We only supply the best locks! Did you know that not all locks are created equal?
The quality of your locks can mean the difference between being safe and secure in your home and leaving yourself open to being burgled.
The Brisant range of locks are a favourite of mine and for good reason! Unlike many standard locks on the market, Brisant locks work on multiple levels to protect my customers from intruders.
The anti-snap feature is very important, most households in the UK have UPVC doors and are currently factory fitted with a with a lock device called a euro-cylinder. Previously holding credibility as a home protection device, however advancing criminal knowledge means that they are now prone to burglar attack. The outer shell of this lock can easily be snapped, exposing the rest which can be manipulated and broken, allowing access to your property. All this can be done in under 13 seconds and without a sound!
The anti-snap cylinder will not stop thieves from attempting this, however when they do try, the cylinder works by snapping at the sacrificial cut when a criminal attempts to tamper with it, shutting off the core of the lock which the lock-picker needs to access. 3 trap pins also fire on each side of the lock, acting as a second line of defence, if it suspects it's being picked, bumped or tampered with. Clever hey!
This is the latest form of lock upgrade to come out from the Brisant range. The TS007 is without doubt the most fortified euro-cylinder available on the domestic market.
Regardless of what locks you chose, please always ensure your locks come with this British Standard kite mark. This is a symbol of lock security excellence and no lock in your home should be without one!
