NCPC and Gorell Windows & Doors Team Up to Spread the Word About Home Security
The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) announced that Gorell Windows & Doors is partnering with the organization to help raise awareness about home crime prevention strategies, particularly around window and door security. NCPC and Gorell have created this new alliance to serve as a catalyst for educating citizens on how they can take additional steps to protect themselves from burglaries.

For over twenty years, NCPC has addressed issues of crime and disorder through educational materials, public service announcements, training, and informational kits. A key component of NCPC's mission is to support crime prevention efforts that enable people to create safer communities by reducing the opportunities for crime to occur. And a more secure home is at the heart of crime prevention.

"This partnership is a win for everyone," commented Jack Calhoun, president and CEO of the National Crime Prevention Council. "A primary part of NCPC's mission has always been to reduce opportunities for crime to occur. Secure doors and windows can help stop an intrusion before the trespasser can enter a home, thus reducing the potential for crime and violence."

Gorell manufactures several lines of security windows and doors, all of which can incorporate Gorell's Armor Glass? option to provide homeowners with an effective means of deterring break-ins. Armor Glass features three glass panes - two of which sandwich a polyvinyl butyral interlayer - to keep out intruders. In tests, these windows and doors have withstood more than 30 blows from a baseball bat before a hole the size of a quarter appears. Other benefits of Armor Glass products include improved sound control, safety, energy savings, and solar protection.

Gorell Windows & Doors is known for placing a strong emphasis on designing and manufacturing strong, durable high-quality products. The company voluntarily submits its products to independent, certified laboratories that test them according to industry-recognized standards. Gorell's products consistently meet the highest levels for structural forced-entry testing to ensure maximum impact resistance.

Wayne C. Gorell, president and CEO of Gorell Enterprises, Inc., said, "We are extremely pleased to partner with the National Crime Prevention Council to help promote the importance of window and door security in preventing crime. We continue to be concerned about the FBI's statistics that over 93 percent of burglaries occur through windows and doors, and we feel that it's a duty to build products that help protect and safeguard people."
