Ensuring Your UPVC Doors and Windows are Locked Correctly
The first way in which you can ensure that your UPVC locks are secure is ensuring that doors are being closed correctly. UPVC locks are a lot more secure than other locks but only when the locking system is engaged correctly and it is important to bear in mind that even the most secure door is only as secure as its locking systems. Some just turn their key in the lock of their UPVC door handle without lifting the handle or engaging the locking mechanism on their UPVC window handles and this leaves them at risk to intruders.
Should your UPVC locking system not be engaged correctly, this could also affect the way in which you can make an insurance claim if your UPVC locking system is deemed to have not been operating correctly so it’s extremely important to ensure that your locking systems are engaged correctly to protect you from intruders.
