Disturbing rise in lock snapping for uPVC Doors

Posted by Lea · February 22nd 2012

A recent news article published on the BBC news website has found that lock snapping (a technique used to snap a lock barrel in two to gain access to a home) has accounted for a quarter of all burglaries in West Yorkshire since 2009.

Unfortunately, this is not new news in the replacement door industry, and has been a common reason many homeowners across the UK have upgraded their old uPVC doors to Rockdoor Composite Doors, which are now often asked for by name.

Rockdoor composite door cylinders are rigorously tested to ensure they are anti-snap, anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-pick for the ultimate in composite door security. They are also safeguarded by reinforced Zinc cylinder guard protectors, to ensure the burglar has little or no chance of snapping a Rockdoor cylinder.

All Rockdoor composite door locks are produced by Winkhaus, the world’s leading lock manufacturer. All Winkhaus German engineered locks are approved by the Master Locksmith’s Association. You can rest assured that all Rockdoor composite doors leaving our production facility are safe, strong and thermally efficient. For more information please visit our security features page
