I am a certified Which Trusted Trader
No matter what line of business you’re in modern technology ensures that your workspace will contain valuable equipment – whether it be tools, machinery, electronics or computers. Your commercial premises are also a repository for your customer data, financial statements and other information pertaining to your business which you need to keep safe and secure.
If you’re sensible you’ll have your commercial property protected by all manner of alarms and monitoring systems – but the last line of defence is a top quality, high performance lock and key system safeguarding all entry points.
Mark Stoddart of GHI Locksmiths has been a professional, independent local locksmith for many years, working for businesses across Somerset, Wiltshire and south Gloucestershire.
He is highly experienced and knowledgeable about all locking systems, advising on the appropriate locks for any kind of commercial purpose, from locks for office cabinets and combination locks for gym lockers to camlocks for post boxes and super-secure 5-lever mortice deadlocks for entrance doors.
Most insurance companies require that business premises be secured with locks that conform to BS3621 for their insurance policies to be valid. This applies to locks on doors that need a key to open them.
You can ascertain whether your current locks comply by looking for the British Standard Kitemark – a logo shaped like a heart – on the faceplate of the lock, which should have BS3621 stamped below it. If your locks do not conform they are probably not insurance approved and you should contact GHI Locksmiths to have them replaced with locks certified by the British Standards Institute.
BS3621 locks come in different types and have been rigorously tested to withstand burglary techniques such as drilling and picking.
If you want to make sure your business premises are locked up tight as a drum when you leave work for the day, give Mark a call and have him come in and survey the situation. He’ll propose suggestions for upgrades or improvements and provide you with a free no-obligation quotation.
