Emergency Lock Changes

If criminals have broken into your house, then often one of the first things they steal is the keys. This is so they can come back later and even take you car. We can come and change your locks for new ones so that your old keys no longer work. While we are changing your locks for new ones, we can at the same time upgrade your locks to anti snap types. Anti snap locks are cylinder locks which have a sacrificial snap point which protects against lock snapping. Standard barrel locks in UPVC & composite doors are prone to lock snapping by thieves. Our locks help to protect your home against this type of attack. For those who are extra conscious about security, we can even even install high security locks know as 3* locks such as ULTION.

Door Repair After Burglary

Has your door been broken into by thieves? We can help secure and repair it. Often thieves will kick out the centre panel of your UPVC door by simply kicking it in. We cannot replace this panel immediately, however we can secure it by boarding it up. We can then take measurements while on scene and have your new UPVC centre panel made within days. We will then come and fit the panel securely into your door. You may even wish to consider replacing your UPVC door with a reinforced composite door instead, these are costly but are much more secure than UPVC. Breaking in is most difficult when the door has steel bars inside it like a composite door.

Some of the brands of locks we like to install are ULTION & ABS. Avocet locks have anti pick technology and have hardened pins inside to protect against drill attacks. Many premium locks also have anti bump features too. Perhaps your doors aren’t UPVC but are wood instead. In this case your door will most likely be using what’s called a mortice lock.

We can replace mortice locks with 5 lever mortice locks such as ERA and union. These contain anti pick levers inside and curtain protection to protect against picking. We can also install extra deadlocks & sashlocks on the top and bottom of your door for extra securing. This can often help to protect against your door been kicked in by theives.

We can install Birmingham bars for a wide variety of doors. These doors protect against criminals kicking your door in and breaking your door frame. These fit on the inside of your door in order to reinforce it against forced attacks. Criminals often use force to kick peoples doors in, meaning it doesn’t matter how good of quality your door lock is, the thieves can break in. We also provide door frame repair services as after your door has been kicked in this often rips the door off the hinges and damages the frame.

Shoot Bolt & Rack Bolt Fitting

Your doors may already have good quality locks fitted however perhaps having some extra installed would be a good idea. We can install shoot bolts and rack bolts at the top and bottom of your door. These are locks which are locked internally and have no way to be opened from the outside. Of course this means that they can only be locked when you are actually inside the property. These additional locks just make it that little bit harder for people to kick the door in and protect against forced entry. We can also fit extra deadbolts and British standard mortice locks.

Security Chain Fitting

We can fit security chains to your doors for extra security. Security chains are ideal as these allow people to open the door slightly to see who is at the door. However still protects against forced entry if the person at the door is a criminal. Security chains are not the strongest method of security, and with multiple kicks could be broken. However they just give the occupant those extra few seconds to prepare for the attacker coming in and give your time to try and close the door.

We often install sash jammers on doors in the west yorkshire area. Sash jammers are essentially items which prevent the door from opening. They can only be locked from the inside so can’t be used if you are going out, unless you leave through another door. However they offer good security once you are inside the house. Seen as they cannot be opened from the outside, these are impossible to pick, drill or attack open like a regular lock. The only way for a criminal to break into a door with sash jammers on is to use massive amounts of force to kick the door in. Criminals often do not like to use this method of entry as it is loud as attracts attention from neighbours.

Peep Hole Fitting

One of the best and cheapest ways of protecting your home is by having a very simple product installed called a peep hole. This is a looking glass which we fit into your door and allows the occupant to look to see who is outside the door prior to opening it. One of the very easy ways that criminals break into properties is by simply using peoples trust against them.

The criminal simply knocks on the door, and when the occupant opens the door to see who’s there, they force the door open and break in because the home owner has time to react. Having a spy hole fitted means you don’t have to open the door in order to see who is outside the door. You simply look through the hole and if you don’t trust the person whos outside you do not answer, or you can call the police. Having one of these installed can also act as a visual deterrent as it lets criminals know that you are security conscious.
