Composite Door Handles
There are a wide range of reasons why Composite door handles stop working properly, and it can be frustrating and expensive to think that the whole door needs replacing as a result. This isn’t always the case, as there a number of solutions and methods that Selkent Glazing & Locks can use to help with a faulty Composite door handle.
Extensive use, as well as time, can contribute to the problems door handles can have, and they can become difficult to turn and unlatch. As well as this, there can be problems with the lock in Composite doors, and the deadbolt can become stuck, making it difficult to open the door.
Problems like these can be caused by a range of things, including the following:
Overtightened screws can result in the handle’s backplate pinching the lock, thereby preventing the spring from working effectively
The handle’s internal springs may bind against the inside of the handle backplate if they’re not properly lubricated
Sometimes, the handle is prevented from operating properly if there is insufficient clearance behind the handle’s backplate, stopping it from turning freely
The cassette (spring mechanism) can fail within the lock or lever handle
Selkent Glazing & Locks look to repair the handle initially before replacing and there are a number of ways in which we can resolve such problems, including removing, cleaning and lubricating the door handle itself.
We will be happy to provide you with the advice you need when it comes to repairing or replacing your door handle, and we will be delighted to show you the most suitable products for your particular needs.
