Security is one of the most important factors you consider when choosing replacement windows and doors. So we’ve made it our business to ensure that we only offer products that will provide you with the highest levels of security.

Our doors and windows are rigorously tested to PAS23/24 to provide you with reassurance that you, your family and your home will be protected while you are at home or away.


Window Security

Celestial Windows pride themselves on security and believe that the windows they manufacture are the most secure in the double glazing industry. All windows regardless of size are fitted with the new 3D 8 point SAC Shootbolt Locking System which is only available locally from Celestial Windows.

The SAC Shootbolt system has 400% more contact area with keeps when compared to traditional flat Shootbolts. This greater contact increases security and takes pressure away from the hinges, ensuring a longer life for your windows and the extremely tight seal guarantees super weather production.

Customers can rest assured that all windows manufactured by Celestial Windows are not only energy efficient but offer the best possible protection. Celestial welcome customers to visit their factory or showroom to demonstrate their high quality windows and locking system.

Features and pictures of the SAC Shootbolt Locking System:

  • 8 point locking system with unique corner drive design on all windows regardless of size.
  • Unique full depth eurogroove lock-out design to maximise security performance.
  • 400% more shootbolt contact area with keep when compared to traditional flat shootbolts.
  • Modern contemporary design with options of composite or zinc keeps.
  • Unique anti-slip and lock detail to shootbolt head.
  • Supaglide gear box action, tested to 100,000 cycles (equivalent to 30 years of heavy use).
  • Rigorously tested to BS7950 and beyond to achieve Secure by Design status.


Door Security

Celestial Windows manufacture their doors using the High Security ERA Vectis Plus Door Lock.

Figures from the Government’s British Crime Survey 2008/09 highlight the likelihood that burglars will enter a property via a door.

“Burglars are most likely to target Doors (70%), usually by forcing a lock (28%).”

The easiest way to force a lock is to Bump, Snap or Pick the Eurocylider in the Door. The BBC’s recent Cracking Crime Night highlighted that it can take just a few seconds to force a door lock not equipped with the necessary security with a staged break in on the programme taking just 40 seconds to snap the Euro cylinder.

The Vectis Plus Door Lock has no Euro Cylinder eliminating the Risk from Cylinder Bumping, Snapping and Plug Extraction. The Patented 5 Lever Mortice Lock is operated by a Mortice Key and meets the requirements of PAS 23/24, BS3621 and Secure by Design which most Home Insurance Policies insist on.

ERA and Celestial Windows are that confident of the performance of the High Security Vectis Door Lock that in the unlikely event of a break-in succeeding through the failure of the lock they will pay up to £500 towards any losses incurred.

In the event of Celestial Windows fitting a Door with a Euro Cylinder the Era Vectis 5 Lever lock would still be fitted along with a Kite marked snap, bump, pick and drill resistant Cylinder meeting the same requirement of PAS 23/24, BS3621 and Secure by Design. Celestial Windows currently offer the extremely High Security CISA Astral s Euro Cylinder as an option for their Door Lock.
