With the holidays fast approaching and homes are filling up with presents IronmongeryDirect urges homeowners to ensure that window and door locks are in good working order and secure.
Home Office statistics show that 71% of burglars target the doors of a property, usually by forcing a lock. Ensuring that door and window locks are in good working order is essential for maximum home security.
The risk of forced entry is significantly reduced by upgrading lock cylinders to the newly-available ‘high security’ ranges from major lock manufacturers. Look for a five-lever mortice lock that is kite marked to at least BS3621. Another benefit to tighter security is reduction in insurance costs. Installing the right lock may reduce your insurance premiums; consult your policyholder for more details.
