Glass door repairs

Glass Door Repairs

Generally, glass doors are specified to give a clear view through them as they have no frame and to give the appearance that they are not there.

Most are attached to the surrounding structure by means of patch clamp fittings or rails which hold the glass in place. These parts need to be correctly tightened with a torque wrench to ensure that there is no movement and have service items fitted which will wear over time and usage.

Many of the common faults are due to lack of maintenance or people are unaware of these serviceable parts and think they need a new door system.

Common issues and problems for glass doors which need repairing are:

  • Out of alignment causing glass to touch adjacent glass or frame
  • Door handles loose
  • Door not secured at the top
  • Cover plates loose or missing
  • Closing too fast
  • Difficult to lock and having to lift it up to close
  • Not closing or not opening fully
  • Catching on the floor causing damage
  • Access control or electronic lock not always engaging








We also offer service contract agreements which include preventative maintenance to give you piece of mind at the fraction of the cost of a major component failure to keep your business operational and compliant. Particularly we have a specific schedule of work we carry out to ensure that all of the patch fittings and clamps are at the correct force to grip the glass and stop it from moving and keep your doors in alignment. To back this up we carry the serviceable parts for glass doors from the leading manufacturers such as Dorma and Geze on our vans.

My glass door is difficult to lock, can you help?
Yes of course, many issues with locks are not a problem with the lock it is the fact that the door is not aligned correctly. This means that the latch or hook lock cannot go into the keep easily which means you will require more force on your key.
