UPVC Door Locks

UPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) is a chemically resistant material that is rigid and does not erode over time. This means that it is a secure and reliable material for doors and locks. UPVC is sometimes used for window frames, as it is resistant to weather corrosion, oxidation and sunlight. Popular manufacturers of UPVC locks include Era, Maco and Winkhaus. You can request for me to install locks from your preferred supplier, although I source all my locks from reputable brands. My UPVC lock installation service is particularly popular for patio doors and front doors on both residential and commercial properties. Additionally, my selection of UPVC lock systems includes multipoint locks, hookbolt systems and mechanical digital locks.

Do I Need A Locksmith?

Many people are under the impression that they only need a locksmith if their locks are broken or they have been burgled. However there are many other reasons you may need my locksmith services, such as:

  • You have moved into a new house and the previous owners may still have a key
  • Your garage locks are wearing down and your car is not secure
  • If you have locked yourself out and the keys are inside the house
  • You have lost your keys or they have snapped in the lock and become stuck
  • If you have forgotten the combination to your mechanical digital locking system
  • Your lock is rusted and weak
  • You need a safe installing or you are locked out of your safe
  • If you wish to improve your security systems to protect your furniture, electronics and belongings

Different Types Of Lock

There are many types of locks on the market that all function in different ways. It can be difficult to decide which one will be the most secure and suitable for your door, whether it is a steel, wood or fibreglass door. There are four main types of lock, the five-lever mortice deadlock, the multi-point locking system, nightlatches and key operated window locks. As a popular choice for UPVC doors, multipoint locking systems have at least 3 locking points, providing protection against burglary. Although they may require the installation of a 5-pin locking cylinder for insurance purposes.

Nightlatches are not morticed into the door. This means they are a less secure type of locking system, and they are most effective as an additional lock as well as your morticed lock. Morticed deadlocks are most secure when they have more levers installed, which is why the 5-lever mortice deadlock is one of the most popular types of lock on the market.
