ASL Locksmiths Brighton supply and install commercial fire-rated door closers & emergency handles. Here is one of the two units we installed on a fire-rated door in a Brighton office.
Fire-rated door closers automatically close doors thus sealing off to prevent the spread of fire and smoke. These devices operate on internal springs, cylinders, and valves that adjust the closing of the door.
In selecting a door closer:
- close the door from any angle it may be opened
- covered by the European standard EN 1154
- compliant to EN 1155 (if it is controlled by electromagnetic function)
- CE marked
Do you need help with installing fire-rated door closers? ASL Locksmiths have supplied and installed door closers for many commercial clients. We can also help you with fire door hinge repairs.

Our team went to a home in Brighton and installed fresh fit Union strongbolt deadlocks. We supplied two keyed alike deadbolt locks to be operated by the same key for user convenience.
The Union strongbolt deadlock we used is kitemarked to British Standard 3621:2007 and approved for high security applications. It is anti-pick and is equipped with hardened steel pins to prevent attacks from sawing. This lock also features a chamfered bold design that increases the durability of the lock.
Deadbolt locks are ideal for high-security solutions, thanks to their unique lock mechanism. A deadbolt lock works without spring and can only be opened by rotating the lock cylinder using a key or knob turn. This makes it anti-pick, unlike spring pin lock mechanisms.
Compared to standard locks, deadbolt locks:
- Offer stronger resistance and cannot be pried with crowbars and lock picking tools
- Have a unique lock mechanism, making them sturdy against forceful physical attacks
- Are challenging and time-consuming to break so burglars would think twice about breaking in or else they’ll be caught in time

Our services were called to a home in Brighton to refit a deadlock. For the entrance door with a wooden frame, we supplied a high-security Euro cylinder-operated deadlock. We used ERA and an ISEO half euro barrel.
The ISEO thumbturn cylinder we installed is a standard shape cylinder, meaning it is compatible with many multi-point locking systems, the complete range of Euro profile and Euro profile mortice locks.
The thumbturn makes it easy to turn, lock, and unlock. It provides added security from the inside, it’s smooth and strong, making it a great choice.
Our lockfit is perfectly flush, so no need for an extra step of caulking or sealing.

We make repossessions operations smooth by:

The first job in Brighton on this lovely Sunny Monday morning for ASL Locksmiths was replacing a failed gearbox on a UPVC door in Dewe Road.
We had a call from a customer in Woodingdean today who explained that he could not open or close the upstairs window properly. We found the hinges had failed. The original installer had used the incorrect stack height (size), this resulted in excess strain and the subsequent failure of the hinge. ASL replacing failed uPVC window hinges.
Here’s another work from ASL Locksmiths in Brighton. It’s a British standard deadlock and sash lock.
We see British standard locks in front and back doors in homes. They’re also in landlord locks and rental property locks.
When you have a British standard lock installed, you get peace of mind because:
– Your doors are thief-resistant and your security is up to standard.
– These locks are already tested against Burglary techniques like drilling and picking.
– They follow your insurance policy. Most of them need this standard as the bare minimum.
Here’s how to tell if your locks are British standard:
– You see the British Standard kitemark. It’s the logo that looks like a heart.
– You see the British Standard number BS3621 stamped below the kitemark.
You can see the kitemark and the number are visible in the picture.

“Pay peanuts, get monkeys”
But it’s a shame when you pay good money and still get a headache, like a store owner in Brighton who paid an extortionate amount of £140 to their local locksmith and only got a broken fire door.
The lock could have been easily picked, or worst-case scenario, drilled out, in order to gain entry.
But the local locksmith (we won’t name names) smashed a hole through the door. Now the store owner has a fire door to replace.
Simply repairing the hole won’t be enough to meet the fire regulation codes.
In their rigorous effort to help, the local locksmith also broke the barrel, resulting in a second lockout. ASL Locksmiths attended the property and we got it done right.
This could’ve been avoided if they worked with the right service providers. Save your money.
