It’s not hard to imagine why ensuring maximum security for our homes and commercial properties is one of our foremost priorities. After all, this is where we keep most of our belongings, be they expensive electronic items or precious personal property. So, good security measures are a must. And although some secondary measures such as CCTV cameras and guards are essential as well, we cannot really imagine security without having the right kind of locks and doors.
Yet, in our years of experience, it is astonishing to observe how little attention people pay to these issues. We, at Key4Freedom, value the security of our clients above everything else. And we don’t charge for our advice. So read some of our tips below to see how well-secured your property really is.
Why is a good quality lock important? Locks are the first line of defence, against any intrusion attempt, in the absence of the aforementioned security measures and the last line of defence in their presence. Either way, they’re extremely significant. But installing a lock on your door is usually not enough. You need to choose the right kind of lock. You also need to pair different locks together to ensure maximum security. And, above all, you need good quality locks.
If you are unsure of the quality of your locks or unsatisfied with their number, don’t hesitate to contact Key4Freedom for lock replacement or new lock installation.
Why should you hire a professional locksmith?
If you experience a lockout or require fresh installation of door locks, don’t do it yourself and do not, in any case, allow an amateur to do it for you. The reason why you need the services of professional locksmiths Is plain and simple. When you fix your TV, you don’t do it yourself or give to an inexperienced person, you go to a professional, right? Why is that? It’s because your TV is valuable and expensive. You wouldn’t trust a non-professional to fix it. They can do more harm than good. Now apply this principle to home security. Your house contains more than just the TV or other valuables. How, then, can you trust its security and well-being to a non-professional?
A professional locksmith service, like Key4Freedom, not just installs the locks properly but supplies a guarantee for the services. In case of any problem after the lock change or lock fixing, you can hold us accountable. Not just that. During a home or car lockout, you can trust our team of local locksmiths for securing access on an emergency basis and, more importantly, in a non-destructive manner. Just give us a call and we’ll be there in 30 minutes.
What are British Standards and how do they affect you?
One last and the most crucial thing to understand about security is the system of British Standards. If you apply for a home insurance, more often than not, you would be required to install British Standard locks and doors. But what exactly is that? Well, simply put, the British Standard is a system of testing to assess how capable your lock is to provide satisfactory security. And after rigorous testing, some locks rise above the others. These are known as the British Standard locks, commonly identifiable by the BSI ‘kitemark’ on the packaging.
We strongly recommend you to install British Standard locks. If you want to learn more, here is a list of locks for different kinds of doors.
