UPVC Door (Insurance Compliance)


1.  Your door lock should have a British Standard Kite Mark on the front of the lock. There is an example in the left picture.

2.  The lock should fit flush against the door handles. If the lock protrudes more than 30mm then it can be snapped and access gained to your property in under 10 secs.

3.  Your UPVC door should have a multi locking system, for example when you lift the handle a number hooks, bolts or rollers will move and engage with the keeps on the door frame.
