Common Door Lock Types
There are door lock types that are commonly replaced in the UK. These door lock types include
Nightlatch (Yale Type)
A nightlatch holds the door shut using a latch type lock some of which can be easily set into a deadlock position. The nightlatch is sometimes referred to as the Yale Type lock because its leading manufacturer is Yale. The lock is also sometimes known by its traditional name, the Rim Lock, and is mounted on the surface of the door unlike the Mortice lock. The nightlatch is used as a form of security enhancement and not meant to be the only lock on the door.
Mortice Locks are fitted inside a slot (mortice) that is cut into a wooden door frame. A bolt in the lock slides out and locks into the keep when the key is turned. The makes it difficult to pick as the entire locking mechanism occurs inside the door. The mortice lock has two significant types. The Mortice Sash Lock comes with a handle, while the Mortice Deadlock is always operated by key and does not have a handle. Mortice locks are commonly found on doors made out of timber or aluminium and some are made to meet British Standard BS3621.
The Euro-lock is the most popular type of lock and found on different types of doors such as uPVC, timber multipoint doors and aluminium doors. Due to their popularity, doors using certain types of Euro-lock cylinders are prone to burglary attacks and break-ins. Euro lock cylinders are easily keyed alike which makes it possible to open numerous locks using one key.
Key Change Locksmiths can offer higher security Euro-Locks which are Brisant Ultion and are British Standard 3 Star Diamond, sold secure.
British Standard Locks
Before any lock is considered British Standard, they must have gone through rigorous security tests in which their strength and durability are assessed. The British Standard is used to provide a standard for insurance policies in the UK.
British Standard locks have the BSI Kitemark imprinted on the faceplate of the lock. Cylinder Rim locks and Mortice Locks are required to meet British standard BS 3621.
