Avocet Hardware (UK) Ltd are designers and distributors of high security locks, architectural ironmongery and builders hardware products.

Avocet are a well established company based in Brighouse in West Yorkshire and operating from the site since 1989.


Avocet’s ABS snap-secure lock was the first of its kind in the UK to have both SS312 Diamond accreditation and a TS007 3-star rating, and is widely agreed to be the safest snap-secure lock available. West Yorkshire Police fitted it in over 10,000 homes in Leeds as part of a crime prevention programme in 2012, which resulted in a 35 per cent drop in burglaries in just one year.



Avocet is the security sponsor of the European Neighbourhood Watch Association (EUNWA).
