How secure are Anglian’s doors?

In short, very secure! All of our doors have Yale 3 Star cylinder locks - one of the world’s top names in security systems. These locks are anti-bump, anti-pick, anti-drill, anti-snap and anti-plug extraction,TS007:2014 3 Star accredited and BSI KM559658 accredited and tested to BSEN1303:2005.

Each of our doors is also fitted with robust hinges and locking mechanisms, which, with the overall strength and rigidity of the leaf and frame, makes for a door that is extremely secure. The excellent multi-point locking system, which varies slightly between the different door materials, locks the door firmly into the frame in at least three positions.

On our uPVC doors, the multi-point locking system incorporates three steel hook bolts, which are activated by a highly advanced security feature – a handle that resists levering or tampering and a Yale 3 Star Cylinder lock.
