Safe as houses with Sterling

Published: 24 January 2017

Along with perimeter deterrents, Sterling knows that one of the first lines of defence against unwanted visitors is making sure the doors and windows are secured. Offering everything from cylinders and nightlatches to mortice and rim locks, digital locks, door/window locks and sash jammers, it’s easy to see how Sterling is helping retailers latch onto sales opportunities that make customers feel safe as houses.


UK police forces have reported that a quarter of all burglaries involved snapping of lock cylinders, as no specialist tools or knowledge is required. Sterling has responded to this by developing an affordable solution in the shape of its “Snap Safe” 6 pin cylinders. Independently certified as Sold Secure Approved, these cylinders feature an engineered shear line.

This ensures the cylinder will snap at a predetermined point, but continue to keep the door locked. Combined with increased anti-drill protection, this offers increased protection and further deters burglars from continuing with their attack. Sterling’s nightlatches come in a variety of styles, sizes and finishes, from the traditional to the recently-added deadlocking model.

A key feature of this nightlatch is that it can be deadlocked from the outside with a full turn of the key, providing additional security for doors with (or near) glass panels. All of Sterling’s locking products are developed under strict quality control processes and come with a 10 year guarantee. Together with comprehensive technical and sales support, Sterling provides both customers and retailers with added peace of mind.
