YEOVIL, England, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation is already putting safety first with sales of security products more than doubling over the last two weeks, and Screwfix offers a wide selection to meet the needs of its safety conscious customers.

Catering for both commercial and domestic environments, the leading multi-channel supplier offers an impressive range of security products, including best-selling electronic safe and security light lines, which are all showcased in Screwfix's latest 'tradesman's bible', Catalogue 103.

Avoid giving burglars windows of opportunity:

Keeping spare keys hidden in plant pots or under doormats no longer cuts it in the security stakes so this wall-mounted Masterlock Combination Key Safe, which holds up to five house keys, is just the job if you forget yours and don't fancy being left out in the cold. The Squire All-Weather Padlock, made from solid steel, is also robust enough to withstand a battle against the elements or any unwanted visitors.

The comprehensive Honeywell Wired Alarm Kit is another ideal addition to the security-savvy home. The set includes a siren, dummy siren, cable, control panel and remote keypad, and is ideal for use in two separate rooms with the possibility of adding up to 12 different devices.

The Codelock Push Button Lock is a must-have for any small business that makes security a top priority. This innovative lock, with 'hold open' and 'non hold open' functions, lends itself to regular deliveries, stock taking and doors that have more than one user, making it a great gadget for when people are always on the move.

Making light work of winter on site:

When it comes to safety on site, Screwfix's extensive range of lighting equipment is dedicated to shedding a bit of light on the situation inside and out, so tradesmen can keep on working even after the sun goes down. The Double Tripod, Portable Work Light 120W and Portable Site Light 400W are ideal for use in small spaces and tight corners, and the inclusion of Defender products in the range also offers workers energy efficient lights inside and out.

When energy is running low or winter power cuts are causing havoc with supply, Screwfix's range of generators can be relied upon to provide an extra boost. The 900W Inverter Generator is also great for powering laptops and charging phones, so your electrical devices will keep going as long as you can.

John Mewett, marketing director at Screwfix, comments: "At this time of year we know how important it is to stay safe. Dark nights and unpredictable weather conditions mean people's minds are turning to staying safe both at home and on site. With our extended range of seasonal security products we are confident that we can provide everything our customers need to stay safe this winter."
