In the recent past, when the first multi-locking systems were put on the market, they were not perfected and were soon rendered inferior products. Shortly thereafter, more effective models supplanted the previous ones, and now with an influx of the latest hook locks and strikes, strikers can efficiently run the entire length of the door. Strikers are now used to replace the earlier, defective models before they break. Insurance companies have now caught on and are up-to-speed on the newest locking mechanisms on the UPVC doors. It is now quite easy to diagnose the problem regarding the UPVC door: if it is nearly impossible to lock your door while it remains closed, but it is possible when the door is open, then quite simply the door needs to be realigned.

UPVC doors are durable, strong, and heavy, and so oftentimes they fall or droop away from their respective hinges. This drooping causes the mechanism to be far too low for its responder guides. If this should occur, the hinges will need to be readjusted, so that the door can be fitted into its proper place. Normally, this procedure is known as the heel and toe technique, and it refers to the adjustment of the crooked door when it falls from its original alignment. This is a rather difficult job, and it requires more than simply adjusting the hinge mechanism, it involves the proper alignment—the proper adjustment so to speak.

Our services range from simple lock replacements to the more complex security systems. Sometimes just creating new keys for existing locks is requested, but there are times when the customer has moved many places and therefore requires new locks and keys.
