    Advice for new front door


    Hi, I’m debating whether or not to have my door replaced (and if I am, I’d wait until then before having a new lock system installed). Is it more effective to have a five-lever mortice lock on a wooden door or standard cylinder lock for a uPVC door? How do their prices compare?

    "On a upvc door you have a multipoint locking system which only allows 1 lock.
    A wooden door would allow you to fit a Nightlatch and 1 or 2 5 Lever BS3621 Insurance Approved Deadlocks.
    Prices depend on the size of your door and what style you like."

    "Upvc with euro locks are far more secure than wooden with 5 lever mortice"
