One point locking systems
UPVC doors older than 10 years tend to only have a one point locking system and not a multipoint locking system. The single point locking system does not have to additional claw hooks at the bottom and top the clamp into the frame when the door is locked. Doors with single point locking systems are most vulnerable crowbar attacks and can also be easily kicked in.
Multipoint locking systems
All the latest doors come with multipoint locking systems called a claw hook locking system. The claw hook system has 3 to 5 claws that clamp in to the door fame when the door is locked.
It is way better to have a multiple claw hook locking system on your doors because the claw freeze the door in place, from top to bottom this adds extra reinforcement when the door is locked
