Lock changes or upgrades

You may have just moved into a new property?  You may have had a break up and require the locks changing after a person leaves the property. Or you may have just lost your keys and would like to change your locks for peace of mind. Whatever the reason you require your locks to be changed we can help.

If your locks haven’t been changed recently then there is a good chance that they need to be upgraded. This could be a mortice lock that needs to be upgraded to the latest British standard (BS3621).

Panic Exit Devices

Do you know…?
There are new European standards. Fitting illegal devices could mean fines or imprisonment. Double panic bolts will be outlawed.

What are the new standards?

BS EN 1125 applies to panic applications where the exit door is used by the public and provides “safe and effective escape through the doorway with minimum effort and without prior knowledge of operation”. For example: theatres, schools, shops, hospitals, cinemas.


BS EN 179 applies to emergency applications where the exit door is used by people who “are familiar with the emergency exit and it’s hardware and therefore a panic situation is unlikely to occur”. For example: a place of work, never accessed by the public or people unfamiliar with the escape drill.  This type of product should only be used in limited circumstances – be sure before you fit it! 

We can help you with panic exit or fire exit devices.

We supply and install, service and maintain new and existing audio and video door entry systems.  Hard wired and wire free for both business and home, using well known brands such as Videx, Fermex, Bell Systems, and BPT.  These can be custom built to suite your requirements.
