Adjustable UPVC door restrictors
We supply and fit adjustable door restrictors for your UPVC double glazed porch doors, French doors, conservatory doors, front and back doors. The door restrictors provide adjustable resistance to stop your door from slamming shut or swinging too far. Also the restrictor stops the door from open and hitting the wall or your car parked on the drive.
Strong winds can break UPVC Door Hinges
Due to the recent windy weather, I have helped a number of customers with broken door hinges. The most common hinge to break is the top hinge. This is due to the weight of the door hanging primarily on the top hinge. I can source most types of UPVC front and back door hinges, including Flag hinges or Butt hinges. Once the new hinge is fitted the door is good as new again.
Some styles of door hinge have been discontinued, therefore all the hinges will need replacing but this is not a problem.
Prevention is better than cure, why not fit a door restrictor?
If you are having problems with your doors being blown open or your visitors/children swing the door back against the wall, why not fit a door restrictor.
Door restrictors can be fitted to most UPVC doors (non visible) and not only does it stop the door from swinging right round, the door restrictors also have a handy adjustable friction system.
I have even seen many cases where the door has swung back so violently that it has ripped a section of door or framework out and damaged the door, frame or hinges beyond repair.

Child Safety Window Hinges
If you have young children, you may be concern about the large opening of your windows upstairs?
We can solve this problem in one trip and change your existing window hinges with a specially designed pair of hinge. The hinge only allows the window to be open a small amount. However, if you decide you want the window open more. Then there is a child safety release button that allows only the adult to open the window further. These type of window hinges, are the same hinges that the local council requires all landlords to have fitted on their properties.

I stock both locking with a key and non locking double glazed window safety catches, so you can choose which type suits your windows best. We can fit you child safety catches to your UPVC double glazed windows if required.
If you are thinking of letting your property it might be worth fitting child proof window locks before your new tenants move in.
Also to pass some building regulations child safety catches are normally required, just give us a call and we will be happy to give you a price to supply and fit child safety catches.
Please note that The Window Wizard only offers repairs to domestic homes as commercial properties often use completely different hardware.
