uPVC Multi-Point Lock Repairs in Nottingham

uPVC Multi-Point Lock Repairs Nottingham

uPVC and composite doors will typically house a multi-point locking mechanism, with three or more locking points that span the entire height of the door. As opposed to the traditional locking solutions of the past, the multi-point locking mechanisms are designed to lock the top, middle and bottom of the door into the frame. It is claimed that this type of locking solution protects against energy wastage and is more efficient for reducing excessive noise. The multi-point locking mechanisms on most uPVC and composite doors will be operated by lift lever handles and a euro profile cylinder, which could either operate a key both sides, or a thumb turn on the inside of the door.

Newer and more high-end composite doors may house automatic multi-point locking mechanisms without lift lever handles. A helpful way of thinking about the automatic mechanisms, is to imagine them as a fusion-hybrid of the traditional Yale night latch and Chubb mortice locks of the past; the obvious difference being, the multi-point nature of the lock. These multi-point locks operate by essentially throwing the latch bolts of the mechanism as soon as the door is closed, which renders the door deadlocked.
