A good lock can do more than simply deter the chance thief. They come in all shapes and sizes, from the most basic of padlocks to the cutting edge electronic locks that use the latest technology. Moreover a good lock (such as the standard mortice lock, where a pocket called a mortice is cut into the door, inside which the lock is fitted) is a requirement for home contents insurance. Lock fitting, and lock changing can be for any number of reasons.
Higher security locks or cylinders add extra security to your property. Insurance companies recommend British Standard on all external doors, not just for your front door. These locks are approved by the Police and Insurance companies.
They can also be night latches which are British Standard approved and serve similar to British Standard deadlocks. When it comes to home security, it is better to be safe than sorry. We can also fit additional security such as door chains or bars.
