It's dark outside!

The majority of burglary's are generally carried out by opportunists. Under the cover of darkness they try door handles and identify standard euro cylinder door locks which are easily the break in to. What can you do to prevent this? Aside from a good daily routine of checking that your doors and windows are locked on an evening you could upgrade your door to a highly secure Solidor composite door. All composite doors from Solidor benefit from a 48mm solid timber core, this is 10% thicker than Solidor's nearest competitor. Other security benefits include toughened safety glass and 3 star solid secure cylinder locks which are one of the strongest and most secure locks available on the domestic markets. These Ultion locks are supplied as standard with all Solidor composite doors supplied by Windoor Online. Should you be broken into and entry was made by breaking the Ultion lock then you will also benefit from a £1,000 guarantee that Ultion offer.
