UPVC Doors & Windows
in Hornchurch


Most UPVC doors are fitted with a multi-point locking system. With this type of locking system, when you lift the handle and turn the key the door will lock at several different points. Most insurance companies now insist on a cylinder lock with at least 5 pins. If the euro lock cylinder on your upvc door is broken we can change it or upgrade it to 3 Star TS007 cylinder. This high security lock can prevent ‘cylinder snapping’ which is becoming more and more common in Colchester.

UPVC doors may develop faults for a variety of reasons. When they do, they become a security risk to your home. Thankfully they are usually inexpensive and fast to fix, typically sorted in one visit.

At TMB Locksmiths we stock a wide variety of multi-point locking mechanisms for UPVC doors and window repair. We know the importance of good quality and will only ever install branded locks that we know are tried, tested and up to the job.

Most uPVC external doors are secured by one of the following types of lock:


TMB Locksmiths are fully qualified to work with UPVC and composite door locks. Our locksmiths can work on any type of UPVC or composite door multi-point locking system, whether it is broken or simply needs realigning.


We specialise in multi-point lock gearbox replacement for composite and UPVC doors. A repair of this nature is very much cheaper than a full mechanism replacement. This type of repair replaces the main internal mechanism of the multi-point lock meaning there is no need to replace the full mechanism.


When it comes to UPVC window locks and doors there’s a range of reasons why you may need a repair, whether it’s broken or damaged or you may require a lock replacement. TMB Locksmiths have a wealth of experience and will only provide the most suitable solution.


It is not always the lock that is the problem on your UPVC door. Sometimes if the door is not properly aligned with the frame, or has slipped slightly, it can be difficult to engage the multipoint locking mechanism. In this case it can take several attempts to lock or unlock the door. You may even feel that you have to lift the door slightly to get it to lock. This problem is something that we at TMB Locksmiths can easily deal with. Making small adjustments to the alignment of the door of a few mm can usually sort this type of problem. It can also usually be done for a fraction of the price charged by a double glazing company.

If you are worried about your existing locks and how secure they may or may not be, contact TMB Locksmiths today, for free advice.
