Part Q Windows - The New Standard in Home Security
Are you looking to secure your home with the latest in window technology? Part Q windows are the answer! Certified by the highest security standards, these secure windows provide superior protection against break-ins and weather damage. Part Q windows are the new standard for home security and are now required in all new builds. Whether you need hardwood or softwood windows and doors, you can trust Part Q windows to keep your home and family safe.
What is Part Q?
Part Q is a new certification standard introduced in 2015, by Building Regulations, in the United Kingdom to ensure that all new build homes have the highest levels of security installed. This means that all windows and doors must meet a number of security standards. Casement windows, in particular, must be fitted with multi-point locking systems, secure hinges and internal glazing beads to ensure that they are as secure as possible. By meeting these requirements, new build windows will provide homeowners with the peace of mind that their home is secure from potential intruders.
What does it mean for your home?
The new Part Q certification is a stringent set of standards that all new windows and doors must meet to be installed in a new build. The certification requires that all windows and doors have the highest levels of security, making them virtually impenetrable to anyone attempting to break in. Our Part Q Certified windows and doors feature double glazing, strong multi-point locks, and state-of-the-art security devices for added protection. This provides you with complete peace of mind that your home is safe and secure from unwanted intruders. Additionally, these high security windows are accompanied by a Q Certificate that ensures your home’s security.
