Looking at upgrading your door security but not quite sure where to start?
Today we take a look at multipoint locks and how they can defend against common burglary techniques to help keep your home, belongings and family safe and secure.
What is a Multipoint Lock?
Put simply, a multipoint lock is the long strip which bolts in to the side of the door, found on most uPVC and composite doors. It locks at multiple points along the frame with the turn of a key, hence the name multipoint lock.
When purchasing a new door, it's essential that the multipoint lock is secure and tested to the highest standards to combat burglary techniques.
Fullex are one of the oldest multipoint lock manufacturers. In fact they were the first company to achieve the 'Secured by Design' approval on their multipoint locks.
Secured by Design refers to the UK Police flagship initiative for secured products and designs recognised for their effectiveness in reducing crime.
Statistics show that by using Secured by Design products in your home you are up to 75% less likely to be burgled and show a reduction in criminal damage of as much as 25%.
In order to gain the Secured by design approval, each Fullex product has been tested to meet the stringent criteria set out by the association of Chief Police Officers initiative, giving you complete reassurance and peace of mind.
Fullex multipoint locks are design for a number of different doors including:
- uPVC front and back doors
- Composite front and back doors
- Patio doors
- French doors
- Double door locking systems
- Emergency exit doors
Make sure you ask your installer for a Fullex multipoint lock in your new door.
