Front Door Security

We fit nothing but the best locks on your front door

As standard, we fit Yale Traditional night latches and a five-lever dead lock to our front doors but we also often fit Banham locks. We’ve even fitted finger print locks but they don’t look very Victorian! Whatever we fit to your front door, you can be sure they will perform.

Locks you can trust

This is an important subject which we take very seriously. So, we only fit the best and most reliable of what’s available.

Yale night latch

We fit a Yale 77 Traditional night latch as standard because it’s been a trusted brand for so many years and it is actually a great product. They’re not Kitemarked of course so you rely on the dead lock comply with your home insurance conditions.

They look fantastic on a 1930’s, Victorian or Georgian front door.

Dead lock

The Union 5-lever kitemarked dead lock is British Standard BS3621 stamped, you’re insurance will require this and you won’t be covered without one if someone breaks in by picking or drilling the lock.

5 levers means that it’s harder to pick and the British Standard 3621 stamp means that the armour plating covering the body of the lock is such that it will be difficult to drill through.

About 10 years ago I had a few Yale dead locks have problems with keys not fitting so I switched to Union and have had no problems since.

Hinges

Also as standard hardware, we fit grade 11 fire door hinges! These hinges will carry much much more weight than your front door.

What we do is far from standard.

Maximum security

There are a number of options to discuss if necessary, such as our Maximum Security Package.

How about a set of Banham locks so you only need one key for both locks and nobody but you can get it cut.
