Burglary Statistics


Keeping crime down


Burglars let themselves in through unlocked doors and windows in 35% of all burglaries.


A large proportion of burglaries that are being reported are down to people leaving their homes insecure.


You are ten times more likely to be burgled if you do not have basic security.


There are simple and easy ways of keeping your home safer from criminals that take only few minutes to put into practice.


Locking doors and windows is key and is the most effective barrier against the burglar.

If you make your property more secure, it's a lot harder for criminals to break in.


Statistics taken from Devon and Cornwall Police Constabulary website; 24/03/13


euro cylinder snapping

Cylinder Snapping


Millions of houses fitted with UPVC doors are under threat from burglars because of a design weakness in the Euro Profile cylinder mostly used on PVC-u doors. Burglars have been using a simple tool to snap and remove the Euro Cylinder enabling them to retract the locking points on the door. It does not matter how many locking points you have on your PVC-u door, if they are able to snap your Euro cylinder they are able to pull the handle and walk straight in.



Your House Insurance Could Be Void!


If you do not have BS3621 Insurance Approved locks fitted to your premises your house insurance could be void as most Insurance companies specify BS3621 installed locks.

Look for the British Standards kitemark stamp this will be located on the faceplate of your mortice door lock as below.
