Non-destructive entry to commercial buildings & premises
Non Destructive Entry (NDE) means entry past locks by means of manipulation (lock-picking) or bypassing. Without any physical impact to door, keep or locks.
It is policy at Abbey Locksmiths (unless at the request of the customer) to carry out NDE for all callouts. Whilst there are times that this may prove to be impractical it will be the decision of the consumer.
That’s not to say that destructive entry is as it sounds, DESTRUCTIVE, it just means that the lock itself can be destroyed, enabling entry and requiring a new lock to be fitted.
