Britons spent a whopping £16bn on their gardens during lockdown according to a study of 2,000 people, commissioned by STIHL.
The typical British garden is now home to fire-pits (12%), sofas (11%), summer houses (11%) and rugs (5%), with 1 in 20 homeowners also buying either a hot tub, pizza oven or exercise equipment too.
This brings the average price of garden possessions in the UK to an average of £1,262 per home – equivalent to £28.5 billion nationally – according to MoneySuperMarket.
No wonder more and more homeowners are now searching for ways to protect their garden investments. Especially as gardens are often a burglar’s first point of access to a property, so it makes sense for homeowners to make it as difficult as possible for them to access their property.
Our 4400 series of locks have all been designed to be fitted onto wooden and timber garden gates, so you can find the perfect lock to secure your garden and your valuables. Let’s look at some of their key features so you can choose the right lock for you.
BL4402 ECP – designed with a 28mm ali latch for narrow stile gates (such as a panelled door or gates with varying depths of wood thickness) where a full length mortice lock is too long.
BL4409 & BL4409 ECP – recently updated with a new knob turn handle, this is one of our most popular garden gate locks. It also comes with a holdback function, which is ideal if you need to leave the gate open for a period of time. Available with our unique Easicode Pro function and without.
BL4441 & BL4441 ECP – where you want to control access in and out of your garden (perhaps to stop children leaving unsupervised), this lock has back to back keypads, which require a code to be entered each time it is used. Also designed for thicker gates up to 80mm.
Where you see the code ‘ECP’ after one of our lock numbers, this means you can choose to buy this lock with our unique Easicode Pro functionality. This means you can easily change the code for the keypads without removing the locks from the gate or door.
Locks designated with ‘MG’ are Borg Locks’ robust Marine Grade Pro 2 black finish. This gives the lock added UV protection as well as proven resistance from corrosion by harsh elements, making it perfect for all external uses, such as garden gates.
