Access Control

Access control for upvc doors

 

One of our clients required an access control system for upvc doors. Clubb Security came up with a solution where others had failed with a Borg mechanical digital lock to replace the existing handles, resulting in a happy customer with cost effective access control for 3 door sets.

Locking Your Multi Point Lock (MPL) Door

I am seeing an astonishing number of people who do not know how to correctly lock their multi point locking doors, they just pull them closed behind them when they go out – the door isn’t locked. Please remember to lock it properly by lifting the handle and turning your key in the lock, if you don’t it is just latched and easy for a burglar to bypass without damage giving issues with any insurance claim.

Failed Multipoint Lock (mpl)

Attended to a lady in Crowborough after a locksmith’s failed attempts to open her upvc back door with a broken multipoint lock left in tears.  We were able to open the broken lock, fit a new mpl gearbox and leave her overjoyed with a working upvc back door.

She thought she was calling a local Crowborough Locksmith she found on Google but it turned out that his company was in London, so do your research!

To avoid disappointment call a professional locksmith and security company, preferably a member of the Master Locksmiths Association.

 

 

 

Door And Window Security – Week 2 NHSM

UPVC or composite doors older than 15 years could be at risk of cylinder snapping.  Upgrade to one specifically designed to prevent this method of attack.

External timber doors should be secured using a mortice lock or  nightlatch that meets BS3621.

All windows should be fitted with at least 1 appropriate lock.

Stay secure – lock all doors and windows when you leave your home, 73% of burglars gain entry via a door.

How many people have keys to your home? If you’ve recently moved house it’s advisable to change the locks, you never know who may have a copy of your keys.

UPVC Door Locks

THE TEMPERATURE’S RISING and we’ve had our first call of the season to a lock out on a UPVC door suffering from the hot weather, these doors can be problematic in the summer.  2013 reached a record high with a large number affected.  TIP:  IN THE SHORT TERM if you experience heat related problems on a door which has been cooking all day, we have found that a bucket of cold water or running a hosepipe may alleviate the problem!

We are able to adjust doors and multipoint lock mechanisms to allow for heat expansion.
