UNION supports National Home Security Month 2019

UNION is supporting National Home Security Month (NHSM) 2019, an annual campaign raising awareness of home security and the importance of taking precautions to protect families, property and belongings.

The campaign runs throughout October, coinciding with the start of autumn when the nights start to draw in and the clocks go back an hour. The nationwide initiative was launched by UNION’s sister brand Yale.

Burglaries are more likely to involve forced entry into unoccupied houses during the autumn and winter months. Yet many still admit to having no security precautions at home, leaving their property and loved ones at risk.

To tackle this, NHSM was set-up to offer seasonal tips and advice. The initiative highlights a different element of home security during each week of the campaign, so homeowners can take steps to minimise the risk of being targeted by burglars.

Eryl Jones, Managing Director for ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware & Access Control Group said: 
“We are delighted to be sponsoring NHSM for the sixth year running. The campaign is a highlight in the calendar year for the security industry, offering UNION a fantastic platform to talk about issues such as product testing, quality control and our latest solutions to locksmiths, installers and stockists.
“UNION supplies a compliant range of solutions for the residential sector, including the renowned StrongBOLT, which meets important standards such as BS 3621. This provides a vital benchmark for insurance companies to measure the robustness of door locks and help homeowners ensure their properties remain secure.”

UNION has contributed a blog to the NHSM website, discussing what BS 3621 means for homeowners. Have you checked if your lock is BS 3621 compliant? Read more on the importance of BS 3621 here:
