LBP locksmiths attended a house in Rottingdean. The customers UPVC door lining had rusted along with the old Multipoint Lock unit (MPL). It took significant effort to remove due to the rust. The new MPL locking unit was fitted and we cleaned up the door with a UPVC cleaner. However, these locks can also depreciate through time.
Multipoint locks (MPL) are more secure than standard uPVC locks because there are more than 1 locking points. A typical MPL has one solid deadbolt, paired with a “live” latch and at least two other sturdy bolts.
Here’s what you need to know about this type of lock:
- It’s called “multipoint” because it has numerous locking mechanisms. Doors with MPLs are much more secure.
- MPL’s are recognised by UK insurance companies and may bring down your home insurance premium. The level of security is better for commercial applications like shops and industrial
- MPL’s can reduce wear and tear of the door hinges as the load is spread across different locking points.
