Spire Glass Limited are a leading home improvements company, based near the famous cathedral city of Salisbury, Wiltshire. Our bespoke double glazing solutions are designed to help reduce your carbon footprint alongside maximising the security of your home. And as one of our customers discovered, our windows offer superb levels of security.
In late March, we received an email from one of our customers to say there had been an attempted burglary at their home. The bizarre thing is, the customer didn’t even notice there had been an attempted burglary until carrying out routine cleaning work.
It turns out that the burglar had attempted to prise open the sash using a crowbar, or another small hand tool. Although they must have given it their best efforts, the robust locking systems and security focused designs prevented any loss of personal items, and minimal property damage. Leaving the homeowner safe, and the thief empty handed.
Why are we reporting on this now? It just goes to show that the unpredictable can happen and that security is just as important today as it was one hundred years ago. Investing in security focused windows and doors from a reliable and trusted company like Spire Glass is vitally important.
The combination of our knowledge, building skills and products we use amplify your home’s security, giving you maximum protection from both opportunistic and planned burglary.

Sam Locke, operations manager of Spire Glass said. ‘What could have been a potentially disastrous ending to the story, has been thwarted thanks to the quality of the TruFrame window frame and the Yale hardware. The homeowner needs a new window but doesn’t have to consider the cost of any losses, nor the emotional distress. This is a clear message that product quality and specification has never been so important within the industry.’
