An update from Windowparts Ltd.

An update from Windowparts Ltd.
Windowparts has reopened for some time now and as things are slowly getting back to normal with more and more shops reopening I thought to give an update about what we are doing to make sure that we are doing our part to help keep people safe while ensuring that you get the spares and repairs you need.
We are currently operating with a reduced staff to keep contact with others reduced and to allow for us to keep a two meter distance to adhere to social distancing rules. In our stores we have installed screens to minimise face to face contact between our staff and our customers so that both parties can remain as safe as possible while still allowing them to purchase the parts they need. Hand sanitiser is available to help avoid illness when contact is unavoidable such as when purchasing an item.
For any further updates that may happen from Windowparts please look to our website at www.windowparts.co.uk or to our Facebook page.

Understanding Multipoint Locks

Image
Identifying the different multipoint locks
You may be looking to replace damaged parts on your doors or to strengthen the security of your home. It can be a little overwhelming at first seeing the variety of terms used and the varying specifications across each one, especially when there are so many types and variations. With this blog post you should reach a better understanding of what the different pieces of product information mean.
Deadbolt, Hook/ Pins, Hook/ Roller, Mushroom Cams (often referred to just as cams), Round Pins, Small hooks/ Pins, Hookbolt, Rollers. Without having seen these before, the names probably don't mean a whole lot. Below are a selection of different multipoint locks with these names, identifying which part of the lock the name is referring to.



Next up I have drawn up a technical graphic to help explain the measurements given with multipoint lock specifications.

Here's how you can keep your home warm this winter

Image
Winter seems to be here early this year with temperatures already reaching the negatives. 



Visit our website at www.windowparts.co.uk
Keep your home warm this winter by replacing your old gasket windows seals. As seals start to get old they become less and less effective as the rubber starts to harden and become brittle. When this starts to happen the gaskets are not able to form into the shape of the gaps in the windows letting out the warm air from your home.

Keep your heating costs down this year by keeping out draught by repairing your windows with the Flexi Universal Repair Gasket designed to fit 95% of windows. This saves you the need to know exactly what type you are currently using.

The Flexi Repair Gasket Systems will cover gaps up to 7.3mm and is able to compress down to as little as 2mm, they are available as Wedge or flipper gaskets and the flipper version of this product will act as a bubble gasket when the window is closed.
