Even the smallest problems with UPVC door locks should not be ignored. When you have to jiggle the key to unlock the door, it means there's a problem with the key blade or the lock cylinder. Bent, worn and inaccurately cut keys should be replaced timely. The same is true for faulty cylinders which are worn or broken. If the handle is difficult to lift, the multipoint locking mechanism has most likely failed and should be changed. Is there a need for replacing the lock if one of the keys has been lost? If the cylinder can be rekeyed and is in good working condition, this will be sufficient for fixing the problem. The rekeyed lock will require new keys, of course. When the cylinder can’t be rekeyed, it should be changed. There is no need for replacing the locking mechanism too.
It’s quite common for a lock to malfunction because of a problem with the door itself. Damaged and loose rubber can jam the bolt and prevent locking or unlocking. Changing it will eliminate the problem. When a hinge is not properly set, the door will be misaligned and the bolt won’t move smoothly into the strike receiver. With accurate adjustment, things will go back to normal. Loose and rusty hinges require timely repair. Heavily damaged and broken ones should be replaced right away. Cracks, splits and chips of different sizes can be successfully repaired. However, when you have a broken door panel or frame, the component has to be replaced.Back To Our Services
