UPVC and Composite Door Locksmith
UPVC and Composite doors are found on most houses and offices these days. More hardy to weather damage than traditional wooden doors, they are nonetheless prone to breaking if not regularly serviced.
With modern UPVC and Composite doors comes much more complicated multi-point and high security locking mechanisms, unlike older wood doors with traditional cylinder and mortice style locks, they are usually always equipped with locking systems that can become misaligned. If not serviced correctly, UPVC and Composite doors can, if a problem is left, become so bad it leads to issues with you even being able to close the door and lock it.
Once you suspect a UPVC or Composite door is becoming problematic to close and lock or you are aware of any misalignment, its important that you get a professional out to check it over and realign it all so it works properly.
Same Day UPVC Door Repairs
If your locking mechanism is stiff or grating or will not lock at all, its extremely important to have it checked over, the locking system in these doors are usually gear driven and the gears are usually cast alloy, if there is stiffness and you keep trying to use the lock which is maladjusted this can cause the gear teeth to shear off which will lead to the total breakdown of the gear train and will cause you to have a door that cannot be locked.
Once your door cannot be locked or will not close, this is usually where a customer will call me in a panic. Leaving it this late is usually very expensive and much more so than it would have been if the customer had of called me out to adjust the door earlier.
Both Composite and UPVC doors usually have the same locking systems in these days and even some wooden doors can be fitted with them, usually along with a cored construction faced with timber. These style of doors can be identified by the fact they will have a locking mechanism with multiple hooks and bolts that are activated when the handle is pulled up. These hooks and bolts will lock into the door frame and wall for additional security.
Important Regular Servicing
This complicated mechanism is all turned by a single key using a cylinder lock. As you can imagine its a complicated system that needs regular servicing as its only the pressure of turning the key that moves it.
