Multi-point UPVC Lock repairs Norfolk & Suffolk
Are your handles getting tighter to lift? or the key harder to turn? Then you require a Upvc door doctor!
This can be the first sign of a failing multi-point lock, but this doesn't always mean that the actual lock has failed, More often than not this can be a sign of a poorly aligned door which can be caused by extremely hot or cold weather.
If this is caught early enough before the multi-point lock becomes damaged this can be relatively easily remedied by making a few slight adjustments to the door to re-align the lock to the keep (the part on the frame that the door locks into), Fort Cox Locksmiths & Access Control can have your multi-point lock operating like new once more at only a fraction of the cost of a new multi-point locking system .
