Learn more about the Foundation for Quality Facade Construction

The Building Quality Foundation (SKG) is an organization that tests, inspects and ultimately certifies locks with a star rating.

Manufacturers of hardware have their locks tested, certified and approved by SKG. All locks are tested on standard quality windows and doors. Locks are retested over time to see if they still meet requirements. In fact, burglars are inventing more and more ways to get in even faster.

How does the SKG test locks?
When testing locks, the SKG does everything that a burglar might also do. Tools commonly used by burglars are used. With hammers, screwdrivers and crowbars, the SKG goes to work. The purpose of this is to see how many minutes the lock can withstand burglary.

The seal then issues three different ratings: 1, 2 or 3 SKG stars.

The significance of SKG 3 locks

Locks are tested by the SKG using a star system. The number of stars indicates how burglar-resistant a lock is. The more stars, the stronger and more secure the lock is.

SKG starsSKG 1 star: standard burglar resistance
An SKG lock with 1 star is non-independent burglar proof. This means that these locks are placed with one other equivalent or stronger SKG lock. A 1-star SKG lock can withstand about 3 minutes of burglary if the burglar uses simple tools, such as a crowbar or screwdriver.

SKG 2 stars: heavy burglar resistance
Locks with 2 stars can withstand 3 minutes of burglary if the burglar applies an extensive tool kit.

From two stars up, locks can be placed independently.

SKG 3 stars: extra heavy burglar resistance
Locks with 3 stars keep burglars out for 5 minutes when using heavy tools.

Note that an average break-in takes 30 seconds. So 3 to 5 minutes is a very long time for a burglar, even though it may sound like a very short time to you now

Hi! Yesterday I slammed the door in the evening and left the key inside. I called and ordered this master. Then I read the reviews here and was surprised how many negative reviews there are) I called them and said that I didn’t want to fall into their trap if they tried to scam me. Fortunately for me, there was no deception, everything was very adequate, the master was very pleasant and polite. Very nice price for services. Everything was done quickly and without damage. When I asked why there were so many negative reviews here, he replied that he had just bought this company and is building a reputation. Don't be afraid to reach out to these guys. Everything was very clear and professional on their part. I recommend!

The cost of drilling the lock was extremely high. I paid 220 euros, excluding taxes, just for a hole in the lock. I didn't even request a new lock, but if I had, it would have cost even more. The service was quick, with the technician arriving at my home within 40 minutes. They managed to open the door without damaging the frame, only the lock. The technician was also friendly, which is why I am giving them a higher rating. However, I still feel that 220 euros for drilling a lock is excessive, even for a company. It would have been more reasonable if the cost included a lock replacement.

Sleutel aan de binnenkant van de deur laten zitten, stom! Ze stonden gelukkig zelfs op zondag binnen 20 minuten voor de deur en Jeffrey maakte onze deur snel en zonder schade open. Super blij mee, ik zou ze zeker weer bellen.
