Making your uPVC doors more secure

One of the most common issues we deal with is problems with uPVC doors. Over time, the locks can perish, making considering an uPVC door lock replacement necessary.

If you live in Totley, call us if you’re experiencing issues with faulty locks, door misalignment or any other issue – a lock replacement is generally more affordable than buying a new door.

Replacing window locks

Window locks can often break or stop functioning correctly, and many people ignore the problem when this happens. However, as experienced locksmiths, we highly recommend that you consider getting them repaired or replaced before intruders can access your home or business.

Fitting high-security locks to homes in Totley & Sheffield

We recommend our customers consider Ultion door locks, a high-security, anti-snap lock designed to combat some of the most common methods thieves use.

Ultion locks have several built-in features that will enhance the security of your property. For example, most standard door locks have five security pins, but these anti-snap locks have 11, capable of creating 294,970 key combinations.

Also, the locks have a strong molybdenum core that’s 25% denser than iron, which helps prevent lock drilling and snapping. If tampered with, the product will go into lockdown mode, enhancing your home security.
