Why It’s Important To Secure The Patio Area Of The Home

The patio door and it’s surrounding windows are one of the most common points of entry that criminals use to enter a home. For these reasons, reinforcing the patio door and windows is highly recommended.

One of the best ways to reinforce the doors and windows is to use a multi-locking system. A multi-locking system allows a door to be locked at multiple points into the door frame, making it a much stronger seal than that of a standard lock.

However, not all patio and window door frames are strong enough to make good use of a locking system like this. It’s in these instances that multiple locks should be installed.

Additional ‘push to lock’ locks are recommended, these use a key to open and are easy to operate. Make sure there is enough frame to fit them on if drilling is required. If in doubt, consult the installer or manufacturer.
