Thieves have been breaking into homes and stealing possessions for many years. Usually, homeowners were able to keep these thieves at bay by simply locking doors or adding additional locks to windows, but things have changed and thieves are getting bolder.
Recently, there has been a huge increase in home burglaries, particularly in Melbourne. These gangs aren’t always breaking in through the front door, instead focusing their efforts on what is perceived to be a softer target; the garage door. Upon entering the garage, they can gain easier access to the house via the internal door, stealing household items and often driving away with your car. If you want to reduce the chances of falling victim to these thieves, there is something you can do – increase security by installing a garage door with a B&D Auto-Lock.
The B&D Auto-Lock is a new garage door accessory that will allow you to increase your home security. It enhances your home security by making it more difficult to break into a garage when a garage door is closed. The garage door is the largest door in your home and B&D have responded to market demand to create a product that delivers security and convenience.
Regular garage doors ‘lock’ upon closing of the door. Unfortunately, this setup offers only a minor level of locking strength making it relatively easy for thieves to break in by applying pressure to the door. The thieves only have to apply a little force to the door to get inside; that all changes with the B&D auto-lock.
When the garage door is closed and locked with the auto-lock technology, thieves will have to apply double the force on the lock in order to break in. Many thieves will be unable to apply the force needed and therefore will be deterred from entering your garage or your home.
The B&D Auto-Lock utilises smart key technology, enabling you to remotely lock your garage door using nothing but your regular remote control. Once closed, the door lock will require double the normal force to lift it manually from that position.
There are two ways you can go about getting a B&D Auto-Lock. First, you can install the B&D Panelift® Icon™ garage door. This style of B&D garage door comes with the B&D Auto-Lock fitted as standard.
If you don't want to install the B&D Panelift® Icon™, you have another option. The B&D Auto-Lock can be installed as an optional extra on any B&D Panelift® garage door.
