UPVC Door Cylinders:

Door cylinders are the part of the door that you would put your key into which locks and unlocks the internal mechanism. There are many instances where you would need to change these cylinders. The first being if you ever decide to move property. When moving house you always want to change the locks as you have no idea who may still have keys to your new home. This then gives you a sense of security knowing you have new locks on all of your doors and no one has unwanted access.

Secondly many people do not know that most UPVC doors come out of the factory and onto your house with just standard security cylinders which are surprisingly easy to break into. This is why we offer high security options which have four security designs to prevent burglars from easily breaking in. Click here to learn more about high security door cylinders.

UPVC Door Hinges

One big issue that tends to occur with the hinges on your door is when for example your getting your shopping from the car and you leave your front door open so you can easily get in and out. next thing you know a gust of wind comes along and blows your door open cracking your hinges and taking the door out of alignment. If left unrepaired this can then cause issues with your internal locking system as talked about in the paragraph about UPVC Door Mechanisms above. But don't worry we can repair and services the full door to ensure that everything is still in working condition and is closing smoothly.

UPVC Door Handles

Like everything in the industry there is no such thing as a standard door handle, each internal locking mechanism has different dimensions that can suit different handles. Meaning you cant buy any old handle off the internet as more then likely it is not going to suit the mechanism on your door.

The main issue with door handles is the washer that holds the lever on the handle can perrish, leaving you with a rattly handle or you locking down at a leaver in your hand as you've tried to pull the door open with the handle. if this does happen we can come out, find which handle is required and replace it for you. 

However, a lot of the time when a handle breaks it can also be due to the internal locking system being stiff causing you to have to put more pressure on the handle which is why the handle begins to wear down, so just be aware that it may not just be a handle that it is the issue.
