UPVC Lock Repair & Replacement
UPVC door mechanisms are produced by a number of manufacturers and in many more variations and styles. However, the principle in the way they all work is pretty much the same. Firstly, it should be noted that these types of locks, known as multipoint locking mechanisms, are also sometimes found in wooden composite doors and not just UPVC. When mechanisms in composite doors go wrong in the closed and locked position, it can cause other specific problems.
If your lock has been damaged or broken, our expert locksmith in Slough can provide you with the lock repairs or lock replacement you need.
How Multipoint Locks Work
Multipoint locks generally operate in the same way regardless of the type or number of locking points. They can be simple rollers or large hooks and bolts or any combination. The most common is operated by lifting the handle which operates the locking points, then the whole system is locked into position with the turn of the key in the cylinder, commonly known as the barrel.
