Door & Window Security

Many uPVC doors are fitted with a cylinder lock, commonly known as a Europrofile or euro cylinder. Each cylinder has a section cut out to provide space for a revolving cam.

Unfortunately this creates a weak point, making it vulnerable to Lock-Snapping (see video below). Once a standard cylinder has been snapped, a thief can quickly and easily manipulate the mechanism and unlock the door.

Upgrade Your Door & Window Locks The benefits of upgrading to a high security lock

  • Visual Deterrent – Visible BS kitemark discourages burglars
  • Anti-Snap – deliberate weak point resists lock snapping
  • Anti-Bump – low and high driver pins resist lock bumping
  • Anti-Drill – Lock drilling resisted with anti-drill pins and plug cuts
  • Anti-Pick – spool pins make lock picking fruitless
  • Anti-Plug Pull – resists plug and cylinder pull
    Insurance company compliance

We recommend that you check the level of protection offered by your current locks and ensure that they meet the requirement of your insurance policy. Failure to do this could mean that the policy is invalid and may result in any claims being rejected. There could be a financial benefit too, as some insurers offer a discount if high security locks are fitted.

As a general rule you should fit a cylinder lock that has attained a BS Kitemark and is regarded as Insurance Approved and Secured by Design. The locks we fit meet these standards and are BS kitemark approved.

New standards may be introduced in the future of course, so we recommend that you clarify the requirement of your insurance policy.

Peace of Mind

There has been a great deal of media coverage lately about the rise in burglaries and the vulnerability of standard euro cylinder locks. This may raise concerns about the security of our doors and cause us to worry each night when we go to bed, or each morning when we leave for work.

When we have upgraded your locks you can rest in the knowledge that your property is safer and that they meet the demanding British Standard.
