Beat The Burglar at The Lincolnshire Show

10th August 2010 Comments

The Lincoln based manufacturer and installer of windows doors and conservatories brought its popular Beat the Burglar feature to the Lincolnshire Show to demonstrate how tough the firm makes life for would be burglars.

For the fourth year running visitors to the Starglaze stand at the Lincolnshire Show found it impossible to break into the window and win the £50 prize on offer, despite being given a helping hand by the Starglaze staff!

“We gave visitors a crowbar, a screwdriver and a hammer and invite them to break in through our window and win the £50”, said Gillian Parkinson, Branch Sales Manager at Starglaze on Tritton Road.

Gillian continues, “No-one was successful- even our own staff were foiled by it.!”

The Beat the Burglar window is manufactured to specifications recommended by Secured by Design, which is the flagship UK police initiative promoting effective crime prevention and security standards.

Starglaze achieve the Secured by Design license by manufacturing their windows with steel reinforcing and fitting them with robust ‘claw locks.’

The Starglaze Secured by Design window has never been defeated by a ‘burglar’ at the Lincolnshire Show and Starglaze do not show any sign of letting the burglar win yet!
