Sometimes it’s the seemingly little things that can make a big difference to the security of your premises. We’ve done a bit of work involving blocker plates lately and this is a great example of a small step you can take to improve security.
What are blocker plates?
Blocker plates are designed to help prevent access to a lock’s latch or the bolt of the lock that holds the door shut. They also help prevent slipping the latch or the old credit card trick that you see in a lot of movies and T.V. shows.
Burglars and intruders know this to be a vulnerable spot on a lock, and if accessible they will try to pry back the latch or bolt to gain access to your property.
Can blocker plates be fitted to any door?
Blocker plates are designed for both open in and open out doors. They are generally manufactured in a way to give them extra strength that prevents them being pried at.
Blocker plates come in many different designs and sizes and can be installed for all different kinds of locks, frames and doors.
They are designed to give an extra layer of security and to slow down or hopefully prevent access to the latch or bolt.
When it comes to business premises we highly recommend blocker plates for any external door on your commercial property as burglars target these sorts of doors regularly.
Blocker plate are generally a through fix application which means that they bolt through the door which gives them extra strength against attacks.
They also send a message to any would be burglars that the owner takes security seriously and it’s best to move on to an easier target.
