Use With Care
We know how easy it is to slam a door, however, what you may not realise is that over time it can cause significant damage to the multi-point mechanism. The damage can become so severe that you may end up having to completely replace the hardware. We advise avoiding slamming any multi-point system entrance as much as possible to maintain longevity and ensure the mechanism remains intact.
Additional Securing Mechanisms
There are many options that you can consider to enhance the security of the multi-point mechanism. These include chains, sash jammers, dog bolts to name a few. Our team is available to discuss your options and what you could consider. If you are particularly worried about intruders, they can provide an additional hurdle and help secure ??UPVC doors from any forced entry attempts.
Even though the mechanisms of UPVC provide superior security than that of the average options. If you are looking to upgrade what you have, another option you could consider is a UPVC door barrel replacement with an anti-snap euro cylinder. This option will prevent any lock snapping offering better security than the typical euro cylinder. It will also mean that it cannot be picked.
As with any product, they can develop faults, and you may notice some changes that were prior not noticeable. Stiffness, rattling noises, or any form of difficulty of use should be checked out. Even if you can still secure your entranceways, that nagging feeling of something is not quite right could still be on your mind.
