Colchester Security Lock Experts

Lock security has always been an important part of our trade. However, in recent years, we recognize that security has become even more of a consideration for our customers.

Criminals are becoming more adept at breaking into homes and standard locks unfortunately act as little defence to the majority of modern day thieves. Luckily, Lockforce Locksmiths Colchester are experts in fitting the most secure door and window locks in the market. In response to home insurance criteria, the majority of locks we fix and upgrade to are 5 lever operations, such as the British Standard Lock ES3621. British Eurolocks are also popular and shatter-proof cylinder technology in the locks we fit ensure defence from the most persistent of trespassers.
