Key lockable Window locks are another great way to increase the security of your property. They are usually required for home insurance purposes on ground floor of properties / premises. Make sure you are compliant.

Reinforced metal hinge bolts are fitted to the hinges of wooden doors to reinforce the door and automatically operate once the door is closed. These bolts are sold in pairs and are recommended for all exit doors.
Lock guards / frame reinforcements
Lock guards and frame reinforcements are another tool to strengthen and reinforce doors from potential ‘kick-in’ burglaries.
Door chains /door restrictors & door viewers
When there is a knock at your door, most people automatically open the door without knowing who it is. By fitting a door viewer, you have a few moments to check who is on the other side of the door. If you do not know the person, by fitting a door chain or restrictor, you can partially open the door without leaving yourself vulnerable.
These restrictors work in the same way as door restrictors and can be fitted to any type of window to give added security to your home or premises.
Dummy CCTV boxes / dummy alarm boxes
Dummy alarm boxes are fitted to external walls of your property or premise, the box has a flashing LED light and a phone number printed on the box which is operational. Dummy CCTV cameras are of great security benefit giving the illusion there is CCTV in operation around your property / premises.
Prikka strip / wall strikes
Prikka strip is an external anti burglary tool which can be fitted securely to the top of gates, fences or walls that can prevent a burglary trying to get in to your property or premises.
