Fire Safety Compliance And Security With The Double Cylinder Deadlatch
Fire Safety Locks Brisbane
Residential fire safety has been in the news and on everyone’s minds since the recent horrific Grenfell Tower tragedy in London. Authorities here as well as in the UK have been auditing and reviewing cladding for flammability – and in some cases making some alarming findings that are also, thankfully, being swiftly addressed.
And who among us did not find themselves thinking about the fire safety of their own dwelling? Rest assured, compliance with fire safety regulations does not have to mean leaving your house or unit less secure.
Spate Of Break And Enters To Units
Recently, we at Barrier Locksmiths have seen an upswing in contact from customers who have experienced break and enters. These have been noticeably prevalent in units, and have involved thieves forcing the lever lock. As a result, Barrier has spoken to numerous tenants who share a keenness to hear about ways they can boost the security of their residence.
With the haunting memory of Grenfell still fresh on our collective minds, everyone has also wanted to find security solutions that also provide peace of mind by ensuring compliance with fire regulations.
The 001 Deadlatch
To address the dual concerns of tenants of residential units, Barrier Locksmiths recommend professional installation of a 001 double cylinder deadlatch. The Lockwood 001 is Australian-designed and offers leading performance and reliability for security and durability.
It offers peace of mind also due to its cut-resistant stainless steel bolt and 11 concealed anchorage points. Importantly, it is fully compliant with residential fire safety regulations and Australian Safety Standard AS4145.2-2009 SL7D8C6.
Other 001 Deadlatch Advantages
Other market-leading advantages to this high-security protection model are that it comes in knob and lever versions and has a hold-back function for when you just want to use the door as a passageway.
Reif Aitken of Barrier Locksmiths recommends the 001 deadlatch to address those dual concerns of security and fire compliance. It is sturdy enough to prevent many a would-be thief from gaining entry, or at the very least will slow them down and cost them precious time. Adding to its appeal, especially for those looking to upgrade the security on their present residence is that in most cases it can be keyed to suit your existing key.
Other Lock Recommendations
The 001 double cylinder deadlatch is our number one recommendation. But there are a few other locks that could also be fit for the purpose. Such locks include:
Door Knob Locks – Typically a keyed lock cylinder on the outside and a turning lever on the inside. This is the typical lock on every door and should be accompanied by a deadbolt. Easy pickings for a burglar.
Keypad Locks – Function much like doorknob locks, but with a code instead of a key. Should be paired with other door locks for security purposes.
Bars, Bolts, and Chains – These are used on the inside of doors. Because they cannot be tampered with from the outside, they are thief-proof. You will see chains in many hotel rooms and residential apartments as an extra security precaution. A chain with an additional keypad lock is a good combination.
Don’t take any chances when it comes to your security. Your front door should have the standard doorknob in tandem with a deadbolt or a chain/bar/bolt.
Give yourself the peace of mind you deserve, and contact Barrier Locksmiths today on 0429 197 981 for professional installation of the 001 double cylinder deadlatch.
