I have a wide range of options to make your property’s doors more secure:
These are metal pins that are fitted a few inches below and above the hinges. When closing the door, they’ll close into a keep on the door frame.
Hinge bolts are especially useful when you have a uPVC door that opens outwards because in that case the hinges are situated on the outside of the door. This makes them an easy target for intruders.
Hinge bolts are inexpensive and can be installed easily and quickly. Usually, you’ll need four to six hinge bolts altogether, depending on the number of hinges (there should be a bolt above and below each hinge)
Sash Jammers are commonly used as additional security to secure uPVC doors or windows and are available as locking and non-locking options. A Sash jammer is fitted to the uPVC frame and can be turned through 90 degrees to block a window/door from opening should the lock be bypassed by a thief.
Sash Jammers are fast and easy to install and they can be a great addition to uPVC door security when installed properly.
They also double as a handy child-safe device, to prevent toddlers accessing forbidden areas.
A door chain is a restriction that has been designed to prevent distraction burglary and stop an intruder from entering your home when you open your front door.
Most uPVC doors can have a security chain fitted, as long as the correct fixing screws or security rivets are used.
An alternative to using a standard door chain is fitting a door chain restrictor with a ring, which are suitable for uPVC / composite doors and will fit any door that has a door lever type handle.
Multi-Point Locking System
Many modern uPVC doors come with a multi-point lock. Usually, the more locking points they have, the more secure they are.
The main feature is a long strip on the edge of the door that secures the door to the frame at several points.
Replacing an existing lock system with a multi-point one is not necessarily the cheapest option, but it’s one of the few ones that can dramatically enhance security.
When it comes to door security, multi-point locks are the easiest to recommend due to their effectiveness.
