Home Security

Home security is under threat now more than ever before.

For peace of mind you need to review every aspect of the security of your home. Make sure you have high quality secure locks, door fittings and window fittings. This is your first - and most important - defence against the risk of burglary.

Be aware:

  • Thieves continually find new ways of attacking locks in order to break into homes.
  • Methods of lock attack, previously only known to locksmiths and “professional” burglars, are now laid bare on the internet for the criminal fraternity to see.
  • There are 45 million residential doors in the UK ... it is estimated two thirds of these are vulnerable to attack.
