HISTORY OF YORK

  



UPVC - DOUBLE GLAZING - COMPOSITE DOORS - ANTI SNAP LOCKS WITH LOCKSMITH YORK

The main key lock for these doors is called the Euro cylinder. There are two main types of the cylinder - The Standard lock and the Anti snap lock. Most lock manufacturers produce these locks. The Standard lock is fitted in most doors, however it came to light that the standard lock became vulnerable to attack by unwanted persons. A few years ago producers of these type of locks produced the Anti snap lock. The Anti snap lock slows down any unwanted person trying to gain access to properties. There are many types of the Anti snap locks on the market. As I Know from previous experience, many house holds have different budgets, thats why I fit 4 types of Anti snap locks, from standard to very high security.

UPVC DOOR MULTIPOINT LOCKING SYSTEMS SUPPLIED AND REPAIRED BY LOCKSMITHS YORK

All Upvc, double glazing and composite doors will have a multipoint locking system fitted as the main lock of the door. The System is operated by lifting of the handle or by turning the key known as keywind. There are many various types of locking systems. This is the most expensive part for the doors. Some systems are no longer made but you can find an alternative. When most systems fail they usually are in the lock mode with the door jammed in the frame. I open and replace failed systems in all the types of door. Please find below some images of some of the multipoint systems on the market.

   

NIGHT LATCHES AND RIM CYLINDERS SUPPLIED AND FITTED BY LOCKSMITHS IN YORK

Night latches and Rim cylinders are fitted to wooden doors (some metal doors) for extra security. Most people know these locks as yale locks. Again many lock firms make there own style yale type locks. Years ago these were the only kind of locks fitted to doors. There are in certain circumstance where only Yale locks are fitted to the door instead of a 5 lever mortise locks, if that is the case then the yale type lock should be British Standard to ensure you are covered by the home insurance. There are different levels of security for the yale type locks with some being very cheap to expensive. As I mentioned before most yale locks fitted these days is to give you extra security on your door in addition to other locks. Yale type locks are also fitted to main doors of buildings that require access to flats/apartments. Here are some images of some various yale type locks.
