is PVCu more sucure than wood?
No. A blowtorch will bend a PVCu frame; a gasket can easily be removed with a screwdriver. No insurance company across Britain will give a householder a reduction on household insurance because a house has PVCu windows. Double glazed windows may be harder to smash (true of wood or PVCu) but are the bane of fire brigades because they are difficult to get into in an emergency. Older PVCu units are particularly susceptible to security failures and less expensive units can be relatively easy to lever open and even completely remove. At Sliding Sash Solutions we have a good range of security locks available for sash windows.
