UPVC Door LocksBack To Our Services
Don’t let any problems with your UPVC door locks cause you great inconvenience and compromise the security of your home or office. Take action to deal with them as soon as you notice the troubling signs.
When you can’t insert the key or simply turn it, it means the cylinder has failed or got greatly worn and should be changed. Usually, there are early signs of trouble, like the lock becomes sticky before failing completely. If the keys are difficult to turn, the problem could be with them. A close inspection will reveal the actual cause of the problem. Bent, chipped and worn keys should be replaced timely just like faulty, broken and worn cylinders. If the key turns fine, but the bolt doesn’t extend, the locking mechanism should be fixed or replaced.
Broken UPVC Door
This problem requires immediate solution. If the cylinder’s snapped, it has to be replaced. If the handle or locking mechanism is broken, a new one must be installed. Less often, the problem is due to bent, worn or broken hinges. While bent hinges can be repaired, worn and broken ones require replacement right away. A broken frame should be fixed or changed depending on how bad the damage is. Even big chips and splits can usually be repaired.
Locks Mechanisms and Replacement
Each lockset consists of two components - a cylinder and a multipoint locking mechanism. If any of these components fails or gets greatly damaged, worn or broken, it has to be replaced. Similarly, outdated parts should be replaced with new ones meeting the current British Standards timely. The ideal cylinder is resistant to snapping, picking, drilling and other break-in techniques. The lock installation process involves setting the multipoint mechanism and the strike receiver and then fitting the cylinder.
