Lock Repairs York

Locks, like anything else are prone to wear and tear, this can often result in them becoming, stiff, turning without locking or unlocking the door and even failing completely. A faulty lock does not always mean that you have to completely replace the lock, it could just be a case of repairing or servicing that is required to resolve the issues your having, this will in turn save you money! The average lock will last between 10 – 12 years, however, this much depends on how frequently it is used and the quality of the lock that you have installed. Here at Fortis Locksmiths where possible we will always choose to repair a lock instead of replacing it helping customers to keep their costs down. However, in cases that a lock cannot be repaired, and a new lock is needed we will be able to change the lock in the same visit.

Lock Upgrades York

Lock upgrades are always in high demand. This is mainly due to insurers becoming a lot stricter with their guidelines, every insurer requires your external door locks to either meet or exceed their minimum standards of BS3621 and for uPVC doors this is TS007. For insurance providers to provide you with a policy for your property they will first expect your locks to either meet or exceed the minimum requirements. This is prompting a lot of customers to contact us to come and upgrade their locks. If you have an existing policy in place and your locks don’t meet the requirements set by insures then you could find that when you come to make a claim your policy is invalid, and claims will not be paid out! You can check if your locks are up to standard by looking for the BS3621 kite mark, this can usually be found on the faceplate or barrel of the lock. If you are still unsure, then our team at Fortis Locksmiths will be happy to carry out a security survey and advise you on what locks are best for your property in order to fulfil insures guidelines. By upgrading the locks at your property, not only are you satisfying the insures you will also be improving on the overall security of your property. By having higher quality more secure locks fitted to your home or business you will be less of an easy target for burglars meaning they may either not bother with your property or if they do decide to give it a go it will be much more difficult which could be the difference between a break in and an attempted break-in!
