Mortice Locks

Mortice locks are normally found on wooden doors and in some cases found metal doors and gates 


The main sizes on these locks are 2.5" and 3" and differs between 3 and 5 leavers depending on the security required! If fitting from new lockforce Durham will all ways fit a 5 leaver British standard as this is the highest security and is insurance approved!

A few jobs we have completed we have came up against 3 leaver Mortices which yes will lock your door but will not meet your insurance standards! we have recommended for the customer to upgrade to a British standard type and after showing customers the differences they have made the right decision and upgraded to meet the insurance requirements! 

These types of locks come as a sash lock or a dead lock! As a sash lock this will have a dead bolt and a latch and the latch will operate but pushing the handle down! The dead lock is exactly the same but with out the latch the dead bolt would be the same! Most cases with a dead bolt the customer will have a night latch also fitted to the door so that would latch the door! 

With both types of Mortice locks they came with 2 keys as standard but if you require more we could cut keys in site! At lockforce Durham we supply and fit this type of locks and will also offer a 1 year warranty on all locks fitted by 1 of our engineers

Insurance

There are so many things to consider when it comes to the security of your property. However, one factor which many of my customers often don’t take into account is whether their locks are compliant with their home insurance policies. While such compliance is often taken for granted, it’s best to be 100% sure…as alas not all locks are created equal!

Indeed, for when commonplace locks on our doors and windows can be snapped using only a few household tools, insurers may be less inclined to pay out!

Fortunately, at Lockforce Durham, we only use high quality locks that are compliant with the majority of policies such as BS3621 on the home insurance market, meaning you’re better protected from theft and financial loss should a burglar attempt a break in. Fitting locks that are made to the industry standards set out by the British Standards Institute, you can always recognise the locks we stock by the BS kite mark printed on our locks, which signals its excellence in the field of lock security.

If you are unsure if your locks meet BS3621/2007 insurance approval and Police Approved standards please give us a call today to discuss a lock upgrade or if you have questions please ask at Durham@lockforce.co.uk

Call our Durham locksmiths today on 01916 660161 for advice, request a rapid response callout or to see how we can best help you.

We've had a fun day around Durham today with 3 jobs having exactly the same issue! All customers had previously had the wrong size locks fitted so we upgraded them to the correctly sized, anti snap locks.

The original locks were old and badly fitted, meaning they stick out and can be easily snapped, making them an easy target to burglers!

After a quick visit from Lockforce Locksmiths, all customers are now a lot safer and a lot happier with their new anti snap locks. 

On Monday 15th January 2018 we received a call from Caffè Nero in Durham city centre explaining they had a locksmith out recently to renew a snapped hinge but now the door isn’t right and the bottom lock wasn’t locking!
