As the first port of entry into our homes, doors must be hard-wearing and secure. But what can we do to ensure this? How do you know when you need to change your locks, and which type of locking mechanism should you choose? Here, we'll break down everything you need to know about door security.
There are a number of reasons why you might need to change your locks:
That said, having your locks totally changed isn’t your only option. Rekeying – where the lock pins within the lock’s cylinder are replaced – can be a cheaper alternative, particularly if you haven’t lost your keys or been broken into.
We've made it as hard as possible for Anglian doors to be broken into by constantly reviewing our locking systems. Every Anglian external door and fire door is fitted as standard with a state-of-the-art Yale kitemarked 3-star cylinder lock, which is the highest specification available.
Features of the Yale cylinder lock include:
The cylinder on the system is built with unparalleled inner strength to protect you from burglars’ different forms of attack, leaving your door safely locked. This includes features such as:
The cylinders are supplied with three dual-branded Yale and Anglian dimple-cut keys as well as a key identification card should you ever wish to purchase more. You can also choose from a number of lock variants in either a brass or chrome finish.
In short, our cylinder locks take care of all your biggest security concerns so you can relax and enjoy your new door. If you’d like more information on choosing a door, click here to view our helpful guide, or browse the different styles we carry here.
