British Standard Locks : What are they and How Does It Affect My Insurance?

British standard locks and how the kitemark appears on the lock.British Standard Locks: The security of a lock can’t be determined visually, so physical assessments are carried out to evaluate the lock’s security by rigorously testing wear and tear over time and replicating the most commonplace methods of compromising the lock. The standards for locks are produced by the British Standards Institution (BSI).

If a product has been certified by the British Standard Institute for meeting the required security standards, they will display the British Standard Kite Mark on the packaging and the product. Some insurance providers will insist that you have British Standard locks installed to be eligible for cover.
