What makes a conservatory secure?

I've been looking at a conservatory brochure and it states that one of the models is secure thanks to 11-point locking system and gearbox technology. What's gearbox technology and how does this make a conservatory secure?

"It is mainly standard practice now it’s how the hooks and bolts lock into the frame and keepers . Glass that is toughened and is beaded from inside is the main security it needs ."

"Gearbox technology is saying the locking systems are top of the range with multi point locks
Also all windows and doors are internally glazed and using toughened glass (shatter proof) as standard giving total security all round"

"By 11 point locking system I can imagine they are referring to the locking systems within the doors, and sash opener windows themselves. Conservatory’s are screwed and bolted together to make them secure."

"The system closing of the entrance door in the conservatory is 11 points which denotes a high degree of security. If the windows also have anti-efraction foil, then your conservatory is very safe.
