As security specialists and one of the UK’s most accredited security companies, we understand that broken, damaged, or faulty windows are an invitation to thieves, squatters, vandals, and more.
As well as deterring intrusion attempts, security window screens also:
- Protect the window from further damage.
- Protect against weather ingress.
- Prevent unauthorised access.
Wooden Security Screens
Boarding up windows is the practice of erecting wooden boards over a problem window. We use 10mm and 12mm Oriented Strand Board (OSB), also known as sterling board, or flakeboard. OSB is a type of timber engineered explicitly for use in walls, decking, and flooring.
OSB is ideal for load-bearing and is now more widely used than plywood in the construction industry, accounting for around 60% of all structural panels, thanks to its robust performance.
Sitex Security Screens
Sitex security screens are the best in the business, making it almost impossible for doors or windows to be accessed without using specialist tools. Sitex security screens are more resilient to attack, be it fire or brute force, than wooden boards.
Sitex security screens are composed of galvanised (zinc-coated) steel and feature machine-drilled holes that allow light to permeate the property and provide ventilation where applicable.
- The galvanised steel construction features:
- Obvious deterrent to intruders.
- Robust and reliable steel construction.
- Drill hole to allow in light and air.
- Crowbar and hacksaw resistant.
- Suitable for windows, doors, and other points of entry.
- Fully recyclable.
With windows featuring just a tiny crack, it can seem excessive to board them up ahead of a total replacement. Also, some people hate the look of wooden window boards.

There are many reasons why a property owner or manager may seek to board up windows.
Emergency Boarding: The most common use for window boarding up is to secure a damaged or faulty window while a replacement or repair can be organised. This is usually reactive to damage being discovered.
Void Property: Many properties are left temporarily empty while they are between tenants. Properties visibly not in use are a target for thieves, squatters, and more. When you consider that void properties usually have the utilities turned off, there is no way to run a security or alarm system. For these reasons, window boarding up is a popular service for owner or managers of void properties.
Event Protection: Windows are often boarded up in advance of planned public events like demonstrations, street parties, carnivals, fayres and more. This service is also used in reaction to extended spells of civil unrest.
