Why Install New Locks?
There are many situations which may require you to change your locks, to keep the security of your property as high as possible. One of the main reasons to upgrade your security systems is if you have recently experienced a break-in, and your property has been burgled or vandalised. I can install upgrades for your locking systems that contain multi-pint locks that are secure, hard to pick and highly versatile. Moreover, I can install new locks for windows, doors, garages, safes, cabinets and shutters, and can cut as many keys as you require.
If you have lost your keys, moved to a new house or have gone through a separation, you should always have your locks changed to avoid anyone gaining unwanted access to your property. If there have been recent reports of burglary in your area, then you should consider having your current locking systems upgraded to a more secure, reliable lock. This is especially important if your current one has undergone wear and tear. There are other ways to improve the security of your home or commercial property, which you can read about here.
Which Lock Should I Have Installed?
The five-lever mortice deadlock consists of a nightlatch, hardened steel plates and anti-pick features for maximum security. It is also resistant to break-ins. It is suitable for all front doors unless they are made of aluminium, composite materials or UPVC. A rim automatic deadlatch lock consists of key locking handles and it can be unlocked and locked from both sides using a key. It is mostly useful as an additional lock as it is not as secure as other locking systems and is best used in addition to a main lock.
A multi-point locking system consists of at least 3 locking points that all turn at the same time using a key. They are a popular choice for French doors, patio doors and UPVC doors. Nightlatches are a useful as an additional safety feature. This is because they can reduce the cost of your home insurance. I can install all types of locks for your doors and provide you with expert advice on which one will be the most suitable for your home or commercial property.
Window Lock Installations
I can install window locks for your home to reduce the risk of burglars gaining access to your home via this route. Windows are a feature of almost all houses. Whether your window is a sash window, a tilt and turn window or a casement window, you should have a high-quality lock installed to decrease the risk. Window locks are important as windows are a more discrete point of entry compared to a front door. As a result, burglars are more likely to try to gain access this way. Window locks are not always essential for upper storey rooms that are hard to reach, it is more important to have locks on windows on the first floor and basement. The different types of window lock are:
- Window Latches
- Keyed Locks
- Child Safety Latches
- Swivel Action Locks
- Lag Screws
- Sliding Window Locks
- Hinged Wedge Locks
- Window Pin Locks
- Folding Latches
- Handle Lock
The most common type of window lock is the window latch, which is usually found on single and double hung windows. They are located at the top of the window sash, and work by securing the sashes together when closed. They are useful with keyed locks, as by having a key operated lock to secure your window, it is more difficult to gain entry.
