Trellidor security gate locks are strong designs that are fitted using specialist tools. These tools are not easily available at hardware stores, which is one of the safety features built into Trellidor gates. You need to call in your local authorised Trellidor supplier to fix the locks for you.
A gate that engages in more than one point inside the gate makes it harder to force the gate open. The Trellidor retractable security gates fitted in homes have this type of draw-bolt lock. The internal locking points are not visible or accessible when the gate is closed, but they are there, keeping the gate secure.
Security Gate Locks Containing 2 or 3 Locking Points
The lock cylinder must be able to resist picking, bumping, drilling, snapping or any other tricks of the criminal trade. Retractable gate locks are fitted with high quality cylinders that are extremely difficult to damage. You lock up simply usig one key which is quick and easy.
A lock that is fitted into the leading edge of the gate and locks into the facing door frame is a far stronger locking system than one fitted into the surface of the gate. It is harder to tamper with, especially when combined with the features explained in the previous two points.
A slam lock gate is a security gate that locks automatically when you slam it shut. The concept of a security door that locks by closing it with some force is not new. It has been around since the original Yale lock that was invented in the late 1800's in America, so it is a relatively old system.
A dead lock gate is a secure gate that requires a key to open and close it. These locks were also invented in the 1800's, this time by Jeremiah Chubb in England, who together with his brother founded the Chubb company, well known for their safes and locks.
