Door closer installation

Door closers, which are an often-overlooked handy device, ensure that your doors latch shut when closed. A door closer could be the solution if you have a door that keeps slamming or doesn’t close properly or you have concerns about fire regulations or health and safety compliance or even security.

Door closers are often found in places such as communal buildings, schools, hospitals, care homes and offices, particularly commercial settings where the door needs to be kept shut. Also, door closers provide energy savings as they prevent warm or cool air from escaping. In the event of a fire, they prove invaluable, helping prevent the spread of fire and smoke.

We can offer door closer installation on most types of doors, including: steel, timber and aluminium. The installation of door closers is best done by a professional locksmith, one that has the experience and skills in commercial and residential door closer installation. This is important as there are different door closers which correspond to the size of door you have installed, providing the ideal solution to your situation. Give us a call and speak to one of our experts if you need help choosing the best door closing mechanism for you.

Door chain installation service

The installation of a door chain lock is a simple and relatively cheap way to gain extra security in your home or office.

A door chain lock is an additional lock to work alongside the standard deadbolt and all door handle locks already present on your door.

A door chain has two sides; the secure side with a chain attached and firmly bolted; and the sliding side, with a knob at the other end that can be inserted and slid into place.

These door chain locks are useful for a number of reasons. Firstly, it adds another layer of security. If you’re deadbolt is cut and the latch pryed or bumped, a chain lock provides another layer of security preventing access to a home or other type of building. Door chains can be made of stainless steel, hardened steel or plated cast aluminium. Hardest metal chains can deter thieves looking for easy access to a home or business. Properly installed chain locks can be difficult to reach from the outside, even when a thief has already bypassed the knob latches. Another great feature of the chain lock is it can allow you to open the door slightly in order to receive a delivery or speak to someone at the door without giving them access to your home.
