Burglars Use Blow Torch
There are various methods that you encounter as a Doncaster locksmith where thieves try to get into homes.
A method that thieves use to gain access to a property is to use a blow torch to burn through upvc doors. It is an unusual method and only works where the door hasn't a reinforced panel or does not have three star rated locks.
The aim is either to try and burn around the handle and make snapping the locks easier or burn through the door and if the keys are left inside the lock, then reach through and unlock the door. I have seen it where the outside panel has been melted and the glass removed. I as a Doncaster locksmith have only encountered it once and that was in Intake.
What would I recommend? If you are considering a new door, composite doors are better. But usually more expensive. Three star rated locks are a must on all doors. Do not leave keys in the back of doors, nor on view.
