Protecting your home with British Standard locks
After a burglary, we recommend replacing your home’s current locks with British Standard locks. These maximum security locks are built to the highest quality, and the appearance of the British Standard Kitemark can in itself act as a visual deterrent to potential intruders.

Another positive aspect of using British Standard locks is that installing them will often result in lower home insurance costs. This can be particularly important when protecting your home following a burglary.
Another key home security recommendation is to invest in a wireless home alarm system. Yale’s wireless alarm kits are quick and easy to install and offer discreet protection for all types of properties, from flats to large family homes.
What’s more, wirefree alarms are quick and easy to install, as there is no hard wiring necessary – so no need for an electrician. Plus, the alarm control panel and room sensors can be fitted without damaging décor or disturbing carpets, meaning if you’ve just redecorated after a burglary, there’s no need to start from scratch.
