Patio door locks
When it comes to burglaries and destructive entry into homes, patio doors and french doors are by far the most targeted areas.
This is why it is CRUCIAL to ensure your patio door locks are fully functional and to the required Police & Insurance standards.
The term “Patio doors” actually refers to sliding doors but over time the phrase “Patio doors” has morphed into the wording used to also cover all types of doors such as french doors and bifold doors.
Why are Patio doors targeted the Most?
Patio doors are usually double doors located at the rear of the property and have large amounts of glass installed making them an enticing prospect for a criminal.
Remember burglars are always thinking of the easiest access area and of how best not to be seen.
Therefore a great point of entry for the burglar is to the rear of a property out of view of potential witnesses whereby they can feel comfortable in gaining entry, often undisturbed.
Once entry is gained in to property, an easy escape and favourable route to the rear offers the burglar the best chance of evading capture.
