Insurance approved locks.

There are so many requirements for insurance companies that compiling a list of offers would take forever and be very confusing, not only to me but to you too. A few standard requirements you can check on, firstly, do you have :

Timber doors and windows.

  • Your Front/Back/Patio doors should have at least a BS3261 lock fitted (have a look at the lock, does it have a kitemark)
  • Windows should have separate locks from the normal stays
  • French patio doors, one leaf should lock with at least a mortice dead bolt (Surface bolts aren't acceptable)
  • Sliding patio doors should have anti-lift devices fitted
  • Its not required, but I ALWAYS say have a home safe, for less than 50 you can feel assured that your valuables are safe!

UPVC doors and windows.

  • Your Front/Back/Patio door should have a multi-point locking system which incorporates a lever or cylinder deadlock (when you lift the handle on the door, do bolts shoot out)
  • Windows should have a key operated lock
  • Sliding patio doors should have anti-lift devices fitted
  • Tilt and slide doors should have anti-lift devices fitted
  • Its not required, but I ALWAYS say have a home safe, for less than 50 you can feel assured that your valuables are safe!
If you don't have the minimum requirements as above, you can always Contact me to discuss
