UPVC and composite doors require a minimum of three locking points for insurance purposes. This can be achieved with hooks, rollers, anti-slip bars, bolts, or a combination of these styles, all commonly found on the doors of Stirlingshire homes.

Various points on the door must align with the frame for the lock to be fully engaged. If the door is slightly out of alignment, it can cause unnecessary strain on the lock when being closed. Over time, this can lead to major failures of the moving parts inside the mechanism. However, this issue can often be rectified and realigned by one of our UPVC door engineers in Stirling.
