door closer

ASL locksmiths’ expertise was required for a door closer installation for a commercial property in Hove. We supplied and fitted the door with a 2003V Briton door closer which features an adjustable backcheck, a square cover and flat form armrest. Providing high quality security even for common doors, this door closer is:

– EN1154 and CE Marked
– EN1634 fire testing for 2 hour timber fire doors and 4 hour steel fire doors
– Certifire approved CF11 – Approval covers regular, transom and parallel applications

Upon installation, we also calibrated the door closer to suit the owner’s preference of the door’s closing speed.

Make safety a priority by having door closers installed on your fire doors, bathroom doors, and/or exit doors. ASL locksmiths can help you select and install the right type of door closer for your building. Have enquiries? Call us now and we will respond promptly.

peaceful repossession by asl locksmiths

ASL Locksmiths attended an early morning court ordered commercial forfeiture at a property in Brighton & Hove.

Upon gaining entry, we supplied and fitted two strong 3-star platinum APECS barrels, perfect for emergency situations. They bear a BSI 3 star Kitemark, are fire compliant, anti-pick and anti-drill. A high quality lock suitable for securing the property from trespassers. We also supplied dimple keys which are more challenging to tamper with than a standard pick.

A landlord can exercise a right to end the lease and take back possession of a property if the tenant has breached the terms of their lease. It’s prudent to prevent potential damage by discreetly securing the building.

ASL Locksmiths are highly experienced with keeping rental and commercial properties safe with locks that prioritise particular security needs.

Advanced Locksmith Training in Blackburn

With new and advanced models of security locks regularly entering the market, it’s important to keep up with new technology. ASL locksmiths strive to provide customers with the best service possible which includes up-to-date expertise on all the new non destructive tools and techniques.

To sharpen our skills, we enrolled for a three-day advanced course provided by Fortress Locksmith Training in Blackburn. They specialise in NDE or non destructive entry. We were taught new techniques on a 2 day high security cylinder opening course and a 3 day mortice lock opening course.

Locksmithing is not always a one size fits all solution. Aside from owning a large number of specialist tools and having extensive experience, always learning new techniques is a must.

We took home to Brighton new skills from the training and we also met great locksmiths from the Midlands. It was a very positive learning experience. For those who want to learn locksmithing skills, Fortress Locksmith Training offers courses for both beginners and experienced locksmiths. If you want to learn more about their courses, head over to their website.

euro barrel cylinder

ASL Locksmiths were called to install locks in a number of new homes on a building site near Brighton’s seafront. We replaced old locks and installed 21 thumb-turn operated Euro cylinder barrels. We then collected the discarded locks to be properly recycled.

Thumb-turn operated Euro cylinder barrels allow locking the door from one side, perfect for doors that require controlled access on one side and easy access on the other.

Depending on your door and security needs, we can supply and fit the right locks correctly for your property. ASL Locksmiths have extensive experience with lock installation for commercial customers who often require many locks and keys to cut onsite.

We are sub-contractor locksmiths for building/construction sites, office blocks, industrial units, shops in the Brighton & Hove area. Our trusted team will travel further in Sussex for substantial commercial jobs.

PIR LED light

ASL Locksmiths installed a PIR-activated security floodlight with three lamps, outdoors using a pre-existing power supply.

PIR (Passive Infrared) LED floodlights are installed outdoors to enhance the level of security for homes and properties. The sensors will detect changes in temperature and radiation levels within their field of view. The lights will be activated the instant a person is detected.

The lights produced by these outdoor security lights deter burglars, trespassers as they don’t like to be identified. The PIR sensors can be connected to your home security system, so you would be notified of any irregular activity outside your property.

Call ASL Locksmiths Brighton for a quick security light installation. We also install full home security solutions in addition to our locksmith services. Contact us now!
