A locksmith is a professional who specialises in the installation, repair, and maintenance of locks and security systems. They are skilled in working with various types of locks, such as traditional key and tumbler, electronic, and combination locks. 

  • Installing new locks and door hardware (Fresh Installation)
  • Repairing damaged locks and keys
  • Re-keying locks (changing locks so that they work with new keys)
  • Providing emergency lockout services (such as when someone is locked out of their home or car) Normally on demand 24/7 
  • Post-burglary Repairs, securing forced doors and emergency repairs

Locksmiths may also offer security assessments and recommendations to help clients improve the security of their homes or businesses. Some locksmiths may specialise in certain types of locks or security systems, such as high-security locks or access control systems.

The mechanism used to identify the locks on uPVC doors involves lifting the handles and turning the key to secure them. These locks are commonly found on double-glazed doors and are now becoming popular on new composite doors as well. One notable advantage of these locks is that they secure the door to the frame in three different positions (top, bottom, and middle), in contrast to traditional locks that have only one position. However, maintaining these locks can be more intricate and costly if a replacement becomes necessary. The lock itself resembles a Euro lock cylinder and can be easily substituted with anti-drill and anti-snap locks, which we recommend as a suitable replacement option.

If you encounter difficulty in lifting the handles when the door is closed, it usually indicates that the door is not properly shut or that the mechanism responsible for the locking process is misaligned with the frame. To prevent expensive repairs or potential security risks, we suggest contacting a qualified locksmith to examine the door and realign it with the frame. Our locksmiths are available for adjustments and maintenance of these locks, and you can conveniently book their services by calling our office number at 0800 707 4203.

Repairing an intercom system can vary widely depending on the specific issues you’re facing and the type of intercom system you have. Here’s a general guide to help you troubleshoot and potentially repair common intercom system problems.  Before attempting any repairs, identify the specific issue with your intercom system. Is it not powering on? Is the audio quality poor? Are certain units not communicating with each other? Pinpointing the problem will help you focus your troubleshooting efforts.

If the intercom system isn’t powering on, ensure that it’s receiving power. Check the power source, circuit breaker, and any fuses. Replace any blown fuses or reset tripped breakers.  Make sure all cables and wires are properly connected. Loose or damaged connections can cause communication issues. Inspect cables for physical damage and replace them if necessary.

If you’re experiencing poor audio quality, ensure that the speakers and microphones are clean and not obstructed. Check for any frayed or damaged cables affecting audio transmission.  If certain units aren’t communicating with each other, first make sure that they are powered on and connected properly. Check for any settings that might be blocking communication or causing interference.

Some modern intercom systems have digital components that can be configured through software settings. Check the user manual for guidance on how to adjust settings related to volume, channel, privacy modes, and more.  Interference from other electronic devices can disrupt intercom communication. Ensure that there are no electronic devices nearby that could be causing interference. Try changing the channel or frequency to see if that improves communication.  If possible, test the malfunctioning unit with a working unit. This can help determine if the issue lies with the specific unit or the entire system.

Number and code locks are a type of lock that uses a combination of numbers or letters to secure a door, gate, or another entry point. They are also known as digital locks or electronic locks.  These locks typically have a keypad or touchscreen interface that allows the user to enter a code or series of numbers to unlock the door. Some number and code locks also allow for multiple users to have their unique code, which can be useful in shared living spaces or workplaces. Number and code locks are often used as an alternative to traditional key locks, as they eliminate the need for physical keys and can provide greater security. They are also often used in conjunction with other security measures, such as security cameras or alarms, to provide a comprehensive security solution. Overall, number and code locks are a convenient and secure option for securing entry points and can be a good choice for homes, offices, and other buildings where multiple users need access.
