How do you determine what kind of lock you need for a particular door?
You should choose a lock system for use on a particular door based on the type of accessibility you want yourself and other people to have. As a general rule, the best type of lock system for regular access would be a tubular lock type system. For added security, you can opt for a deadbolt lock or a combination of both.
What should you remember when installing deadbolts?
Our locksmiths at Sidcup would like to remind us that deadbolts aren’t like tubular lock systems that can hold a door in place or have door knobs that people can hold on to when accessing doors. As such, if you plan on using deadbolt locks by themselves, it would be prudent to install handle bars so that people can have something to push or pull the door.
