On a uPVC and composite door, the locking strip is called a 'multipoint lock'. This is the part which runs down the edge of the door and keeps the door secure when locked.
There is every chance that at some point after years of use this will fail. Not to worry because this does not mean a new door as uPVC Door Repairs Doncaster specialise in the repair of all types of these doors regardless of the age of the door.
The original supplier will no doubt be no longer trading and the ones that are, will try to sell you a new door. Arguing that parts are no longer available. We do not fit new doors, only repair old ones with new original parts, watch our video to find out more...

It may be that the door is still open but will not lock. While the door is still open, try lifting the handle and turning the key to lock. If the door will still not lock, then there is every chance the multipoint lock has failed.
There can be a variety of reasons why these problems have occurred. If the door has gone out of alignment and this has made it difficult to lock, it may be the reason for failure. The average life-span for a multipoint lock is in the region of 10-12 years. Any shorter than this and it could be that you have been unlucky and that it is a defect on the mechanism itself.
