Best Lock for home security
23rd October 2015 - 1 Comment
It's a fact that most homes spend between £100 and £2000 on an alarm system that will inform everybody that an intruder is in your home.
Yet the lock fitted on the doors to prevent unlawful access probably costs less than a fiver.
Security Doors or 5 Point Locking Mechanisms?
Your new door may look great, it may feel solid and be fitted with an incredible 5 point locking mechanism but given all that - the weak point is the locking cylinder.
In new build properties fitted with these types of locks and deadlock lock cases, typical gain entry times can be between 10 and 40 seconds. The typical standard cylinder including BS kite marked variants can actually aid entry into the premises without the need to pick the locks or drill them.
A high security lock prevents access full stop. Protecting your home or business. An affordable investment in home security.
Protect your home with an anti snap lock.
Locks can be suited so that one key will open all the locks in your home. You tell us how many keys you require and A.L.S. Locksmiths can provide this option. For example 4 locks to 4 doors all operated by the same key that is unique to your home or business.
The truth about Snap Safe Locks
Locks with kite marks or a star have definitely been snap tested
Any lock with a sacrificial section will protect from lock snapping
The snap tested lock is still protecting me even if the key is on the inside of the door.
Locks with 3 stars have been through the most rigorous test.
