UPVC Door LocksBack To Our Services
Your UPVC door locks are being used several times each day if something goes wrong with them, the security of your entire property will be compromised. That is why issues involving locks should always be resolved in the fastest possible manner.
When the key cannot get into the keyway or gets stuck inside, it is a clear sign of trouble. This is because the cylinder is either worn or broken. The solution involves setting a new cylinder that fits the lockset and has greater strength and durability. If there is a stuck bolt, hook or another type of latch, the issue is probably with the locking mechanism. Sometimes, it can be adjusted and lubricated to work smoothly, but in other cases, lock replacement is the only way to resolve the problem.
UPVC Lock Change
There are three cases, when a lock has to be replaced with a new one. The first one is when the damage is beyond repair. This step is also taken when all the components of the device are already extensively worn. If the lockset has become outdated, it should be changed. This is important even if it works well since the level of security should never drop below the optimum. It is best if the new lock is more advanced as well as stronger and more durable compared to the old one.
Sometimes, the latches do not enter the strike receiver not because the locking mechanism is damaged, but because the door's alignment is off. This is usually due to loose or broken hinges. The issue can be resolved with repair or replacement of these hardware components respectively. Less often, the weather seals are to blame for improper closing. Damaged and worn seals require immediate replacement.
