Door Security

Improving door security requires protection not only against break-ins while homeowners are away but also protection from intruders knocking at the front door. Two of the most popular products for door security are the UAP Sliding Door Chain and also the Narrow Door Chain, which are made from high grade steel and can exceed a breaking force of 200Nm as a result of each link in the door chain being individually soldered! The extra strong UAP door restrictors also allow the homeowner to identify and communicate with unknown visitors and deter forced entry and are ideal for people with limited hand movement or arthritis as there is no chain to deal with, just a solid locking bar.

Another impressive product we offer is the UAP Identity Card Entry Slot, the ultimate security accessory for protection against rogue traders and bogus callers. By enabling the homeowner to check the ID of a caller without having to open the door, it is the ultimate protection for people who feel vulnerable when opening their doors.

Improving door security doesn’t have to be expensive and that is why at UAP you will find other remarkable products to impress your customers.

The UAP High Security Escutcheon, available in 3 finishes, gives extra security to lock cylinders and has several security features including a bevelled edge, making it a lot more difficult to grip the escutcheon with pliers in order to pull it off. As for the Patent Pending UAP Kitemarked Cylinder Guard, it can be used with any door handle, it is perfectly compatible with a majority of locking systems and it can be fit in combination with almost all Euro Cylinders.

Another way of improving security might be by guaranteeing that a door remains in a preset position, according to every homeowner needs. The UAP Cabin Hooks offer durability and strength to withstand everyday use and are also a great way to keep doors open or shut, being ideal for front doors, storage areas or cabinets and much more. On the other hand, the UAP Door Stay limits door opening to a preset position or to a maximum of 90 degrees and can withstand gale force winds, making it in our opinion the best door stay on the market!

The UAP Rack Bolt Set is an ideal safety precaution if your customers have small children in the house and you want to protect them from leaving the home undetected. And because the UAP Architectural Fire Resistant Door Closer has been developed to prevent fire from spreading for up to 60 minutes, it is perfect choice to enhance door security.

Key Fishing or Letterplate Fishing is a technique burglars use to get hold of keys, purse, handbags and more without even having to enter a property! They simply push open the letterbox flaps and use a long hooked rod, similar to a fishing rod, to ´fish´ for keys and handbags. Meaning they can then use the keys to just walk into a property and help themselves to anything they want before driving off in the homeowner’s car! That is why the UAP Letterplate Restrictor Shrouds are perfect to stop hands getting through the letterbox and either hooking keys or opening the lock. The UAP Security Mail Bags are developed to ensure easier retrieval of post, improve home security by preventing manipulation of the door lock through the post opening and also draft proofing the home.
