Insurance companies require the following as part of there minimum security requirements :

When it comes to the security of your home or office you should always use a Master Locksmiths Association Licensed Locksmith Company. In the same way you would call a Gas Safe Accredited engineer to repair your Gas/boiler, you should call a professional MLA Approved locksmith company to fit your locks. It is important to your insurance company that the locks that are fitted are insurance approved and that your security is up to date on the current minimum specification required. You can then be assured that your policy will payout in full. As a Master Locksmiths Association Licensed Locksmith Company we always keep up to date on new products and regulations. We ensure that the locks fitted by our Locksmiths are fitted correctly so that they retain their BS3621/BS8621 kite mark and therefore conform to Insurance standard. Incorrectly fitted British standard locks will lose their British standard kite marks and the possibility of an insurance company paying out could diminish as a result of badly installed locks.

You can opt for a five lever deadlock to BS3621 or you can fit a british standard rim lock.

For rented properties that require a British Standard Lock you could use a Era BS8621 BS Rim lockwhich conforms to fire regulations.

There has long been a conflict between a secure British Standard front door lock and fire safety, this has now been overcome thanks to the new Keyless Egress Range. The new BS8621:2004 standard mirrors the BS3621:2004 but is for escape locks. The locks are classified as providing keyless egress at all times. This applies where there is a requirement for an easy action method of opening an external door from the inside with no need for keys or similar devices for unlocking. Especially relevant for entrance doors in rented properties and other buildings. A keyless lever on the inside of the door ensures its possible to make an emergency escape in the event of a fire.

There is also a deadlock range available that also complies to BS8621:2004 which can be keyed alike with the ERA BS8621 rim lock so you can be assured of a high quality lock at an affordable price.
