Home Security

Home insurance providers will often specify that the doors and windows on a property must be fitted with British Standard locks.


A ‘British Standard’ lock will have undergone rigorous testing. These tests include strength, durability and equally important it’s security. The locks are then re-assessed and re-tested to ensure the safety, quality and reliability of the locks that have been fitted by a local Locksmith.


Identifying a British Standard Lock

A ‘British Standard’ lock is easily identified by the BS Kitemark logo (pictured to the right) which is usually displayed on the face of the lock. The BS Kitemark may also be accompanied by BS: 3621 2007 (mortice locks) or BS: TS007 (Euro cylinders), these are the current requirements set by the majority of Home Insurance providers.


Home Insurance Requirements

After you have been burgled you may want to make a claim through your home insurance provider to help cover the cost of any damage that has been caused by a burglar. Therefore it is important to meet any requirements that are stated in your home insurance policy as failure to do so could result in your policy being invalidated by your Home insurance provider.

Unfortunately, burglary offences are on the rise so it is important homeowners secure their property more now than ever. If the worst should happen, we at Keytek® can help to prevent the situation from happening again. If you have been burgled, the first step is to call the police and don’t touch anything where there could be vital evidence. Whilst you are waiting for the police to come round and investigate make a note of what has gone missing and any details you may have about the incident. Once the police have come round and taken evidence it is time to call the Locksmith.


Keytek® Locksmiths are experts in the security industry so we are able to replace your locks to the highest standard and talk you through the different levels of security locks. Our Locksmiths will also take a look at the locks around your home and give you the best advice and recommendations to put your mind at rest in knowing your home as secure as can be.
