Hardware Screwed into Metal Reinforcement

Anlin Window & Door Features

Engineered for security and safety, all window locks and keepers are fastened into reinforcement

Anlin Window Systems products have ALL been tested and passed the most rigorous resistance test: “California Forced Entry” (CFE)

Interior Glass-to-Frame Main Seal

Anlin Window & Door Features

All Anlin products are engineered to have the main glass-to-frame seal on the interior of the home

Even when glaze bead is removed from exterior, it’s impossible for an intruder to remove the glass unit without breaking the glass causing a “loud” break-in noise

Other Window Manufacturers Features

The main glass-to-frame seal is on the exterior side of the home

A simple putty knife can easily remove the glass unit without breaking the glass (a “quiet” break-in)


Right and Left Handed Locks

Anlin Window & Door Features

Engineered to always have the lock lever point downward when in the locked position regardless of operation

Allows homeowner to know if window is locked at a quick glance for peace of mind

Other Window Manufacturers Features

Use right handed locks on all window operations resulting in some windows locked with the lever pointing down and some windows locked with the lever pointing up

Creates an unsafe feeling for the homeowner in knowing which windows are actually locked

Anti-Lift Block Vent Stop

Anlin Window & Door Features

The anti-lift block is mounted in the top of every sliding window and restricts the ability to lift the sash up and out when the vent stop is engaged

Vent stop–standard in all sliding and hung products with equal sight lines allows window to be opened slightly for fresh air and still provide some security

Tamper-Proof Exterior Handle

Anlin Window & Door Features

Malibu exterior door handles are engineered as two separate parts–one solid part for “no-key” option and another separate part for “with key” option

This stops an intruder from gaining access to the lock and requires the glass to be broken to enter the home
