These are available in a range of styles so they match the rest of your door furniture – from smart brass to antique black. Easy to fit, and available at low cost, these are entry level security items that can help protect people from unwanted intruders. Knowing who to open the door to is a wise precautionary measure and door viewers will help. Fitted to front doors, wide angle security door viewers allow a viewing angle of 180° for maximum safety, and again they are offered in a number of styles to fit budgets and interior design styles.

Door closers are an often overlooked security item, but they are very useful in offices and shops were it is important to restrict access. They are also useful in blocks of flats or anywhere there is communal but restricted access.

It features a lighted push button with name plate and has an adjustable bell volume. Its cable extends to a maximum of 30m. It also has a button for door lock function. You can see and speak to any callers and easily lock out any unwanted callers.
