Door Security Cardiff
When it comes to home & business security you need to know that you’re secure. Good security is a must these days with rising crime so feel free to ring City Locksmiths Cardiff for some FREE advice. When it comes to door & window security, most insurance companies require a minimum level of security so we detail below what insurance companies may require.
Timber/Wooden doors generally require a minimum 5-lever mortice lock and some require a British Standard 5-lever mortice lock. The British Standard lock should have a Hard Plate cover, a minimum 20mm bolt, & a security curtain to make these locks harder to “pick”.
uPVC doors require a minimum 3 points of locking but these days most multipoint mechanisms come with 5 points of locking for extra security.
The Euro/oval cylinder in the uPVC door generally requires a minimum of 6 pins, but these days most professional locksmiths like City Locksmiths Cardiff supply & fit a Snapsafe cylinder which is an upgrade on the “old style” cylinder.
If you want to upgrade your Euro cylinder even further, then you should fit a TS007 3* High-Security SnapSafe Euro cylinder. City Locksmiths Cardiff is your local Licenced supplier of Brisant Ultion TS007 3* High Security SnapSafe euro cylinders which carry a £1,000 anti-snap guarantee.
City Locksmiths Cardiff also supply & fit “Lock – Lock” door handles to uPVC doors so this enables you to lock your door from inside without using the key.
We also supply & fit additional security such as door chains, sash jammers and patio door bolts so please ring me for some FREE advice.

uPVC Specialist Locksmith Cardiff
City Locksmiths Cardiff have a reputation for being Cardiff’s superior UPVC specialists as most of our work comes from customer recommendation or repeat work.
City Locksmiths Cardiff carry out repairs for all problems occurring from UPVC doors, composite doors, windows or conservatories.
Here are some examples of my locksmith work, the first image you see is ‘before’ and the second image is ‘after’.
The most common faults on UPVC doors are misalignment between the door itself and the frame, weather conditions can also make a difference. This in turn will cause the locking of the door to become difficult and put a strain on the multipoint mechanism. Once the multipoint mechanism is under pressure it will eventually “snap or break” the internal workings leaving you, the customer, unable to either “lock or unlock” your door.
City Locksmiths Cardiff recommends that once you start to hear a different noise from your locking mechanism or if you start to feel cracking when you’re lifting the handle, then this is the right time to call City Locksmiths Cardiff. It’s better to replace a failing system before it breaks, otherwise you could be either locked in or locked out.
City Locksmiths specialise in cylinder lock upgrades and over time we have noticed how most people don’t realise their “cylinder” is the heart of the door.
If you’ve got a uPVC door with a poor quality euro cylinder, then you are allowing potential burglars to use the “lock-snap” technique.
The lock-snap technique started in the north of England, whereby an intruder can use basic tools to snap your euro cylinder out of your door, which allows the door to open in a matter of seconds!
City Locksmiths Cardiff ONLY fit snap-safe euro cylinders as standard, because they have excellent security and are resistant to the lock-snap technique.
Other companies may fit cheaper euro cylinders to gain your service, however, we consider the customer’s security over price.
