Anti-Snap Locks For uPVC Doors

As a uPVC door lock locksmith and repair specialist I am often called to the aftermath of burglaries in the Rainham area where doors have been broken open and are in need of repair.

The most common method of forced entry to doors in Rainham seems to be via 'lock snapping', a technique that targets older uPVC doors with out of date lock security. I won't disclose details of the attack for obvious reasons but will tell you that the proventitive measure is a fairly simple lock upgrade.

Anti snap locks for upvc doors have been developed to make it extremely difficult to break open a door lock to gain entry. I now stock a variety of anti snap locks for upvc doors to suit any budget.

If you are in Rainham and would like more information on anti snap locks, locksmith services or my door repairs service then please do not hesitate to call me directly on the number listed above.

S.Clark, Ilford - Locksmith
"I am a volunteer and fundraising lead at Ilford and was involved in suggesting options for security enhancements that you recently implemented. I wanted to write to say that I was very impressed with your work which has certainly improved the security at our branch. I thought that your security solutions were comprehensive and the work was well-executed and very neat. As a charity, with no statutory funding, we have to raise all of our funds each year to stay open (some £20,000). Whilst we hadnít budgeted for these costs, because this work was in response to an incident, I thought that your charges were very acceptable, given the amount of work involved. I have kept your details in case I need any work doing and will ensure that I pass on your details to others. Thank you for your help."
