‘Up and over’ garage doors can provide an easy target for opportunist burglars as in many cases very little force is required.
Safe and Secure Portsmouth locksmiths can help with our professional lock repair, upgrade and installation services for all types of garage doors, including fitting mortice deadlocks, padlocks with hasp and staple and garage defenders which can provide added security and a visual deterrent and with their bolted base plate and heavy duty arm work by preventing the doors tilt action.
In the same way as with any home security the best solution will be dependent on the type of garage door, its position in relation to your property as well as how the door closes. Common problems with garage doors leading to lock replacement, upgrade or repair are:
Lock alignment issues resulting from buckled doors
Disconnected or snapped wires between locks and rods
We recommend fitting suitable locks to connecting doors to integral garages and this is best achieved by fitting a mortice lock complying to British Standard. Double garage doors can be fitted with like keyed mortice deadlocks on either side of the opening.
