National Security Month 2018

How often do you think about the security of your home? When your home is your castle, you want to be able to feel safe there. However, not everyone gives a lot of thought to how to keep their home as secure as possible.

Many can find that there are vulnerabilities in their home, leaving it at risk of break-ins and vandalism. This is what National Home Security Month hopes to combat. It has been designed to promote the importance of home security so that everyone understands the necessity of staying safe in their own home.

The National Security Month takes place in October 2018 but aims to encourage people to pay attention to their home security all year.

The 4 Week Focus

National Home Security Month is sponsored by Yale and has a different focus each week of October:

Week 1: The first week will be focusing on home alarms and the benefits that they can offer your home.

Week 2: The second week looks at security standards, with particular attention paid to locks and windows.

Week 3: Week three is about getting your home secure for winter and the dark nights and mornings that it brings.

Week 4: The fourth week is focused on smart security, while the last few days of October are dedicated to the buildup to Halloween and Bonfire Night when burglaries are more frequent.

Where To Get More Information

The official National Home Security Month website is a great resource for advice to secure your home. It includes materials such as a leaflet for the 2018 campaign with useful statistics and advice, a home security checklist, an explanation of security standards, and a jargon buster.

There’s also a blog with useful posts from previous years’ National Home Security Months and additional material to help you make your home more secure.

Support From Cosyhomes Windows

At Cosyhomes Windows, we are supporting National Home Security Month in October. Our windows and doors help to secure your home and protect it so that you can feel safe.

All of our windows have multi-point, espagnolette or shoot-bolt locking handles. We reinforce our PVCu windows with steel, and they’re also internally glazed, making them more secure because the glass cannot be removed from outside.

We can also fit fire escape hinges if needed, which helps to ensure that your home is secure but also maintains its safety for those inside.

Our doors also all feature multi-point locking systems to keep your home secure. They’re reinforced with steel and fully welded, as well as internally glazed, just like our windows. As well as internal glazing, we also use toughened glass to lower the risk of break-ins. Our windows and doors are all manufactured to British Standards to ensure security too.

Get on-board with National Home Security Month 2018 and start thinking about how to improve the security of your home. The aim of the month is to help you make your home secure all year. You should benefit from plenty of advice throughout the month to make your home more secure.
