                                   Improve Your Home Security!

                         Pull up the Drawbridge on your UPVC door!!

  Have you heard about 'lock snapping'?

Among the undesirables, the new current trend as a way of getting into your property is a method of forced entry that burglars are using to gain access through your UPVC front or back door within 60 seconds! Scary, but sadly very true. The simple technique being used by intruders is to smash the door handle and then snap the internal cylinder in two.

'Secured by Design',the official police-approved scheme addressing security devices, has for some time been working with the British Standards Institute to improve UPVC door security, with specific attention paid to lock snapping. New standards have recently been introduced to over come this problem by using anti-snap cylinders. the quickest and most cost-effective solution is to upgrade basic Euro cylinders to security-enhanced anti-snap cylinder locks.

The new versions have anti-snap cut-outs on both sides of the cylinder so that if undue force is applied to one end of the cylinder, it breaks away leaving the locking mechanism inside the door and still doing its job. Burglars have become familiar with these new locks and they are proving to be a big deterrent.

 

 

       Sash Jammers

    There are lots of cost- effective measures that can be taken to protect your home and this additional, simple security can save you the trauma and heartache of having your home broken into.Sash Jammers can be added to windows (and doors) to prevent them being forced open.If you have youngsters in the house, they also act as a child safety measure, particularly important for families living close to busy roads.

             And always Remember.................     

  • Light up the entrance to your home-No burglar wants to be in easy view while commiting a crime                     
  • Whether your are at home or away-keep your front and back doors locked
  • Always property mark your gardening equipment and tools with surname and postcode, it's hard to sell something on if it can be identified!!
  • Secure garden sheds and garages they are a prime target for the opportunist burglar
  • Keep all keys and mobile phones in a safe place, not near doors or in locks
  • Keep front gardens neat and tidy so that intruders cannot hide
  • Check for weak spots around your property, broken fencing or a back gate with no lock
  • Leave a radio running when you are out-Noises prevent burglaries-and if you have a dog or cat they will enjoy the company!!
