At Elmhurst we’ve been taking care of people and their homes, for nearly 40 years and with 90% brand recognition we are still the leading name in home improvement and security in Leeds and Yorkshire.
You may have seen recent reports in the media of a weakness in the locks of PVCu doors. This weakness is currently being exploited by burglars especially in West Yorkshire. The problem is growing. Burglars using simple everyday tools exploit an inherent flaw in the design of these EURO PROFILE CYLINDERS. The cylinders can be overcome in a matter of seconds.
This lock has been fitted to the majority of PVCu doors throughout the world. No matter how secure or elaborate the multi-point locking mechanism, if the cylinder is compromised the door can be opened in seconds without difficulty.
The risk of forced entry is considerably reduced if an anti-snap/anti-bump cylinder is fitted. Our “Secured by Design” and british kitemark approved cylinders are one of the most popular security cylinders available, offering good security at an affordable price.
