Concerned about 'Lock Snapping', 'Cylinder Snapping', or 'Lock Bumping'?
Do you have concerns about ‘lock snapping’? Perhaps you haven’t heard of the term? It’s a method commonly used by burglars to gain entry to a property that has a euro cylinder (which includes most UPVC doors and a fair number of aluminium and other doors, too).
As many of these types of doors are fitted in commercial premises, this represents a security risk. No specialist knowledge or dedicated tools are needed by the burglar – the cylinder is broken to allow manipulating the lock open. Even multi-locking points are no safer as each point is still operated by the cylinder. There is a relatively easy solution, however - you can have ‘anti-snap’ lock cylinders fitted instead of the vulnerable type, preventing burglars from exploiting this easy way into your property and vastly improving the security of your business. Aberdeen Alarm Company can fit these new locks and advise on any other security concerns you may have. Get in touch with us soon to discuss your requirements.
