British Standard Locks
Home insurance providers will often specify that your doors and windows should be fitted with locks that are British Standard.
For a lock to be classed as British Standard it must undergo rigorous tests. These will test the lock’s strength, durability and of course its security. The locks are then re-assessed and re-tested to ensure you have complete confidence in the safety, quality and reliability of the British Standard locks our locksmiths are able to supply and fit.
Identifying a British Standard Lock
To identify a British Standard lock; simply check the face of the lock for the Kitemark logo (pictured on the right). This is often accompanied by BS: 3621 2007 (mortice locks) or BS: TS007 (Euro cylinders) both of which are the current standards required by home insurance providers.
Complying with home insurance requirements
When changing any locks on your property it is very important that you ensure any new locks fitted adhere to any requirements listed in your home insurance policy as failure to do so could invalidate your insurance when making a claim.
