The best front door locks for enhanced security are five-lever mortice deadlocks with multi-point locking systems and dead-lock action.

Looking to install a new front door and unsure which lock is the safest? According to the latest safety guidelines, a secure front door should have a five-lever mortice deadlock that is British Standard 3621 or European Standard EN12209 certified. 

Brackenwood doors meet industry standards for security. Our manufacturers work closely with the police under the Secured by Design scheme to ensure that your door hinges, locks, bolts, glazing and features are all as secure as possible. 

Our front door locks feature:

  • A 10-point locking system 
  • 4 pre-compression rollers for smooth operation
  • 3 opposing steel hooks to maximise strength
  • 2 anti-lift bolts to prevent your door lock being dislodged
  • 1 centre latch for ease of use
  • Dead-lock action for added security

As well as ultra-secure locks, we also provide a range of additional security features for front door installations. Our composite doors are installed within a reinforced door frame and feature a spy hole and premium adjustable hinges that meet all the latest standards and legislation requirements.

If you are unsure whether your front door lock is secure enough, we recommend speaking with security professionals. Brackenwood’s highly experienced team would be happy to provide advice on choosing the right front door lock for you.
