Some of the locks we install
Mortice locks are probably the most secure types of locks found on a property. They are mostly fitted to wooden doors, as opposed to UPVC and metal doors.
These types of locks are fitted INTO the door panel, with only a keyhole showing inside and out. When the door is locked a bolt comes out the lock and goes into the door frame.
Due to the lock being concealed in the door frame, it makes it hard for intruders to tamper with the lock. Even some ‘professional’ locksmiths don’t know how to open these type of locks!
British standard mortice lock
These are the ultimate security, in the the mortice lock range. They are the locks that most insurance companies want fitted exterior doors.

3 lever mortice lock
Although the 3 lever mortice is a good lock, they are better suited to doors where less security is required, such as internal doors, lock ups, and the garden sheds.
The benefits of using this type of lock, over the British standard version include a cheaper price tag, and ease of installation.
The 3 lever mortice can be fitted on any wooden door. Whereas the British standard mortice requires a minimum door thickness of 44 millimetres. This is due to the thick anti drill plates.
