We are often asked “Why does my insurance company require me to have a 5 lever insurance approved British standard deadlock BS3621 on my door”?
Insurance companies now clearly state on their policies that all entry and final exit doors must be fitted with a high quality lock to prevent a break in. A 5 lever Mortice Deadlock is the minimum requirement to meet this criteria.
Most reputable insurance companies are normally fair when dealing with insurance claims but they will very quickly pick up on failure on your part to comply with their requirements set out in your policy. The insurance company is well within its rights to decrease your payment or not pay out at all.
Crime is on the rise because of the current economic climate, fitting a 5 lever deadlock is a small price to pay to protect your home, family and belongings and to give you peace of mind.
At Alexandra Locksmiths we recommend that you check all of your final exit doors at the front, back and side of your home to make sure that they are fitted with a 5 lever deadlock, to ensure the safety of your property, valuables and most importantly your family.
We can offer all types of locks from budget to high security lock options such as Banham and Ingersoll in London.
