    I paid 11k for 2 doors and about 5 windows.

    Stupid ex-bint left one of the door unlocked and we got burgled anyway.

    I don't know how your house layout is, if you have upstairs aso. but most people forget in the haste to secure their property, that it is quite nice to be able to get out to in case of fire ect. you could be so unlucky that your way of escape is blocked by fire or bad guys, and that you cant reach your children (if any) in another bedroom.
    So get bars that can be opened from the inside/outside on your bedrooms.
    They can be secured by very hefty padlocks where you keep a key in each bedroom.
    Hope you get it all sorted

    Sounds like you're being robbed from the inside.

    Another option's security mesh. It's more expensive than the steel bars but looks about 50,000x better - they bascially look like fly-screens or, from a distance, smoked glass. They also have a quick release mechanism for fire escapes.

    Another option would be to move into the nearest jail. They fit the bars for free and there are not many reports of criminals breaking in.

    Given the definition from 'World Wide Words' I'm not sure this is the nicest way to refer to another TD member Marmers...
    bint is British slang for a woman or girl, but it is always disparaging and offensive and signals the user as lower class and unrefined.

    In Khon Kaen we paid 28,500 for three security doors (one for double doors), and nine windows. One thing to consider. Make sure they are of a design which can be opened from the inside, and not permanently riveted to the house. First you can't get out in a timely manner in an emergency and secondly it's near impossible to clean the glass on the outside. Birds also love to roost on them at night so lots of shi* to be cleaned.

    bint is British slang for a woman or girl, but it is always disparaging and offensive and signals the user as lower class and unrefined. It’s also now rather dated.

    The word is Arabic for a daughter, specifically one who has yet to bear a child. It was in common use as a slang term during the first and second World Wars among British and Allied servicemen stationed in Egypt and neighbouring countries.

    Sir Richard Burton was the first person to use the word in English, in his Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to El-Medinah and Meccah in 1855: “ ‘Allah! upon Allah! O daughter!’ cry the by-standers, when the obstinate bint of sixty years seizes their hands”.
    Was Sir Richard Burton low class and unrefined?

    Funnily enough there has been rumours of 'old lags' breaking back into UK gaols because they miss all the cosy benefits availaable there.
