Double Glazed Units

Anti Snap Locks
What is “lock snapping” ?
Thieves have devised methods of snapping these types of cylinders locks in a matter of seconds and still be able to operate the lock to open the door.
This threat can be considerably reduced simply by upgrading the cylinder to one that is specifically designed to prevent this method of attack. We recommend that all vulnerable doors using Euro-Profile cylinders be upgraded to incorporate ‘Break Secure’ cylinders.
Euro cylinders are mainly fitted to uPVC doors but some aluminium and wooden doors also use this type of lock.
How do I know if I have a vulnerable lock?
Solution Break secure, or anti-snap cylinders, are specifically designed to combat lock-snapping.
A cylinder has been designed that although it will snap, it will snap in a predetermined position leaving intact a portion of the cylinder that will still provide security and still require key operation to open, thus preventing the easy manipulating of the locking system.
Keepsafe can install all types of anti snap locks including Yale and ABS to ensure your doors are secure as possible.
We are able to replace handles, hinges, gaskets and locking mechanisms to most types of window. In addition to this we also repair tilt and turn windows.
