Realignment ensures that your uPVC door continues to work smoothly.
UPVC door realignment may need to be looked at shortly after installation. The installers will align the door and locking mechanism to the frame and keeps, facilitating smooth closure and locking of the door. What most people are not made aware of at the time of installation (by the installers), is that these doors should be regularly checked for alignment and the locking mechanism should be kept lubricated.
When the misalignment reaches an excessive stage, wear to the central gearbox becomes evident, e.g. the handles become loose and floppy (most people assume that the spring has strained in the handles at this stage).
All of this will result in one of the following three scenarios:
- The door is open and will not physically close
- The door will close but it will be impossible to lift the handles and lock the door
- The door is locked or unlocked closed but will not open
If confronted with any of the scenarios above, then Williams Locksmith Bristol have the expertise, experience, tools, spares and techniques to remedy most problems. We carry an extensive stock of MPL (multi point locking mechanisms) and central gearbox cases along with various keeps and strikes, that enables us to offer a service to fully overhaul Upvc doors and render them usable and as secure as when they were first installed.
