Different types of patio door
Patio doors used to mean sliding doors, but now we use the term loosely for all glass doors opening onto the garden usually at the rear or side of houses. Patio doors can include French doors, sliding doors and bifold doors. They also come in different materials such as PVCu, wood and metal. This diversity means that patio doors have many kinds of locks.
There are lots of different locking systems, depending on the type of patio door and its fabric. Wooden French doors often have 5-lever mortice locks at top and bottom. Sometimes they have a mortice lock on the primary door and a bolt on the slave. Many modern PVCu and composite double doors have multi-point locks. Sliding doors with multi-point locks use hook bolts to fasten the door to the frame. Bifold doors usually have a multi-point locking system, often with the additional security of a deadbolt.
Whatever type of patio door you have we can replace it like-for-like. Our locksmiths carry a wide range of the most common types of locks for French doors, sliding doors and bifold doors. We can even replace unusual locks.
If you would like to upgrade your patio doors’ security, we would be pleased to offer you advice and do the work for you. We can provide some different solutions for different types of patio door.
We can provide extra security for your patio doors such as ant-snap cylinders, deadbolts or shoot bolts.
We can add extra security to French doors and sliding doors. Top and bottom bolts are a way of keeping your French doors secure. Intruders used to bypass the locks of sliding doors by lifting them off their runners. Most modern sliding doors have eradicated this weakness, and have multi-point locks. We can enhance the security of your sliding doors by fitting extra locks such as deadbolts or a sliding door lock. Modern bifold doors also have multi-point locks, but we can increase the lock’s effectiveness by adding other security measures such as twin point locks or drop bolts.
