A standard rim latch on its own is not sufficient. The door should also be fitted preferably with a 5 lever mortice deadlock, though insurance companies will accept a rim automatic deadlock; It would be ideal if both were to British Standard or the equivalent European Standard requirements.
Quality locks are only as strong as the doors and frames to which they are attached. Ensure that the frame is sound and the door suitable for external use, for instance, a wooden hollow core door would not be suitable. It should be of substantial construction, at least 44mm thick to support the mortice lock and hung on three strong 100mm (4") hinges. The rim latch and the mortice should be fitted 45 to 60cm (18-24") apart. In the door itself recessed or decorative panels should be a minimum of 9mm (1/3") thick. For an apartment, in a block of flats or a house, it would be advisable to fit a solid core door.
Consider fitting a London Bar (metal strip on frame side) to support the strike box, this would strengthen the frame side considerably, or Birmingham bar to support the frame on the hinge side.
Timber frames should be sound and secure, it is not very good practise to fit a heavy door to an insufficient frame.
Doors with glazed panels are inherently less secure than solid doors, hence the need for a deadlock, or a British Standard Night Latch, which can be locked from the inside. Consider replacing ordinary or toughened glass panels with laminated glass - two pieces of glass bonded together with a sheet of laminate - as they offer much greater resistance to attack.
Ideal locks to fit to your Front Door would be the above locks, these locks are British Standard locks, with another version of these locks, which can be fitted to Communal Front Doors, which are Insurance approved.
Fitted with a purpose made London Bar, they make ideal locks, and can be passed onto the same key, (one key will open both).
