New business

I was asked to quote on changing the locks on 2 doors on a commercial property in Basildon.  The doors had 2 euro cylinders on each. I quoted for 4 ABS cylinders all with the same keys and 3 extra keys. The customer agreed with the price and i returned to fit them now the  customer has piece of mind that any one with a old key cannot enter the property.

UPVC Door handles

I was asked by a customer to have a look at a composite door because the door had to be locked all the time otherwise anyone could walk in.I removed the handles to check the mechanism to see if there lock had a centre case which would allow the door to be shut and the the outside handle would not open the door. The centre case had 2 spindle holes so all it needed was new handles, i took some measurements contacted the supplier.  Rang the customer gave them a price,they wanted the job done.i ordeered the handles and when they arrived i fitted them whilst i was there i advised they had a thumb turn cylinder fitted so the could lock the door and not run the risk of being locked out because they left the key on the inside
