As home owners we are becoming more and more aware of the importance of home security. Many new homes are built with home security devices and homeowners will upgrade by spending £100’s and even £1,000’s on a system. This in essence will alert them to an intruder inside thier home, but the likelyhood is that the external door lock (on their entrance doors) probably hasn’t been given much consideration. These are commonly just a standard lock cylinder, worth only around £3. It sounds ludicrous when you think about it, as these can be easily upgraded to a higher security lock at far less cost than a home alarm system.
This is why we, as replacement window and door installers in Bury St Edmunds – Suffolk, are so excited that we can now announce our Solidor Doors are even more secure. From January 2016 all our Solidor Composite Doors will come as standard with the 3 Star – Ultion High Security Cylinder!
French and stable doors will also be provided with a pair of keyed alike, key and thumbturn Ultion Cylinders. Secured By Design doors have also been upgraded with the Ultion cylinder replacing the Avantis cylinder guard.
Therefore, all existing doors can be upgraded with a high graded security lock cylinder.
Solidor state that their doors will now be the most secure composite door available on the market. Solidor CEO explains “Solidor’s hardwood laminated timber core is almost certainly the most secure composite door on the market, so it doesn’t make sense to sell it with a cylinder that is less secure”. To reinforce this statement Solidor have released videos showing exactly how secure these new cylinders are.
