UPVC is a type of rigid PVC (polyvinyl chloride), with the ‘u’ standing for ‘unplasticized’, which is what makes it less flexible and more rigid. It is a low-maintenance material available in a range of colours and finishes, thus often used as a substitute for painted wood.
Locks and handles for UPVC doors usually contain multi-point locks. These types of doors often make use of euro cylinder locks. Additional security is usually provided with a SS312 Diamond Approved Cylinder or TS007 3 Star.
Pin tumbler locks are typically found in a cylinder that can be easily unscrewed by a professional locksmith for rekeying. It can be changed without altering the bolt-work hardware, meaning replacing and repairing these types of locks is less of a hassle for you.
Another advantage of UPVC locks is that is normally possible to acquire cylinders in different formats, which can then be used with the same kind of key. This enables the user to have keyed-alike, and master-keyed systems that include a large range of different types of lock, such as night-latches, deadbolts and roller door locks.
If you have a lock that was fitted prior to 2009, it is advisable to replace these locks for the necessary security. You can rest assured that we are Checkatrade approved, and specialists in UPVC locks and handles.
