    "Hi Carol, I hope you are well! Alas there is no definitive answer to this as obviously windows are made up of different materials ie Timber , Aluminium, PVC , U and also have the glass element. Various things you can do all with varying degrees of cost .
    Intruders will get in if they are desperate to get in regardless its about maximising the noise and effort they have to make /go to to enter . The best deterrent is window and door shutters what which obviously cost a fair bit and can be unsightly in some cases. I hope this has helped.
    Best wishes."

    "To be perfectly honest, security comes from multiple aspects of the windows. The frames of course ensuring it has a good locking system e.g (AV2 WINKHAUSE). Next steps in ensuring security would be the glass. For example rather than haven't standard units you would change it to laminated which is much more secure."
