If you live in the United Kingdom, it is important that you upgrade your locks to British Standard locks.
We can help you change your locks and upgrade them to the British Standard. Here are some reasons why it is important to do so:
1. Britain has one of the highest burglary rates in Europe. In 2015, there were an estimated 430,000 burglaries in England and Wales alone. This means that a burglary takes place every 2 minutes. So, if your home or office is not properly secured, you could be at risk of becoming a victim of burglary.
2. British Standard locks have been tested to withstand more than 5 minutes of forced entry attempts. This means that they are much more secure than regular locks, and will deter most burglars from trying to break into your property.
3. If you have insurance, your insurer may require you to have British Standard locks in order to be fully covered in the event of a break-in.
4. Finally, upgrading to British Standard locks shows that you are committed to protecting your property and keeping your family or employees safe. This can give you peace of mind knowing that you have done everything possible to secure your home or office.

What types of British standard locks? and how much does it cost?
There are a few different types of British Standard locks, and the cost will vary depending on the type of lock you choose. Some of the most common types of British Standard locks include deadlocks, sash locks, and rim locks. Deadlocks are the most secure type of lock, as they require a key to be used in order to open them from both the inside and outside. Sash locks are also very secure, and are often used in conjunction with deadlocks. Rim locks are less secure than deadlocks or sash locks, but are still a good option if you are looking for a British Standard lock. The cost of these locks will vary depending on the brand, but you can expect to pay around £50-£100 for a good quality lock.
