It is a fact that most people take their UPVC door locks for granted. However, even if the slightest problem occurs, it can affect the security of the entire premises. That is why any issue needs to be taken care of as fast as possible. Count on our team if you come across any of the following issues.
Quite often the issue is not with the lock itself, but with the door. When the door doesn't close all the way, the issue may lie with the strike receiver. It can be loose and misaligned. It is also possible for a torn seal to prevent normal closing. These problems are resolved with careful repair. When necessary, the receiver and the seals are replaced. Damaged frame and panels can also pose a risk on security. The good news is that even deep cracks, chips and holes can all be fixed without replacing the entire door.
It is easy to recognise when the issue is with the lock itself. It might be impossible to insert the key into the keyway, or hard to turn in either direction if it got in. In this case, the issue is with the cylinder. If repair, cleaning and lubrication do not help, it has to be replaced. The problem can also be with the locking mechanism. If the bolt is stuck, it can be released with appropriate repair. However, when the mechanism is broken, the lockset has to be replaced with a new one.
When the door does not fit the frame, the problem is typically with the hinges which have probably gotten loose. They have to be fixed and adjusted so that perfect alignment between the door and the frame is achieved. If the hinges are severely damaged or broken, they have to be replaced. This will allow for perfect door adjustment and safe and effective operation for a long time to come.
