What is a Blocker Plate and how can it be used to protect your commercial property?
Warehouse and commercial premises are often targeted by burglars because they know such premises are left empty during the night and possibly on weekends too. So business owners must protect their property to reduce the risk of being targeted.
Most businesses have already installed CCTV, security doors and heavy-duty locks, but there are more things business owners can do to protect themselves. Adding a Blocker Plate to your security mix will improve your security greatly reducing the risk of a burglar being able to gain access to your property.
What are Blocker Plates?
Like all the best ideas, a Blocker Plate is a simple concept to understand. Essentially it’s a high-tensile steel plate which is used to protect the latch or locking mechanism on external doors. This prevents intruders from being able to force the latch or lock to gain access to the building.
A Blocker Plate is a simple idea which is cost-effective to install and greatly increases the protection of your door locks and latches. For this reason, we recommend that Blocker Plates are installed to protect all external doors since these are the weakest point of entry and the place where intruders will most likely try to gain access.
Will a Blocker Plate make my building feel fortified?
A Blocker Plate will not make your building feel foreboding or fortified like other security measures such as window grilles and security fencing. It can be installed discreetly on almost any external door so that your staff and customers will barely even notice it has been fitted.
Check out the two images below. The door on the left has no Blocker Plate fitted while the one on the right has a Blocker Plate installed. You’ve probably seen Blocker Plates before and not even noticed. But it’s there and it does the job of protecting your locks from being forced.
How is Blocker Plate installed?
A Blocker Plate can be installed on almost any type of inward or outward opening doors, but the product is usually installed on outward opening external doors. To ensure the strength and integrity of the door is not compromised during fitting we recommend that a Master Locksmith is used to install the product.
The product is available in a range of shapes and sizes and can be fitted to all types of door including fire doors, fire exit doors, solid core doors and aluminium doors. The plates themselves also have different notches which allow them to be fitted to any frame shape.
A Blocker Plate can usually be fitted in less than an hour and the simplicity of the product ensures that external doors can be protected at relatively low cost compared to other security measures such as CCTV, window grilles and burglar alarms. A Blocker Plate provides the best value for money compared to other security products.

Polite and professional
We just had young Tyler Doyle here working on our system today. He not only resolved the issues that we were having but he did so with such a polite and professional manner. Where many other would have given up or come back another day, Tyler persevered and got it done. I am so very thankful and wanted to let you know what an asset to your team you have there.
Prompt attention, excellent service
Thank you for repairing my mother’s car ignition today. Your prompt attention and excellent service was greatly appreciated. I will certainly be recommending Assured Locksmiths to all my family and friends. Thanks.
The politest and cleanest workmen I’ve had interactions with!
I have had the same 2 workmen in the office, over the past 2 days, installing locks on cupboards. Not only were they the politest workmen I’ve had interactions with, they are also the cleanest! They took a lot of care to put all the files back where they found them and made sure the floor was clean as well. Wonderful.
Saved The Day
Saved the day after a horror experience with a broken car ignition lock cylinder. Fixed it early the next day after ringing me with a quote and supplied a new Commodore key at my request. Really impressed with the outcome, price, service, communication and experience overall .
Highly recommended. Thanks!!!!!

IT Basecamp Master Key System
IT Basecamp a specialist IT company asked us to convert their offices to a registered master key system. They were setup with 4 different keys for different staff that have had access to different areas of the office. Brad says we went from 5 keys for our office to open all sorts of doors down to one! Awesome
