Locksmiths and security professionals: How safe are your customers?

It’s home security month and a new study of the UK’s home security measures by Ironmongery Direct has been released in infographic format. For the entire locksmith and security industry, the results contained within are worth analysing, as they paint a promising picture for both sectors for many years to come.

The report studied the Office for National Statistics’ latest security release and found that there are 1,920 burglaries per day in the UK. This breaks down to 1.33 burglaries per minute! While this figure is down 71 per cent from similar statistics 20 years ago, the threat of burglary still illustrates the demand for good security measures in order to protect a homeowner.
