Sliding Window / July 26, 2018 / Olympia Doucet
Many new sliding windows have key locking latches already installed. Some allow the window to be locked slightly open for ventilation. If your home has these window locks they are usually secure enough to keep your insurance company happy. If your home has only a simple nonlocking latch you should secure them with a keylocking sliding window lock or a window grill. Installing window locks yourself will cost AUD$15$20 per window. Having these locks supplied and installed by a locksmith will cost $40$50 per window.
Window grills vary greatly in price depending on the size of the window and the style of the grill but probably the average is $150$200 per window. Most insurance policies require either a keylocking window lock or security grill. This is sometimes in the fine print. If you dont have one of these forms of security you may be giving your insurance company an easy way to deny your claim and you will be wasting the money you pay on your insurance premium.
