Many claim these are the best locks on the market to date, whilst we think they are probably the nicest looking locks, but Yale BS and ERA BS locks do not fall when comparing the level of security they all offer. They are insurance approved BS 3621 rim locks. Remember that if you do not have secure door, then no matter how secure the locks are, you will not be safe if the door can be kicked in.
The Banham L2000 only comes in a 60mm backset. Polished brass, satin brass, polished chrome and satin chrome finishes available and we will soon be able to offer split colours, for example brass cylinder (outside part of lock) with chrome finish.
Six pin drill resistant cylinder with two original keys and two gold cards, for future key duplication.
Kitemarked to BS 3621:2007.
Approved by secured by Design.
Maximum security key differs.
Exclusive to Banham coded key registration systems.
Matching in colour 10″ strike plate/keep with six screw holes
Auto deadlocking saw resistant 20mm steel bolt
Can be keyed alike to the Banham M2002 & M2003 BS3621 mortice deadlock.
So what we feel is that although Banham locks are secure, and nice looking locks, they are far too expensive compared to other similar security locks. The keys are expensive, and when it comes to emergency service some claim that Banham are not so quick to respond as other locksmiths companies do and able to manage and supply new replacement alternatives, due to the costs involved in stocking the Banham locks.
Having said that, of you have spare cash to spend, then Banham locks are probably suitable to any expensive and secure doors.
