Common Household Locks in Worthing
The most common type of lock that is used in Worthing are Rim Locks which are fitted flush with the outside surface of the door. They are most commonly used in combination with a night latch, this is most common in Worthing households that were built prior to 1990.
Because of the high usage of Rim Locks most households in Worthing tend to have solid wooden front doors. Wooden front doors are prone to swelling and therefore sticking causing the lock to not correctly engage with the keep.
It is this case that most wooden front doors in Worthing are also fitted with a five lever, insurance approved, Mortice Lock which functions in combination with the Rim Lock to provide added security and meet insurance standards.
Many of the original locks fitted to wooden doors do not meet insurance approval as their not built to meet current British Standard. Seymour Locksmiths recommend speaking to your home insurance company and checking that the locks on your home meet their standards should you need to make a claim.
