MPL mechanism

ASL locksmiths were called to attend a Brighton property to supply and fit a Yale multi point locking unit (MPL) for a UPVC door.

Once corrosion & rust has spread often causes the locking points to fail, so we retrofitted it with a new multi point locking unit, installed an ISEO barrel, a satin handle and full length brand new strikes to keep the frame secured at multiple points. The result is a robust, almost like new UPVC door.

If you need repairs, installation, or replacement for your UPVC doors, windows or double glazing? You’re at the right place, ASL locksmiths have complete many UPVC jobs and can help you secure your property. Repairs are better for the environment. For a fast response call or contact us.
