Doors That We Repair

There are a lot of doors out there in the world, and you may not even know the type of door that you have. Here at Assist Locks in Brentford,  I am able to repair the following door locks:

UPVC Door Lock Repairs

One of the most popular lock types, UPVC door locks are typically placed on UPVC composite doors. When locked using a front door key, the multipoint locking mechanism locks them all at once.

Double Glazing Door Lock Repairs

Additionally, multipoint locking systems are used on double-glazed doors, which typically have a minimum of three locking points that all lock with the turn of a key.

Conservatory Door Lock Repairs

Multipoint locks are typically used to protect conservatories, giving your property ultimate security. You should be on the lookout for references to 3 point locking systems while speaking about multipoint locking methods so that you can avoid confusion.

Bi-Fold Door Lock Repairs

It’s best to send pictures of the lock in the first place because we can fix several types of Bi-Fold door locks. There are two locking systems that can be used with bi-fold doors: multipoint locks and eight-point locks. One of the aforementioned systems will be present in your bi-fold doors, depending on where you bought them. You can contact our team of local Brentford locksmiths for help if you are unsure of the sort of lock that is on your bi-fold door.

Wooden Door Lock Repairs

Wooden doors tend to have a ‘rim nightlatch’ system, otherwise known as a ‘Yale’ lock, or a mortice deadlock mechanism. There is also something called ‘fringe casing’ that are used when older wooden doors are being fitted, as they are usually much bigger than the standard modern door frame.

Timber Door Lock Repairs

There are a few common lock types that are used on timber doors, and they include mortice locks, nightlatch locks, tubular latch, deadlocks, or sash locks. Sometimes, rebate conversion kits can be needed for door locks and keeps, and must be fitted into ‘rebated’ edges of timber doors. Our team can help you figure out the kind of lock that you have on your timber door.

French Door Lock Repairs

Deadbolt locking mechanisms, either double-sided or one-sided half deadbolt locks, are typically used on French doors. French doors are often more secure than sliding doors, but if they are installed incorrectly, they can be quite simple to break through.

Top and bottom key operated locks, the most popular type, central rail key operated locks, and multipoint locking systems are all possible lock configurations for patio doors.
