What kind of locks can I have for my front door?

The types of lock that are fitted to UPVC doors varies from one manufacturer to another and what the fabricating company offer to fit in them, but they all conform to British Standards.

Modern UPVC doors are very secure and the locking systems that they feature have multiple latches that fit into the frame to protect your home and property.  The specific locking system that is fitted to your door will often depend on the style and size of the door that is being fitted, but your safety would not be compromised.

Modern smart locking systems can be included in the specification for many doors that allow you to use your mobile phone or biometrics in place of a key, and these are increasingly popular with homeowners who want the convenience of being able to open a door without needing to fumble around for their key.

Your installer will be able to talk you through the different options that are available to you so that you get a system that is right for your needs.
