Here at Owl Locksmiths and Security we appreciate that, safety & security are of paramount importance for elderly or infirm relatives and the people that care for them.
Recently we were requested to assist a family, who were worried that their fiercely independent father may have another seizure and that if he had left the key in the lock, they would not be able to gain entry too him.
For the majority of locks whether in wooden doors or Upvc doors there are various options available in order to aid their safety and security.
The door we were asked to help with was a Upvc door with a multipoint locking mechanism fitted.
We assured them that there was a safe, secure solution to this issue and recommended a “key & thumb-turn” euro cylinder. This would ensure that their father could safely operate the thumb-turn and lock the door from the inside, but should emergency access be required, the lock would be operated by key, as per any lock, from the outside and there would never be a risk of a key being left in the lock on the inside.
Everyone concerned were overjoyed with this solution as safety and security were not compromised and peace of mind was gained.
This solution was quick and extremely cost effective and one that Owl Locksmiths and Security regularly undertake. Should you know someone either a relative or other, then why not consider this option and call for more information and a quotation.
