uPVC & ALUMINUM LOCK REPLACEMENT
The majority of properties now have uPVC doors and windows fitted for their energy efficiency and low maintenance benefits.
Our locksmiths are specialists in uPVC door and window locks. Many people are finding that it is necessary to upgrade their locks to meet the requirements of their insurance policy. The Lock Genie can supply and fit multi-point locks and Euro-cylinder locks to ensure that doors and windows are safe and secure. The multi-point locking system can be fitted to uPVC doors including patio doors and French doors to provide the highest level of security for your peace of mind.
If you have recently moved, we recommend that you change the locks as it is highly likely that there will be keys to the existing locks still in circulation.
uPVC DOOR AND WINDOW LOCKS
We stock all sizes and finishes of 40 Euro cylinder and oval locks, and most handle sets for uPVC doors, of which there are many. We can also repair failed locking mechanisms on uPVC doors and windows and stock many locking mechanisms to be able to complete most of these jobs in one visit.
These are the doors many builders install these days that are of timber construction with a metal skin. Most of the time these will incorporate a locking mechanism similar to uPVC doors so, as above, we stock most handle sets, 40/40 Euro cylinders (also known as anti-snap locks) and locking mechanisms to be able to complete most jobs in one visit. These doors can also use ‘Yale’ nightlatch locks and mortice locks similar to wooden doors and we stock many of these locks too.
AlUMINIUM DOOR AND WINDOW LOCK SPECIALIST
Aluminium doors and windows are popular in commercial and public buildings like schools and offices due to the strength of the frame that enables a slim frame and larger glass surface area. In addition they are extremely durable and offer great design flexibility in terms of the range of colours available and the large designs that can be manufactured. This means that they are becoming increasingly popular on residential properties.
Aluminium doors and windows require a narrower latch type, as the frame is slimmer than that of uPVC. The Lock Genie are specialists in the supply and fitting of locks that are specifically designed for aluminium doors and windows including:
- Multi-point locks
- Euro cylinder locks
- Deadlocks / deadlatch
