Tilt and Slide Doors

Tilt and Slide Door Repairs in Sheffield

Tilt and slide doors are very popular in the Sheffield region. If you are experiencing a problem with your door, let Hallam Locksmiths help you out .

The Door Will Not Open.

If you find that either the handle will not turn or just the opposite and spins all the way around, there is every chance the drive gear has failed. This “drive gear” is what moves the locking points around the edge of the door. It will have failed due to wear and tear or if it had become difficult to lock, this resistance will not have helped.

Hallam Locksmiths will be able to open your tilt and slide door and replace the drive gear for you, at a fraction of the cost of a replacement door.

The Door Has Come Away At The Top!

Tilt and slide doors are held at the top by a pair of “gliders”. These after time wear out. The first you will know about this will be when the door wants to “topple” out on top of you. If you can, slide the door back into a closed position and ring Hallam Locksmiths.

We can exchange the gliders and the door will operate smoothly as before.

The Door Is Difficult To Lock

This can be the result of a few different issues. The door itself slides back and forth by the means of what we term the “bottom bogey”.

It could be a spring that has failed, which helps to locate the door when closing.

There is a connecting bar which keeps the door square with the frame. The bar can at times work loose.

The bottom bogey can also drop and this will cause a problem moving the door in place.

The majority of the time, the bottom bogey just needs a service to get the door closing smoothly.

Replacement Handles

Hallam Locksmiths carry two types of tilt and slide handles in case a replacement is required. Long and short in white,brass and silver. If you need a new handle, give us a call.
