Security Features

Everyone needs to feel safe in their own home. As windows and doors are the weak points in your home they should not be an open invitation to burglars. We at EuroStar Windows make it our priority to make your home safe and secure.

We at EuroStar Windows offer a high level security on our tilt and turn windows and doors:

Resistance Class 2

Resistance class 2 is necessary for private and commercial sectors as this prevents burglars from gaining entry into a building or residential home using only screwdrivers, wedges or brute force. The tilt and turn windows and doors produced by EuroStar Windows are designed to withstand bodily force for a defined testing time of 15 minutes.
This inhibits a potential intruder from gaining a permanent opening as this corresponds to the criteria of resistance class 2.
EuroStar tilt and turn windows feature hardware that prevents levering of the locking mechanism (camlock).

The camlock in the frame is in the shape of a mushroom and is therefore impervious to a burglar’s lever.

Resistance class 2 category is adequate since frequent offenders quickly give up before they can attract attention. The PVC-u profiles by Trocal also retain their form due to its elasticity, it can return to its original shape once a burglar removes his tools from the window or door. This is the advantage of the PVC-U profile in comparison to other materials such as: wood that splinters or aluminum that deforms. Burglar resistant windows prove their effectiveness only when they have been installed properly.

EuroStar tilt and turn windows and doors are suitable for residential or commercial buildings. Laminated security glass exhibits a resistance class many times higher than normal glazing. All our tilt and turn doors come standard with both interior and exterior laminated glass. The entire structure (frame, hardware and glazing) of our tilt and turn doors does not offer any weak points. For more information and advise on our tilt and turn products please refer to a EuroStar trained specialist.

  • I am proud to recommend EuroStar Windows. I am a research Engineer for a majour Canadian company. I researched energy efficient windows for the better part of 10 months before selecting EuroStar as ‘by far’ the most energy efficient windows available. I selected triple pane windows with solar glass which would give me both cold & heat protection. My home was uncomfortable with it’s temperature differences from room to room and it was expensive to heat due to the hill top location of the home. EuroStar triple pane windows gave me exactly what I expected from a quality product, comfort!

  • It is not easy for me to write these comments about my window purchases. I had a quote from EuroStar Windows in 2008. While the quote process was very informative and educational, I selected another company because the price was about 10% less than EuroStar. I have to admit that I did not heed the advice of the EuroStar consultant and check out the quality of all quotes on the government web site, I shopped solely on price. Now here it is two years later and I have called EuroStar to come out and to take out my two year old windows. I had made a very expensive mistake, my cheaper replacement windows were colder and far noisier than my 30 year old windows. I purchased new windows from EuroStar, this time I followed the consultants advise and upgraded to triple pane windows. They are exactly what I thought I would have had from the cheaper company; much warmer in the winter, cooler in the direct sun of the summer and FAR quieter due to triple pane technology. Yes, I bought windows twice in a two year period, but I am far happier having spent that little extra to get a great deal more.

  • I am a full-time LEED engineer, I recommend the best ways to save energy to building designers & engineers. I searched the internet for the most energy efficient windows available anywhere when I was planning to change my second home into an energy efficient showplace. After comparing all the available energy efficient windows I selected EuroStar windows as having all the features I sought. The consultant was knowledgeable and helped in selecting options that were best for my location. I will be recommending EuroStar Windows to professionals & homeowners alike as outstanding value for the cost.

  • I recently had my windows replaced by EuroStar windows. Your window consultant was extremely helpful and taught me what to look for when purchasing windows. I had other companies give me quotes and I checked the quality they offered. The comparison was definitely in EuroStar’s favour. I am retired and consider myself very frugal. Having to pay a bit more for top quality windows was by far the right decision as I did not want to have to replace lower quality windows again in 5 to 8 years. The high efficiency EuroStar windows will give me the comfort level I want. I was impressed by the energy savings, explained to me by your sales representative. The installers were very professional and did a fast and efficient job. When they were finished, my home was left in pristine condition, cleaned up with no mess left, just as it was when they started. I thank you EuroStar for the high quality windows and the fast and professional installation you did for me. I had EuroStar back a few months later to install more windows.
