I received this leaflet through my door and thought I would expand on the section called “Keep burglars out”
Not all UPVC doors lock by lifting the handle then using the key.
Some double glazing doors require 2 complete 360 degrees turns of the key and no lifting of the handle.
Others (not many) auto lock when you lift the handle and do not require the key to be used on the inside at all!
Most people think that when they shut their double glazed front door it is fully locked but most multi point locking systems require the user to lift the handle and or turn the key from the inside.
On my own front and back doors I have fitted internal locks that can not be tampered with from the outside, this makes any double glazing door much more secure.
If you would like extra security fitted to your front or back door, please give me a call to discuss your options.
