What are Digital Door Locks?
Digital door locks are easy to install and a low-cost way of securing homes and businesses across the country. These locks are unique as they allow for keyless entry and are programmable, allowing you to secure different sections of your garage, business, or home. Mechanical digital door locks can be sourced, supplied, and installed by myself.
Dependent on your budget and security requirements, I am able to advise which digital door lock is right for you. It is always important to do your research and having an idea of the benefits can help. There are several advantages to these types of lock, including:
Of course, if you have a mechanical digital lock, it is important that you remember the main PIN code as this is what gets you into or out of a building. As electronic versions require by legislation an approved and accredited electrician to fit them, I only fit digital door locks. However, if you do decide you would like an electronic digital lock them I am able to refer you to an electrician to fit this.
The Importance of British Standard Locks
Whilst there are a number of styles and brands of locks, British Standard (BS) locking devices are the best. I only use these locks within my client’s properties or businesses to ensure their security. These locks also help you to be compliant with your insurance policies, allowing you to be covered in case of any unwanted break ins. These locks set a high benchmark for quality of standard and services and are produced by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
Any products that have met the BS benchmark will be marked with a kitemark on the packaging and product. There are different numbers that you may see on items that have been passed by British Standard testing. These are commonly BS3621, BS8621, and BS10621. Knowing what each of these refer to can be helpful to understand the benefits. The BS3621 standard apply to mortice and cylinder rim locks where a key is used on both lock sides. If a key is removed from this lock, then it remains secure. BS8621 standard refers to locks that require a key only for entry and are most commonly found in blocks of apartments or flats. Finally, BS10621 is useful for locks that can only be securely locked from the outside. These are best for use on properties with an alternative route of escape.
Although these locks are not required, they come highly recommended. If your insurance company require proof that your locks are British Standard then I am able to help you provide that.
uPVC Door Locks
Otherwise known as unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, uPVC is a chemically resistant material which is often used in doors and windows. The material is typically rigid and does not erode over time. Secure and reliable, these door locks are weather corrosion resistant, oxidation resistant, and are not damaged by sunlight. I ensure that all my locks are sourced from reputable brands, giving you the reassurance you need. My UPVC lock installation service is available for both domestic and commercial properties and can be placed on patio doors and front doors. The uPVC locks that I have include multipoint locks, hookbolt systems, and mechanical digital locks.
