Is you current UPVC door lock out of date of broken, have you seen a better one on a friends door and are thinking about replacing or installing one on your own door? There are a whole range of UPVC lock types available on the market. Whether you have an exterior door that you want to secure or you have interior doors that you want to be able to lock and unlock, you will find an option to work for you. 1. Multi point UPVC locks When a handle is turned, a series of roller cams secure the door. The handle can either be locked in place by a key or simply turned from the inside to lock the cams in position. The more cams that are in place down the length of the door, the more secure the system. 2. Keyed UPVC door locks Classic keyed systems will tend to incorporate a cylinder system. One reason that you should use this type of door lock is because of the level of security that is offered versus for example a multi point system with a handle but no key to secure the door. This type of lock of course requires a key to be able to lock and unlock it, so you can be sure that it will be harder for a thief to get in. It is typically installed on storm doors, patio doors, and any other type of doors that need to be safely secured.
Of course, this is not the type of door lock that you want for a typical home. Same with what was mentioned, you can choose from a variety of door locks. You can find the regular lock. This is the most common and the simplest type of door locks. When using this, you have to install the part of it, which has a hole, on the wall closest to the door and the bolt on the swinging part of it. You have to put them at the exact horizontal position. The problem with this door lock is that it can only be opened and closed from the inside. Keys cant be used with them. This is why there will be no chances for you to come in when it is locked. It is useless when a family wants to go out because the entire home will be very wide open to thieves. The same goes with the chain lock. The only difference with this is that a chain is used instead of the "hole" installed in the wall.
Another type of lock that can be used to secure the sliding glass door in your home is one that is placed on the glass up against the door that slides. This type, like the one that goes at the bottom, is very effective in keeping people from being able to open the door and come through it. One thing that people usually do not like about this type is the visibility of it is not very aesthetically pleasing; however, it is an effective way to lock your sliding door. These are just a couple of the sliding glass door locks that you will be able to use to keep your sliding door secured against burglars. If you want to make sure that every part of your home is secured, then you must make sure that you have a proper lock for your sliding door. By taking the time to find a lock that you want to use, you will be able to give your home the protection needed when you are not around. This will make the trips that you take away from home more enjoyable because you will not have to worry about someone entering your home through your sliding glass door.
