Emergency locksmith case study, St Julians, St Albans.
The team at Millennium Locksmiths were called out in April 2020 to a detached property is Watling Street, St Julians, St Albans, AL1 2QA by the owners who were experiencing problems with a lock on a uPVC front door. We attended the property within 30 minutes as promised and diagnosed the issues with the failing lock and front door very quickly. The issue was with the door mechanism, the client had ongoing problems aligning and locking the door. In normal circumstances the door could have been aligned, but due to the long delay in calling in a locksmith, the mechanism was significantly damaged and beyond repair. We were able to replace the door mechanism on the spot as have a fully stocked van with the appropriate parts. The customer was so impressed that he asked the locksmith, to attend his parent’s property in Abbots Langley afterwards to resolve an issue with jamming patio doors at the rear of their property. Due to social distancing guidelines, the locksmith phoned by prior to arriving and went to the back of the property using the side gate as agreed. He was able to resolve the problem swiftly to the satisfaction of the elderly clients leaving everybody very happy.
Our services at Millennium are not just limited to letting people into their locks cars or homes, as we also fit new upgraded anti-snap locks for those that are looking to protect further & safeguard their home. Locks are a vital element of a home’s safety, so it makes sense for a lot of families & residents to upgrade their locks especially if they have moved into a new home. It doesn’t matter if you own a home or business, as both types of properties need some form of lock on the door. Locks are essential to protect the property from trespassers & burglars. With commercial robberies becoming more common, a business owner should consider if their locks need upgrading.
uPVC Lock/Mechanism Repair/Replacement
The increase in uPVC or composite doors as opposed to traditional wooden doors has led to more sophisticated locking mechanisms. Most of us are familiar with the appearance of the Euro cylinder in the middle of the door, but the cylinder is just one part. The key turns a ‘Cam’ in the centre – a little lever which then operates the centre part of the mechanism. This is basically the brain of the lock as it converts the rotational turn of the cam to movement which operates the ‘mechanism’ of the lock – usually seen as a metal strip along the edge of the door. The mechanism can include hooks and deadbolts (which extend and retract), rollers or mushroom bolts (which slide up and down) along the edge of the mechanism strip. All of these fit into corresponding apertures in the frame to secure the door along the whole of its edge rather than just at the level of the lock resulting in a greater level of security and reassurance for the owner.
As with so many things in life most of these parts are available in a variety of standards. The British standard for locks is BS3621 and the insurance industry requires locks to meet this standard.
Millennium Locksmiths take pride in stocking many makes and types of cylinders & mechanisms as standard (dozens and dozens of them!), so we are able to complete 99% of jobs in a single visit. Occasionally a door mechanism is a special order part – in those circumstances please be reassured that we have overnight locks with which to secure the door so you can still use it whilst we wait for delivery of your specific part – usually just a few days.
