Lock Fitting in Barnet
B.S. 3621 Sashlock
Both security and quality from the Union brand.
We fit all sorts of locks to all sorts of doors and windows!!! Locks for Insurance Purposes are most important. So correct fitting is vital. Bear in mind, that to alter a British Standard lock will negate the standard.
Locks can be vital for safety as well as security, for example child locks on windows and doors. We also recommend fitting good reliable locks to sheds and garages. We will also fit other security devices such as Anchor Points. These are especially good for securing moveable items such as ladders and bikes.

We had to fit this Nightlatch to an aluminium door for Insurance Purposes. Firstly it is not usual to fit these locks to aluminium doors. Secondly the metal section is hollow and the lock has to be let in to the side of the door. We overcame the problem – carefully removing a piece of the door so the new lock sat nicely. Pieces of wood were then cut to size. After coating in expanding glue and inserting in the door the lock was ready for fitting. Thus allowing all the screws to go into wood rather than just thin aluminium. Fitting the keep to the frame was relatively easy!!! Result? Another happy homeowner!!!

Enfield Garage Bolt
Increase your garage security with these locks.
An alternative to Enfield Bolts is the → Garage Defender. Obviously a great visual deterrent. It bolts into the concrete pad. To lock, the ‘T’ bar is put in place and a padlock stops removal. It is now impossible to open the garage door more than a few inches. These are all extra security measures used in addition to the standard garage door lock/handle.
← These locking bolts undoubtedly increase garage security. They attach firmly to the door, with the bolts moving deeply into their holes in the frame. We supply and fit these in pairs, one on each side of the door.
The 'Garage Defender'
These need securely bolting down.
uPVC Lock fitting in Barnet
We carry a large number of lock spares in stock. We will use these to repair locks if the rest of the lock is in good condition. This keeps costs down. If a lock is not repairable or we feel a repair is not cost effective we will recommend fitting a new lock. Usually a new gearbox is necessary. This is often due to lack of maintenance. As soon as the handles start to become stiff the door or the frame keeps need adjusting. Make the adjustments soon enough and a new gearbox will not be necessary. More information on uPVC repairs.
The small cog (top left) has stripped the teeth from the left hand rack. Probably poor door adjustment.
Fitting Additional Security Locks in Barnet
Additional security measures are available for doors and windows.
There are locks to suit all types of doors and windows. Wooden, uPVC, Aluminium, Iron/Steel and Composite.
In brief there are three main reasons to fit extra locks.
1. Firstly security, to satisfy Insurance Company Policies
2. Secondly, for peace of mind
and 3.Thirdly for safety reasons
Good examples are – 1. A wooden back door. It is highly likely locking bolts will be required top and bottom. Insurance companies’ will probably also want window locks on windows too. Possibly two on each, especially if the sash is over 600mm wide or high.
2. Peace of mind. It is a good feeling to know your house is secure when you go to work, out shopping, to enjoy leisure time or go to bed.
3. Toddlers very soon learn how to open doors. A device out of reach at the top of the door will prevent this and possibly save an horrific accident. Windows too can have restrictors fitted to stop chidren opening the window wide. A window may appear too high to access. What if the child drags a stool or similar to below the window?

Lock Fitting in Barnet - Additional Security.
Furthermore, additional, security measures are available for doors and windows. Of course there are locks to suit all types of doors and windows. Wooden, uPVC, Aluminium, Iron/Steel and Composite.
There are specifically three reasons to fit extra locks :-
Firstly, security, to satisfy your Insurance Company.
Secondly, for peace of mind.
Thirdly, for safety reasons.
Good examples are – 1. A wooden back door. Generally locking bolts will be required top and bottom in addition to the existing lock.
Note too, Insurance Companies’ will also probably require window locks. Possibly two on each, especially if the sash is over 600mm wide or high. 2. Peace of mind. It is without a doubt a good feeling to know your house is secure when you go to work, out shopping, to enjoy leisure time or go to bed.
3. Toddlers very soon learn how to open doors thus increasing risk. Accordingly a device out of their reach at the top of the door will prevent this and possibly save an horrific accident.
Equally, fit window restrictors to stop chidren opening the window wide. Indeed a window may appear too high to access. What if the child drags a stool or similar to below the window and climbs onto it?
