Has anyone else had a problem accessing the Screwfix web site. I was looking
for a replacement front door but the pages are so slow to open.
On the subject of a new upvc front door I have had considerable opposition
from the wife over the handle. She finds that most of the door handles are
quite large and ugly. She only wants something the size of a yale lock with
a pull too handle. Anyone seen a double glazed upvc wood grained door with
a small handle?
UPVC doors are very flexible and hence need three point locking (it
has nothing to do with "extra security", without it they flap in the
wind). Three point locking involves quite a lot of mechanical losses
and the big handle is needed to make everything get into place and
pull the door shut. If you want a Yale lock size door closer you
will need to find a motorised door!
