Secondary security

Installing secondary security measures will considerably improve the security of your property. The majority of burglaries are opportune with intruders entering through open windows, patio doors or with duplicate keys. Inexpensive solutions like fitting window locks or door viewers could make the difference in whether or not you are burgled.

External Doors

All external doors should be fitted with high quality locks. Mortise and sashlocks provide the best protection against forced entry including picking, drilling and hacksaw.

Sliding Patio Doors

Patio Doors are a favourite point of entry for burglars and provide an ideal escape route for the removal of possessions, particularly bulkier items which cannot easily be handed out through a window. To prevent this happening, the opening section of sliding patio doors can be secured with patio door bolts at the top and/or bottom.

Back/Side Doors

Having good quality locks and bolts installed in a weak door may not be advisable. Safe & Secure Locksmiths can advise whether your doors and frames will carry them. For example, some mortise security bolts can be fitted at the top and bottom of the door and can only be operated from the inside.

Door Viewers/Security Chains

You can also improve the security of your external doors at little extra cost by having security chains or similar types of door restrainers fitted - this stops the "foot-in-the-door" attack.
You can identify your visitor before opening the door by having a door viewer installed.

Window locks

A high percentage of all break-ins are through windows at ground floor level. Burglars often find them an easy way to get in, e.g. by tripping the catch from the outside with a knife blade, or by removing enough glass to reach and release the window catch. Windows left open provide the easiest entry of all for the burglar.

All accessible windows should be fitted with key-operated window locks. Whilst ground floor windows are the most commonly used points of entry, windows on upper floors accessible from flat roofs or drain pipes should also be fitted with locks.

Having window locks fitted is not that expensive and there is a range for every type of window to choose from including wood, and those with metal, aluminium or UPVC frames. Safe & Secure Locksmiths can advise on the most suitable locks to suit your needs.

What our clients say

"I took the wrong keys when I went out so didn't have a door key when I got home. I called Safe & Secure Locksmiths who arrived in less than 20 minutes and had the door open in no time. No damage was done to the lock or the door even though there was a key on the inside."Susanne Clarke, Almancil

"You've heard of a lock in? Well, I was locked out of my bar when the door closed in the wind. Chris got me back inside before I lost any business."Baz, Baz & Minnies Irish Bar, Quarteira
