In addition, in areas with high winds along the coast, the sash is suspended in the air when the casement window is opened. Poor quality blades or hinges are easily swayed by wind and fall off. In order to prevent such accidents, you can actively choose flat open or push-pull type windows and doors.

3. Glass breakage
At present, 80% of home windows and doors are made of ordinary glass arranged by the decorator. After this type of doors and windows are broken, glass blocks of different sizes will appear, and they are extremely easy to break. Only when single-sided or double-sided tempered glass is selected, the glass will only show a “spider web-like” slag shape after being subjected to a huge impact, and the edges are smooth, which is not easy to cause harm to people.

Tips for windows and doors safety

1. Lock your doors and windows when you closed. If your window is not equipped with a lock, you can buy a new lock at the home improvement store. Installing locks increases your windows and doors safety.

2. Install window trinkets to limit how wide you can open it. As we know children and pets can easily fall out of the window and if they are left unattended, thieves can easily come in through the spacious windows. Keep your windows open no more than 4 inches with jewelry.

3. Large furniture should be moved away from windows. Children and pets can be dangerous by climbing on the sofa or armchair.

It is mainly used for inlaying in fire doors, windows, partition walls and other fire and earthquake resistance The place.

Multi-layer composite glass can also provide anti-theft, bulletproof and anti-riot properties.
