Types of locks..

The phrase security locks, usually means ‘security cylinders’.

The cylinder is the part where you put the key in.

The two most common types of locks that are used on residential aluminium & pvc doors:

  • Traditional ‘standard type’ cylinders
  • Anti-snap ‘security’ cylinders

The majority uPVC and aluminium sliding porch & patio doors are fitted with standard cylinders, leaving them vulnerable to burglaries and break-ins.

Security cylinders will instantly improve the security of your home & safety of your family.

Security cylinders are more expensive than standard types but in our opinion, the extra cost is well worth the additional peace of mind…

What are anti snap security cylinders.?

Lock or ‘cylinder’ snapping, refers to a problem where the standard locks commonly fitted to most uPVC and Patio doors, can literally be ‘snapped in half’ by applying force to the cylinder. 

Thieves can often snap these types of cylinders locks in a matter of seconds & with very little noise.

Anti-snap security cylinders are designed that if they have force applied to them that they wont snap in two.

It is important that the correct size cylinder is fitted as this will further increase your security level..

PATIO DOOR DOCTOR also has a few tricks of its own to ‘beat the burglar’ which we wont disclose here..

There is good information about the problem provided by a UK Police service here.
