uPVC Lock Repairs
The uPVC door locks and mechanisms are made by different manufacturers from different parts of the world. However, despite the many different variants and designs of the uPVC locks and mechanism, the same essential principle is applied in their functionality. At Worcester Locksmith, we are familiar with the different variants and designs of the uPVC locks and mechanisms as well as their functional principle.
uPVC doors use a kind of lock known as a “multi-point locking mechanism” that is not unique to it alone. This multi-point locking mechanism is sometimes used on wooden composite doors. It is normal for other issues to arise when this device malfunctions in the closed and locked position. There are usually signs that notify you when the system is about to malfunction.
No matter what the problem might be with your uPVC lock and mechanism, Worcester Locksmith has the skill and expertise to handle the situation. We have a wide range of the most common replacement products in our inventory and we usually solve most problems we encounter in one visit. In the event that we cannot resolve the problem in one visit, we will install a temporary lock in the door, so you can use it pending when a replacement lock is acquired.

It is dependent on what type of lock you want and how many locks are needed. For example, if you have two doors that need new handles and both use keys, it will usually come in at around £100-£170 per door, including adding a keyhole for each handle. If there’s one door with a deadbolt set that requires four holes drilled into the frame – including replacing cabinet hinges or replacing some existing screws in your current hardware – we’re looking at roughly £250 because more work needs to be done than just installing a simple knob.
