  • Replacing PVCU door locking mechanisms when your multipoint locking
    mechanism has failed or is faulty.

If your PVCU door multi point locking system is difficult to open or close, or if it has failed/jammed in the locked position we can help. We carry on board all are vans a large selection of the most common PVCU multi point locks, lock cases, handles and replacement cylinders.

  • Replacing locks and cylinders when you want your locks working off a
    new key or your lock is faulty.

A common fault with a uPVC lock is the cylinder clutch slipping and therefore not allowing the key to be removed unless the lock is unlocked. The cylinder can be re-set but it is not recommended.

PVCU door cylinders can be hard to replace as they come in various sizes and finishes.

If your cylinder protrudes from your handles more than 8mm it could be attacked resulting in the door being opened in seconds.

We carry virtually all sizes and finishes of both standard and high security registered cylinders on our vans, so we can replace your lock on our first visit.

  • Fitting higher security cylinders with a registered security key, these cylinders are also harder to drill open, pick open & bump open.

Not only are our high security cylinders harder to drill open, pick open and bump open than standard cylinders, they also come with a registered key system, this gives you control of who can get extra keys cut eliminating the threat of your cleaner, nanny, lodger, tenant, builder etc getting a key without your knowledge.

  • Fitting cylinders with a thumb turn on the inside when you have to comply with fire regulations.
  • Door opening service (non emergency and emergency) to gain entry if your door lock or mechanism is faulty or you have lost your keys.

We provide an emergency door opening service as well as a non emergency service. So whether you have a locked/jammed door, lost your keys or your handle has broken, we can help.

Checking The Operation Of Your PVCU Door

With the door open lock your door as if it was in the closed position. If it works smoothly when the door is open but when you shut the door it feels stiff lifting the handles or turning the key or will not lock, then you need to get the door looked at as soon as possible failure to get this looked at will result in the lock jamming in the locked position.

PVCU door and window locks should work smoothly
If your PVCU door or window lock isn’t working smoothly it may result in the lock failing in the locked position with the door shut.

uPVC lock handles come in various sizes styles and operations.

So the lock system determines the handle type.

Because of the construction of PVCU doors and windows it is very difficult to install any additional locks or secondary security.
