One of the most common questions we get asked is, what kind of locks can you fit? The answer is any type. In our 15 years in business we have fitted literally all types and makes of locks. We stock a huge selection of locks so we’ll be able to find a lock that suits your door or window aesthetically as well as providing the level of security required

We’re just as comfortable with commercial properties as we are with residential ones. We often repair and install locks and doors for pubs, restaurants, clubs, gyms, leisure facilities, hotels, offices, shops and other commercial buildings.

We supply and fit:

  • Rim cylinder locks generally known as ‘Yale’ locks
  • Mortice locks generally known as ‘Chubb’ now UNION/YALE branded locks
  • Legge, Era, Mul-T-Lock, Ingersol, Banham, Iseo, Viro and many more………….
  • BS3621 locks meeting insurance standards or more advanced locking systems to meet specific insurance requirements
  • Double glazing door handles, cylinders and locking mechanisms
  • Digital locks
  • Padlocks including digital padlocks


We work equally well with wood and uPVC doors, frames, all supplied fitted and can repair or replace depending on your preference. As with the choice of door and lock, we offer specialist guidance on when to save money and repair your door versus when you need to invest in a new door to avoid compromising your security.
Repair options include replacing the lock mechanism, handle replacement, fixing non-closing or difficult to close doors and windows, repairing or replacing Euro Cylinders and failed door mechanisms.
