In order to keep the doors and windows to a “high” and safe standard also after a couple of years it’s important to maintain them properly. We have gathered some advises below, and if you want to get more information you can visit our website: http://www.locksecure.nl/slotenmaker-utrecht.
Like other technical equipment, locks and keys must be handled in order to work well. Maintenance requirements vary depending on usage frequency, load and environment. Different types of locks and the different parts of a lock must have different types of service. Wrong service can in the long run destroy a lock, so it’s important to think about it! Keys that are widely used wear and work worse. Worn keys should be replaced.
Padlock Padlock type locking brackets – such as the ABLOY PL series – NEVER be lubricated in the keyhole. Only grease where the locking strap enters the lock. Use a long-term fat intended for this purpose. Padlock with cylinder should be serviced with lock spray – NEVER fat! Hanging out of doors outdoors should be seen at least twice a year.

Hinges: Do not forget to review all hinges at least once a year. Make sure that any screws are seated properly. Loose screws impair the door’s function, increase wear and tear and facilitate burglary. The black dust coating that easily settles on the hinges is best prevented by regular maintenance and lubrication. Use a long-acting grease, NOT oil.
