Choosing a lock for your house is not always as picking one off the rack at your local hardware store.
You would need to consider the conditions of your home and what area you are trying to secure. These factors include the type of door or window that
You have, the level of security that you want to have, the quality of the door frame which you are installing the lock, the requirements of your insurance company and how secure you want your home to be. This way, you will be sure that you are picking the right lock that will fulfill all your requirements.
For instance, a standard Mortice lock may not be appropriate for a multiple point locking system on a UPVC door. Door that have a weakened frame or weak glass panels will be less secure regardless of the type of lock you install. Therefore you need to contact a qualified and approved locksmith to help you make the best choice.
When we inspect your property, we can recommend the installation of a patented or restricted lock to increase your security level. Patented keys have legal protection that stops duplicates from being made without verifiable proof of ownership. Restricted keys on the other hand are not easily copied because they always have unusual designs and special mechanical features. Sometimes if patented keys are missing or are stolen, the present key can be removed from a locksmith’s key cade database. The lock can then be re-configured and new keys provided.
You can decide to install latch bolts or deadbolts. The latch bolts are for a reduced level of security. They are most commonly purchased because they are cheap and very easy to install. They can also be easily broken by a hammer or wrench. You can also choose to install a metal plate around the doorknob to avoid it from being smashed.
Deadbolts are the best door locks available if you want a high level of security. They are very effective in keeping your door in the frame. You can decide to use both a latch bolt and deadbolts if you live in an area where there is a lot of crime. You can also use patented keys along with these lock types. These make it very hard to duplicate without your consent.
Disc locks are a good investment to make if you have a high budget. These keep your valuables safer. They are almost impossible to pick and very difficult to cut. Keyed entry knobs and levers also work well for exterior side and back doors. They are available in a whole range of styles, finishes and trims that will go well with deadbolts to create a more secure and aesthetically pleasing look.
