UPVC / Composite Door Security

Sadly the number of Break Ins around Oxfordshire has increased, and will probably increase further leading up to Christmas. Do you have a UPVC or Composite Door? Do you know if your door is secure? Do you know what to look for?

Does your Door lock have a Deadbolt and additional Hooks/Deadbolts? Such as the lock in the picture?

Next we need to look at the Lock Cylinder fitted, Is it snap secure? Is it British Standard? We are looking for a British Standard Kite mark on the face of the Cylinder.

The Cylinder in the picture carries the Kitemark with 3* and is Sold Secure Diamond Grade, Which is the highest level of Security for a Cylinder available today.

The handles should not have visible fixings from the outside.

The handle in the picture has concealed fixings on the outside, the fixings are bolted through the door.

If you are not sure what you have fitted or would like some help identifying your locks or free advice, Please get in touch.
