Danum Locksmiths have been repairing and replacing the locking strips on uPVC doors since 1980. If you can not now open your door, this does mean a new door. If you go to a double glazing installer he will no doubt tell you parts are not available anymore and you need a new door. This is wrong, we have vast stocks of all types of locking mechanism’s fitted in the Doncaster area. Even if the parts are now out of stock, we will be able to fit an upgraded version. This will add to your home security.
On the locking strip (called a multi-point lock) there is usually a brand name, this will most likely be one of the following:
There are others but these are the most common lock types found in Doncaster.
Sliding patio and tilt and slide doors can also be looked at by Danum Locksmiths. If the locking element has failed we can help out in this repair. The doors run on wheels at the bottom. These can wear and make the door difficult to slide across. Let Danum Locksmiths quote to replace the wheels, it will probably save you cash by not having to replace the whole door.
Danum Locksmiths is also able to repair faulty windows. If the hinges have buckled or seized, these can be replaced. Handles can be swapped at reasonable prices. The locking part called the espagnolette is also replaceable.
