What’s wrong with the device actually? If it’s easy to turn the key, but impossible to unlock the door with it, the bolt is most likely jammed. It has to be released with care and repaired. Adjusting the strike receiver and tightening its screws will help to eliminate the problem completely. What if you can’t turn the key inside the lock at all? The Euro cylinder must have failed. Sometimes, it can be fixed and adjusted, but if it’s broken, it has to be replaced. UPVC door locks offer the highest level of security when they are equipped with an anti-snap cylinder. When it isn’t possible to use the handle for closing the door, the locking mechanism is most probably faulty. Replacing it with a more secure one will not only solve the problem, but give you even better protection.
Cracks on the panel and frame shouldn’t be tolerated, but fixed immediately. The same is true for dents, chips and splits. The frame is more likely to break, compared to the door. If this happens, it has to be replaced with the exact same one to ensure proper closing and locking. Loose rubber is a less serious, but much more common problem. Replacing it will allow the door to fit into the frame properly once again. When the door and frame are misaligned, the fix involves adjusting the hinges. Most modern units are equipped with flag hinges which offer multiple door adjustment options. With careful work and constant testing, the door will be aligned perfectly in the end.Back To Our Services
