Secure doors are nothing without secure locks
There are many components that contribute to Rockdoor being the most secure door on the UK market, with locks being just one of them.
With most exterior door manufacturers using different locking systems and components, we wanted to ensure you know, exactly why Rockdoor locks are so secure resulting in an entrance door that is both stylish and ‘Secured by Design‘.
View the Rockdoor range of composite doors
The Rockdoor range of composite doors comes in 25 composite door styles, all available with 13 different door colours to choose from. So no matter if you’re looking for new front doors, back doors or even double doors, French doors or stable doors. There’s a wide range of Rockdoor composite doors available to compliment the look and style of your home.
If you don’t work in the external door industry locking cylinders can be somewhat of a minefield, but rest assured that at Rockdoor, we pride ourselves on using the very best components, such as a 3-star Diamond Sold Secure Cylinder, which is one of the most secure key-operated locks in the industry.
Thanks to this 3-star rating (the very best rating a cylinder can achieve) our lock cylinders are completely burglar proof meaning they can’t be bumped, drilled or snapped – the most common ways burglars try to gain entry into a property.
Should our composite door locking cylinder detects forced entry, a hidden lock within the molybdenum cam fires into action, meaning burglars cannot get through, keeping your home and everyone in it safe and secure.
In fact, we are so confident that Rockdoor cylinders are 100% burglar proof we offer a £2,000 security guarantee to all our customers!
Along with our 3-star Diamond Sold Secure Cylinders, each of our doors that are manufactured from our Lancashire based production facility also comes with a multi-point locking system, as standard.
All our multi-point locking systems use German engineered, solid steel hooks which attach the door sash to the frame using full length keeps, rather than individual pocket keeps, which other composite door manufacturers may use resulting in a much less secure door.
Whilst all Rockdoors are manufactured with a 2-hook locking system homeowners do also have the option to upgrade to a 4-hook design. However, our 2-hook multi-point locking systems are already enough to achieve our extremely high security standards!
Whilst our 3-star cylinders and multi-point locks come as standard on all Rockdoors, a switch-latch is simply an optional part of the locking mechanism, which allows you to control whether your composite door completely locks behind you, like a slam lock would, or whether your door can open and close freely in a similar way a roller-latch would operate.
The switch-latch is commonly found on some of our more contemporary door styles, such as the Vermont, Vogue and Indiana. These door styles all typically feature a stainless-steel bar handle – a look that is becoming increasingly popular on homes across the UK.
If your door does feature a switch latch, then you will need to use the key or thumb turn to engage the multi-point locking system completely.
When ordering a Rockdoor you will get three branded purple keys per door. However, for Stable doors as they come with two locking cylinders, one for the top and one bottom of the door, then this comes with six keys (three keys per cylinder).
We understand that sometimes keys can get lost and that moment of realisation when you lose a key can be stressful, however, getting replacement keys for your Rockdoor really could not be easier.
Simply request blank keys from the installer that fit your Rockdoor and take these to your nearest high street key cutters, such as Timpson’s.
In the very rare event that your lock fails, or you need to change the lock cylinder on your Rockdoor, the cylinders are completely changeable, you will just need to contact your installer who will be able to make the required changes.
