Protection against burglary

Protect what is dear to you

Having a burglar inside your own house is everybody's nightmare. Doors are also a target. The good news: Burglars have very little time and therefore give up after a few minutes if properties are well secured. We help you optimally protect your doors.

Keeping things secure!

We have put together a few key security questions for you that you can use to check your doors and thus leave your home with a good feeling. If you like, you can download the checklist in PDF format and print it.

1. Door check: for the front door to your house or apartment

  • Does the door have a tested security lock?
  • Does the door have tested security fittings, with a cylinder cover (if necessary)?
  • Is the cylinder lock (virtually) flush with the fitting on the outside?
  • Is the security strike plate anchored in the wall?
  • Does the door have a rotary multi-point security lock?
  • Are there any additional locks or security latches (for old doors)?
  • Are the door panel and the hinges stable?

2. Key check

  • Have you or a family member ever lost a key?
  • Do you know whether this has happened to a previous tenant or previous owner?
  • Do you know how many keys to the front door are still in circulation?
  • Do you have a security card to order replacement keys?

3. All-around check

  • Do your neighbours or friends regularly check that everything is alright?
  • Is the letter box emptied regularly?
  • Are your valuables secured in the safe (or a bank)?
  • Are the other exterior doors (cellar) burglar-resistant too?
  • Are the cellar shafts protected with security gratings?
  • Are windows and French doors (patio) locked and secured?
  • Are the roller shutters protected against being pushed up?
  • Do your windows have burglar-resistant glazing?
  • Are any climbing aids (ladders) accessible anywhere on the premises?

Excellent security: The 3-step system for every requirement

VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH has developed a 3-star system in cooperation with the police that divides mechanical locking systems into three different security classes, and gives you a quick overview of the relevant security levels. Our DOM locking systems are of course classified and clearly marked in line with this system. We offer you a suitable locking cylinder for every security need. Decide yourself which mechanical system suits you best.
