    Is there a security standard for multi point locks?

    And would that cover the lock mechanism, or the cylinder, or both?

    What should I be looking out for?

    Thanks

    Thanks.

    What does your house insurance provider suggest?

    Insurers ask if you have multi point locking and that lock itself is up to standard. So to answer your question, no , they just want to know if you have it or not.

    Thanks. Surprising really. In the old days you needed to be BSI. Now multi pint = job done.

    Assuming you looking for a new door ask SBD (secure by design) or you can go a little further and ask for PAS 24 rated.
    To go event further:
    Possibly even checking its a 3* or Diamond rated cylinder and maybe dog bolts on the hinge side too

    Supplier has said that the door lock is from a German company called FUHR.

    But not sure if that is the multi point or the euro cylinder.
