Choosing the Right Garage Door Lock & Security
These days, most people use their garage not just for car storage, but also as a place to keep many other valuable items such as pedal bikes, power tools, garden furniture and kitchen appliances, so making sure your garage door locks and windows are providing adequate protection from unwanted intruders is really important.
Here are some ways to improve your garage security:
The garage defender arm is fixed to the front of an up and over garage door and the base of the lock is secured into the ground underneath the door, preventing the door from opening. Garage defenders are a great deterrent as they are clearly visible whilst also providing reassurance of optimum security, however the locking arm is quite heavy so if your garage door is used on a daily basis, you may find this device a bit of a hindrance.
A wireless alarm system is easy to install and offers peace of mind. By monitoring your garage with an internal PIR motion sensor, any movement will be picked up in the garage and an alarm will sound in the house.
Garage Door Bolts
Garage door bolts come in a range of sizes to suit most types of garage door. Most garage door bolts send the bolt through the garage door and locks into the frame.
Garage Door Mortice Locks
A mortice lock acts as a combination lock. It is dual-action in that it acts as a door know and deadbolt and is recommended for side access garage doors along with extra security bolts.
