It’s that time of year once again when the dark winter season nights are drawing in around Fleet in Hampshire.

Sadly robbers are out in force again this year and once again Fleet Glaziers have found double glazed systems are being targeted to gain entry to homes.

Among our latest call outs was to a house in Fleet. Our clients remained in bed, when they heard extremely loud banging. At first, they thought it was fireworks outside. Due to the events this time of year with Halloween and Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes Night.

On this occasion the 6.4 laminated safety glass (just like a car windshield) was proving really difficult and impossible for the robbers to break. If laminated safety glass was NOT installed within the existing window frames. The property owners would have come face to face with 2 burglars within their home. An extremely frightening experience for anybody to have to handle, specifically a couple with a young kid or senior surviving on their own.

Fleet Glaziers advise that all ground floor windows and doors are updated from strengthened safety glass to laminated safety glass.

The glass specifications have 2 pieces of 3mm glass, bonded together with a 0.4 mm interlayer. Making the glass significantly more difficult to break through, as when broken, the glass remains bonded together by the centre interlayer.


Upgrade your ground floor doors and windows today with our cost effective glass replacement services. The glass can make all the difference.

Remember, Fleet Glaziers only change the panes, never ever the frames, no requirement for pricey frame replacements. Your house might already have security laminated glass inside the existing frames.
