Services we offer

Anti Snap Lock Installation

People have their locks changed for many different reasons. Our qualified locksmiths can provide you with the most up to date information on the different types of anti snap locks that are available.

In the last ten years, there has been a significant rise in the lock snapping technique used on euro cylinder locks.  The lock snapping technique is a favourite amongst burglars at the minute.  They use a significant amount of force onto the lock which then snaps the cylinder in two.  This is a quick and easy method and you do not have to be an expert to carry out this technique.

What are Anti Snap Locks

Anti-snap locks are high security euro lock cylinders.  These locks have been designed and tested to protect against the lock snapping method.

The anti-snap cylinder lock, provides a worthy security solution, combining all the features of the euro cylinder lock whilst producing higher levels of security.

The anti snap cylinder has a line cut into the cylinder body.  This line is known as a sacrificial snap line. When burglars apply force to lock, the cylinder will automatically snap along this line. But don’t worry as the actual mechanism stays intact so your door will remain locked.

Tips For Security Upgrades

Replace or Upgrade Locks – Any old or damaged locks will need replacing and more than likely need upgrading. Also, if your locks do not meet BS3621 or TS007 then they will definitely need upgrading not only to ensure the security of your business but also to comply with insurers minimum requirements.

Restricted Key Systems – This is a system that you as a business owner can put in place. It means that only you as the business owner will have a sole copy of the key and if any spares are needed your permission will be needed to make one. This way you will know exactly how many copies of the keys there are and who has access to them. This helps reduce chances of the keys being copied or stolen.

Window Locks – All windows should have locks installed so if the windows at your business don’t have locks then they will definitely need them installing. Dependent on the location of the windows at your business premises other security measures may be recommended to use alongside locks.

Cabinet Locks – Any cabinets that store valuables or sensitive information or medication should all have locks installed.

Technology – These days there is a vast range of high-tech security solutions readily available. They vary in price and ability so you will be able to easily find something that suits both your business security needs and budget.  A few examples include:

  • Smart locks, these locks allow you to be able to monitor when a door has been unlocked and who has unlocked it, they also have the ability to grant access from a distance.
  • HD CCTV, having CCTV in high definition is not only a huge deterrent for burglars but it also allows you to remotely monitor your business.
  • Security Alarms, these are another great deterrent for burglars, it is also worth carefully placing signs warning that the alarm is active.
