At BC Profiles, we make sure that we only use locks that are made to the highest standards and from the strongest materials, so that you can count on our security.
Why is it important to have a secure door lock?
This may seem like a fairly obvious question however you would be surprised by how many flats and houses have suffered break-ins due to the weak nature of the door locks. Alarms and CCTV provide great protection however a sturdy door lock is the most effective way to deter any intruders.
Additionally, if you have toddlers or young children a moresecureand robust lock will ensure that they can not open the door at their leisure if they are not responsible enough to be outside alone.
What should I look for in a door lock?
There are a few factors you need to consider when choosing a door lock. Firstly, you need to think about what your door is made from. The material of the door will dictate what type of lock you can get. For example, there are some types of locks that aren’t suitable for Upvc. The lock needs to be compatible with the material of the door.
Secondly, consider your environment. Where do you live? If you live in a gated community then you may be more protected but your home may be a bigger target. However, if you live in an area of high crime you might want to invest in a door lock to protect your family and belongings.
Finally, when you move into a home you should speak to the landlord or bank about the home insurance requirements. You may be required to purchase a certain lock. If so, make this a priority as if you are burgled and have an incorrect lock you may not be covered by the insurance policy.
