Deadlocks are one of the most commonly used locks on front doors. A deadlock means an intruder cannot break an adjacent glass panel to open the door. They are key-operated, single bolt locks which are embedded into your doorframe. There are several types of deadlock, which all provide great protection from intruders because they are robust and difficult to force, manipulate or pick.
If you are an elderly or vulnerable person or do not feel safe answering your door, then why not get one of our unique door restrictor and security chain devices. This will allow you to answer the door and safely see who it is making you feel safer when visitors come to the door.
