Mortice sashlocks and deadbolts are one of the most common type of locks. A mortice lock requires a key to both lock and open it. Your home insurer may ask that it complies with British Standard BS3621.
Cylinder locks are most commonly found on uPVC doors. These lock types can be very vulnerable to lock snapping (a common technique used by burglars). Contact us today to evaluate your cylinder and advise if it's up to current standards.
In general, they come in two forms: standard nightlatches and deadlocking nightlatches. Most commonly found on wooden doors where a mortice lock is fitted as additional security.
Multi Point Locks are now commonly used and are found mainly on uPVC and composite doors. A multi point lock has a minimum of three locking points that all lock simultaneously after usually lifting the handle and then turning the key to lock.
